  1. So did the coronavirus just dissappear like magic?

    • @theQuestion626 now if you look up the kissinger report which is a declassified document,youd see that this a depopulation program,just took the first non corrupt pres since jfk

    • Pro Sports Clips sorry for your loss.

    • @del23 aze If I made an emotional argument I’d have talked about my aunt who passed away from covid last week. I gave the last normal flu season data from the CDC bc it was CURRENT. You picked and choose incorrect data from YEARS AGO to suit your argument bc the #’s were higher. And NO ONE thinks that covid deaths should be “ZERO.” And you never mentioned that once until now. I’m not coming back to this thread, there’s like 140 comments to scroll thru to talk in circles with you. It’s not worth it. Best of luck ✌

    • @Kristina * I’m sorry about your aunt.
      You gave last season’s numbers (2018-2019), not the current ones, if you want to get technical. I gave the numbers from the season before that (2017-2018.).
      I explained that I chose that year (just over 2 season’s ago) because the number of deaths that year *were similar* to how many we’ve lost so far.
      Yet some people are expecting close to NO deaths from covid, not knowing that we lose tens of thousands every single year from the flu.
      Even NY Democrat Governor Andrew Cuomo (I posted above) compared the 2 and thought that if we had *more than double the Flu deaths* (from 0.6 %) to what was expected for Covid (1.4 %), that it still shouldn’t be enough to over-worry.
      Cuomo: “once you know the facts, once you know the reality, *it is reassuring, and we should relax,* because that’s what’s dictated by the reality of the situation. *I get the emotion,* I understand, I understand the anxiety. I’m a native-born NYer, we live with anxiety.
      *But the facts don’t back it up here.*
      Funny, I’ve seen Vietnam War deaths brought up during Covid, with *no objection about comparing 2 completely different events* … but compare Covid to another respiratory disease (flu) and those very same people will say they’re 2 different things. smh
      Have a nice day, Kristina.

    I was in Walmart today in the afternoon and I saw this middle age lady have a mask on and she took off her mask and started coughing everywhere I was shocked and no one else saw it I felt like I was in a horror movie and i live in New Mexico!

      I was in Walmart and found a million bucks on the floor. I was shocked

      States in lock down where the international hub states so oh course their numbers are higher. Meaning everyone comes into the country through NY, CA or IL. Now the virus spreads from those areas to new areas. Just because it hasn’t hit your area hard yet doesn’t mean that it isn’t coming.

    • USF Maintenance | May 6, 2020 at 10:36 AM | Reply

      Be careful that’s how the bus driver died. a lady was coughing inside the bus and 10 days later he died.

    • Michael Henkle dude repeating basic biology facts about how a virus spreads doesn’t make any difference we know the virus is real it’s a virus there’s loads of viruses the hoax is the fear of it.

      *Trump = Death Cult*

  4. Well its amazing that 2 viruses can destroy this country so fast. Atleast we can vote one away.

    • Paul Green Lmao you’re not voting Trump away stupid you got over 20+ Biden supporters to like your comment 😂

    As Americans, we’ve lost interest in COVID-19 so it must be wrapped up then, right? Confinement was boring! Let’s try delusional bliss!

    • Kyle Wilzon it matters because 2015 Obama & Fauci knew what they were paying 3.7mil for to Wuhan lab! Great to know this morning, at least they’re starting to investigate Fauci & WHO & China connection now:

      @Yugetube Did he not lie? what good is a test? are you serious? if this country was just a little competent. having test would dramatically reduce the spread, because we would know who has it, and who already had it. BTW plenty of other lies he had made. such a bad liar.

    • @Kyle Wilzon Whether you have not had it, have it or had it, you are still supposed to stay in your home in quarantine. They don’t know if you can get it more than once. and, people who have recovered are still testing positive. The tests are useless and can only track the spread. We should already be looking at this like the plague. Therefore, attempting to test people only increases the chance of infection.

    I just came back from Walmart in texas and at least 60% more than half were not wearing masks. Its time to readjust the projections.

    • Boy Ain't Right | May 6, 2020 at 5:12 PM | Reply

      @R W It tells me that there are supposedly 3.5 million ‘confirmed’ cases, and that such a number isn’t taking into account people who have it that haven’t been tested. There’s also more factors to consider for a virus than just numbers. Don’t trivialize it like that.

    • We Live In A Society bottom text yes I know that’s only confirmed could be higher but if it’s not in the billions why should we care? We don’t ever know how many actually get the flu. This is all a media scare making people think it’s a death sentence.

    • Boy Ain't Right | May 6, 2020 at 6:43 PM | Reply

      @R W “If it’s not in the billions, why should we care?” What an ugly statement.

    • We Live In A Society bottom text not an ugly statement people are going crazy over pretty much nothing.

    • We Live In A Society bottom text is it the plague are we all dying?

    • Rocket Missile wow. Big fun of talented trump . Good , keep it 🤗

    • @N Sam, isn’t it amazing people actually defend Donald Trump?!?!? I’ve noticed people who defend Trump are usually share qualities with him…and they are almost ALWAYS religious. And all the flat earthers and conspiracy theorists worship the ground he walks on.

    • Gary King yeah. even for trump ,it surprised me that he talked his stupid idea about “injection of disinfectant”. Then I realized , many supporters of trump without common sense..

  10. Lawrence is a bitter profane and angry man. He doesn’t know what he wants or what he’s doing.

  11. I have just watched Chris Cuomo CNN , Dr treating coved -19 , denied green card, helping icu patients at Columbia Uni , I am horrified , she’s volunteered and working 12 hour days for the last month , please check this out , this is wrong on so many levels !!!!!

    • I watched this and was absolutely disgusted…..this is what “Fake-President” Chumps administration has come down to…..WHO CARES ABOUT LIVES LET’S SAVE OUR POLITICAL CAREERS BY PUTTING MORE LIVES AT RISK BY RE-OPENING THE ECONOMY

    Brilliant move from the White House: shutting down the Corona task force in order to shut down the virus. Terrific job done!

      @Lana Kahl I was just on a subway in NYC, homeless all over – laying on the floor and seats – no masks and no social distancing. Urine all around the station walls. Terrific Job Cuomo
