    You could actually use this so improve the situation but all LWT does is Trump bashing. You dont need to continue that, we all know what trump is. But people are stupid and want to be reassured, that someone os even more stupid than they are. pathetic. Basicly every country except for Taiwan didnt react properly and now has massive problems, but hey appearently coronavirus is Trumps fault all alone. He is not the brain of your nation. Unfortunetly your Nation right now is made out of arrogant assholes and stupid idiots.

And its true, as of now we have 65 doctors dead. 5000 hospital workers infected... They have been making life and death choices. I've been in the house 21 days with walks to the balcony. We had an earthquake in our region a few days ago..sheesh. PLease everyone learn...stay home, wash your hands. Use and dispose of your kleenex well. Please if you go out wash the bottom of your shoes, then wash your hands. then its ok to hug the family. I can leave my jacket out..If I do leave the house im usually the only one on the street. I make sure.

    The thing of holding your breath is actually not stupid but it doesnt work line that. If you can't hold your breath for 10 seconds, you have a respiratory second that might come from coronavirus. BUT IT DOESNT WORK THE OTHER WAY AROUND !!!!

    <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="766">12:46</a> John Oliver, you're a damn idiot, and misinforming people that actually listen to your BS. Everyone should wear masks. Remember this virus has an incubation period of up to, in some cases, 21 days, so you won't know if you have the virus, or are being exposed to the virus until it's too late. John, stick to berating and belittling Donald Trump, and the Republican party, and stop giving expert advice on matters you know nothing about. You are leading people down the wrong road with your dangerous advise. LISTEN PEOPLE!!!!! EVERYBODY!!!! PLEEEEASE WEAR MASKS!!!!

    The FDA is too slow to approve chloroquine for Corona China patients. The FDA doesn't care that hundreds of Americans die from ChinaCorona every day. FDA's delay has killed 1,000 Americans. The FDA has successfully studied Chloroquine before China in February 2020. Although China has successfully treated chinacorona patients with Chloroquine, the FDA still deliberately delayed Chloroquine approval. American patients are dying. Do FDA / DNC use deaths for their politics?

    Rebecca Dragovits HOW TO CREATE A FAKE PANDEMIC 101: STEP 1 - Suppress people's already weakened immune systems by rolling out 5G wireless technology (which is used as a weapon in the military). Don't test it for safety, people will trust you if you say it's safe. Just tell them you can download porn really fast with it. STEP 2 - Declare that there is a new virus in an area of the world where 5G is already rolled out. If there is high pollution in the area, even better. Wuhan, China as a totally random example. Do it in winter when people's immune systems are already suppressed. STEP 3 - Start testing people for infection with an inaccurate test which no one even knows the accuracy of. Make sure it gives lots of false negatives and false positives for maximum uncertainty. Most people will just take the numbers of infected you present as fact. STEP 4 - Focus on mainly testing people who are really sick. Use the excuse of test shortages and cost (legitimate excuses) for why most healthy people aren't being tested. That way it will look like the case fatality rate is much higher than reality. But just to help make it look real, 5G will help increase the real case fatality rate. STEP 5 - Make sure the media goes all in on over hyping and fear mongering. Get most of the sellout alternative media on board too and make them hype it up even more. Focus on areas of the world with lots of old people and active 5G, like Northern Italy... And cruise ships. Convince people that where they live will end up just as bad and worse. Make people so paranoid that they overwhelm hospitals by coming in with the first sign of the sniffles. This zombie rush of paranoid idiots will make it appear that entire countries are getting sicker when mostly they are just getting increasingly paranoid. As a bonus, some people will become susceptible to sickness just by remaining in non-stop sleep deprived active adrenal paranoia. Even many practicing doctors and nurses may be fooled by the zombie onslaught, especially those in 5G areas. STEP 6 - After weeks of testing very few people, start testing far more people at an exponential rate. T his will create the illusion that the outbreak is now spreading rapidly, when really tons of people would have likely tested positive back before anyone even knew there was a virus. If you time it right, it will look like a growing serious threat rather than an always present nothing-burger. For added effect, report that a (coincidentally disproportionate) number of politicians and famous people are infected. This is when the masses start to grow increasingly concerned rather than just a tiny minority STEP 7 - Start counting people who die of the flu or other similar illnesses as dying of the pandemic virus to inflate the numbers. Symptoms are similar, so this isn't a stretch. Hundreds of thousands of people die each year from the flu, so this can make your fake pandemic look much more real by inflating your numbers. STEP 8 - Wait until the perception of the pandemic is scary enough that people are demanding to be mass quarantined and think it's a fantastic idea and the only solution. Then start a slow motion quarantine rollout. Get the people to lead you to quarantine them instead of forcing it on them, to avoid resistance. Make it look like it wasn't your plan all along, but rather the only reasonable course of action. STEP 9 (OPTION 1) - Keep things locked down until warmer sunnier weather decreases incidence of what is otherwise mostly normal symptoms of colds and flus (plus some 5G immune suppression). Declare that the quarantines were effective, and that without them, tens of millions would have died. Yay for big government! Yay for tyranny! STEP 9 (OPTION 2) - Keep society under permanent medical martial law. With numbers never going up but not disappearing fully either. Perfect excuse for permanent tyranny. Especially in the midst of economic collapse which you will have created by now with the fear mongering and quarantines. Travel will remain heavily controlled as long as you want. People will accept the tyranny because they are terrified of the outbreak getting out of control. STEP 10 - Eventually present a vaccine which most people take unquestioningly. After all the fear mongering and the quarantines, people will be completely paranoid and no longer thinking rationally (assuming they ever did at one time). This vaccine will mess with their immune system just like flu vaccines do. Ideally, add this to the yearly set of vaccinations. Get people to line up willingly to shorten their lifespans and make them more susceptible to a real pandemic. Don't worry, most people will not require evidence of efficacy nor safety. They still trust the government and media despite absolutely no reason to do so. Congratulations! You now have the tools to make your own fake pandemic. Kathy Sirois March 18, 2020

    This is a truly polarizing moment in history. I don't have a lot of friends but the ones I used to hang out with (pre corona) are totally disregarding this whole problem. My husband and I will have been home for 2 weeks on my bday on April 1st. We haven't left the house at all. I haven't returned to work. I don't know whats gotten into my friends but I'm starting to really dislike them for being so foolish and so arrogant and aggressive about it. I've been following the numbers, reading scientific research papers and watching all different news sources to get all ends of the story....I'm just shocked at the response from some...Also I live in Florida so our idiot governor is part of the problem and he's buddies with Trump. John! Im with you! Celtic FC might get it stripped from them and its almost 9IAR!!!!

    I live in Montana. I went to Walmart recently because I had to for some food and whatever I could get instead of toilet paper since my house is on its last roll but, while there, there was an older couple wearing medical masks and many many people wearing handkerchiefs instead. I really wanted to yell that it wasn't going to do anything but I figured that it wasn't worth it and if it makes them feel better, whatever. Thank you, Mr. Oliver, for these videos and everything you do for humanity. Laughter is important for everyone right now and you are giving important information.

    I have a good feeling that if a liberal president for example Obama was doing and saying all the things that Trump was saying about the Corona virus conservatives would have an uproar about it claiming that he doesn't care about Americans or America. Hypocrites
