There was evidence that also came out, that China knew about this strands jump from animal to human as far back as 2009.
I'm not buying into how threatening this thing is supposed to be. The CDC said we'd be at 120 million cases by now, and 250 million cases by July.
Xi Jinping, The President of China, has been video recorded without wearing a mask this whole time ... up until yesterday.
Then, there were the Chinese protests against the direction the Government, and thousands of people got arrested. All of a sudden, Xi Jinping goes on TV wearing a mask, and demands everyone does the same.
Absolutely, we didn't have a good scouting report on this thing. And I believe we still don't. It's hard to figure who's telling the truth in all of this. And instead of straightening everything out, Washington DC is playing politics, hoping to use it against Trump, because they don't have a snowflakes chance mid-August in central Florida of winning the White House.
Here, my local Planet Fitness opened yesterday. South Bend is finally getting close to normalcy. Stores have signs posted stating that masks are required to enter. However, because Indiana laws have said that masks are a recommendation, not a requirement, most places aren't enforcing the policy.
I had been taking a mask with me, in the event that I would have been denied service otherwise. I have yet to wear it, and have not been to I need to put it on. I have since stopped carrying it in my pocket, and just leave it in the car.
In all that time, I haven't seen one person with so much as a sniffle.
This past Autumn, there was a huge panic in Northern Indiana & Lower Michigan over Zika Virus. They had started playing high school football games at 4 pm, rather than after sundown, in order to prevent people from contracting it by mosquito bite; which doesn't make any friggin' sense, as mosquitoes bite just as frequently during the day around here.
I did not meet a single person who either had gotten it, or even knew anyone else who'd contracted it.
Remember the West Nile fear ..? How about the Ebola scare .?.
While Bill Gates is running his mouth about injecting everyone with a Vaccine that has a tracking chip in it; because according to him, a bigger & worse virus is "Likely" to be coming, soon.
A pattern seems to have formed.
