Coronavirus cases rise to 57 in the United States, CDC warns of pandemic

February 25, 2020

By CCT STAFF

The number of coronavirus cases in the United States has increased to 57, with most repatriated from the Diamond Princess cruise ship, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Of those cases, 40 people were repatriated from the Diamond Princess and three were infected in Wuhan. Another 14 cases were infected while traveling overseas. Only two cases are related to person to person contact in the United States, the CDC said.

The coronavirus will likely become a global pandemic, warned Anne Schuchat, principal deputy director of the Centers for Disease Control and Pervention.

“Current global circumstances suggest it’s likely this virus will cause a pandemic,” Schuchat said during a news briefing on Tuesday.

As of Tuesday afternoon, the coronavirus has infected more than 80,200 and killed at least 2,704 people worldwide.

40,000,000 in Cali alone. and the sky is falling because of 57 case in the entire USA.Consider these facts. 88,000 die from drinking each year. In 2018 770,000 died from Aids, 70,000 died from drug over doses,1.25 million from car accidents. Pandemic you say? the Only pandemic is the diarrhea running out of the medias mouths cause the impeachment is over and there nothing else more exciting to get a rise outta everyone.

What I am about to type is 100% true, accurate and cannot be contradicted:


The drive to the store to buy your mask is far more dangerous and deadly than the virus we are told to be afraid of.

If you’re really afraid to die, by all means don’t take the relatively massive risk—when compared to the virus—of driving to work or the store.


Country China


Total motor vehicle fatalities latest year (adjusted/estimated figures by WHO report) 256,180


The number of deaths from the virus won’t come anywhere close to the number of deaths from motor vehicles….even in China. For the USA it’s even more stark:


Motor vehicles:

There were 33,654 fatal motor vehicle crashes in the United States in 2018 in which 36,560 deaths occurred. This resulted in 11.2 deaths per 100,000 people and 1.13 deaths per 100 million miles traveled.


Flu:

The CDC predicts that at least 12,000 Americans will die from the flu in any given year. As many as 61,000 people died in the 2017-2018 flu season, and 45 million were infected.Feb 7, 2020


Meanwhile, the Corona virus has a long, long way to go if it’s going to be nearly as deadly as the flu in China. Like I said, driving to get your mask is more dangerous than getting the corona virus.


Search on these things I posted and you’ll find I’m 100% accurate, as always.

Yes, Doc, of course. Thank you for those facts.


But it’s soooooooo much more fun for the progressive hatemongers and the left-wing media fearmongers to fan the flames of hysteria.


Especially in a Presidential election year.

Rush Limbaugh says the virus is nothing more than the common cold hyped up to bring down Trump.


RalphKane

It’s certainly not hyped up, but a spiraling pandemic could bring down the world as we know it, no matter who is at the helm. Politics won’t matter then. Watch History Channel’s “After Armageddon” on YouTube.

Limbaugh used to declare that second-hand smoke from cigarettes wasn’t harmful and that first-hand smoking probably wouldn’t kill you for 50 years, if ever. How’d that work out for him? Maybe not the best person to rely on about these sorts of things.

Man that ship must of been like a flu incubator…

The guy in our Whit House has just decided that The Center For Disease Control should have a 16% budget cut. I find that a singularly unique response to the problem we are facing above, not to mention other ongoing issues. I could say more, but in the interest of keeping this site as civil as possible, I will leave that to your imaginations.


Rambunctious

I wish people would stop judging effectiveness with budget levels…and I will leave it there in the interest of keeping this site as civil as possible…leaner and meaner…


kettle

“keeping this site as civil” So flexing on us, going to bully us, to be uncivil about the budget or the idiot in the White House?


But back to the topic “In 2018, the Trump administration fired the government’s entire pandemic response chain of command, including the White House management infrastructure.”


Homeland Security Acting Deputy Secretary Ken Cuccinelli came under fire for asking Twitter if others had trouble accessing Johns Hopkins University’s COVID-19 coronavirus map Monday.

“Has the Johns Hopkins map of the coronavirus stopped working for other people, or just me?” Cuccinelli wrote, including a link to the map. “I just tried again, and it looks like Johns Hopkins put the information behind a membership wall of some kind. Seems like bad timing to stop helping the world with this (previously) useful resource. Here’s hoping it goes back up soon.”


That’s his source of info, looking at a map on his iphone, he’s Homeland Security Acting Deputy, WTF


But no one needs to worry a very stable genius assures us it will be over in April.

“The virus that we’re talking about having to do, a lot of people think that goes away in April, with the heat, as the heat comes in, typically that will go away in April,” Mr. Trump said


RalphKane

…sounds to me like you’re not prepared to survive a pandemic. Why not? Why does any action on the part of government (or lack thereof) matter to your well-being?


kettle

I did not say anything about my preparedness. You are just making shit up, just like el trumpo.


Don’t let actual history get in the way of you pushing a fictional docudrama.


LameCommenter

quoting ” “In 2018, the Trump administration fired the government’s entire pandemic response chain of command, including the White House management infrastructure.”


If Trump fired a major chain of command in an entrenched, deep state stodgy old mess, more power to him. He was elected to do so in the opinion of many.


He’s not the idiot the slanted media portrays, he didn’t fire a bunch of old timers just to leave us defenseless, and replacement immunologists and epidemiologists are available all the time. IF he fired, no big. We’ve probably got better in place now. Next he should clean out the U.N.W.H.O. if he gets the authority to do so.

The gubmint can’t do s**t to help anyone, and only fools think it can, regardless of its budget. If you’re not a prepper, now is a good time to become one. People with a well-stocked cabin off the grid somewhere will be able to sit this one out quite comfortably. Hell, they might even be able to watch riots in the big cities on satellite TV over a shot of whiskey for entertainment. In all seriousness, watch History Channel’s “After Armageddon” — somebody uploaded the full movie to YouTube.


LameCommenter

We lived South-Central adjacent in the R. King riots. You betcha gub mint can’t do anything but pull back, watch the shelves rioted to emptiness. Nobody was immune, an Af-Am buddy had her store (7-11) destroyed (not burned thank goodness), We and many we know are “prepped” partially, but are uncertain of how long our MRE (yuk)and canned food would hold out, never having gone so far and paranoid as to make a three or ten day test. Our bad.

Today is a good time to buy stock and invest in the company that will develop the immunity vaccine. If successful you live to enjoy the big profit if not you may not live.


RalphKane

Heh, none of the howling leftists who post around here have any money to invest.
