Got this new conspiracy theory I just made up about CoronaVirus!

Some say it comes from bats, but check this out:
"Corona" has the same letters as "Racoon".

So y'all better feel guilty, you racoon-eating monsters!

There are way tooooooo many conspiracies in this thread. 

My prediction

Realistically within the next 14 days I predict large sections of the US will opened back up and 30 days from tomorrow the entire country should be back up and running, including most casinos.  Business as usual with a few exceptions.  Many schools will remain closed until fall.

This pandemic is not the end of the world.  It's also not the worse pandemic in the past 100 years.  Not even close!
(Look back at Polio in the 1950s.) 

The death rate will fall to around .7%, mainly among the disgusting smokers and the elderly.

Yeeeaah, once secret ops are done things will open again.

Italy has a 9% death rate, do you believe this?

In Australia there have only been seven deaths in total. No one has died since last Thursday. This morning I heard we only have 30 people in intensive care. Sure, confirmed cases are going up, but every day that goes by without more deaths is significant (a more tangible measure than people in intensive care, which would be hard to get an accurate reading on given all the hysteria). They're developing treatments in Melbourne and Brisbane which have shown good results. I wonder if they're quiety distributing these to patients in intensive care?

If it continues this way, then within another couple of weeks it will be hard to convince people the crisis is real and present. I know we can't just go back to normal, but perhaps a slow wind back of the worst restrictions....

My prediction is the same for now. The real impact will be financial. I don't expect we'll understand the real impact until later.

At the end of 2020 Influenza will have killed exponentially more people than the Chinese Cornavirus.

Steve, I can't be bothered to reply to your sophistries any more. You certainly work hard at repetition and brainwashing, but if people carefully read the actual content (which is weak), they will see through it if they're intelligent enough.

Good luck.

Perhaps, but only if and because measures have been taken.

You may laugh, but a lot of conspiracy theories aren't much better.

I don't blame the governments for these extreme measures. Sure it ruins the economies, but I think people need to understand that this virus is extremely contagious. And despite of the hard effort to keep it under control, the number of cases grow exponentially. The first 100K cases took over a month, the last 100K only took 4 days. And the actual numbers are much higher than what the official charts are showing.

Without the quarantines and the lock downs, I suspect that there could be tens or even hundreds of millions infected by now. Let's say the mortality rate would be only 3% percent, which would be extremely optimistic considering that there would be no hospitals and doctors for that many patients, the death toll could be in the tens of millions.

I agree. And I don't believe the damage to the economy will be as bad as the doomsayers predict. It's not happening for the same reasons as the 2008 financial crisis; most economies are in good shape and this will be a temporary blip in the scheme of things as long as it's handled sensibly.

Actually, I work hard at explaining reality. Not everyone "gets it". Some even think its a brainwashing conspiracy.

if people carefully read the actual content (which is weak), they will see through it if they're intelligent enough

I think you'll find the majority of people here see you have the problem. And if there's any doubt, they can start with proof like documents from the Federal Reserve. By your "standards", that's "weak content". Right?

Nobody can win an argument with someone who's more concerned with appearing right, than the actual truth. But I'm not trying to win any argument. I've been trying to share what I've found.

Nevertheless, good luck to you too. I hope you eventually wake up.

I do not know what to make of this whole thing

I was laid off due to coronavirus.....only essential business can be open in NY

on one hand I have seen how bad it is...but on the other hand most people will only be asymptomatic or have mild symptoms, should we destroy the economy over that?

Now here in the United States socialism is being celebrated, we are all getting $2400 a month per household plus extended and increased unemployment benefits. A 2 trillion dollar government recovery bill. That is just kicking misery down the road. Our economy will fail

All the small businesses, restaurants, gyms, barber shop, etc etc are going to fold...America is failing right now

My message to China. STOP EATING F U C K I N G bats because SARS and many coronaviruses originate in bats because they have strong immune systems so the virus must mutate to attack it

Is this the governments of the world not letting a good crisis go to waste? use it to shut everything down and destroy the economy and personal wealth?

I dont want $2400 from the government and forced on unemployment because businesses are shut down, I do not want that.....
