    NYC has done sewer testing and found the virus in the water, which is recycled to be drinking water, shower water, toilet, etc. Expect to get the virus and act like you already have it. Listen to Disease expert/investigator on Joe Rogans podcast, his name is Michael Osterholm and is probably in the recommendations to your right on desktop or below on mobile.

    As a delusional stumbling block to solving this pandemic, I declare that I know more than the experts, and the doctors- and as this task foce meets every day– thousands are being infecting, and hundreds and hundreds are dying– SBA will now talk to distract you from the facts that there are still no masks, no tests, and no ventilators– remember only I can help you — and this is all the fault of crooked Hillary and Obama–

    The big baby, waah , it’s not my fault, waah, Obama did it, waah, but Hillary started it, waah, fake news, waah!
    I want my binky!

    It’s time for the adults to take over, Trump’s incompetence, downplaying, and his slow reaction is now killing people.

    We need a real leader takes responsibility and hopefully gets us out of Trump’s mess with minimal casualties as possible.

    That's what you're like, american !!!!! The United States is facing heavy criticism for seizing a shipment of FFP2-class protective mascara in Bangkok designed for Berlin police officers made by the US firm 3M. According to the regional government in Berlin, the shipment was "confiscated". Berlin's local government has called the move "modern piracy," the BBC reported on Saturday.Berlin's Interior Minister Andreas Geisel said the masks ordered did not arrive and were apparently heading to the US.
    We see this as an act of modern piracy. That's not the way trans-Atlantic partners act. Even in times of global crisis, there should be no wild-west methods. I appeal to the federal government to call on the United States to abide by international laws," Geisel said.According to the minister, the intervention appears to be related to the current ban on the United States exporting masks. 3M, which manufactures the devices, announced Friday that the White House has ordered it to halt all supplies of respirators from U.S. factories to Canada and Latin America, although there may be "significant humanitarian consequences."The US used the Law of the Korean War
    The U.S. State Department and The Interior Department's departments coordinating U.S. efforts to locate and secure protective equipment have not yet responded to a request for comment. But the United States activated a Law of the Korean War that allows strategic material to be confiscated, order factories to do what to do, and distribute it.

    I have not read the many comments, so it's possible someone has raised this issue, but I would like to know what, if anything, is being done for citizens with defaulted student loans to prevent federal or private lenders or guarantors from intercepting tax return funds that might include a stimulus payment and that would otherwise reach the debtor citizen during this time of need. I guess this is assuming we need to file returns to get the stimulus payment.

    Trump’s been vaccinated and him and Putin put this virus 🦠 out into the world. Believe it until one of them dies. He isn’t behaving like a germaphobe
    at all.

    Dear Americans, please wake up. It seems the USA holds the number 1 position in the most number of affected peoples. Still, there is no proper lockdown in your country and seems your president only concerned about the Economy and no your Lives

    The Corona Virus is a Man made virus created by the United States government, China and iluminati. Look rewind back to January 26, 2020 when Koybe Bryant died. Nobody had the Corona virus! Our country was completely healthy! There were no problems of any of us getting sick. So why the next day, January 27, 2020 USA newspaper creates a article we are working on a antidote for Corona virus? Why? We didn't have any virus at all, so why does Trumph and and government need to create a cure? Why? They created the virus and intentionally killed innocent people for no reason! Yes your government purposely released the virus to ruin your life, destroy your job and slow down the whole world. These evil people did this and they know it. Trumph, iluminati and China needs to be put in jail and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law for this terrible conspiracy. Creating a virus and lying saying it came from a bat that is a crime. They have murdered innocent people for no reason.

    So what's new, the impeached President of the United States, Peter Pan the Confidence Man, and his Fox news , Stinker Bell. It's not his fault, as others in the past, lenders as well as people and now countries have allowed themselves to be taken hostage, a young boy in a man's body. Donald John Trump pioneered "to big to fail," which wall street embraced causing & resolving the '8 system failure, and is now perfecting a descent into depression, creating a slave class and/or angry mob the likes of which America has never seen. Case study, remember how he berated senator Lindsey Graham, "you could not get elected dog catcher," and now he is his #1 minion. To understand Trumps American vision, watch the You Tube Trump Rally, South Carolina when he was preparing for the corona virus, 02/28/2020. Be sure to have a barf bag.

    Allah SWT said:
    "And you will surely find them the most greedy of people for life – [even] more than those who associate others with Allah. One of them wishes that he could be granted life a thousand years, but it would not remove him in the least from the [coming] punishment that he should be granted life. And Allah is Seeing of what they do."
    (QS. Al-Baqara 2: Verse 96)

    Chinese government manipulated it all. They knew about this for long and they
    knew this would cause a chaos same as it’s country and this was their chance to take over the world as they don’t care about their own people given that their country is overpopulated. They suck and Trump knew they were fishy

    Here is why you should wear masks, no matter what you hear:
    Please protect your airways!
    1) Covid:19 can floats in the air for up to 2 to 3 hrs according to experts, doctors, and scientists. Which means that no one has to even be near you in order for you to be infected. Example 1: Someone could sneeze, cough, laugh, or talk in a store isle, park, parking lot or anywhere ( inside or outside). Then 3 hrs later you can walk through, breath in the virus, and become infected ( even with social distancing). Example 2: You are walking about 20 feet behind someone in the store ( or sidewalk) who coughs, then you walk through, you breath in the virus and become infected dispite keeping 6 feet social distance. (Because the virus floats for 2 to 3 hrs). Why the experts have not seemed to connect those dots is mind blowing!!
    2) Given the above fact that the virus floats in the air, social distancing alone will not be as effective.
    3) Asymptomatic: Trump says he feels good so he won't be wearing a mask and seems to suggest very nonchalantly that its not that serious. What does "feeling good" have anything to do with coronavirus when we all know that you can be asymptomatic and still be contagious? Therefore everyone should wear a mask because you can be a carrier and infecting others without knowing.
    These are the dumbest smart ppl Ive ever seen. They never connect the dots!! Please do not listen to Trump and Please wear a mask when you leave your home.
    There are many videos on YouTube on making masks even without a sewing machine. Make sure its thick ( 4 to 6 layers or more) with at least 2 or so layers of cotton inside if possible. Make a few so you can alternate and hand wash and sanitize them daily. Something is better than nothing. Keep doing all the other things as well like: wash hands ( keep a jug of water and soap in your car/trunk if you dont have sanitizer in order to clean your hands before sitting in the car, wash all items that come into your home, clean all handles, internal and external door knobs, don't touch your face (nose/mouth, eyes), Stay home

    In reality there is no hero to save people’s life. But in America’s movies Spiderman/Batman/superman/wonderful woman and etc. But today the real hero is just your faith in god. Just isolate yourself from others and pray to god for all people around the world as much you can.

    Trump failed to prevent this China Virus. He told in press that this virus is just common cold nothing to worry about. After He F up, he is too busy over propaganda over fixing problem. Let's see if this fool wins next election and it will show how our future will be. US is in better position if S Korean CDC is in control over our situation over our own CDC because our own CDC is too busy with propaganda lies covering Trump and S Korean CDC seem to be always one step in front of us with prevention plan. I am Republican.
