    We are in a very serious and critical situation. Media people should not try to push interviewees into what they want them to say. We need honest and accurate information.
    Thanks Dr Fauci for your honest and valuable answers.

      Gooogleisntyour Friend : Virus every election year..Democrats hell bent on impeaching Trump failed, So what we have here is DESPERATE DEMOCRATS…I wonder how much money George Soro’s, Obama, Hillary, and the Deep State paid to create this bs virus,! Don’t think they would kill you..These are the same people who wants babies murdered after birth.. These are the same people brainwashing parents to change the sex of a 3 year old.. These are the same pure evil people who supports Pedophilia and normalizing it. These are the same people involved in child sex trafficking.. Open borders are proof of that, not mention Hillary’s foundation that was used for child sex trafficking in Haiti.. There is other things that they are causing that I can’t mention, because my comment would be removed. It’s happening in South Africa right now to white farmer’s.. The same agenda these evil liberals are screaming for. Children in South Africa being ganged raped and tortured and boiled alive. Children forced to watch their mothers ganged raped and slaughtered. Babies raped…It’s so horrible what’s happening in South Africa that most people could not fathom. Same Agenda being pushed by CNN and all liberal platforms.. The liberal sick minds can’t be changed because God gave them over to a reprobate mind..

    The doctor that died in China why is 34 years old

    • Rusty Morris says:

      @Tammy McConnell He was arrested at first for sounding the Covid 19 alarm.

    • Jason Jensen says:

      I heard, but do not KNOW, that the doctor was a smoker, as many are in China despite their medical knowledge. The virus attacks the Lungs, specifically. Infection causes inflammation, which lets in fluids as the inflammation tears the air sacs, so you can’t take a full breath and the fluid prevents O2 from getting in, while your CO2 can’t get out. You suffocate like a fish on a dock gasping for air.

      Smokers (aka self-inflicted Lung Disease), Diabetics, HIV (40 million people) and others with Auto-Immune Disease are at much higher risk of death, along with those increasingly with Age 60+.

      Please listen to the good Dr. John Campbell who does daily updates and provides practical medical information, which you should go back and watch them all to learn what you can, because the Corporate Media isn’t even trying to educate folks.

      The range at risk is not above 80, can you imagine what the panic would be like if the range was reported that it may be between 31 – 80 with a mid-range of 53 (wink wink), and that kids to do get “serious” but less frequently… Just imagine if that info was shared, say by the lead department health official of say “Ohio” etc… or actual photo age of 30 – 40 olds in developed European countries. Hmm… Think what the “random” internet comment just hinted at?

      Waiting for a command from their boss who pays them ..the chief twiddler/toddler/diddler/twitterer who said it was a hoax that the democrats came up with,so…. The news told us. Thankfully. My guy came home fri givin me sh*t for going grocery shopping even tho I was going anyway.(Spent my own money) After I made sure he had his flippin sparkling water ( he stopped drinking beer,so…) told me I over reacted. Yeah..THAT’S what’s going on here. (He later apologized after watching the GD news for once!) I got the last 2 cases of the stuff.I’m still secretly fuming, tho. I don’t need that crap after waiting in line for hours!!he told me that trump prob masterminded the virus so he can (somehow?) have the cure n b the hero? See how it works.and I’m married to that.No way 2 b a hero when people died bcuz of inaction,but, somehow,people have a hard time seeing he is just that stupid or cold even tho it’s been from day one. I’m American n looking around n not liking what I’m seeing in many around me, but, many more are awesome,so gotta just keep remembering that.

    • boxfrotwres says:

      @tim meier you got it…the stupido-in-chief got to the point of claiming that they are doing better than during the swine flu…at that time (during Obama) the reaction time was one week and in one month we had 1 million tests available, while now 3 month after the first case in China we have 11,000 tests available…what a DUMB ASS…

    • ChristianMission says:

      @boxfrotwres nobody said this is a hoax

      Exactly. No matter he says she’s directs them conversation towards fear. What “if” scenarios. When he tries to redirect she disregards and goes right back to the fearful questions.

      @Thomas Jensen u r selfish

    • takecare A says:

      @Thomas Jensen That’s the problem with the US. You guys believe in freedom to, as opposed to freedom from. You want the right to leave town, and dont give a toss about others who require freedom from disease. If you leave town and have an awful car accident, you’d want help from that town and their hospital, not giving a crap that their hospital may already be over stretched. As a nation, you guys are incredibly selfish.

    • Thomas Jensen says:

      @takecare A what you said makes no fucking sense.

    • Thomas Jensen says:

      @takecare A we don’t get help from the town or the hospital…we pay for that help and we pay generously for that help….so shut your snout hole.

    • S Ss says:

      @Thomas Jensen It makes complete sense. All freedoms have a trade-off. Your freedom to move around freely during a pandemic makes it more likely that you will get infected, that you’ll spread it to others, and that people will die due to the medical system becoming overworked.

      Yes of course Trump supporters represent the flagwaving bewildered, uneducated, racist and disenfranchised, angry, hostile masses of america… But clearly those ARE the majority. Which is why Trump will win again next time.

    • Janusha says:

      @Loneplains Drifter
      America really loves to hate CNN dont they.

    • Klara Stern says:

      @Janusha we both know, that a huge portion of humanity is easily manipulated, because they have no good education and lack the ability to process large amounts of data.

    • Janusha says:

      @Klara Stern
      Stupid… The word youre looking for is “stupid”. A lot of people are dumb as shit. Like I said above, yes. If you are uneducated but clever… Then you will get yourself educated. Being uneducated is for the stupid. There is no excuse. Literally nobody to blame. If you lack the ability to process data, then you are stupid. Thats the very hallmark of being stupid.

How the conditions in hospitals are, because TOO MANY GOT SICK TOO FAST?! How people died on the floors, because everything was full? How doctors and nurses screamed and wanted to die, because they were so overwhelmed? Italy is also overwhelmed… the video of the guy with his dead sister? Who made a video, because nobody could help him?! Doctors and nursing talking about hard choices they have to make, because they system is overwhelmed?!And Italy has no orange moron, who pretended everything was fine! And they have a WAY BETTER health care system than you do! You’re behind! You have a shitload of infected people walking around, because of the lack of testing, because Trump didn’t want the cases known, because it would make him look bad! People WILL die! You will have MILLIONS(!) of infected! Just fucking hope, that they don’t come all at once, because your 12000 ventilators will NOT BE ENOUGH! You need to get this information to people, who still party in large crowds! People STILL don’t understand what’s happening right now! You are a prime example of an ignorant idiot! And don’t you forget how Fox played this thing down after it finally sinks in what’s happening around you!

    Seems like Americans are underestimating this like we did in Europe when it was contained in Asia. The number and death rate might not seem too worrying currently, but that is because it is just starting to spread. Learn from Italy. No other virus has shown the ability to spread like this one in the last century

      @sixStringsforWords Hmmm, its very interesting that you mention that. I always like to hear the stories of people from those actual countries instead of listening to the main stream media.

    • Alan Brookes says:

      Johnny Walker , There is no public health system in the US, in short, because the richest nation in the world has no capacity to protect the public as a whole, apart from national defense. Ad-hoc remedies such as House Democrats and the White House fashioned on Friday are better than nothing, but they don’t come close to filling this void. The truth will be laid bare shortly!
