People have started “panic shopping” in my city over the Corona-Flu, despite zero confirmed cases and zero deaths within a two-hour drive. Is the same thing happening where you live?
It’s a really strange form of panic shopping, however. There are no shortages or lines at the regular grocery stores where I shop – but the Costco looks like Black Friday offering $10 PlayStations.
I’ve concluded that this Corona-Flu thing is impossible to contain, and that the media-driven panic over what amounts to this year’s flu season is simply a shallow attempt to dethrone the greatest president in American history.
Here’s an example of why this latest barnyard flu from China is impossible to contain:
A doctor in his 70s from Australia just took his annual ski trip. He flew from Toorak into Los Angeles and after a layover in California, flew to Denver, Colorado. From there, he rented a car and drove to Vail, where he spent 12 days skiing. Then he drove back to Denver, flew to San Francisco for another layover, before flying back to Australia.
Once he was home, the unidentified doctor went straight back to work. He treated 70 patients, including a house call to a nursing home where he treated two extremely elderly people.
Then he was diagnosed with the Corona-Flu, as if anyone didn’t see that punchline coming.
The liberal media points to this as an example of why “travel bans don’t work.” Um… no, this is proof that travel bans do work, but we simply don’t have the political will to impose an actual travel ban.
The utter selfishness of modern people is also coming to light as a reason why we can’t contain the Corona-Flu. That Australian doctor could have looked at the situation around the entire world and skipped his annual ski trip. Instead, he decided that he was too important to make any personal sacrifices and by golly, he deserved to take his trip. As a result, he infected who knows how many passengers on his lengthy flights to and from Australia, at the airports in LA and San Francisco and Denver, and at a ski resort in Vail.
Here’s more proof that we don’t have the political will to stop the spread of the Corona-Flu: How many elementary schools in America are currently closed to prevent the spread of the bug?
As of this writing, the number is zero. Yet all the evidence we have so far is that children are catching the Corona-Flu (but not dying from it or showing extreme symptoms from it) and spreading it like wildfire in places where the bug is running rampant.
It’s pretty routine for schools to close for things like one-third of an inch of snow on the ground, teacher strikes, or basically any other type of minor nuisance. But we can’t close schools for a virus that most people are worried about? Really?
One professor at Stanford University has tested positive for the Corona-Flu, so the school has cancelled all in-person classes. Students are simply taking their classes via online format from their dorm rooms in the meantime. That seems really smart.
But don’t tell me that you’re worried about the Corona-Flu if you’re still sticking your kids in the petri dish of your local elementary school. (I say this, of course, as one of those uppity homeschool parents.)
I really wish that everyone panicking over this Corona-Flu would take a deep breath. Wash your hands and remain calm, everyone. How many people have you known this winter who have already had some sort of nasty virus? Everyone in my family of six had some sort of flu in January. We all recovered. I know people all across the country who have had flu this year and everyone remarked that it seemed a little worse than usual. Was that Corona-Flu? Maybe, but we’ll never know.
In the meantime, the mass deaths that the mainstream media is praying for don’t seem to be materializing. Only the elderly and frail are passing away from this bug.
By way of comparison, regular flu has already killed 20,000-plus Americans this season. MSNBC’s Nicole Wallace was actually smiling the other day as she and a guest talked about how the Corona-Flu was going to be “Trump’s Hurricane Katrina.”
Keep dreaming, fake news losers. If they think they’re going to scare me into not voting for Trump’s reelection next November, just wait until they see my homemade Hazmat suit made from Hefty bags and duct tape!
