Trump, Cuomo and the
mystery of the missing masks

Original Article

Posted By: Harlowe, 3/30/2020 10:43:12 PM

President Trump on Sunday speculated that New York state hospitals are running short of respirator masks to protect doctors and nurses from the coronavirus because supplies are being stolen. “How do you go from 10 to 20 [thousand masks per week] to 300,000? Ten [thousand] to 20,000 masks, to 300,000,” Trump said at a briefing by the coronavirus task force in the Rose Garden. “Something is going on, and you ought to look into it as reporters. Are they going out the back door?”(Snip)But earlier this month, Cuomo himself said that people were stealing face masks and other medical equipment from area hospitals.

Comments:

Governor Cuomo stated earlier in the month that people were not taking simply two or three, but “just actual thefts of those products.” He asked state police to investigate and suggested looking “at places that are selling masks, medical equipment, protective wear, feed the anxiety.” Similar thefts are occurring in Boston according to hospital officials.

Trump did not elaborate on what gave rise to his suspicion. Reporters are both stupid and lazy. President Trump was quite clear that the information he received was from the Henry Schein CEO that had years of experiencing how the order patterns of his customers behaved. He was skeptical that the hospital would need to scale from a normal 20,000 masks to 300,000 in such a short time. It would be a simple matter for a real reporter to see if this was a legitimate need or if something else was going on. It wasn't Trump's opinion but the CEO of the supply company who should know what makes sense.

This is so typical of Democrat-run cities and states. Rampant corruption and criminal behavior. And then they blame others for the results of their ongoing leniency and acceptance of such corruption and criminality. And now they're fleeing like rats deserting a sinking ship.

Since when is it the President's job to make sure every medical facility has an adequate supply of masks?

Under Saint Cuomo, you can steal whatever you want and you'll never have to post any stinking bail, nor will you be punished for it. His prisons are being emptied out because his precious criminals may get the virus. NY is gulag for citizens but a gold mine for illegals, jihadis, and routine criminals.

Trump told them the bare facts. 10,000 masks use in one time period normally. 300,000 masks used in the same time period now. As he said something pretty close to, 'I can understand 20,000 or 30,000 masks, even 40,000 maskes....but at 300,000 masks... what is going on. You smart reporters, if you were good reporters, might go and see what is going on. Are they going out the back door.' Seems like a really good question. Perhaps they are actually using 30 times as many masks, but that does seem to be an amazing increase in useage. No wonder there is a shortage. Try to start using 30 times as many ANYTHING and see what happens pretty quickly. Anything.

“We’re creating a stockpile,” Cuomo said. “For someone to say, ‘Well, the warehouse has equipment in it, you should be using that equipment today,’ So, is Andy boy going to give up some of his "stockpile" if another state is in drastic need of some of it? I doubt it.

Chinese officials, desperate to recast the country as a global leader that has conquered the coronavirus, have been saying that its death rates are decreasing in the city of Wuhan. The problem, residents say, is that the numbers don't add up.(Snip)Despite China's propaganda pushers being all smiles for the international community, residents told Radio Free Asia that Beijing's claims that there were only 2,500 deaths in Wuhan is far from reality. For more than a week, seven large funeral homes that serve Wuhan have been handing out the cremated remains of about 500 people to their families every day.

Wuhan locals claim coronavirus has killed 42,000 people in the city alone, more than ten times the national figure claimed by Chinese authorities. The killer bug, which originated in Wuhan in China's Hubei Province has claimed the lives of 3,300 people and infected more than 81,000. Of those, 3,182 deaths were reported in Hubei Province. But residents in Wuhan claim 500 urns have been handed out to grieving families every day from seven separate funeral homes all serving the city. This means the ashes of 3,500 people are distributed every 24 hours.
