Gohmert had been scheduled to fly aboard Air Force One on Wednesday with President Donald Trump to Midland, Texas, where the President is fundraising and touring an oil rig. He tested positive for coronavirus on Wednesday morning during a pre-flight screening at the White House, a person familiar with the situation told CNN. Because of the positive test, Gohmert is not traveling with the President.

"When you write your story, can you include the fact that [Gohmert] requires full staff to be in the office, including three interns, so that 'we could be an example to America on how to open up safely,'" the aide added. "When probing the office, you might want to ask how often were people berated for wearing masks."

It'll be so cool if the virus passes from Barr's nose to Trump's rectum.

Jokes aside, though, it'd actually be quite lovely if William Barr simply succumbed to the virus and died in a puddle of sweat and nasal mucus.

Dr. Osterholm: Americans will be living with the coronavirus for decades

Quote:
Published: Aug. 1, 2020 at 10:59 a.m. ET

Dr. Michael Osterholm, epidemiologist at the University of Minnesota, recognized the coronavirus would become a pandemic as early as January

MarketWatch: What do you think the biggest failure in the U.S. response has been?

Osterholm: Weíve failed because we declared victory over the virus when we had no business doing so. This virus has been poised to be transmitted in our communities, and we thought we had done enough to get it down. Itís like a fire crew. ďI only put out half the forest fire but you know, I put out half so weíre done.Ē And then look what happened. Itís burned more acres since we gave up than it did before we gave up.

MarketWatch: One of the things Iím pretty interested in is the talk and the hope around a vaccine. Do you think we have misconceptions about what it means when we have a vaccine?

Michael Osterholm: Everyone is looking at the vaccine as being a light switch: on or off. And I look at it as a rheostat, thatís going to take a long time, from turning it on from its darkest position to a lightest position. If youíre anticipating a light switch, youíre going to be concerned, confused, and in some cases very disappointed in what it might look like in those first days to months with a vaccine.

MarketWatch: I saw a piece in The Atlantic this week and I thought they positioned it well. They described it as the beginning of the end.

Osterholm: It wonít be. We will be dealing with this virus forever. Effective and safe vaccines and hopefully ones with some durability will be very important, even critical tools, in fighting it. But the whole world is going to be experiencing COVID-19 Ďtil the end of time. Weíre not going to be vaccinating our way out of this to eight-plus billion people in the world right now. And if we donít get durable immunity, weíre potentially looking at revaccination on a routine basis, if we can do that. Weíve really got to come to grips with actually living with this virus, for at least my lifetime, and at the same time, it doesnít mean we canít do a lot about it.

Yeah, I think it's too late for this not to become endemic and a recurring thing in humanity.

New treatments will hopefully lower the death rate and vaccines will hopefully provide some more resistance, but the boat for containment sailed away back in January, maybe February at the latest.

At least we know we'll be judiciously allocating our resources to ensure that the people who need the vaccine most will get it first: movie stars, pop singers, and NFL players.

I love how the scientists are now saying what I’ve been saying since March. We have to live with it. We missed the boat on containment and now it’s gonna be around for a while. Even countries who have contained it (like NZ) have done so by shutting their borders which is a temporary fix to a long term problem.

Flu vaccination rates in the USA are already very low. Fewer people are willingly getting vaccinated against other viruses like Chicken Pox, Measles, etc.

anti mask types who deny the reality of COVID are going to shift to refusing vaccinations. And Fox news, the Kochs, and other right wing groups are going to make gaining herd immunity to this and other viruses nearly impossible.

The US needs to mandate all citizens who are not immunocompromised be vaccinate. If the Feds dont/can't do that this is never going to end

Itís not rewriting. I said that we were too late to stop the virus, lockdowns donít work and the only way to beat it when weíre this late in the game is to let things open (limit capacity) and wear masks.

And thatís what everyoneís doing. Because weíre going to be dealing with this for years. We just now have a cure. Masks.

China literally locked people in their houses and didn't let anyone out of Wuhan. They did all they could once they realized what was happening. It was up to everyone else to contain where they could. Most countries did, and we sort of did, for a little while. If we had closed up shop for 6-8 weeks in March we could have stopped almost all of the deaths. I'm not saying China is blameless, but it's not there fault that people traveled with the virus in the modern world. And they did not hide the death rate, if anything they over-estimated. We should have known what to do.

As it was, we opened early and never had a real lock down. Even starting late, if we had done two whole months, the vast majority of deaths would not have happened.

It would have been in the population, but at much lower levels, to where contact tracing would have been possible.

The USA fucked the world.

China knew about it for months and then killed doctors that tried to expose that China knew about it for months. And then they hid their numbers and didn’t shut down travel to the world. Fucking CCP simp

You claimed that the United States was ahead of the entire world in reacting to the virus, appeared to suggest that the herd immunity approach previously taken by Sweden was an ideal public health strategy, warned that lockdowns were threatening imminent anarchy, apparently failed to grasp the concept of "flattening the curve" or the impact of successful health guidelines upon initially projected death statistics, and also seemed to reject the idea of the second spike in deaths we're now witnessing after they had first declined. I honestly cannot call to mind a single member with a worse track record on this subject.

If Fauci doesn't think a lockdown will be helpful in August, that'll be because people like you weren't listening in March. Had you perfectly replicated the New Zealand model and seen an identical death rate eventuate, fewer than two thousand people would have died in the United States and you would now be in a position to discontinue all social distancing. I do not understand how you can portray that as nothing more than "a temporary fix to a long term problem" unless you were making a philosophical statement on mortality and the inevitability of death.
