As the number of coronavirus cases in the United States increase, the media has helped to create a sense of panic which may be serving as a left-wing distraction. While no one disputes that COVID-19 can have deadly effects on certain members of the population, some believe that the coronavirus has been hijacked by liberal politicians to discredit the success of President Donald J. Trump.
According to Johns Hopkins University the global mortality rate of COVID-19 is low when compared to other epidemics. One can tell by looking at the data that those who recover from the virus outnumber those who succumb by 10-1.
Why, then, is so much media attention being given to the mortality rate and spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus? Some allege that media bias has been used to cast a negative light on the Trump administration. Now, world financial markets are tumbling as a result of worldwide panic.
Few of the facts like those provided by Johns Hopkins, one of the most respected medical institutions in the United States, are being reported. Many actions that have been taken by President Trump are also missing from media coverage. The President was quick to respond by naming Vice President Mike Pence to lead a coronavirus task force. The President also announced economic stimulus measures to help businesses that are being hurt by the effect of the virus on the markets.
President Trump has spearheaded a resurgence of the US economy during his time in office. The stock market has posted record highs. All the while, liberal democrats have sought to distract voters from the country's economic success. First it was the Russia hoax. Next came an impeachment proceeding that cost the American taxpayers millions. The coronavirus seems to be the latest in a long line of distractions from liberal politicians who are facing an uphill climb to defeat Trump in 2020.
There is reason to be concerned about the coronavirus. Everyone should take the proper precautions, and those that have been exposed to the illness should consider a self-quarantine. These measures are common sense in the wake of a virus species that is not new. Coronaviruses have been around for many years. This particular strain is new, and there is not enough information at present to make a true determination of its seriousness.
Individuals should avoid panic and monitor information sources like the Centers for Disease Control to get accurate information.
