Coronavirus: Pastor who decried 'hysteria' dies after attending Mardi Gras

Source: BBC News

Pastor Landon Spradlin wasn't worried about coronavirus when he went to New Orleans to preach during Mardi Gras. A month later he was dead.
Pastor Spradlin was one of those who became ill, but tested negative for Covid-19. Even as he was sick, he posted on social media about "hysteria" surrounding the virus.

On the 13th of March Pastor Spradlin shared on Facebook a misleading post comparing swine flu and coronavirus deaths.

It suggested that Barack Obama and Donald Trump respectively had been treated very differently by the media and that it was a politically motivated ploy to harm President Trump.

F'ing stupid Nunes...he deserves what he gets

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) on Sunday encouraged people to “go to your local pub” if you’re healthy, despite U.S. health experts recommending Americans limit their social interactions as the coronavirus continues to spread across the country.

Nunes was asked during an appearance on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures with Maria Bartiromo” what he thinks of the federal government’s response to COVID-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus first documented in China.

“Well, most importantly I think what the American people have to understand is we need to stop panicking here,” Nunes said. “There’s no shortage of food in this country. People don’t need to go to the store and fight over bottled water or toilet paper.”

He continued:

There’s a lot of concerns with the economy here because people are scared to go out. One of the things you can do, if you’re healthy, you and your family, it’s a great time to just go out, go to a local restaurant ― likely you can get in easily.

Let’s not hurt the working people in this country that are relying on wages and tips to keep their small business going. Just don’t run to the grocery store and buy $4,000 of food. Go to your local pub.

Bartiromo nodded her head in agreement. “Right,” she said.
