Corona bug


So does anyone know someone that has got it? Or is this all fake news to crash the economy?

    Quoting  :

Were you born a stupid fuckin' idiot or did it just happen gradually?

"Across the world, the case count surpassed 265,000, with the death toll rising past 11, 000"

Which is A LOT LESS in the states,

"Last updated: March 21, 2020, 06:15 GMT
United States
Coronavirus Cases:
19,774
Deaths:
275"

Now what about the flu?

"CDC estimates* that, from October 1, 2019, through March 7, 2020, there have been"

"36,000,000 – 51,000,000
flu illnesses

17,000,000 – 24,000,000
flu medical visits

370,000 – 670,000
flu hospitalizations

22,000 – 55,000
flu deaths"

Did you need help with the big words?

Or the math?

I think it's a little of both.
'Yes" , there is a China Virus, as there has been some sort of virus every year...... and....
"No", it's not fake, but "Yes", I think the Democrats are inflating the seriousness to crash the economy because our economy was doing so awesomely with this Presidents work.

Look , according to the CDC, in the US the numbers for the average flu [not including Covid-19] from Oct 2019 to March 14 2020:

38,000,000-54,000,000 Flu illnesses

17,000,000-25,000.000 Flu medical visits

319,000-710,000 Hospitalized due to the average Flu virus

29,000-59,000 Deaths due to the average Flu virus [Oct 2019-March 2020]

Nobody says anything about that.

You can catch a cold... you can catch the average flu this time of year, or you can catch the Covid-19 if you come in contact with someone who has that.

In Italy : According to the study, 68,000 deaths were attributable to the average flu epidemics in the winter months between 2013 and 2014, and 2016 and 2017 respectively.

This is likely due to the fact that Italy has an aging population, and the elderly are more at risk, generally.

Italy still has an aging population , so with the China Flu, and the less than sanitary conditions , the China Flu is going to be worse there.

Some believe the concentration camps during world war two didn't happen. Maybe the people who is making this "fake news" got the idea from that.

Humans are the most dangerous animals on earth.

If only animals had the ability to know when to keep away from us humans they would be better off.

The problem is a lot of people could have it and unless they are specifically tested not know it. That is why it is particular concerning. To answer your question I do not know anyone yet as there are only 3 cases in my county known but how many people did they have contact with? This is serious and I do not hope you, your family or trolls get this. Please take it serious.

Not "fake news" JESUS!!!! Don't be so fucking STUPID!

There may be a lot of hype surrounding it, but stay home, wash your hands frequently and keep the cold to yourself. You DON"T want this in your household.

The 25,000 that died last year from influenza. Real. No reason to think this strain of flu isn't real either. Ask the people who had friends and family
die from this thing if it's real to them. You sound like a real irresponsible person.

QUOTING: cranezone2 : So does anyone know someone that has got it? Or is this all fake news to crash the economy?

seriously?
do you really think the world would close businesses everywhere
and lose zillions of dollars because of a joke?

for example - i dont personally know anyone
who was killed in a drive-by shooting,
but that doesnt mean ITS "fake news".

trump has destroyed so many peoples belief in the media
with an incessant hitler-like suppression
in his personal power-hungry rampage.

sure, theres some bullshit out there,
and dangerous people who spread misinformation intentionally
to victimize others for political or monetary gain.
even worse are the maggots who do it for fun as a form of vandalism.

but what happened to peoples common sense?
yes, its unfortunate that one has to learn what to believe and not to.
but it can be done.

but to automatically deny everything in the news until proven differently
is to CHOOSE to be a victim.

another example -
we all listen to or watch traffic and weather every day -
is a traffic jam "fake news" by uber and lyft?
is rain and snow "fake news" by lands end and carhardtt?

no, trump may have said for two months
that it was a hoax by the democrats
(while the intelligence department was advising of a real threat)
before finally doing something,
but NO, use common sense, this IS real.

if you dont know anyone affected (yet), be thankful.
that could change today or tomorrow,
OR it may already have and you/they just dont know it yet.

I think what he's getting at ; is this strain of flu is very real, but seems to be overly publicized, and used as cheap low brow political fodder shots against the President.

trying to understand your post -

are you rightfully dissing their question if this is a hoax
just because they dont personally know anyone affected (yet)?

or are you dissing taking this situation seriously while people are dying
just because its not as many as the flu yet?

want to make sure i understand what youre saying
so if i respond, i can do so intelligently.

virus is serious like bad flu strain. difference is more hospital visits and much longer average stay and more contageous. thanks to our goverment from top to bottom we have underpaid/slowly paid hospitals for all the services they provided for the people in our country who are too lazy to work and all our guests who sneak in illegally. now we have a hospital and supply shortage so the only thing right now is to try and stop the spread of it.

ALLEGATION: cheap low brow political fodder shots against the President

REALITY: sometimes the truth hurts those who dont tell it.
trump was advised of a serious threat as early as january
by the intelligence community. and remember, he had disbanded the
entire white house pandemic response team in 2018
WITHOUT RE[PLACING THEM - probably a sad political move
since they were from obamas administration, YET trump claims
he was LEFT a "bad system" by obama. LAME EXCUSE.

and even after having been warned, for TWO MONTHS he (and his
blind mice moron minions) downplayed the threat and insulted
those who raised alarms.

his dismissals and derogatory comments are not "fake news",
theyre on tape for anyone to see.

i guess the worse he let it get before he "responded"
the more a "hero" he thought hed look like?
pretty sad that lives apparently mean less to him than votes.

on the other hand, while im NOT AT ALL a fan of puppeteer putin,
trump learned nothing from all his time with his nose up putins ass -
russia has only about 300 cases and one death despite
having a border with china almost as long as ours with canada.
and now, they have the resources to spare
to be able to send military to assist in ittly per their request.

obviously, trumps "perfect response" was anything but,
and could have cost many lives
with his fervent denial before finally acting two months late,
and yet hes still campaigning with it.
and you minions are eating it up like flies on shit.

"That's what I mean by "Low brow political fodder" shots."

if TRUTH is "low brow political fodder shots",
then what are trumps LIES ? !
a DANGEROUS attempt to seem "in control" to try to get reelected.

he lauds "the geniuses behind him"
then contradicts every other thing they say.

the best of the best, dr fauci,
has had to hide his face to hide his frustration
as trump constantly makes claims that arent true.

god forbid, if trump ends up firing him too,
then it will be just dumb luck for him if this is finally matched
by the remaining actual medical community while hes still in office.

and NO, this isnt being political,
its SEEING AND TELLING THE TRUTH -
serious illness and death know no party lines
and it benefits from trumps arrogant mixed and misleading messages.

WE BOTH KNOW YOU KNOW IT, but just like trump you wont admit it. theres no legitimate refuting what ive written,
and so you sadly and desperately again write it off as political attacks.
"pride goeth before a fall".
but at what cost?

have a nice day

You are creating senseless irrational panic. You're the guy who runs down the street yelling misinformation. KNOCK IT OFF!! President Trump is not telling you lies.....we're not in a recession, the banks don't need any bail out... so stop being a bonehead chatting about your lowbrow political partisan anti Trump nonsense. We don't need that now. President Trump will be re-elected in November. You can bitch about that later.

is NOT being "irrational", believing trump IS,

POINTING OUT TRUMPS DEADLY LIES is NOT being "anti-trump",
its being responsible in open discussion
in an attempt to get things right,
except only in your fantasy world.

and i didnt say anything about recession and banks,
you must already know trumps in the weeds there too
without me telling you.

apparently, youre so hell-bent on keeping up dissing anything i say
that youve lost what little grip you might have had on reality.

i should be flattered that i mean that much to you, but im not.
id rather you used your energy for some positive discussion.
quit mindlessly campaigning for trump and try thinking for yourself,

and open your eyes and SEE whats going on

More people die just from the average flu every year in this country.... shutting down small businesses was not a good idea.

Close to 99 percent who do get the C19 virus will survive. Those who are more likely to die from C19, are those who would be the most likely to die from the average flu. We all take steps to protect those people anyway.

President Trump just happens to have the misfortune of being President during this shit.....none of this is his fault. In fact he took appropriate steps to slow the spread down.

He was given advise to shut down small businesses across the country by Bill Ackman, which I don't think was necessary at all.

The "Concerns" are not panic. People, as yourself hysteriabonehead, create uneasiness, panic and fear. So do us all a favor and knock it off.

PUBLIC RECORD:
JAN 22: We have it totally under control. It's one person coming in from China.
FEB 2: We pretty much shut it down coming in from China. We're going to be fine.
FEB 24: The coronavirus is very much under control in the USA.....Stock market starting to look very good to me.
FEB 25: CDC and my administration are doing a great job of handling coronavirus
FEB 25: They have studied, they know very much. In fact they are very close to a vaccine.
FEB 28: The Democrats are politicising the coronavirus. This is their new hoax.
MAR 4: If we have thousands of people that get better just by, you know, sitting around and even going to work - some of them go to work, but they get better.
MAR 5: I NEVER said people that are feeling sick should go to work.
MAR 6: Anybody right now and yesterday, anybody that needs a test gets a test. And the tests are beautiful. They are perfect.........
MAR 6: I don't need to have the numbers double because of one ship that wasn't our fault.
MAR 8: We have a perfectly coordinated and fine tuned plan at the White House for our attack on coronavirus.
MAR 10: It will go away. Just stay calm, it will go away.
MAR 13: ~ Declares National Emergency ~


and march 6th is the most damning,
shows he cares more about statistics, blaming others and his image
than about lives. that includes yours, you blind expendable minion.
how do you not see that?!

To answer your question, yes I know of two persons related to me who have gotten ill. One seriously ill (but told to remain home) in Canada, and one family member (working overseas) who had medium-strength symptoms.
