Since the world media went into a frenzy over COVID-19 it certainly would seem they have had a field day when it comes to making exciting headlines to grab your attention. People read the news, panic ensues and now look at where we are. Yet, apart from the very limited symptoms which can also be lined up to a seasonal flu or any number of other influenza type illness that are global, all the time, all year round. The question should be, are we being had?

Swine Flu: 575,400 Deaths.

Did you hear this kind of uproar when swine flu was around? - Just to confirm to those that may not know, Swine Flu hit us between April 2009 – 10 August 2010.

Yes, not long ago. It also effected younger people not older. Yet here we are, reacting to COVID-19 like the plague.

Some will lead you to believe this is some how different, more deadly, highly contagious. Let me also report to you another set of figures.

The WHO estimates that between 290,000 and 650,000 respiratory deaths globally each year are associated with seasonal influenza.

It has been 3 months, possibly 4 and the numbers are still not even slightly high enough to rank among Swine Flu nevermind Seasonal Influenza.

The news papers exaggerate, which then people panic. The people share their worries with their place of work, public panic ensues. False information is sold for click ratings, the government does not have plans in place to tackle such hysteria nor tackle an actual pandemic. We have what we have today.

However, what is concerning is the action of countries to use this to control their people. Internet monitoring, policing of streets, curfews, fines. This is not far from what its like to live in North Korea.

They aren’t very receptive to good news on coronavirus around here.

I hope you thread does better than my 4 did.

I like that. Seemingly not far from the truth.

I'm not disagreeing with your point. I'm not in panic mode yet but I've never seen a reaction like this at the federal, state, and local level. Pro and college sports all cancelled. Every public school in my state is closed. They've closed Disney world. Even casinos are shutting their doors. My slave drivers have even given the go ahead to work from home. The grocery stores have been picked over like a horror movie and every channel is talking about the virus.

This isn't the conspiracy theorist in me saying this but it seems like world governments know a lot more about this virus than we do just based on the steps they're taking. Yeah..it may turn out to be nothing but based on the reactions around the ENTIRE GLOBE, it seems like they're expecting the other shoe to drop.

Did you hear Trump today?

He said something like this is very, very bad. It's bad, this virus is bad. Bad, bad, bad.

Was he fearmongering? Do you not believe our President? Do you think Trump is in on the Vast Left World Conspiracy?

This is the new age of internet and television. Where everything needs to be televised and spoken about 24/7. This kind of constant bombardment of repetitive regurgitation of information is basically unintentional conditioning. There are far too many people now that don't work or don't work a job for many hours so they spend their life just watching the news.

You could be the most beautiful person in the world but if someone keeps telling you are ugly, eventually you will believe it.

Same scenario just on a grander scale.

The media have caused the stock markets to crash, this shows you the influence they have. They have unintentionally caused this panic, from their greed to make money from stories.

Like I said posting in another thread somewhere else on here, I'm pretty sure a large percentage of people (perhaps particularly ATSers) actually enjoy panicking.
We can't spoil their spook, ya know.

Swine Flu: 575,400 Deaths.

Where was the panic and fear then ?
How many folks quarantined themselves or were quarantined ?
How many schools closed ?
Was there a shortage of toilet paper ? (or anything for that matter)

You are doing the good work as well.
Denying Ignorance.
Keep on with it.

He’s been forced to say that . He was right in the beginning when he said it’s no big deal most of you are just going to get the flu .

But for saying that the MSM and the Democrats tore him a new asshole . They have the public convinced now and just like with any liberal narrative . If you say something that doesn’t agree with it they will turn you into a monster .

He can’t fight back this time even though he knows it’s fake news . Because again they have the useful idiots of the public convinced including a lot of conservatives.

I can tell you one thing, my 401k is started to look like it contracted covid-19. So while we can debate whether or not the virus is worth the panic or not, many of us are really taking a hit from it. I can't imagine what small business owners are dealing with right now.

While I believe the virus is bad, and I feel for everyone suffering, or who has lost a loved one, I was watching the CBS world news tonight. (Yes, I know better)

I'm not gonna lie, I wanted to punch ole Nora in the boob.

Her expressions, tone, and attitude, were nothing but made to panic people. And while I understand she is probably under orders from above, I still wanted to yell at her.

The Media is making things worse.

and what would happen if he said it? if the whole thing is a fake, it'll come out. he would be the big winner.

who exactly is lying to me? angela merkel? or was she lied to, too, and it was the chinese? and why do the chinese let their own people die first? maybe it's just a virus. viruses are everywhere. you have some in you too. that's normal. or is the whole world a conspiracy and this conversation here only takes place in my reality and you don't even exist?

Oh Moses smell the roses......

Do you seriously believe everything Donald says and take it verbatim? If you do, then you need to start using your brain a little bit more...and before you get fired up, I support him too.

In the beginning he was downplaying the severity of this, like a normal, rational human being and he got absolutely torched for it.

Now he he HAS to go along with the 'coronavirus bad' narrative or the Dems and others will personally hold him accountable for any new case or death that comes from it.

Come on man......

Thankyou for this, I am in 100% agreement with you.

People love drama these days and seem to thrive off of it.

This site is also full of 'preppers' who seem to include some pretty sick individuals among their ranks who salivate at the idea of societal collapse and cheer lead it the bloody whacko's.

You really think Trump can be forced to sabotage his own election?

IDK man. I hope you all are right and I am a fool for thinking this one is different.

I poo-pooed the bird flu and swine flu and all the others. This ain't the same. Could just be the media these days, IDK.

Read his lips.

I agree with this. I am not an epidemiologist so I cannot speak to the dangers (or lack thereof) from CV. However, the response is breath taking. Way out of proportion to the impact on peoples health.

It would seem like a lot of things were in place and this was simply the ruse to implement it. Normally I am of the belief governments are simply not that organized to pull off the fabled "NWO Takeover". But this event sure is pulling away the curtain on the wanna-be mini-dictators.
