You scared of the Coronavirus? 

Were you as scared of the flu, we’re all so familiar with, a month or two ago?

Based on the numbers, if you’re going to be scared, you should be just as scared of the flu…, actually you should be much more scared of the flu!

According to Jamie Ducharme of TIME Magazine, even though we have vaccines for the flu, “In total, the CDC estimates that up to 42.9 million people got sick during the 2018-2019 flu season [November thru April, or about six months], 647,000 people were hospitalized and 61,200 died.”

And that’s only in the U.S.

Currently 2 people have died from the Coronavirus in the U.S.

Two.

The MedicineNet website reports that, “Seasonal flu kills 291,000 to 646,000 people worldwide each year, according to a new estimate.”

Wait…, what’s that again?

The MedicineNet website reports that, “Seasonal flu kills 291,000 to 646,000 people worldwide each year, according to a new estimate.”

The flu kills 291,000 to 646,000 people worldwide each year!!!

Joshua Berlinger, Jessie Yeung, Adam Renton, Mike Hayes, Rachel Bowman and Meg Wagner of CNN say the, “Coronavirus death toll tops 3,000.”

That’s in the two months of January and February of 2020.

3,000.

The good old seasonal flu we’re used to “kills 291,000 to 646,000 people worldwide each year.”

Again…, that’s 291,000 to 646,000!

And you’re all worked up about the Coronavirus?

Now why would that be?

Hmmm, let me think.

Could it be because the fake news, liberal propaganda is blowing the Coronavirus all out of proportion?

I believe the answer to that question is “yes.”

I mean…, 291,000 to 646,000 people have been dying from the flu year after year after year after year, and no one seemed to be making a big deal about it.

Am I wrong?

And now 3,000 have died from the Coronavirus and the fake news media and the disingenuous democrat leadership are all losing their minds?

Why are these 3,000 people so special, compared to the 291,000 to 646,000 people that annually from the flu now?

Denise Grady, of The New York Times, reports, “As the United States recorded its first coronavirus death Saturday…, Americans wondered how to measure this new threat against a more familiar foe: influenza.”

“President Donald Trump, a self-described ‘germaphobe,’ said Wednesday he was amazed to learn that tens of thousands of Americans died from the flu each year, contrasting that number with the 60 or so known to be infected with the coronavirus. On Friday, [President] Trump accused the news media and Democrats of exaggerating the dangers of the virus.”

Isn’t that obvious?

And getting the Coronavirus is not a “death sentence.”  In fact most people are able to recover from the virus, just like most people are able to recover from the flu.

“Both the coronavirus and influenza are most dangerous to people who are older than 65, or have chronic illnesses or a weak immune system.

“There seems to be another important difference: The flu appears far more dangerous to children, particularly very young ones, who can become severely ill. Children infected with the new coronavirus tend to have mild or no symptoms.”

“As of Feb. 22, in the current [flu] season there were at least 32 million cases of flu in the United States, 310,000 hospitalizations and 18,000 flu deaths, according to the CDC. Hospitalization rates among children and young adults this year have been unusually high.”

So again, I ask you, where is the panic and finger pointing regarding our current flu numbers?

The current flu numbers are far, far worse compared to the current Coronavirus numbers.

“Doctors can recommend only the usual remedies for [ANY] viral illness: rest, medicine to reduce pain and fever, and fluids to avoid dehydration.”

We’ve all been there, haven’t we?

These “remedies,” “…can lessen the severity of the illness and shorten its course by a day or so, and they may lower the risk of serious complications.”

Anyway…, hopefully, I’ve managed to calm you down about the Coronavirus, raise your awareness about the flu, and raise your awareness as to how the fake news media and the disingenuous democrat leadership attempt to control and manipulate “the news.”
