The media has riled Americans into a frenzied panic over COVID-19.
Concerned, corrupt, and ignorant politicians alike have used fear of COVID-19 to institute neurotic social distancing policies. Tens of millions of Americans are now prohibited from working, from seeing loved ones, from worshippingthe nations greatest churches were empty this Easter.
Americas government has suspended the freedoms enshrined in the Constitution and destroyed the economy. And for what?
Nothing. New data reveals that COVID-19 is not the pandemic we were promised.
The media compares COVID-19 to the Spanish Flu, which killed 50 million people in the wake of World War I. They warn that one-in-twenty people who are infected could diemillions of lives are at risk.
This is a pack of lies.
Iceland was the first Western nation to conduct mass testing for COVID-19. Their tests revealed not only that the infected population was much larger than initially suspected, but that the majority of infected people were asymptomatic. In other words, most did not even know they were sick. A recent study from Germany reached a similar conclusion, and estimated that the illness mortality rate is 0.4 percentapparently COVID-19 really is akin to a bad case of the flu.
Italy is also backtracking on its initial figures. The Minister of Health recently stated that only 12 percent of the alleged COVID-19 deaths have shown a direct causality from coronavirus. More recently, research has shown that the average age of these casualties was 79.5 and 99 percent had pre-existing conditions.

Quarantine is keeping the sick isolated, not keeping everyone isolated.
Seems to be the whole point here. The Dimocrats would rather destroy America rather than see her survive and continue to be great as she has always been up until this decade and see Trump drummed from office at the cost of our great Republic.
Yes, and I for one am sick and tired of this ridiculous quarantine. As is everyone else on the planet.
Exactly...This was an illegal confinement of well Americans.
It may present a danger to the older and infirm. Here and there it may kill a healthy younger person.
You don’t destroy a country’s economy over that.
If obama was in office it would be “elderly and those with the following conditions should self quarantine for a while”
And it might not even make the first page of an online news sight
We should all look at each other with grave and disparate suspicion. After all, even a healthy person might be infected.
I know, and as the election comes ever-closer, the Democrats are beginning to lose it, calling President Trump “morbidly obese,” and some other instances of oddities that I can’t remember now.
Quarantining and masking people who aren’t sick is a very bad and unhealthy idea. I refuse both.
Exactly. I remember H1N1 swine flu in 2009. No one, including St Barry Obama, suggested shutting down a darned thing. 60 million Americans, including me, caught the thing. And tens of thousands probably died from it. If they had counted H1N1 deaths the way they’re counting Covid19 deaths, probably several hundred thousand deaths would have been attributed to swine flu. Nothing was shuttered. It was business as usual.
“And tens of thousands probably died from it.”
The figure I saw was 100,000.
This is correct , and history will show the tremendous difference between Barrys response and the overwhelming change in everything that Trump elicited by mobilizing the federal government and getting out the word about social distancing and cleaning hands and things like that
The great thing is that we did defeat this thing , more than a month ago , now and America will be back to normal very soon!
In order for the Democrats to fight Trump on this theyre either going to have to lie and say that he didnt do enough or didnt do enough early enough or simply try to blame him for the deaths that occurred which is completely silly because obviously he did everything in his power and more to prevent unnecessary death
In this period of time the Democrats are understandably having to take the side of the virus itself and roof for death ! and try to give people harum-scarum stories that they carry in fear and stay inside its really quite hilarious to watch
