It is time to reject the temptation of denial of the AIDS/HIV crisis; to reject false prophets who preach the quick-fix strategies of condoms and free needles;

Don't use the phrase "you lied." That insinuates pre-planned wrongdoing. That's #ing rude.

It’s not in the best interest of the government to test people. Any large reported outbreak will tank the stock market. And that’s what they’re protecting the most. Never forget that with this administration it’s politics over everything. Before you, me, or any of us.
It’s smarter politically if they play it down and make people think that it’s not a big deal. So most people stay home when they get sick and don’t go to the doctor and add to the numbers. They don’t care how many people it endangers. Just that they still have the artificially inflated stock market numbers to wave around.
If you care at all about your safety, you won’t take as truth what the President tells you on this. This is the man who had an economic advisor give a statement on the virus. That should tell you everything you need to know.
Meanwhile plenty of people here with lots of experience and knowledge have confirmed this isn't the hair on fire sky-screaming disaster that you want to make it out to be, because YOU are politics over everything.
Stop being a petty alarmist. Every post you make even remotely related to public health manages to damage your already near non-existent credibility.

Plus, as I stated, 80,000 people died of just plain old influenza two winters ago. As of the 7th of March there have been 17 (seventeen) deaths attributed to this virus. In the same period there have been exponentially more deaths in the US from the plain old flu. Yet you are whining about this.
The fact is You are the problem. You are over-reacting and going crazy for no good reason. If you happen to get the virus, stay home and drink a lot of Gatorade. There's over a 95% chance you will be fine.

🤷♂️ I dunno man, countries quarantining millions of people, people fighting over toilet paper, cruise ships stuck in the water not being allowed to dock at ports. 🤷♂️ It seems we are living in 2 realities within the states our governments are saying it’s just the flu, stay home if you get sick it’s no big deal.
Don’t panic check. Don’t put my head in the sand check. I project the ivory tower elites will continue to say to us it’s just the flu.
