The people that are stating how horribly we are handling this, will soon start conspiracies that the virus was created so that we would be forced to take the vaccine, then they won't take the vaccine.

I say this as a medical professional.
Coronavirus if you believe the offical numbers is 20x more lethal then the flu and far more contiguousness

You don't lock down 750 million people and risk your entire economy in the process over a bug with the same mortality rate as the common flu.

These past moves by the Trump administration certainly won't help the coronavirus outbreak in the US.

China has a population of over 1.4 billion people. There are 83k cases of Corona virus confirmed world wide. I think the media is instigating hysteria over this and causing the social meltdown that we are seeing. There has been over 30,000 deaths due to the Flu this season.

The best way to prevent contracting any of these viruses is to 1) stay away from people who are sick, and 2) wash your hands frequently and keep your filthy fingers away from your face and mouth. I tell this to my 7yr old twins that every day.

If there really is a true threat that this could get worse, especially in countries/regions with confirmed cases and low potential cases, I absolutely would cancel any event with large gatherings. Its just not worth it.

Umm..please get off your braindead political horse. The House brought up no bills to increase funding for these agencies except to decrease funding for a wall which would have stopped illegal chinese.

I used to think you were fairly intelligent. I understand TDS affects mental acumen though.

People havinf an IQ above 80 can see that the Dems are using every trick in the book to make up their loses due to their fckups.

This may be as bad as the anti-VAX tweets he put out in 2014:

Trump tweet:
So, the Coronavirus, which started in China and spread to various countries throughout the world, but very slowly in the U.S. because President Trump closed our border, and ended flights, VERY EARLY, is now being blamed, by the Do Nothing Democrats, to be the fault of "Trump".

Actually read the articles before making a brain dead usual angry response.

The Trump administration made these cuts and moves that are already hampering the effort to deal with this. The vast majority of it has nothing to do with the House or current funding bills etc.

While a bit funny, I don't care about that. The constant insults etc while he doesn't even read the links and then respond to the content of the post gets old though/is the real problem.
