      1. But do you have anything that is going to substantially affect the current Wuhan Corona virus trend that has seen hospitalization (you know the serious stuff) flat-lined since March ???

        If not- then all you are doing is fear-mongering… why would you do that ? What service does that provide your readers or viewers ?? I’m willing to bet- not a damn thing !

        1. you can 1,000 times a day throw out the term “fear mongering” and that doesn’t make it so. We are thanked every day by many for providing the FACTS. All you do is provide your opinion over and over and over, the same old labels and unfounded criticism.

          1. “None in C.O.”… None without “underlying conditions” !

            In short- nobody is dying by the Wuhan Corona Virus alone… which nullifies all the claims that the virus alone has killed anyone !

            Isn’t that the real news here ?

        2. Again folks, it’s been proven that viruses have been around longer than any country has been in existence… Don’t be fooled by racist labels and hidden agenda’s during this pandemic. Ask your doctor if u have any questions about this or any other illness out there. #askyourdoc and get the facts! 😉

  1. tiny numbers=large percentages. Besides what possible relevant info could WW be reporting east of the cascades? If they really want to help they can donate the massive amount of wasted paper they generate from the old unread issues left in hotel lobbies, dairy-marts, etc that have to be collected and replaced weekly as TP! Or go 100% online!

  2. the fear of information is palpable – the belief in evil forces inflating numbers, and all manner of commie motivations is embarrassing – lot of effort being put into not knowing and/or spreading confusion – guess that emo manipulation strategy is working – really discouraging that there are so many willing participants in their own degrading unhealthy relationships
