What Injustice Looks Like

Coronavirus Pandemic Is A Real Fear (video, left0, Tucker Carlson, Fox News

CS Commentary: Monday night Tucker featured this commentary then entertained an author who insisted that the Chinese made the coronavirus in their only level 4 biological lab, which is in Huwan. Then, contradictorily, Tucker featured a segment on how the Chinese have banned the eating of wild animals nation-wide without noting the contradiction – if the Chinese created the virus in a lab, why are they so concerned with banning eating of wild animals? We like Tucker, but the media overall has engaged in Coronavirus panic without any real context. See our Daily Update page for more.

CS Coronavirus Update (click this link for complete Daily Update): Bottom Line We do not believe this will be a global pandemic that sweeps the world and kills millions of people, however the World Heath Organization (WHO, a largely corrupt organization) is saying that they are in ‘a phase of preparedness for a potential pandemic’. Note that the common cold is a pandemic; the flu virus is also a pandemic. Covid-19 is a coronavirus, like SARS in 2003 and MERS in 2015. H1N1, an influenza virus, did sweep the globe in 2009 and killed as many as 575,000. By comparison the Spanish Influenza of 1918 killed 50 million globally. Covid-19 has now spread to 50 nations. The R naut, the rate of spread, is 2-3. The potentially huge problem with Covid-19 is that asymptomatic people may spread the virus, and screening/testing in the US – and throughout the world – has not been standardized or optimized.

As of today, 2/29/20, the US Center For Disease Control (CDC) has recently warned Americans to expect that the spread of the virus in the US will increase.  Dr. Anne Schuchat, the CDC’s principal deputy director declared…For the complete Daily Update click this link
