  1. Self-centered people tend to ignore the needs of others and only do what’s best for them. So, let’s do as John F. Kennedy said  “ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.”

    1. @Cartoonishly Inept
      It is LESS likely to adversely affect young people, but the point is they are not immune. And more importantly, they are spreading it to people who ARE more vulnerable.

    2. The media has been playing this political game for months now. Only the soft and easily manipulated believe their lies. The ONLY statistic that matters are death statistics and everyone knows which states lead the way….all red states.

    3. @SouthSide Chicago Red states are going to have a disproportionately high infection and death rates because they are populated with uneducated, drooling wastes of oxygen. However, given the lifelong damage that can occur, it is not the only statistic that matters.

    4. @d z LMAO you are just a complete media sheep. The ONLY statistic that matters are deaths, period. Nobody has any idea on how many people are infected. Illinois has more deaths than Florida, Texas, and Arkansas COMBINED. The media is making this political, and you dumb liberals eat it all up as if it was the gospel. Liberal Sheep. Baaaaa.

  2. Some people who have “recovered” are still at risk of blood clots leading to strokes, brain damage, heart attacks etc. Governments who are too weak to insist on the proper use of masks in public should be removed. Those “leaders” that ignored the best scientific advice should be removed. Arrogant entitled fools playing with our health.

    1. Those arrogant fools in leadership are not just playing with Americans health. They are turning a pandemic into genocide

    1. @Mario Lopez You mean to tell me to look up something about Trump from the Washington Compost? LOL LOL HA HA

    2. @Sylvester Woodest First off! They’ve lost their Cities but then again, those cities were lost decades ago. We’ve seen plenty enough of their BS to know “we want nothing to do with them.” People will never accept their rule so they’ve already lost. No one is going to listen to these nutcases or certainly, follow their direction.

    3. @Sylvester Woodest They’ve lost because everyone hates them. They lost because they use racial hatred/divide for Political gain and people are getting woke to this.

  3. trump doesn’t know what to do so he dirties his diaper , clicks his heels together 3 times and says ” it will all just go away” the resulting negligence : turning a pandemic into genocide. The most heinous of crimes. It is right up there with treason. Oh yea, he’s guilty of that too

    1. @Hovanes Boyadzhyan Another brain-dead cretin. After about 3 months we have almost 4x the dead – ignoring the lifelong injuries this has caused for many people that survived it – then the flu causes in a bad year. Give it up, you are irretrievably stupid and pointless.

  4. Months into this pandemic and people still think it is a joke…..WAKE UP PEOPLE!!!
    Even if you survive it you could pass it to someone else who might DIE FROM THIS!!!

    1. Have you seen the reports about the Covid Parties
      where everyone pays $10 to go and the first person to test positive wins the pot???
      I haven’t made that up. Google it and see. Down in Alabama, I seem to recall.

    2. More importantly, Covid-19 tears up one’s lungs. That’s what kills people with compromised immunity systems. Just because you were sick and recovered doesn’t mean the lung damage goes away. That damage will become more and more acute as you get older.

    1. ScrewedUp FisherMan – You’ve got to be kidding. Trump will call him senile, crooked, and racist – like the ocean calling a puddle wet – then he will have nothing to say. Trump couldn’t even come up with a plan, or even empty talking points, for a second term to talk about at his rallies or to tell Sean Hannity!

    2. The new normal isn’t normal
      Did I say that? Cmon bruh you gotta come harder than that

    3. Carol Burns wanna put some money on it Carol? Venmo, Cash App or Zelle come with it cow

    4. @ScrewedUp FisherMan
      Joes got all colored votes in the bag, then there’s the millions of white folks with brains.

  5. SO SWEET. I LOVE HEARING YOUR VOICES AND THE AUTHENTICITY THAT IS SPOKEN. WE DO NEED EVERYONE TO TAKE THIS SERIOUSLY. THANK YOU DOCTOR.

  6. Thanks Ari such a great informative zoom young people need to see they aren’t invincible and the virus is not a hoax .

  7. 57,000 new infections today in the US – A record. 10,000 in Florida alone. It’s going away? I don’t think so

  8. A few words from covid19.

    COVID-19: “Perhaps I didn’t make myself clear the first time, so let me
    try again. I am immune to Trump’s lies and gaslighting. Ignorance and
    misinformation from Trump and Fox only makes me stronger. I can’t be
    defeated with phony patriotism, guns, flag waving, or denial. I can’t be
    defeated with magic, because I am real, and magic is not. I can only be
    defeated with science, facts, maturity, unselfishness, and common
    sense. I am nothing like the flu, but the flu is a fan of mine, and it
    wants to be like me when it grows up. Trying to ignore me won’t save
    you. I can’t be defeated with thoughts and prayers, so going to places
    of worship won’t save you. You may not be interested in me, but I am
    obsessed with you. Currently there is no vaccine for me, and that’s the
    problem. I recognize no one’s authority. Selfish ignorant people like
    Trump and his cult are the wind beneath my wings, they give me life. I
    may have lost some strength in other countries, but thanks to Trump,
    America is making me great again.”

  9. We’re all tired of staying in the house , but the real question is are we tired of living… the death toll is still climbing.

  10. Finally the u.s became no1 in the world of most people died because incompetence handling of a pandemic!
    So disgusting!

    1. Yup, this pandemic is reordering the nations and has proven that the US is too stupid and incompetent to lead
