  1. Trump is anti-science. He thinks he's smarter than scientists or doctors. Things he doesn't know about or believe in he calls a hoax. He's a very stupid person.

  2. Coronavirus outbreak in the States is the direct result of the bumbling idiot currently in the Whitehouse and his administration of parasites

  3. Why USA government is not importing corona virus test kits from china? why delay why are you waiting for wide spread virus in usa?

  4. When molecular biologists believe the world will end in ten years, they may start thinking about unleashing viruses with a 10% mortality rate

  5. I don't get the advise of not wearing a mask. I worked in a hospital, it was policy to wear masks when going in to a patients room who had an infectious disease. Who are these people saying don't wear a mask?

  6. How could something like this happens when it started over sea have anyone seen animal over in China with disease if human are having it what about the animal something is very very wrong

  7. Black, white, political or religious allegiances , entitlement, rich, poor doesn’t count now. It’s a message for all to wake up!!!!’ ?

  8. Federal government doesn't wnt true numbers coming out. They would rather see that the stock market is recovered.

  9. When does the movie and books about the Corona virus situation, spread, mistakes made stopping the spread, layed back response (guy off plane from Italy to U.S.A. said no medical person was at the airport to meet and test him) come out. It may take over 4 hours to tell the full story in a movie.

  10. Perspective: 2 deaths to Coronavirus.
    The most dangerous place to be in America is inside the womb – 862,000 abortions/yr.
    (Stats from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control)
    Death from heart disease: 647,457
    Cancer: 599,108
    Accidents (unintentional injuries): 169,936
    Chronic lower respiratory diseases: 160,201
    Stroke (cerebrovascular diseases): 146,383
    Alzheimer’s disease: 121,404
    Diabetes: 83,564
    Influenza and Pneumonia: 55,672
    Nephritis, nephrotic syndrome and nephrosis: 50,633
    Intentional self-harm (suicide): 47,173

  11. Population control. We're all gonna get this virus. Some will survive, some won't. This is a deep state agenda based out of China to control the population. Those who survive will see the new world order take place

  12. Why why is everyone worried about this virus when Trump just said fat when it gets warm or in April it will be gone???? HAHA

  13. this virus seems to be only like a common cold just highly contagious and only kills older people and those with health issues

  14. The test costs $3,500 and going to the doctor is expensive as well. People will be reluctant to go yo the doctor and get tested as a result. We need Medicare for All.

  15. Stop stop worrying about this virus because Trump said it will be over with in April when it gets warm!?!?!?!? HaHa. Maybe Trump will contract the virus virus and just died

  16. THANKS BROTHER,???%??.
    THESE DAMN?? ASS’S,ARE LYING BECAUSE THESE ALL THAY
    KNOW TO DO ? ? ? YOU??.?

  17. Call me a cynic, but I'd say there is a fair chance this guy knows a guy who may be able to get you a good deal on COV19 test kits… just saying.

  18. Everyone , stay home for three weeks and maybe this virus could die off. Let's be proactive and do what we can do. Let's not wait for them to tell us what to do.

  19. 5,000,000 people annually get the regular flu and 650,000 die worldwide every year. You can google this. Corona V is a blimp on the radar compared to these numbers… So what are they up to? We are being led down a dark road by the ear boys and girls. The media along with governments around the world are prepping us for something big and I don't think we are going to have to wait long to find out what it is… Is this another red flag? Where are they taking us this time?

  20. i thought the virus was just a fear-mongering scheme by the democratic party and the media? It is a serious disease? That is not what Trump said?? The virus was just to tank the stock market!

    j/k

  21. Pfffft. There are 340,000,000 people who live in the United States and just 5 people died who had the Coronavirus? More people were killed by hitting deer last week. And notice, they don't say they were killed by the Coronavirus. They died "with" and "after contracting" Coronavirus. At least a few were patients with other ailments including Pneumonia . These people are nothing more than fear-mongers.

  22. News and media are crazy they just want people to panic, I dislike republicans so much but they are handling it better than democrats who are in state of panic. Literally US is the lowest in numbers around the world. Republicans looking for solutions and try to keep people calm. Which what should happen from the media and the news but they make a living for scaring people off.

  23. The flu outbreak of 1918 killed an estimated 20 million to 50 million victims, including some 675,000 Americans.

  24. : SECRET BEHIND THE CORONAVIRUS LEAKED. """""""'''"'""''''"""""''"" I am a senior Chinese military intelligence officer and I know the truth about the coronavirus outbreak. It is far worse than the media are telling you. I am a Chinese citizen in Wuhan who occupies — or perhaps occupied — a high-ranking position in military intelligence. I am also a member of the Chinese Communist Party. As a senior official near the top of the Party, I have access to a great deal of classified information and I have been involved in many top secret government projects. I have a doctorate from a leading university in a western country, which is why I am able to write my account in English. I have information that I believe could lead to the overthrow of my government. It is also relevant to billions of people outside of China, all of whom are now in existential peril. It will not surprise you to hear that if my identity were to be revealed, my life would be in grave danger, as would those of my wife and son. I ask you to respect the fact that I have stripped out of this account all facts that would make it easy to identify me. By now you will be familiar with the recent outbreak of 2019-nCoV, also known as NCP, or simply "coronavirus". You will have heard that it originated in Wuhan, an industrial city in China, and that it came from an animal — most likely a bat or a pangolin — that was sold in a wild animal market. You will have been told that it is an influenza-like illness that can in severe cases cause pneumonia, respiratory failure and death. Finally, you may have heard that although the disease is highly infectious, it is dangerous only to the elderly or to those who have a compromised immune system. The official lethality rate is approximately 2% or so. All of that is a bunch of lies concocted by the Chinese state with the tacit support of the U.S. deep state and its friends in the European Union, Russia and Australia, and spread by the docile media in all of those countries. Let me start by telling you that the world does not operate the way you think it does. Although countries like the US and China vie for global dominance, that competition is restricted to certain limited areas. In most ways, the two countries are more interested in cooperation so that they can stop other competing countries from gaining more power. They also have a shared interest in keeping real power out of the hands of their "ordinary" citizens. To this end, they have many different mechanisms by which they control the overwhelming majority of their media outlets. The Americans in particular have perfected the art of creating made-up "divisions" between their two main parties which are designed to hide the fact that both serve the same masters. These same nations also posses technology that is far more advanced than you can imagine and which is kept carefully hidden from public view. This includes advanced artificial intelligence capable of undermining and deciding any election in the world; biological and chemical agents that can manipulate and control the thinking patterns and behaviours of citizens to terrifying degrees; highly sophisticated manipulation techniques using hypnotic practices entirely unknown to the public; and other things that I will not go into now. My point is that the great nations do not compete so much as work together. Their principal goal is to shield the true workings of the world from the "uninitiated" public. Just to give you one example, there aren’t actually any nuclear weapons anywhere in the world. The U.S. and the Soviet Union scrapped them all in the 1970s, as did their client states. Everyone realised that those weapons could not be used without destroying the whole world, so there was no need for them; but by pretending that they still had them, the big players were able to keep the non-nuclear powers in line. Let me return to the virus. Last year, large-scale anti-government protests erupted in Hong Kong.

  25. First the test cost thousands of dollars if available…if u test positive, u gonna be quarantined and xray'ed, which cost more, and if u end up in the icu, u gonna be paying big time, with or without insurance…and where I work, not only is there no health insurance, there is no paid sick leave….I'd take my chances

  26. Where is the testing… for F ? sake‼️‼️♥️‼️✌??? stop with the underlying conditions most people have those….‼️‼️‼️‼️

  27. THE SOLUTION OR MEDICINE TO THIS CORONA VIRUS..IS PRAYER…PRAY GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART..WITH ALL YOUR MINDS..WITH ALL YOUR STRENGHT.. AND WITH ALL YOUR SOULS..NOW IS THE TIME TO PREPARE FOR THE SECOND COMING OF JESUS CHRIST…REMEMBER HE IS OUR LORD AND SAVIOUR..THE BREAD OF LIFE AND THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD..ALPHA AND OMEGA…..

  28. Not a big deal to get the persons sex wrong. We shouldn’t assume their gender. But testing kits are probably made in China and Clinton, Bush and Obama should have fixed this. 80% of our drugs are made in China.

  29. THE SCAREMONGERS ARE PUSHING FEAR, PANIC, AND PROPAGANDA. IF THEY WANT TO BITCH ABOUT A REAL "CRISIS," THEN THEY SHOULD MENTION THE FACT THAT EVEN THOUGH THE COVID-19 IS SCARY, INFLUENZA IS DEADLIER AND MORE WIDESPREAD. ACTUALLY, THE CDC HAS ESTIMATED THAT AT LEAST 14,000+ PLUS HAVE ALREADY DIED THIS FLU SEASON (2019-2020.)

    THE COVID-19 IS BEING PUSHED AS A "SUPER VIRUS" THAT ACTUALLY HAS AN ULTERIOR MOTIVE.

  30. Washington state should check if anyone coming back from Iran, China, Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia.

    Annual Flu deaths are 300,000. Are we trying hard to build a case for mega bucks corona vaccine? Most, 80-85%, of those with corona. have miild cases and. recover.

    https://youtu.be/HIWuAtinhsU

  32. If we were overrun with cases; hospitals being overrun by extremely sick individuals – we can look at this as a "Wuhan scenario" . What we have in the US is NOT a "Wuhan scenario". What you all need to do is go back to your plushie dolls, and stress relief squishy balls and just relax. I am sure if there was a wildly raging problem in any of our cities; it would get noticed by our health officials and then the CDC.. We are after all plugged in, and can see the news as it happens.. Its not like we're waiting for tomorrow's paper to be printed anymore.

  33. Wow- God Bless you America. Side note: The Chinese were heavily criticised and discriminated by the world, but at least they did something about this virus. So far South Korea is the best example to follow- with their methods and transparency regarding this outbreak. If/when it happens in SA, I hope it can be handled like SK. God's speed.

  34. B- really? When lives are at risk the standards need to be much higher. This administration's response continues to be inadequate. One isn't awarded a B- for trying. F is for failure to achieve.

  35. Was it Washington Govoner who said we welcome every one just few years ago ? Well you've been made by China !

  36. Oh yeah, cnn has a chinese guy on preaching to Americans after they get this BS started.
    cnn is straight trash and doesn't care for the American Citizens.
    They just want to tear down our Country any way they can any time they can.
    Better elect Trump if you want a safe place to live, food on your table, jobs to go to, money in your pocket to do for yourselves and family, safe borders, and someone in office that loves his Country.
    What do you think would be going on if Joe Biden, Bernie, Hillary, or Bloomberg were in office? You would be hungry and out of food and wishing they hadn't come and taken your protection.
    The democrats will have this Country looking worse than China and you eating rats and bark off trees to stay alive.
    Trump 2020

  37. ★★Why is GLOBAL PANIC created in Share Markets due to some deaths among CoronaVirus patients? RECESSION is being caused deliberately by those with massive RESERVE FUNDS in CASH. After making prices crash drastically, conspirators will use their CASH RESERVES for buying assets & properties at throwaway prices. Assets & properties can be sold later at HUGE PROFITS when prices start rising fast during the BOOM period that follows RECESSION.

  38. It is very encouraging to know we have 15 thousand test kits for our almost 400 million population! You go, Mr Pence!!

  39. Trump stripped the CDC HHS EPA of $$ and expert epidemic doctors. TO GIVE THE RICH TAX BREAKS, ALL BIG BUSINESS PAY NO FED TAX. NOW WE HAVE NO TESTS NO DOCTORS BECAUSE OF THE ORANGE IDIOT TRUMP.

    THEN HE GAS LIGHTS EVERYBODY Saying the Democrats were doing this as a hoax and hoping people died and all this stuff coming out of Trump Junior and all of trumps cohorts I mean this is some sick stuff this guy we call the president is one sick son of a bitch

  40. CDC Fucked up. British HAS MADE a WONDERFUL TEST and been using it 2 Months.
    Why don't USA CDC just Borrow Great Briton's Patented TEST?BECAUSE GREED. CDC wnts to OWN THE TEST and NOT LET IT BE GIVEN FREE!ONLY PEOPLE IN AMERICA WHO CAN PAY $$$$ WILL GET LIFE SAVING MEDS.

  41. The CDC along with WHO are dragging their feet…this virus has to have been around for more than at least 2 months or more…it's taking too long for testing ….& testing is totally out of reach for the poor & uninsured…

  42. So let me get this straight, Trump is doing a good job, hindsight is 20/20, and we're still in the middle of this. Thank you for not going negative or political about this. We're all in this together. ????✝️?

  43. https://www.independent.ie/world-news/north-america/donald-trump-faces-his-chernobyl-by-denying-threat-of-coronavirus-38998455.html This is an Irish Newspaper. Not the democrates, or the liberal media. Trump's gutting of the CDC for silly projects like the wall, and other pointless things, helped this virus spread.

  44. I'm not sure what the guest speaker meant when he kept saying "Korea." There is South Korea and there is North Korea. Unless you think they are both one and the same in every way.

  45. Coronavirus was weaponized by Trump and the Russians to kill the poor and the underprivileged. It is clear now more than ever that coronavirus is a biological weapon that Trump allowed to reach the US to prey on high population density areas where people are vulnerable, most likely to kill blacks and low income voters. I wonder what Putin had to do with this. Clearly this states that they are working together

  46. Will you please explain that to that damn,dumb,crazy, asshole that call his dumb worst presendent sitting on his lazy ass in the w.h.

  47. This is bad, oh yeh everyone watching this thinks it’s trumps fault ??‍♂️ , does it really matter it came from China remember. I agree with this doctor 100%. Test test test

  48. Dr. Jeff Duchin will NOT report that Biden / Obama let 1,000 (one thousand) Americans DIE… before acting on the H1N1 Virus… Trump acted before 1 died.

  49. I've always thought avoiding humans was a good idea so staying away from them and not getting infected will be easy for me.

  50. Does anyone think it odd that the coronavirus was introduced right after the human rights movement in China?

  51. The only reason why the number of cases are unknown it is because we have such an expensive healthcare that is not affordable by half the US. People, of course, won’t go to the hospitals to get checked out by a doctor since all they can afford is over the counter remedies for flu like symptoms. Come on like how much will that testing will cost that patient knowing the fact that probably they have no health insurance or an insurance with a catastrophic deductibles will lead to bankruptcy and yet they won’t cover everything after those deductibles met. US is more vulnerable than most countries and we still yet to act on this. We charge $300 for a bandaid in an emergency room or facilities god knows how much will be charged to your insurance company for that testing lol

  52. I had an experience today that gave me some small amount of clarity about this situation. I’m a big fan of citizen science, which several years ago introduced a “game” called Fitbit that lets everybody have some small contribution to situations like this. The game teaches people the basics of protein folding. It requires a minimal amount of knowledge of organic and biochemistry, which can serve the player attempting to understand how tertiary structures of large molecules are discerned. Anyway the game has a level that lets players assist labs working on how these protein structures allow viruses access to cells in the respiratory system. At this point these labs are trying to get some knowledge of how these novel proteins work. This suggested that understanding how these proteins signal to the cell that it’s ok to accept genetic material from the virus. If this is our current level of understanding this virus, we clearly have a long way to go to decide which antivirals will work in inhibiting the proliferation of this coronavirus. It also suggests that we are in the early stages of understanding this virus and creating an effective vaccine to control its spread in human populations. It’s imperative that government officials understand that the CDC, public health officials, in each state should be informing government agencies on how these agencies need to present to the citizens of this country,that the way that information reaches the public should come from public health officials rather than government officials have proceeded thus far. It’s imperative that state health departments feel empowered to relay information to federal agencies like the CDC, and that information reaches the public as health officials dictate, not the other way around. Let these people do their job with minimal bureaucratic interference and allow them to share information freely. This would seem to be the best path to go forward, not repeating the same sort of folly that has been the kind of thing that happened in countries like China. Allowing the executive branch to create policy without consultation with the scientists working in the government. This is a matter of biology, not conspiracy. The two are mutually exclusive. Let the scientist do their job unfettered and we might avoid some of the economic ugliness that has transpired so far. That’s what everybody wants.

  53. I heard this video because I trust the John Hopkins brand, but I must say I was very disappointed. Until a few days ago the US had performed only about 500 tests when South Corea with seven times smaller population had performed 90.000 tests. (Here is my source https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u7qS-CjZfYY&t=335s ) In short, during the initial and most critical phase of the epidemic, the US is driving blind. Perhaps those who worked with the Global Health Security Index were well-meaning but their finding that the US is the world's best prepared country better for a pandemic has been proved wrong by reality, proving that the index suffers from a major flaw. Thus to publicize the GHSI is not only unscientific but misinformation.

    Also I think it is useless to repeat "no reason to panic" again and again. Everybody already knows that panic can exacerbate the problem, but the way to avoid a panic is to inform people well and to prepare well, something that the US is not doing. You are scientists, your duty is with the truth.
