    Best case scenario over shipment and supply of vitamin C, and correct knowledge of how to treat germs and bacteria. Being more aware and conscious of your health. Seems like a perfect time to reiterate and educate on the benefit of being Tobacco free; as well as other harmful products that may hinder the respiratory system. “Educate and Implement proper steps on how to stay healthy”, and Lead by _ showing through the media calmness and intelligence as your _ councilman and physicians search for the remedies; instead of _ overdramatizing “causes” _ focus on remedies and solutions. Not just “social separation or isolation.”

    The first hotspot was in China Wuhan, not America, the first case i remember hearing about was a woman dying in a ER waiting to be seen unable to breathe back in February on the east coast. Close to home was a teacher few towns over west coast, then it was everywhere. Now we are all partly lockdown down our country at stop while fat cats fight over money. 😞

    The CDC must be included in managing all infectious disease in the United States. They are valuable experts in the field. To do otherwise, makes no sense.

  11. We need this man for president! He’s a hero!!!

  12. We need this man for president! He’s a hero!!!

  13. It’s totally insane to me that most people I see in my neighborhood & outside are not taking this seriously. This is exactly why it’s getting worse instead of better. STAY HOME PEOPLE

  14. Testing now should only be required for healthcare workers & those who work with people. You just have to assume everyone has it. Honestly this will not go away because every city is full of idiots out there ignoring warnings. We are seeing people come to the hospital sicker then I have ever seen in my 30 yr career as a nurse. I pray this ends soon

  15. Need Russian help too ?

  16. 1). Gabexate Mesylate
    2). Aprotonin (Trasylol, BPTI).

    Protease inhibitors that could work on serine protease TMPRSS2211 when the host cell produces this after the S protein priming during the invasion process of SARS-COV-2 affecting the ACE2 receptor.

    Funny how he never mentions corporate greed as a problem here. Funny how he also doesn’t mention the fact that %80 of the country actually has to go out an go to work. Millions of people are filling for unemployment and more are still being laid off at a time when rent hasn’t been suspended. That’s obviously gonna spread this further.
