Dont talk about “facts”....this is nothing more than speculation and hysterical fear.

No proof yet this will be worse than H1N1 or a bad flu season.
With all due respect, the Coronavirus and the bad flu are totally different. There are drugs for the flu and in most cases a vaccine. At this point in time, we have neither for the Coronavirus. We need to lower the curve to save as many lives as we can.

Check the statistics. People are contracting this virus and dying. I’m safely at home with my dog. The numbers in NY and NJ are multiplying rapidly. My daughter bowls with 2 people in NJ who contracted COVID-19. One recovered and is home from the hospital, the other is still hospitalized and is on a respirator. Whether you believe it or not, this is a real threat, especially to our demographics. I have a cousin whose friend has died of the virus. I’m not an alarmist but I am intelligent enough to understand the facts. Yes, the economy is disastrous right now. But is you put everyone back together again they will be together in a cemetery. Look at what is happening in Italy. They waited to self isolate and now the physicians have stopped treating the very elderly. That is known as “thinning of the herd”. Open your eyes.

The Surgeon General said today, in Trumps virtual town hall, that about 90% of people who are now being tested come back negative 👎... ie no covid19.

That number however is only about 75% for those in NYC area.

I think you have it backwards. That view is definitely NOT a conservative view.

I still can't figure the guns and ammo angle. Are they afraid people will go crazy and start robbing or attacking you for your toilet paper?

Here are your statistics if we don't stop this. Estimated number of people infected 40 to 80% of the U.S. population. Mortality rate from the World Health Organization is 3.6% (significantly higher among those over 70). 330 million people in the U.S at a 40% infection rate means that 132 million people infected. 3.6% of those will die. That is 4,752,000 dead people (most of them over 70).

An estimate like that doesn't even rate a response

Health Officials Warn Against Self-Medicating With Chloroquine for Coronavirus After Man Dies From Taking Fish Tank Cleaner

Because some cannot keep quiet, does not mean you need believe them.

They heard for weeks "this drug" could help....heard that part but ignored the constant warning from others on the same stage.

So people are hoarding, having panic attacks, buying guns and ammo because of the media and it’s own “ special” hype?

Are you saying you think President Roosevelt was asleep at the wheel?

You obviously did not read or comprehend the story. And it was NOT the media who poisoned the mans mind to do this. Only media involvement was aiming the camera

Read it t again....as far as the media.....many of them spent the last week warning everyone this might happen.

You have a unique lack of understanding.

So, you can sit home, button up and not be in contact with anyone and collect your social security check and you’ll be fine but what about 5hose who depend on a paycheck? They need to get back to work and this hysteria isn’t helping

Can you not wonder why so many are not taking this virus seriously, and continue to ignore all warnings
Conflicting and dramatic facts and advice from news sources.
'Experts' being wheeled out in never ending numbers, to spout their latest theories and agenda,
Hospitals practicaly begging for such basic things as masks, and a lack of testing kits, yet the population is assured that all is 'Perfect' and under control
Now the latest quote from the President that he is hoping to have America open for business, and lifting many of the restrictions by Easter.
No worries there then!

Meanwhile in New York and other major cities............................

Stay well.

I mean almost all of the national television news channels. All day long, they are displaying a chart showing "total cases" and "deaths", which is misleading to many people because the chart does not show the number of tests performed. As the number of tests increase, the number of reported cases will also increase.
