Here's how to breathe easier.
Don: I wasn't worried about the Coronavirus or the number of patients. I couldn't understand, based on the data and numbers I saw why we were so panicked. I believe fully, that our intelligence arm started telling the government that something bad was coming and that China was attempting to hide their number of cases. I also believe that the government, in an attempt to maintain calm and prevent panic, did not react too swiftly and attempted thread the needle of responding to save lives but not responding too quickly so as to incite panic. I look at Italy, Spain, England, and the US and see the number of cases. The country of China has 1.4 billion people, yet fewer cases than countries with only 25-40 million people. Even the US as big as we are they should have more cases than us. There is no doubt in my mind that China hid their number of infected. There is no doubt in my mind that we are paying the price for their Socialist, Military government that has no accountability to anyone. This is why when we fought against the Russians in the cold war or attempted to stop the spread of communism in south east Asia we were absolutely within our rights to do so. When a government has no accountability to the people they are dangerous, when a world power has no accountability to the people they are able to destroy the world.
