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. 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, 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

Must See – MSNBC Can Not Even Do Math – Forget About Actually Reporting The News (video, left), Tucker Carlson, Fox News

CS Commentary: For the math-challenged among us, $1 million times 327 (people) equals $327 million, less than the $500 million that Bloomberg spent. To give $1 million to every person in the US would be $1 million times 327 million (people), or 327 million million ($327 trillion), a much larger number. Yet, both the host and the commentator agree that this is an ‘incredible’ way of picturing the waste of Bloomberg’s campaign.
