The media has shifted their focus from trying to get blacks to riot everywhere back to promoting the virus hysteria. They have been pushing alarming headlines talking about a “surge” in coronavirus cases.
This “surge” is only because there has been an increase in tests which Donald Trump has pointed out.
Coronavirus deaths are way down. Mortality rate is one of the lowest in the World. Our Economy is roaring back and will NOT be shut down. “Embers” or flare ups will be put out, as necessary!

The death numbers associated with the coronavirus have been falling rapidly.
Please, please, PLEASE stop giving us coronavirus *cases*, media. With most *cases* asymptomatic, that datum is ridiculously irrelevant.

Coronavirus deaths have dropped 90% since late April. Why is almost everyone in the media ignoring this fact? Because it doesn't fit the fear porn narrative. https://t.co/Wf0CLNXZSW

We must also consider that these death numbers are wildly inflated. They are counting all sorts of people who did not die from the coronavirus and died from something else entirely. There are even deaths counted based on guesses and not based on any sort of test.
But because of this idiotic media-driven panic, politicians are pushing mandatory mask requirements and/or stalling the reopening of state economies.
The mandatory mask requirements are particularly stupid considering that at the start of this lunacy, the government was saying that masks would not prevent the spread. Even Anthony Fauci was saying this. And at this point the virus is pretty much everywhere so mandatory mask requirements is going to have little if any impact on the ultimate outcome.
Remember the early recommendation on #coronavirus was that face masks were only required by health care workers.
Now #AnthonyFauci says masks are not “100% protective. However, they certainly are better than not wearing a mask"
Can anyone believe them?https://t.co/j3QVJ0Dt8Z

It’s utterly insane. We have people in power who have lost the ability to think and reason. Either that or they are just too cowardly to state obvious facts.
An increase in positive test cases coupled with a lower death toll is good news and shows once again that the coronavirus is no more dangerous than the flu. But instead, all we get is the media driving everyone into a hysteria. These people promoting this madness should be arrested and put in prison. What they are doing is shouting “fire” in a room but on a much broader scale.
