I suppose we should just let nature take its course . . .
There was nothing 'sarcastic' about what the president said.
Which makes me wonder why he insisted he was being sarcastic.
There is some hope now with a drug called remdesivir.
And I think a private company is in charge of that.
But the FDA need to do their trials.
People can always find something as a point of comparison as if that automatically adds weight to what they are implying.
All the times I've seen people insist that because x amount die from heart disease or road accidents, that means this virus should not be taken seriously.
I absolutely agree.
If people are so stupid that they genuinely believe drinking bleach is a cure, then that's natural selection.
Of course - the Hong Kong Flu - I'd forgotten about that one. More than 100,000 Americans died from that. I wonder Y CNN/MSNBC haven't mentioned that. It doesn't fit their respective agendas I'm guessing.
OPEN UP AMERICA!
The president was caught 'red-handed' and blurted out 'sarcastic' without knowing what the word meant. A verbal mis-step. Nothing to write home about actually. Many of our presidents have made similar gaffes...both George H.W. and G.W. Bush R standouts IMO. Eisenhower also to a lesser degree. FDR and REAGAN and even OBAMA were good communicators.
Actually it's true that coronavirus like all its predecessors SHOULDN'T B taken SO seriously as to cripple Life as we know it. Viruses historically run their course. I have not yet found evidence that ANY nation in the entire world has ever 'shut down' until now. Is that perhaps a sign that the world today is suffering from Communication Overload? The Ancients continued fighting their wars. The Traders continued traveling - both spreading the viruses of the day. Many died. Most lived. Reality.
