Flu vaccines are not designed to prevent outbreak. They affect symptoms and severity. Some people with flu vaccines won’t get it but it’s not like a measles vaccine that makes people completely immune.

He is obviously a control freak.  His desire to control information is more that of an authoritarian ruler than just your run of the mill control freak.  I think his desire to control information is also the basis for his 20,000 lies and his perpetual distortions.  Lying is a form of controlling information.  

Remember the saying "knowledge is power,"  He wants to be the only one who can fit the pieces of knowledge together,   That desire for power is also reflected in his efforts to distract us from the ravages of the virus.  The deaths don't seem to disturb him.  He is in effect arrogating to himself the power of life and death and he doesn't want us to focus on that.  He has no interest whatsoever in the political system we have, preferring to be authoritarian and controlling.  That's what scares me the most.

It actually is a news story. When I googled it, three news sites popped up.  Your news might not cover until there is more news.

What did they say about it?

 I said I'm not blaming him for the virus, only for poor leadership.  So you're saying everyone thinks DT is doing a great job on the virus?

The poll also revealed that 60 percent of Americans disapprove of Trump's handling of the outbreak, while just 38 percent approve of the job he has done. Twenty-four percent of those surveyed identified as Republican, and 69 percent of participants were either Democrats or independents.

There are numerous articles from a variety of sources that all give the timeline for H1N1. You said Obama stopped testing, but he didn't until the vaccine and numbers declined.  Now you want to discuss the age range if those affected.  Neither a Obama nor Trump control who the virus affect.  It's an illogical smoke blowing topic change and I'm not going down that garden path.

repeating myself

Testing was ended 4/2010 AFTER a vaccine was available and positive tests slowed dramatically in 12/2009.

A poll with 24% R is already biased. I never blamed anyone for H1N1, I just said it was handled very badly and it was.

Directly from your post.   This isn't blaming the administration?


"How quickly we forget.  60 million Americans got H1N1 and the administration at the time did nothing except stop testing so there weren’t any good numbers to talk about in the news."

KEY FACTS

Some 58% disapprove of Trump’s handling of the Covid-19 pandemic, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll of 1,115 people taken Monday and Tuesday.    https://www.forbes.com/sites/carlieporterfield/2020/06/24/trumps-coronavirus-approval-rating-sinks-to-new-low-as-cases-surge/#1f44d12168ef

 

KEY POINTS

  • President Donald Trump’s approval rating on how he’s handling the economy has dropped dramatically in the last month, according to a new poll.
  • The poll, from Quinnipiac University, shows that only 44% of people approve of the way Trump is handling the U.S. economy, compared with 52% from the month before.
