Keep this in mind, you are much more likely to catch the regular flu. There have been 26 million, not thousands as in the covid-19 but millions, cases of the flu. What this means it that approximately 14,000 people have died from the flu this season and the season is not over. Also, that means that roughly 250,000 people have been hospitalised due to the flu virus. So when you go out, you are much more likely statistically to come in contact with the flu. In fact, in the 2017-2018 flu season 80,000 people in the US alone died due to the flu. Do you remember them shutting everything down in 2017-2018? Folks, the regressive left media hyped this covid-19 as a means to hurt the sitting President and to help a certain party to win the coming election. While one has to be careful about the SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes covid-19 illness so does one have to be careful about the regular flu, especially if one is getting on in age and are in their late 60s to 70s and on. Tanking the economy and hurting people is not a smart thing to do. Look at the panic that the media caused. When the President first came out to try and do the responsible thing and calm fears, the media acted like rabid dogs. Now we can't even buy a roll of toilet paper. Politics has really gotten dirty from one party and it is a sad thing to witness.
