  1. How stupid. 8400 Americans have DIED of the flu and nothing. 2 people have the Corona bug, are alive and well, and Washington flips, and WHO, flip out. Wtf is wrong with these fake news mongers? Jesus.

  2. oh, thank goodness. I wish he had said 3 weeks, though, just to be sure. This infection is causing the bronchi in the lungs to burst. That is why we are seeing blood on the ground in the some of the videos from China where people just collapse dead in the street. This virus is very serious. Just go to twitter and look at the feeds for "Wuhan virus" or "coronavirus" or some of the others.

  3. I think what we need to be asking is what private rights get reduced or suspended with this type of declaration and what dies it now give the US government and the president cartc blanche to do? For example, did tou know that the Public Health Emergency allows the government to "suspend" HIPAA? The little privacy with your doctor is gone should the government chose to start "categorizing " people etc. to see who has been sick etc.

  4. Hahaha, they're trying to use the Corona virus as a distraction. My prediction: when the corrupt Republicans acquit trump, they'll scream "virus!" and use it as an excuse to clamp down on the inevitable MASSIVE protests. Maybe they'll go as far as martial law…that'd be funny given all the conspiracy theorists who claimed Obama was going to do that. But it's always that way…anything the right wing nuts claim about democrats, from pedophilia rings, to illegal votes, to martial law…it's always because republicans are the ones actually doing it.

  5. They should shut down the Republican Party, because they have the sleazebag disease. If you get this crap in America, and don't have health insurance because you can't afford it, you are screwed. If Trump and the republicans built this hospital, there would be a sign on the front door saying no peons allowed, only those who can afford expensive private insurance allowed. Over 40-million Americans have no health insurance, and some of these morons even voted republican, despite them telling them they were going to destroy the ACA. So if you don't get that people, if Trump built this hospital, a bed would cost you a $100,000, and the roof would collapse on you, because Trump cheated the contractors, and the workers who built it.
