33. Another deplorable doesn't understand doubling or vaccines: (they will break quarantines)


We are like at early November for a flu season except NO vaccines. When infections with no resident immunities ("novel" viruses) spread they can double every second or third day. 12 doublings (maybe 24 or 36 days) would yield 2^12 = 4000 times as many deaths = about 90,000 deaths.

Many conservative sites, and conservatives on sites, are minimizing the virus.

This entire thing is massive FEAR MONGERING by the liberal media to try to make President Trump look bad in a Presidential election year. It won’t work.

In the USA this year ...
34 to 49 million people have had flu symptoms.
350,000 to 620,000 flu hospitalizations
64,000 people died of the flu.

So far, 22 people have died of the Coronavirus in the USA.
What is more important?
64,000 deaths from the flu or 22 deaths from the Coronavirus?
