Coronavirus (Covid-19) is NOT The Plague, be smart, read this

Stating the obvious — obvious to everyone but the democrat media — Covid-19 is not The Plague. It’s probably not even going to be as bad as the flu. It’s serious and we need a vaccine, but it’s not what the media wants you to believe (for political reasons). The President acted immediately with quarantines and other measures. The President is not the virus nor did he create it like the NY Times and other irresponsible publications want you to believe.

Out of about 84,000 who were afflicted with the disease, about 2700 people died from the new strain of coronavirus. The people who have to worry — the elderly, men, and those with underlying conditions.

To give Covid-19 some perspective, last flu season, from October to February, 31 million Americans caught the flu, with 210,000 to 370,000 flu sufferers hospitalized because of the virus. Another 12,000 to 30,000 died.

According to the CDC, about .13% of people who contract the flu will die. Currently, if China isn’t lying, it appears the mortality rate of COVID-19 is 3.4%.

Johns Hopkins data on the virus:

As of this day, there are:

  • 85,681 cases
  • 39,746 recoveries
  • 2,933 deaths
  • 66 cases in the United States
  • 0 deaths in the United States from the virus

Right now, Brit Hume is trying to add some sanity to the madness and is getting torched by the leftist Twitterati. The truth is not acceptable.

Coronavirus allegedly lives longer on surfaces than the flu, so keep washing your hands, and don’t touch your face or anyone else’s. Use soap. That is far more important than a mask.

The virus has little impact on the young and does the most to impact the elderly and men. In fact, the Imperial College of London suggests this really may be more like an aggressive seasonal flu. The latest information indicates that most people don’t even know they have it. That would lower the mortality rate of Covid-19, if true.

China has about 80,000 people with the disease, but in a population of one billion, that’s not very many.
