I can list those that are in no way at all compatible with your claim that the virus is rapidly dying out almost everywhere. These are the countries from the Hopkins list with more than 10k confirmed positives to date that are in no way at all compatible with your claim as things currently stand

USA
Brazil
Russsia
India
Peru
Chile
Iran
Mexico
Saudi Arabia
Bangladesh
South Africa
Columbia
Sweden
Egypt
Ecuador
Argentina
Indonesia
UAE
Kuwait
Ukraine
Iraq
Oman
Philipines
Poland
Dominican Republic
Panama
Bolivia
Romainia
Bahrain
Armenia
Israel
Nigeria
Kazakhstan
Guatemala
Ghana
Molodova
Honduras
Azerbaijan
Cameroon
Algeria
Nepal
Morocco

These are ones that are 'arguable'

Pakistan
Turkey
Qatar
Belarus
Portugal
Afganistan
Serbia
Czechia

And these are the minority that are compatible with your claim, expect for the almost everywhere part of course

United Kingdom
Spain
Italy
France
Germany
Canada
China
Belgium
Netherlands
Singapore
Switzerland
Ireland
Japan
Austria
Denmark
South Korea

Done here just for you. I already knew because I look at the numbers, I do not just spout off like you do without looking.

No the sad this is YOU were wrong and even when that is demonstrated as above you will not admit you were wrong. You think that refusing to accept you are wrong even when you undeniably are is avoiding humiliation. Just another thing you are wrong about. The claim that the virus is rapidly dying out almost everywhere is plain and utter total bollocks - a fantasy that just exists in your head. The NUMBERS show this. Plonker.

My word, how desperate you are! :lol:

Now exclude the late starters and those that have increased the 'Total Cases' due to increased testing... :wink:

You know you are wrong, you know the Bell Curve of the virus is going to be your downfall - why not admit it...? :?

Within each of the categories they are highest confirmed positive to date to lowest

Yeah sure. You claimed days ago the virus is rapidly dying out almost everywhere

It is not yet doing so any where near close to 'almost everywhere'. You were wrong. Plain and simple.

Desperation is your trying to make out what you said was it is rapidly dying out almost everywhere that started early and is not testing too much. You said what you said. Even then Sweden did not 'start late' and is NOT testing more and yet daily confirmed positives are still increasing - that is NOT rapidly dying out you plonker.

By all means do keep banging on about how you were not not wrong and how humiliated I will be because you have just been proven to be wrong and how I can not accept I am wrong. Always amusing to watch a plonker in action. Just so you know 1/3rd is NOT almost everywhere.

You said what you said and it was total utter BOLLOCKS. The facts show it to be total and utter bollocks. QED

One of the most perplexing characteristics of this pandemic to me has been in the avalanche of information available. Much of it “expert” and far too often conflicting. A torrent of data. We must surely be the best (or is it worst) informed generation ever on such a matter?

Somehow though I suspect the real story won’t finally surface until the war’s well and truly over. By which time people will have moved on to other issues and interest in the Corvid saga have abated. :D

What happens when you deny reality of something like this virus and you are president. When you just say what you want to be the case regardless of reality.

https://edition.cnn.com/2020/06/26/poli ... index.html

America's single worst day of new coronavirus cases obliterated President Donald Trump's fantasyland vision of a post-Covid America -- even as he sowed new diversions in an effort to hide the reality of his leadership void in a deepening national crisis.
More than 37,000 new cases of Covid-19 were reported on Thursday, according to Johns Hopkins University data. The numbers superseded the previous darkest day of the pandemic, on April 24. The new data suggests that the sacrifices made by tens of millions of Americans who stayed at home, that cost many of them their jobs, might have been in vain. It also suggest that the aggressive state re-openings championed by Trump, who wants a quick economic reboot to boost his reelection hopes, exacerbated a situation that now seems close to tipping out of control across a swathe of southern states.
The increasing chasm between Trump's version of America and the reality of a nation falling back into an exhausting fight with the disease after a hopeful period in early May and June raises the question of how long the President can go on ignoring the situation. This is especially the case when even his allies, like Texas Republican Gov. Greg Abbott, are now admitting they're dealing with a serious problem. In places like Texas, filling hospital wards and intensive care units -- that could in a few weeks, given the normal course of the illness, be expected to lead to higher death rates -- contradict optimistic talk from politicians and especially Trump's fictional narrative that the worst is past.
"It's pretty dire," Dr. Peter Hotez, professor and dean of the National School of Tropical Medicine at Texas's Baylor College of Medicine, told CNN's Jake Tapper.
"We've got an enormous amount of community transmission. If you look at the curve of the numbers going up, it's following what we call an exponential curve, which is it looks initially flat, and then it accelerates very sharply, almost vertically. And that's where we're at right now," Hotez added.
The bad news that contradicts Trump's rosy version of a post-Covid America is not confined to Texas. Arizona's governor said Thursday the state's reopening plans are now "on pause" as a result of a major spike in coronavirus cases. Gov. Doug Ducey, a Republican, said Arizona will not be rolling back its business reopening plans, but will be requiring businesses to follow social distancing rules that are still in effect. "If they choose not to, there will be accountability, and there will be enforcement."
In California, Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom warned he would slow the state's opening if hospitals become strained as his state announced another 5,000 infections. In Ohio, Republican Gov. Mike DeWine implicitly rejected Trump's rationale for rising infections. "We have increased testing, but we do not believe this increase in cases is completely due to testing," DeWine said, confirming that hospitalizations are up.
Mississippi established its highest single-day increase of new coronavirus infections on Thursday. There are now at least 30 states reporting an increase in new cases in the past week. Of those states, 13% are reporting a 50% or greater increase.


You can not bluster your way through a viral pandemic like this one. Reality is reality and claims like"the virus is rapidly dying out almost everywhere" when it is not are stupid when they come from no bodies and deadly wen they come from a President. For the first time since he won the presidency I feel near certain he can not now win a 2nd term. He may well already be infected himself.

I believe it was a comment made few days ago on CNN by one of the commentators, that Trump asking for less Covid-19 testing to have less cases was like if less pregnancy tests were done, then there would be less babies born. :D

That's not actually true! as with everything the media give as in the form of news grabs, they are presenting his comments in a different context. The media cut what Trump said beforehand and after. CNN = king of FAKE NEWS!

Trump NEVER advocated that his people do less testing.

He basically bragged that the US has completed some 25 million Chy-na Virus tests. He continued by saying that when you do that many tests, you are bound to find Chy-na Virus. He then jokingly continued to say, with a cheeky smirk that he keeps telling his people to do less testing.

that's the Trump style. No filter whatsoever. And a blatant boast and the American testing regime which seems to be first class and on an unseen level anywhere in the world.

He said what he said. He said "So I said to my people slow the testing down please". Reporting that is not fake news. It is reporting the truth. Claiming "Trump NEVER advocated that his people do less testing" IS fake news and a LIE.
