    The new Corona virus, should we worry?

    Looking at the number of daily new cases in Minnesota, it looks very flat for quite a few days. Not only are we not going up exponentially, we are not even going up linearly. Guess we’re all doing a good job. One message to Gov. Walz: allow us on the golf courses!

    The new Corona virus, should we worry?

    He and many folks made the mistake of listening to China’s official statements and to the WHO, who sadly have been exposed as a compromised organization. Through mid January they stuck to the claim that this virus was difficult to spread person to person. Apparently there was also plenty of...

    The new Corona virus, should we worry?

    I don’t believe newsrooms at CNN, CBS, NBC, ABC and MSNBC are necessarily nefarious. They just live in group think in a progressive bubble (similar to most of our universities). They talk about their love of diversity, but that diversity is basically only in regards to skin color, not in...

    The new Corona virus, should we worry?

    Walter Cronkite was an example of an old school liberal. Most of today’s mainstream media is leftist/progressive. There’s a big difference. Editors and writers drive the bias in the news, the corporate big wigs aren’t in the newsrooms micromanaging. The typical myth is large corporations are...

    I doubt many subscribe to FT. If they don’t have the anti-body tests yet, how are they making these estimates?

    No one is thinking about doing this. Even Trump has been following the advice of the task force.

    The new Corona virus, should we worry?

    Agree, this would be the case worldwide. The problem is we can’t know until they develop the anti-body test that we can do enough random sampling to determine how many folks have had the virus and recovered. As much as I wish the Imperial College‘s numbers were true, it is nothing more than an...

    The new Corona virus, should we worry?

    So, here’s the important distinction: is the Imperial College saying that the UK government is lying about their numbers? Or, are they saying that more people have contracted the virus than we know about? I believe the latter. If their assumption is correct, that’s actually good news. That would...

    The new Corona virus, should we worry?

    This is pretty amazing, and they will provide a great example of an alternative approach to this. Assuming they stick with it.

    The new Corona virus, should we worry?

    Agree with your assumption that more of China has seen a spread of the virus. But, why would you doubt 50k in deaths?

    The new Corona virus, should we worry?

    Generally, folks have distrust in information coming from communist governments. These nations do not have a free press, rather they have state controlled media.

    Not so sure most do. Granted this is just one poll: https://news.gallup.com/poll/267047/americans-trust-mass-media-edges-down.aspx

    A great movie from 1970 is Tora! Tora! Tora! This is before CGI:

    The new Corona virus, should we worry?

    Agree. China is being exposed as other country’s numbers come in. The current speculation of 42k-46k deaths seems quite plausible. Folks wonder why China would hide their true numbers. If they had told us the real numbers, it would have outraged countries even more than they are now regarding...

    The new Corona virus, should we worry?

    I actually have heard this concern from a few mental health experts. In the last couple weeks.
