The mainstream media is trying to work the public into a panic over the coronavirus.
Americans need to hear a levelheaded message that will tell them the truth.
Trump’s doctor said 7 somber words to guide America through the week ahead.
America is a different country than it was a week ago.
Schools, businesses, restaurants, churches and gatherings have closed down.
People are working from home, or out of work for the moment, trying to homeschool children and struggling to find a new normal.
That shift is stressful and the terrifying stories circulating on the news make the panic worse.
It’s easy to feel caught in an endless string of bad news.
As America’s coronavirus testing gets into gear the number of cases are going to go shockingly up.
The good news is that it means that America’s testing capacity has gotten far better and as America gets better at testing it will be easier to tell who has the virus and who doesn’t.
The more people that are tested the more the death rate will go down but the number of people who have the virus will continue to climb, the number of dead will continue to climb.
This virus is serious but the vast majority of people who get it will recover. WHO estimates it has a 3% death rate.
America’s medical system will not get over run as fast as other countries. America has 170,000 ventilators, far more than Germany’s 25,000 or Britain that has only 5,000. America is also number 1 in the world in terms of ICU beds.
Even though America is better prepared than the rest of the world, we are still on the upward slope of the outbreak and the Surgeon General has warned the American people “This week, it’s going to get bad.”
According to the Washington Examiner:
U.S. Surgeon General Jerome Adams is warning that the coronavirus pandemic is far from over.
Appearing on NBC’s TODAY show on Monday, Adams said people should be ready for a challenging week.
“I want America to understand this week, it’s going to get bad. We really need to come together as a nation,” Adams said. “We really, really need everyone to stay at home.”
“I think there are a lot of people who are doing the right things, but I think that, unfortunately, we are finding out a lot of people think this can’t happen to them,” he added. “We don’t want Dallas or New Orleans or Chicago to turn into the next New York. It means everyone needs to be taking the right steps right now.”
The next week will be a challenge but America is a country that rises to greatness when faced with obstacles.
America will rise to the occasion, we can see it in the teachers that are teaching students remotely, laid off workers sewing masks for hospitals in need, parents finding creative ways to entertain their children, medical professionals doing their jobs on the frontlines of the fight against the Chinese coronavirus.
The next week may be tough but Americans are tougher.
