Watch the press conference

Among notable things he says:

- 80% of people who contract the virus "self-resolve" or they get better with their own immune response and maybe some mild OTC medications

- Children appears to be less susceptible to this virus than to the flu

- Most people who get seriously ill from this virus are elderly people with underlying medical conditions

- The 1.4% mortality rate that's projected by WHO is based largely on the cases in China. In countries with better medical standards, like the US, the mortality rate should be lower

- He calls the US the best healthcare system in the world

- People should relax because the facts and the reality of the situation are not as bad as it's being made out

In short, he refuses to fearmonger and toe the party line. He largely echoes things Trump has said, comparing the virus to the flu and saying it's not worth all this panic.

I guess he was just paid off by the RNC to say all this?

Terrible! Unconscionable! Right-wing racist fascist propaganda!

HOW DARE HE CITE FACTS?! Doesn't he know that facts can hurt people's feelings?

Meanwhile, the left is prophesying a zombie apocalypse and blaming all on President Trump.

So the virus will only kill off the Boomers.

Thanks a lot, OBAMA!

A little chlorine in the gene pool, my friend. Otherwise, we've been circumventing the process of natural selection for too long...

Yep, you have to mute all the opinionated stuff being used to damage the economy the left and MSM are using right now. Then compare the CoronaVirus to other flu seasons and you can't even really tell a difference.




CDC estimates that influenza was associated with more than 35.5 million illnesses, more than 16.5 million medical visits, 490,600 hospitalizations, and 34,200 deaths during the 2018–2019 influenza season.

DeBlasio is the Mayor, Cuomo is the Governor and Fredo's older brother.

Obviously. That’s why he’s lying.

The U.S. healthcare system is actually ranked 27th in the world. Colombia in South America has better healthcare than America does.

It's worth noting as well that a lot of media outlets have been misleadingly comparing the death rate of flu in the United States, about 0.1%, to the death rate of this new virus worldwide, about 1.4%.

That's not an apples to apples comparison. So they say "Flu is only 0.1% deadly and this new virus is 1.4% deadly, so it's over 10x deadlier than flu!" That's misleading, probably purposefully so.

The 1.4% death rate, as Cuomo notes, is mostly driven by countries with lousy healthcare systems like China (gotta love that Communism) and Iran. And the worldwide death rate of flu is higher than 0.1%. Sounds like Cuomo said it's about 0.6%, so at worst this new virus is just over twice as deadly as flu.

Stop the panic. You've all been deceived by the media.

What's a "Trumpvirus"?

Is that some new made up leftist term to try and pin the blame of this outbreak on Trump? Funny how Republicans are trying to work on a solution to this and Democrats are trying to find a way to use this crisis to their advantage.

Anyone who thinks Democrats, liberals, and leftists are working for the American people are morons. Period...

So you're denying the science he cited? The math of the death rates? You don't believe any of that?

He is siting facts that the MSM has been extolling for days.
They are not saying the opposite. They are saying the very same thing.
Where do you think he got his information?
Trump is the one calling it a hoax.

I changed it to Trumpvirus as a joke, just like calling Cuomo a "noted right-winger" is a joke.

CNN's Dr. Gupta challenged Trump at the press conference last week that the death rate from flu was only 0.1%, which is not the worldwide death rate from flu. Gupta was making an apples to oranges comparison of the US death rate of flu to the worldwide death rate for this virus, which is intentionally misleading. Other outlets have repeated this lie. Cuomo used the real numbers and made a logical comparison instead of a fake one that's meant to fearmonger.

I know that's too complicated for you to understand.

Also, Trump did not call the virus a hoax. He called the Democrat-led fearmongering around the virus a hoax, and Cuomo is essentially backing him up here. You've been lied to, as usual, and you're too dumb to realize it.
