The News of the coronavirus is causing unnecessary panic and is being used as a false alarm by the media and democrats and Deep State to bring down Trump. This will eventually pass as quickly as it arrived as all media fads do.
Conservative talk show host, and recent Medal of Freedom winner, Rush Limbaugh says he knows the truth about what is behind the coronavirus outbreak. On a recent broadcast, Rush said that the coronavirus is nothing more than a “common cold” blown out of proportion by the media to take down President Donald Trump.
“It looks like the coronavirus is being weaponized as yet another element to bring down Donald Trump,” Rush said. “I want to tell you the truth about the coronavirus…. the coronavirus is the common cold, folks,” he added.
Rush then went on to say, “The drive-by media hype of this thing as a pandemic, as the Andromeda strain, as, ‘Oh, my God. If you get it, you’re dead…’ I think the survival rate is 98%,” he said. “Ninety-eight percent of people who get the coronavirus survive. It’s a respiratory system virus.”
Continuing, he added, “It probably is a ChiCom laboratory experiment that is in the process of being weaponized.”
Limbaugh then went on to claim that “all superpower nations weaponize bioweapons,” and the Russians “have weaponized fentanyl,” which is “also not what it is represented to be.”
“I’m not trying to get you to let your guard down. Nobody wants to get any of this stuff. I mean, you never… I hate getting the common cold. You don’t want to get the flu. It’s miserable,” Limbaugh declared. “But we’re not talking about something here that’s gonna wipe out your town or your city if it finds its way there.” He concluded his diatribe about the virus with a deliberate jab at democratic-socialist Bernie Sanders.
“It came from a country that Bernie Sanders wants to turn the United States into a mirror image of: Communist China. That’s where it came from. It didn’t come from an American lab. It didn’t escape from an American research lab. It hasn’t been spread by Americans,” Limbaugh concluded. “It starts out in a communist country. Its tentacles spread all across the world in numbers that are not big and not huge, but they’re being reported as just the opposite.
Most of the deaths are in China and around the Wuhan province which houses two bioweapons labs. It is theorized the virus got out by accident from one of the animals it was being tested on possibly bats. Bats are considered a delicacy in China.
More than 1,300 people, almost all in China, have now died from COVID-19 — the newly minted name for the coronavirus disease first identified in Wuhan, China, that has infected more than 55,000 people.
Yet according to the World Health Organization, the disease is relatively mild in about 80% of cases, based on preliminary data from China.
The first symptoms of COVID-19 are pretty common with respiratory illnesses — fever, a dry cough and shortness of breath, says Dr. Carlos del Rio, a professor of medicine and global health at Emory University who has consulted with colleagues treating coronavirus patients in China and Germany. “Some people also get a headache, sore throat,” he says. Fatigue has also been reported — and less commonly, diarrhea. It may feel as if you have a cold. Or you may feel that flu-like feeling of being hit by a train.
Doctors say these patients with milder symptoms should check in with their physician to make sure their symptoms don’t progress to something more serious, but they don’t require major medical intervention.
In fact, many infectious disease experts have been making comparisons between this new coronavirus and the flu and common cold, because it appears to be highly transmissible. “Of course, you have outliers — people who are young and otherwise previously healthy who are dying,” Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, recently told NPR’s 1A show. “But if you look at the vast majority of the people who have a serious disease and who will ultimately die, they are in that group that are either elderly and/or have underlying conditions.”
“What this is acting like — it’s spreading much more rapidly than SARS [severe acute respiratory syndrome], the other coronavirus, but the fatality rate is much less,” Fauci told 1A. “It’s acting much more like a really bad influenza.”
What experts fear is that, like the flu, COVID-19 will keep coming back year after year. In fact, many infectious disease experts have been making comparisons between this new coronavirus and the flu and common cold, because it appears to be highly transmissible.
Now with this media caused panic stocks are starting to fall and there is talk of a recession on the way. Maybe Bill Mahr will get his wish for a recession, after all, to get back at his hatred for Trump.
Meanwhile, at a White House news conference, Trump sought to minimize fears as he insisted the U.S. is “very, very ready” for whatever the COVID-19 outbreak brings. Under fire about the government’s response, he put Vice President Mike Pence in charge of coordinating the efforts.
“This will end,” Trump said of the outbreak. “You don’t want to see panic because there’s no reason to be panicked.”
But standing next to him, the very health officials Trump praised for fighting the new coronavirus stressed that schools, businesses and individuals need to get ready. “We do expect more cases,” said Dr. Anne Schuchat of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
More than 81,000 cases of COVID-19, an illness characterized by fever and coughing and in serious cases shortness of breath or pneumonia, have occurred since the new virus emerged in China.
The newest case from California brings the total number infected in the U.S. to 60, most of them evacuated from outbreak zones.
Trump credited border restrictions that have blocked people coming into the U.S. from China for keeping infections low. But now countries around the world — from South Korea and Japan to Italy and Iran — are experiencing growing numbers of cases. Asked if it was time to either lift the China restrictions or take steps for travelers from elsewhere, he said: “At the right time we may do that. Right now it’s not the time.”
Trump mentioned that since 2016 there have been 64,000 deaths from the common flu and nobody has panicked about that and this virus is far fewer.
Remember China is a third world country as far as healthcare goes and we will soon be too if we elect socialized medicine and the members that want it. I am sure people are not well-fed, healthy foods, etc. If taken sick they are not given a good support system as needed that we have. Like in an intensive care system.. I am not panicking over the virus as much as the socialized system being promoted.
Every new strain of whatever virus/flu that appears on the scene is treated like it’s the 2nd coming of the black plague. San Francisco has declared “a state of emergency” over the coronavirus. Even though there are NO CASES of it in San Francisco with its’ crapped-on streets.
People need to wake up to facts. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the flu (also caused by a virus) causes up to 5 million cases of severe illness globally and kills up to 650,000 people annually. Jan 27, 2020. With 8,000-plus deaths in the U.S. alone, flu is far more deadly than Coronavirus and we don’t seem to panic each year about flu. The panic shows just how ignorant people really are.
