He said that with a big smile on his face. He's trying to inject a little levity instead of being all doom & gloom. His Secretario de Salud is providing all the factual stuff.

With all due respect, you seem to be obsessed with spreading panic and fear and critisizing everything and everyone.

I realize this may be your way of dealing with things, but it serves no real purpose.

I wish you well.

There is a difference between reality and lies.
I have Mexican family and friends and they do not trust Obrador.
Some State Governors have taken it upon themselves to get aggressive.
Aguasalientes is one such state and Jalisco another.

Much of my info comes there to here.

All of us here have family and friends all over the political spectrum. We have 4 major parties and several smaller ones. By and large AMLO’s critics are in opposing parties. This must always be taken into account when analyzing criticisms. While AMLO’s approval rating hovers around 60% the rest of Mexico must respect what that signifies. Few of us agree with everything he says or does, but the bottom line is most of us wish him success in most of his proposals. PANistas are the most intransigent in their criticisms of him, but most folks accept that about the PAN and take their criticisms with a grano de sal.

Amlo is at least trying to fix some of the issues that were left from the former governments. At least he is trying. The last few governments were surely inadequate It is trying times but I hope he shows good leadership which is needed now

In the US...the federal government is doing nothing. the states are in charge. I'm fortunate to be in the NYC metro region where they are (finally) taking this seriously and not waiting for Washington, DC.

Some Mexican States have done the same.
Nayarit, Aguascalientes and Jalisco that I know of
Bars have been closed for some time and large gatherings have been axed.

Your statement is not true. Do you own a TV and if so have you been following the daily breifings? The federal response, although slow in some respects, is as comprehensive as anything since World War II. Just because Marshall Law hasn’t been declared, doesn’t mean that the Federal Government is doing nothing. The Pandemic is affecting different parts of our country very differently. The large Metro areas have different challenges the lesser populated areas. That calls for different types of responses, not a federal mandate. All 50 states Governors are coordinating their responses with the federal government. They conference every single day as the situation evolves. From the economic side the federal government is all over this with a plan to revive the economy from free fall. Private industry is aligned with the government for testing, vaccine, and therapeutics. The world will once again be rescued from the Pandemic because the US will find the cure. We always do. Keep a positive attitude and do your part. The blame game can wait for another time.

So asking for a friend, is COVID-19 still a democratic hoax?

Of course Covid 19 isn’t a Democrat hoax, but the way Democrat politicians and Big Media cover the unfolding story is disingenuous as usual. As Rahm Emanuel famously said. “Don’t let a crisis go to waste” That’s the hoax, scoring political points during a time of crisis instead of uniting as one nation. For some people it’s all about politics.

You're kidding, right? The Chump did try to buy the exclusive rights from a German pharmaceutical company with the most promising treatment so far (even though they later tried to deny it). That's what I call "putting Merka first" and the hell with the rest of the world. He has failed to coordinate any of his moves with other countries (except for with Mexico) which took them by surprise and has caused all kinds of problems (especially thanks to routing out the "deep state" i.e. professionals who usually keep the nation running even when idiots like The Chump occupy the White House).

I'd say your ethnocentrism is showing. But okay, I'll play. I'm rooting on a Mexican finding a solution.

You just heaped blame on China then told us the blame game could wait. Uh huh.

I hope Mexico finds the cure and puts a very high price on it.

You are correct on that point. So let’s wait and see how each country deals with each other once the crisis is over. As a businessman doing a fair amount of trade with Chinese suppliers of components, I hope that the Corona Virus Pandemic doesn’t start a World War III level trade battle, or worse.
