Current headline news would have everyone believe that COVID-19 will decimate the population of planet earth. At this point in time, however, raw data does not support this claim, and data has come under close scrutiny since evidence has become public concerning the classification of deaths being due to COVID-19 without proper testing. The COVID-19 virus has been stated as the cause of death in some cases. Contrary to the obvious such as heart attacks, COPD, etc.
Many news outlets are criticizing the opening of business, with precautions. These same outlets cried foul when the stay at home orders were directed at citizens. Hypocrisy? Yes!
There is no doubt that COVID-19 rivals the severity of the flu, however, current reports cannot be factually compared since the flu is not a reportable infection in some states. What we know for sure is that COVID-19 does not compare to the flu in the number of cases or deaths at this time. Most of the COVID-19 numbers are projected stats. Therefore, why the panic?
Why The Panic?
Frankly, the news media and many politicians conspired to create this atmosphere in order to increase the public’s dependency upon government agencies for rescue. The end result was counterproductive since it showed all the flaws in the government’s ability to meet all of these needs. With our current administration played catchup extremely well considering that previous pandemics were virtually ignored. And China, the source of the virus, withheld information with the aid of the WHO.
This is a perfect example of playing politics with the health of the populace. Attaching other funding measures to a bill authorizing funds for the COVID-19 emergency is one such instance. Such bills should be stand-alone proposals ensuring that no obstruction can occur.
Speaking as a pharmacist with forty-two years of experience, there is no doubt in my mind that the entire COVID-19 panic is manufactured. The sole intent of destroying a presidency because impeachment did not work.
Disagree if you will, but it is a hard cold fact easily seen in the records being revealed as a result of the DOJ’s investigations.Join Amazon Prime – Watch Thousands of Movies & TV Shows Anytime – Start Free Trial Now
