Blown way out of proportion by the (((MSM))). yes if you are old or sick be careful like you would anyway with a bad flu going around. No need to crash the economy for tv ratings and to try to sabotage trump.

^^^You're sort of correct and sort of wrong.

10:52 is the poster child for TDS. He (and obviously it's a he) thinks everything is about Trump, and is clearly deranged. How about this 10:52: go hang out in hospitals for the next week or two. Then you'll see how blown out of proportion this is.

^^Clearly you have not done so so STFU!

Recall a couple of years ago...flu season overloaded hospitals, it happens regularly. Hospitals are designed for maximum profits and are built to be just large enough to handle the regular load. if there is a glut now it's from ppl freaked out because they have flu symptoms...the vast majority of ppl will simply get over it just like the flu. Yes, the old and infirm are at higher risk, but that is ALWAYS the case.

Why must the ((MSM))) continue to lie about and spin every little thing into an anti-trump trump argument. Think about it...the establishment cannot let an outsider succeed, it will only show what a farce our political parties are, they can never quite get anything done, let an outsider succeed and it will blow the lid off the scam.

10:52 and 11:42 nailed it. Well said.

If you watch the news, every sentence is a criticism of President Trump and basically blaming him for corona virus. Never, mind all of Europe and most of Asia are impacted as well.

The Democrat Party media such as CNN instantly politicized the virus and also bear 100% for the panic and hysteria that crashed the economy, the stock market and created panic buying.

Remember Fredo Cuomo, anchor of CNN, is Democrat New York Governor Cuomo's brother so Fredo is spreading lies to protect his brother's incompetence in New York and to undermine President Trump who was two months ahead of Cuomo and DeBlasio in addressing the spread of corona virus with a travel ban on China which the Coumo's of course accused the President of being racist with the travel ban.

So a precedent has been established that whenever there is a virus, all schools and businesses must close or they will face legal liability god forbid someone gets sick.

11:42 is dead on the money

Most folks whether Independent or Republican are blaming the media for causing mass panic and hysteria and the impact to the economy.

What the Democrat controlled media is doing may very well back-fire on the Democrat Party come November elections.

You start falsely impacting the average person's paycheck, their 401k's and their children going to school with a false narrative and it could get ugly for the Democrat Party.

What you Trumpkin TDS sufferers seem blind to is the fact that Trump makes everything about himself. The terrible, scary, mean media doesn't have to do a thing. Don't believe me? Watch Fox News. It's all about Trump too.

No. You make everything about Trump because of your singleminded, crazed, hateful obsession.
