    He’s a total fraud. It’s just the flu. Just look at the number of deaths in China, there were 3200 out of a population of 1.5 billion, not panic numbers.

      China locked everything down and it slowed the spread. Now other countries are following suit. If there was no lockdown this thing would be way worse and every major cities hospitals would be so inundated with the sick and dying you’d think it was Armageddon.

      I would like you to carefully study the number of corpes incinerated every day for the last month. A guy did that and presented a Chinese website with data and in the replies, a few Chinese people confirmed those numbers.
      And they were in thousands per day. Incinerators were working for 24*7 and with full capacity. Go figure.

    People start to wear mask not only for them but also for others. Asymptomatic infected person can spread virus even 5 days before symptom shows. It will slow down the spread. Look at Korea that almost all people wear mask and have no limit on mass gathering by authority. They also have hand sanitizer on all elevators. Liquor companies there make such sanitizer now. Mask and availability of sanitizer everywhere will significantly slow the spread.

      @fight 2019 lol that’s what I told my friend the other day, 4 years from now this will be long gone and everybody will be wearing masks still. Doubt it, but it would be kind of funny

      @Casey Lance well, I hate wearing mask too, but at the time of global pandemic, it might be a good idea. Also, disinfection is very important

    Unpopular Opinion: We’re treating this like it were Ebola. While I agree we need to take action, I’ve heard nothing of the virus having the potential to mutate to anything worse than a strain of the flu.

    It’s interesting how the CBC and Trudeau mocked Trump for closing air travel into the US as extreme and inappropriate. Then in the following week Trudeau does the same thing.
    Both the CBC and Trudeau are world class hypocrites.

    Yes…he probably phoned Justin Trudeau to ask for advice on what to do…that must have been the reason why Justin was 40 minutes late to his own press briefing on Corona. I should write material for the CBC…except I’m not on the social fringe.

    Amazing how many people insist “the media is biased against Trump”. They’ll never accept that he’s simply a moron and a crooked, crooked POS…even when American lives are being lost because of his incompetence and arrogance. This is one of the lowest points in American history. For once, Trump may be able to honestly say that he has set a historical record.

    Any one calling just Trump a moron really have to take a second look at our PM. Our PM has finally began to implement what the US did a week ago. Trudeau talks better then Trump but words wont stop or slow COVID. Only action will. At least Trump did something. More then our gov can say.

    Yes Trump heard about the virus happening in China in January and went golfing that same day! Oh Yes very concerned, took Trump till March 6th and worried about the markets! 👎 🛑
    In fact Trump said the virus was a Hoax! Then he said it infected only 15 people and would just disappear! 🤣 Trump’s son said the virus was just another way the democrats were using the fears of the COVID-19 to make sure his dad would not get reelected in 2020! The whole Trump family just tells inaccurate information and lies to the public all the time! 🤴👎😷

    This is a depopulation tactic. Nothing more . Trump has gotten the plug on the swamp almost completely pulled to drain ti. Where are all the dead animals in the streets if that is where it started. I only hear about people. Employment too good. Economy too good. Stock market too good. Swamp draining started. Impeachment not working. We need a virus!!! Please.

    Shut everything down for 2 weeks, then open everything back up and let he virus spread again. is trump going to shut everything down again then? no wonder the markets have sold off, trump is causing the economy to crash and risking a housing crash next followed by bank runs. Horrible response and completely overblown

    Keep in mind that due to NAFTA, most of our food distribution has gone to the larger American companies so even buying BC apples and Alberta beef must be from the US. If the US falls apart, we won’t even get our own produce.
