The amount of conflicting information on this virus is significant. One thing is for sure, and it is one thing that I do not understand:
Each and every year, more people die from the common flu than have died or will die from this COVID-19 virus. Now, one death is one death too many. But by the same token, when flu season rolls around, there is no panic. There are no business shut-downs, there are no lay-offs. The country (United States) doesn’t come to a standstill, etc. So far, 9154 people have died in the United States from COVID-19. Now, compare those numbers to the following statistics for the influenza (flu) season in 2018-2019:
CDC estimates that the burden of illness during the 2018–2019 season included an estimated 35.5 million people getting sick with influenza, 16.5 million people going to a health care provider for their illness, 490,600 hospitalizations, and 34,200 deaths from influenza.
The numbers in the paragraph above are for the United States, not global. With all due respect to those infected with COVID-19 and certainly to those who have succumbed to the virus, sorry folks, things just don’t add up. TGO

What you have below is the commentary of a viewer following Bill O’reilley’s video, which I just posted a few minutes ago.
Interesting… I had always felt that this coronavirus (COVID-19) was overblown. I had read all of the statistics of the “common flu”, which has killed an average of 32,000 people in the United States during the last ten years; since 2010. I really couldn’t understand how that many deaths could go basically unnoticed, as life went on, business as usual, with almost no mention of it in the news media. Yet now it seems as if the world is coming to an end.
Anyway, just food for thought. To be perfectly honest, I don’t know what to believe anymore. Just thought that the commentary below offered an interesting perspective on things. TGO
“The death toll is being padded notice how the media reports death they died of complications and tested positive for Coronavirus. What they don’t say is the person was 87 years old had a bad heart and cancer. If someone gets killed in a car wreck the media and the democrats are going to say it was from complications of this virus. If the yearly flu is Mike Tyson then this virus is Peewee Herman and we are all being played.. It is designed to collapse the economy and hurt Trump’s reelection and if Trump loses you will never hear about this virus again. Never think the democrats the media and the deep state wouldn’t work with China to get Trump out of office. Trump is a victim too since he has to treat this like the real thing but look who his advisers are Clinton, Bush and Obama hold overs.”
A summary of some of the “happenings” surrounding this pandemic over the past several days… TGO
This video is several days old but still relevant. Please listen to Jesse Watter’s commentary. It really puts things in perspective and debunks a great deal of what the talking heads in the liberal media have been saying as of late. TGO
