The Press Needs to STOP Ginning Up Coronavirus *****

Recommended Posts

It's out of control.  Instilling fear for the sake of it.  This hype is completely over-the-top.  I predict a third of the world IS NOT going to die from this!  LOL.  Is this for clicks/ratings, etc.?  It's like watching the Weather Channel during hurricane season.  Calm down people - it's going to be okay.  As Aaron Rodgers once said: RELAX.  It's ridiculous.

My kid's mother, whom I detest, has a friend in Italy that left her a chilling voice mail overnight.

This is what she sent me

I just had to listen to my dear friend cry telling me how her country is in absolute lock down, How she isn't allowed to go see her family because they live in a different town and it is against the law to do so. How she is not legally allowed to even be within so many YARDS of another human being.
Her grandfather is sick and if he were to die they DO NOT perform funerals anymore because of risk of the virus.
A place that is normally PACKED with people from all over the world is a ghost town.
The hospitals in Italy have all but collapsed and no one can go to them, they are FULL.
The country is experiencing our version of Marshal Law and IF this virus doesn't "go away" as she put it by April 3rd (which is when their lock down would end if things change) she might not only not be able to pay her rent, but whats worse is the Dr's will start deciding who to let live and who to die because they have no means of saving the elderly.

 

Those other viruses and illnesses did not affect practically the entire world in this short of time. Italy has had about 800 people die. Other countries are taking this seriously.

So society collapses over a new strain of coronavirus?  Really?  I don't think so.  A lot of misinformation out there and overreaction going on.  People ARE recovering quickly from this thing.  The press and fear mongers are out of control.  As I said before - this is RIDICULOUS.

It's China's way to conquer the world! Cripple the US economy, eliminate a few hundred million people around the globe, ally with Russia, conquer country by country, get rid of all that heartburning Italian cuisine, force everyone to abandon silverware for bamboo, force westerners to eat Schezuan Pussycat.... must I continue?

President Donald Trump responded to the worsening outbreak of the novel coronavirus by taking to Twitter Tuesday morning to lash out at the Federal Reserve, criticize former President Obama, and call for border walls.

Trump’s tweets come a day after he showed up at a White House coronavirus task force press conference and touted the administration’s response to the US outbreak, which has infected more than 750 people and killed at least 27, singling out closing the borders to travelers from affected areas. He also previewed the White House’s proposed stimulus response to the crisis, which could include a payroll tax cut, stimulus for the airline and cruise industries, and paid sick leave.

But early Tuesday, he pivoted to deflecting blame and retweeting coronavirus tweets from conservative activist Charlie Kirk. Kirk, who is the founder and president of the conservative student group Turning Point USA, tweeted that the US needs a wall on its southern border to protect the country from coronavirus, which the president retweeted, saying “Going up fast. We need the Wall more than ever!”

But there’s no evidence at this point that anyone in the US has been infected with coronavirus from someone crossing the border from Mexico, and the administration’s policies at the border could exacerbate the outbreak, particularly for migrants. Kirk’s tweet called the coronavirus the “China virus,” a racist language convention, along with “Wuhan virus,” a term recently adopted by many prominent conservatives.

 

 

 

Covid-19, the disease caused by the novel coronavirus, originally came to the US with Americans who had been exposed to the virus during overseas travel. Those people came back to the US via airplane or cruise ship, Vox’s Danna Takriti explained:

Covid-19 initially arrived in the US in two ways. First, infected people returned to the US from China, where the virus originated and where the vast majority of cases have been reported. Second, people came into contact with someone who had been to China or to another country with Covid-19. Since February 28, new cases of Covid-19 have been reported in the US with no link to travel, which means the disease has been spreading inside the country.

At this point, the US is experiencing community spread; people who have had no contact with individuals who have traveled overseas are getting sick. Several experts have warned that containment of the virus seems unlikely given the slow rollout of testing kits by US health officials. As the virus spreads, the US could be forced into more drastic containment strategies, like self-isolation, as is being done right now in Italy.

Nevertheless, conservative politicians have taken pains to paint the virus as a foreign threat while promoting isolationist policies, like the southern border wall.

Trump, who has been criticized for his administration’s response to the burgeoning outbreak, also sought to deflect blame Tuesday morning by retweeting another inaccurate Kirk statement — this one accusing the Obama administration of a slow response to H1N1 swine flu in 2009.

 

Between April 12, 2009, and April 10, 2010, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimated that there were 60.8 million cases of H1N1 in the US, resulting in 274,304 hospitalizations and 12,469 deaths.

Though it’s true that Obama didn’t declare a national emergency over the virus until October 2009, his administration declared a public health emergency almost immediately, on April 26, 2009. PolitiFact has rated the conservative claim that Obama didn’t do anything to prevent an H1N1 outbreak “false.”

Amid financial tremors, Trump blames the Federal Reserve

After financial markets had their worst day since 2008 on Monday, Trump sought to deflect criticism by focusing on a familiar target: the Federal Reserve and its chair, Jay Powell.

 

He followed it up with a shorter tweet, calling for the Fed to be a “leader, not a very late follower.”

The central bank has become a favorite target ofTrump’s ire; he often blames the board’s decision to slightly raise interest rates for worse-than-expected market performance. But recent trouble in the financial market is largely out of the Fed’s hands. Concerns over disruptions in consumer behavior because of coronavirus fears and an oil dispute between Russia and Saudi Arabia have combined to alarm investors. Even so, the panic was relatively short-lived: The market showed early indications of rallying Tuesday morning after Monday’s selloff.

But the Fed, which typically operates cautiously, was not meant to mitigate short-term volatility in the market, despite Trump’s protestations.

It’s notable that Trump’s instinct Tuesday was to protect his political standing, rather than reassure a spooked populace with facts and best practices for avoiding coronavirus. The president did eventually praise his coronavirus task force Tuesday morning with a tweet, though even that was overtly political.

Ah!!!  Now I get it.  All Trump's fault.  Makes sense now.  If we only had a Socialist like Bernie Sanders as our President things would be so much better.  LOL.  Too bad that ship has sailed.  Right Jungle?  Not looking good for your boy I'm afraid.

The day you realize the depth of your stupidity, I want to be there to see the look on your face. That is, IF it's even possible for you to see just how ignorant you are

Hip!   I thought you had me on ignore.  What gives???  So great to see that you're reading my posts again.  Friendly tip: You consider those who disagree with you to be stupid.  The feeling's mutual!  Surprised you haven't figured that out by now.  Have a wonderful day.

Great point.  You're right.  Don't get ahead of yourself.  A lot CAN indeed happen before November.  The best advice is to keep at it and keep the faith.  Get the word out that we ALL need to make sure and show up to vote on election day NO MATTER HOW THINGS ARE LOOKING. Get the vote out.  There are a lot of players involved in this particular election I sure as shit don't trust.  Count on there being a lot of dirty tricks coming up.  Don't fall into any of the traps they'll be setting.

LOL.  Figure of speech, my man.  Never heard the term "gin up"?  I think it's in some dictionaries.  Sorry if I offended.  I know everyone else around here speaks only the King's English.  Try not to let small things rile you.  :classic_biggrin:

I saw this posted in the shout box... It gives a good analysis of the basic spread of a virus.

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kas0tIxDvrg&fbclid=IwAR3aNQz6GhbbbCMCLOrU-WqlVi8qKFeKqJLqZnnkvZNIQyn9O2wEmUrtsrI  

Edit - A better video:

 

So reducing interactions between people should  reduce the spread, but i can believe it stops it.  Just gives us more time to develop a vaccine (12-18 months are estimates I have heard).  So I think it will reduce but will be around for a while like colds and the flu. 

One quote fromthe video above 

"if people are sufficiently worried, there’s much less to worry about, but if no one is worried, that’s when you should worry."

here is a report on whats happening in Italy

https://apple.news/AZmxZC7aZQOanjM7xkv0sFA?fbclid=IwAR3AK-SrU9SkfjrHFyxnEvx291pqCOWxS4oDmptfZqcjnrP1HHviNmoIYMw

They think that part of the reason for the problems is the multi-generational families all living in the same house.  The kids are bringing it home and the Grandparents have trouble  surviving it.  in a microcosim, that is why the virus is a real danger for nursing home and assisted living centers.

Don't recall anybody saying it was the flu.  You take precautions and do the best you can.  Should we remain indoors for months on end?  That won't work either.  Bottom line: this too shall pass.  Panic is the last thing we need.  Don't gin this up like the media.

Well those words say it all.  A bit guilty/defensive????  Fuck the media.  They're literally cheerleaders for this thing.  They see it as a means of getting rid of Trump which is ridiculous.  They ARE ginning this thing up.  To pretend otherwise is blind, stupid or dishonest.

Virus vectors can piggyback on each other; think of successive waves in a rolling tide. 

It doesn't end with this.  We'll still have to deal with:

1) Dos Equis

2)  Modelo

3)  Pacifico

4)  Victoria

5) Barrelito

Hope it doesn’t go to def-con PBR, then we’re talking extreme shits........
