The Coronavirus Crisis Is Getting Serious
Orange Foolius called it a 'hoax' and a 'foreign virus' that would die out soon as FOX Noise and conservative commentators tried to put their propaganda spin on it. But viruses are impervious to political spin and don't care what party you support.
We have entire nations like Italy on lockdown as they struggle to get a handle on an outbreak that has killed more than 1000 people there with over 13,000 cases reported..
In the US, 46 states and the District of Columbia have confirmed cases, with so far 40 deaths.
I also found it deliciously ironic that several peeps who attended CPAC, the huge conservative political convention held in the Washington DC area, have tested positive for COVID-19.
That list of CPAC attendees who got sick includes several Republican legislators.
We may even be sliding toward another Great Depression because of his gross incompetence
The Disney parks in Florida, California and Paris are now closed, and Princess Cruise Lines have shut down all voyages for at least the next two months.
The UIL boys state championship that started yesterday today in San Antonio's Alamodome has been suspended indefinitely.
It will be interesting to see if Pride events that are scheduled for June will also be canceled or postponed.
Because Orange Foolius has lied since Day One of his mispresidency, he has zero credibility when he does open his mouth. Truth and facts are your greatest allies when it comes to fighting the spread of a pandemic, and those are both nonexistent in the Trump White House.
And where are the 'millions' of COVID-19 tests the Trump misadminstration promised? Seems like as usual the peeps with money can get them, but the general public has been slow to receive them.
Yes, this COVID-19 crisis is getting serious. So what can you do to help slow down the spread of it?
Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for starters along with frequently touched surfaces in your home like light switches, counter tops and sinks.
All the closings and postponements are part of a social distancing strategy in the hopes of slowing down or stopping the spread of COVID-19 and by extension, save lives.
It's also to buy more time until a vaccine or a combination of drugs that work on it can be found.
Will the social distancing work? Let's hope and pray it does.
