  1. It killing people faster than people can know what's hit them and these people are saying it's not that serious.
    Trump needs to close down our boarders to China for people that are trying to travel just because. Other counties are protecting their people why can't Trump do this simple job…at least this one but of course he won't because he protects the interest of the money makers and the Corona VIRUS will make the hospitals, big Pharma and the FDA tons of money.
    Vote for whoever wins the primary election otherwise we will get stuck with Trump again who is only for the rich. That's all he has helped. Wake up AMERICA!!!

  2. You guys just described a common cold or flu. What the heck? Is this corona virus a hoax? Or is it actually the normal cold and flu that goes round every year? It sure sounds like it. This corona virus they are talking about is called "Novel" Corona virus. "Novel" means: "a fictitious prose narrative of book length, typically representing character and action with some degree of realism." "Corona" means: "a part of the body resembling or likened to a crown." This whole thing is a big fat lie. You people are just messing with our minds, because you think we the people are stupid. You people at CBS are the sick ones because this is just another big fat HOAX.

  3. Masks don't really protect you from the virus, so please save them for the medical personnel…. the surgical masks should be worn if you're sick and not wanting to potentially spread the virus, but don't wear pne thinking it will protect you because the particles can get yhrough it easily. So many contradictions.

  4. Reporters please ask President Trump, what happens if people are sent home and lose their income, due to the virus. Most american,s are living pay check to pay check it's a fact. What contingencies will be in place. Every state needs a 1800 number for emergency due to this virus people need to know who to call so they don't infect emergency rooms and doctor's offices if they get sick.

  5. In China, they arrest people for not wearing a mask. Here in the US, people are too rebellious to wear a mask, and so many people would take advantage of pretending to be cautious, just so they can go out and party or take a long vacation. I hate to sound pessimistic, but I just don't see how they can contain the virus here in America.

  6. No one can withstand the wrath of The Most High, hope you heathens enjoyed y'all ruler ship, for this is the end of it all and you people will never rise up again so enjoy what's left of the fruits of y'all wickedness, because wickedness cannot last for too long

  7. Dr LaPook and Dr Fauci are the BEST BEST experts Drs of anyone around in world… would trust what they say.. thanks we got them at least

  8. Dr. Jon Lapook: Dr. Luisa Marchioni said on Italian TV that she cured a Chinese family with medicines used for HIV/AIDS and Ebola. Please look into retro-viruses!

  9. I have a cold now. Was able to take worst of it off but still have a lingering cough. Pretty much no one with a cold gets tested to find out what virus causes it.
