If you don't know that by now, heck - if you didn't know that a month ago - you are way beyond help.
I guess you didnt read post 37.
But you aren’t being rationale. You don’t even know basic information about what has been occurring for months now - I mean, even now, comparing this to the seasonal flu? That’s ridiculous. You are just spouting off talking points that have nothing to do with reality. You are operating out of the Left’s playbook - you go with what you feel you want to be true and therefore it is, without reality having any bearing whatsoever on what you are saying.
All the scare stories are finally unraveling. Neither the infectiousness nor the mortality are proving ANYWHERE near the doom and gloom scenarios of the scaremongers. The mass graves and huge crematoria are all bullshit.
Welding doors shut in China is crap too. Are you telling me that they build all the houses out of steel in China?
You guys have about two or three weeks left to play Chicken Little. Enjoy the remains time in your bunkers.
Im simply trying to pin you down on which false claim youre running with.
Did you see they backtracked on the cause of death of the first coronavirus death of a patient under 18 in So Cal after ONE day? ONE DAY!!!
Whos not being rational?
Is coronavirus less fatal than early predictions suggested?
Yes, its a strawman because like other rational people here, Ive never called for doing nothing. Whats usually done during flu season? Advise caution, promote hand washing and discourage going out when sick or just recovered, protect the weak and elderly. Add in voluntary work from home, shut down travel to and from China, close airports where outbreaks occur, close senior centers and rest homes to visitors, etc. Not shut the whole economy down cold!
I asked for your plan from early on. When decisions had to be made. Can you link to where you first posted the above info before today?
Weve been locked down for, what a week or so? Was I supposed to be psychic two months ago and predict that our leaders were going to go off the deep end?
Who knew what was true at first. The news from China seemed pretty grim but I was skeptical. I remember the dud that was swine flu in 1976 and heterosexual AIDS again around 1990. I didnt post anything about what measures I thought were prudent until very recently because like most I feared the worst was true. Thats what the media and the experts said, right? Now that were shut down and its clear we got scammed I can recognize the insanity of it all.
I seriously doubt he is telling the truth. I’m betting he is taking lessons from Xi Jinping. Claim victory every chance you get.
So whats your point?
By the way, can you tell me how many Americans died of season flu in 1957/58?
UK has enough intensive care units to handle coronavirus
Uh oh, another scaremonger talking point crumbling. CovidClowns hardest hit!
H2n2 killed about 1 to 2 million world wide in 1957. I think about 70k in the US.
And how many business were forcibly shut down by government mandate?
Ah I would suspect zero. We were not a bunch of wimps back then.
That pandemic began the month I was born. I lived despite the long odds!
Whether it was orchestrated panic or real there is no denying it was/is panic and I pray an overreaction in which case we can look back and see how we can do better if there is a next time.
