The widespread panic that is happening over the Coronavirus has gotten to a point of absolute madness.
We must be cautious and careful and very aware of our surroundings and also respect the power of viral diseases like this – but the hysteria and sensationalism that’s going on with this particular virus are stunning and it’s dangerous too.
Keep in mind, back in 2009 22 million Americans caught the Swine Flu. Over 17 thousand Americans sadly died – but you don’t remember experiencing this level of “mass frenzy” as you do with the Coronavirus.
One reason is that it’s being politicized by the left and their friends in the media are hyping it up, also media are using sensational headlines (that are very much fake news) to get clicks and ratings.
Meanwhile, the NBA just ended their entire season, causing many hourly workers to go jobless after one player tested “preliminary positive” for Coronavirus.
During last night’s game, players abruptly left the court mid-game as fans looked on.
You can watch the video below:

Again, we must be cautious, wash our hands, use hand sanitizer, don’t touch your face or cough in someone’s space etc. Common sense type stuff that we should all practice every flu season and beyond.
But fistfights over toilet paper, people literally thinking this is the “black plague,” and politicizing of this virus has gone too far and is causing much more damage than Coronavirus ever could.
Stay smart and safe, everyone.
