Yes

That's pretty optimistic. Isn't it at 20000 now? People haven't started dying properly in the US yet.

Why are posters nit picking and poking fun at the CM. He has a more difficult task to do than any of us have ever had to do.

Would any of you do it any better.  No, thought not.

he should have become literate about 50 years ago which has naff all to do with the current state of affairs.

It's not that difficult really though is it? All he has to do is the following:

1. Do what the UK does only a few days later

2. Speak to a number of amateur journalists, in a calm and confident manner

Number one is a piece of piss and number two should be a piece of piss if you are CM

Are they fake or pretend dying at the moment then?

Ok, 50,000 might be a bit Conservative but will definitely not exceed 100,000

Trump's already on it. If he rolls back the precautions as is being intimated, it could reach 6 figures there.

Impeachment would be the least of his worries.

I meant the big numbers that are coming next week. New York is heading for a pretty serious situation by the looks of things.

What read from a script? Sorry, he's not making the decisions here.

Does he have someone pick up Boris' script from the waste bin?

Trump doesn't care, NY is a Democrat stronghold.

If less than 250K die worldwide, I call foul. 250K-690K die of flu each year according to official figures from WHO.

Yeah cos the measures we’ve taken to reduce the death rate of Coronavirus are exactly comparable with those taken against seasonal flu.

Donald has started killing them off himself. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/52012242

This is stupidity beyond belief. He says in a press conference that the drug may work (based on no evidence at all) and two people take some leaving one dead and one critical. HQ may be reading from a script, but these are troubled times and I'd rather he read from the script that shoot from the hip like this bellend.
