That is not the only reason at all and yes I follow the news and think people are crazy. It is dropping as weather warms as previoscorona viruses have done. It also hasn't spread to the southern hemisphere because it is warm there. The cases they have are all imported.



I live in Brazil (southern hemisphere) and yes we do have cases of community spread, and the number of new cases is multiplying every day. And it's plenty hot here.

The temperature to kill viruses is 60 degrees Celsius, regular summer weather would, I imagine, make it multiply faster

Brazil president Bolsonaro reportedly tests positive.

Looks like the Southern hemisphere myths are busted.

He was traveling as was almost alk cases in the sothern hemisphere. It is not a myth that weather helps. That is the facts from previous corona viruses and is likely to be the same. This is not the first corona virus ever.

Each coronavirus is different so you can't base off previous ones. We hope it will help, but there's no evidence as of yet that that's the case.

As mentioned, there are many countries in the southern hemisphere with outbreaks. Australia has many cases and have widespread measures and closures in place to try and stop the spread.

Just curious, do you read any news outlets aside from Fox news? They're the only ones who seem to have the same outlook as you, with many of their reporters dismissing what is going on.

So you're saying that healthy young adults deserve to live more than over 65's?

The callousness and disregard for life on this board is appalling.


I NEVER SAID THAT!!! All I said, in response to another post, is that coronavirus is NOT
the same as the Spanish Flu of 1918.

I don't read or listen to fox at all. It is too biased for my taste.

I think those that are in panic mode are those that are inclined to panic. Those that are not dont get phased.

Folks, the DEMOCRAT FAKE NEWS is exaggerating coronavirus to defeat Trump in 2020.
In 2009 when Obama was president, the Democrat Fake News COVERED UP the much more deadly H1n1 flu to protect Obama. Some FACTS:

1. 2009 H1N1 killed 70 TIMES AS MANY AS CORONAVIRUS: 284,000 - but it was HARDLY REPORTED in the News! (cuz Obama was president). The reason nobody remembers the 2009 H1N1 flu epidemic is that the FAKE NEWS did not promote any flu hysteria - like they are doing now. You are all being manipulated by propaganda!

2. NCAA did not ban fans
NBA did not cancel their season
We had no quarantines
We had no school closings

WHY? Because OBAMA WAS PRESIDENT.

All this Hysteria is POLITICAL PROPAGANDA to hurt Trump. The Fake News could not do it
with Russia Russia Russia or with the Impeachment Hoax, so this is their next plan. USA was just fine despite H1N1 flu, but Political Propaganda is hurting USA much more than the virus.

Those who are at HIGH RISK (elderly, sick) should reduce social contact. The rest of us should carry on. We will recover from the coronavirus flu like we do all other flu.

Stop. Just stop. Look around. This is not unique to the US.

Nothing has been this bad in our lifetime. At least not globally. This is serious. This could be on the level of the Spanish flu if it goes unconfined. Don't make light of it. It is not like the regular flu and that statement is ignorant. I am sick of hearing it from people who have no medical knowledge.

This is the dumbest thing I have ever read. H1N1 killed less than 12,000 people in the United States. Those statistics are incorrect. The fatality rate of coronavirus is much higher than H1N1. This is dangerous propaganda and if you don't have real facts and you don't fact check these viral memes/posts you look like a fool. Yes, the whole CDC, WHO, South Korea, Italy, China, etc are making up statistics to get rid of Trump? Tell that to the families that had people DIE of this virus. It's going to get worse and posts like this DO NOT HELP.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that swine flu infected nearly 61 million people in the United States and caused 12,469 deaths. Worldwide, up to 575,400 people died from pandemic swine flu.

Between your frequent use of ALL CAPS and Strategic Capitalization, it’s so easy to tell which posts are yours, #BestBubby.

Do you think that EMPHASIS and Designation of Proper Nouns (Fake News, Political Propaganda, etc.) makes your arguments more convincing?

I am all for the evolution of text-based communication, but your style is Very Distinctive.
