    Shame on you Ron Paul for comparing COVID-19 to the flu.
    Are you unaware of the under reporting of deaths in China? Do you realize that if you add in the un-confirmed (but probable cases) that the total dead is more than the officially reported recovered? Can you do the math? Do you understand that the theory that the virus only kills 2% of those infected is based on the assumption that thousands are getting a light from of the virus and are counted in calculating the 2% kill rate? Do you understand that the estimate of ‘virus-light cases’ is based on a guess not facts? Are you unaware that the virus can spread for over 3 weeks while the infected shows no symptoms? Are you unaware that this virus stays in the body after symptoms go away and that the symptoms can return? Are you unaware that China fails to reveal the numbers of dead that were reported as suspected cases as compared to the number of confirmed cases (especially in Dec. 2019)? Do you really believe that this hellish virus will not completely collapse the world economy? Do you understand that the virus can live on surfaces for 20 to 30 days. Can you imagine the number of people that will be infected just from picking up their mail? Can you imagine the chaos that will occur when the doubling of infections reaches it’s climax and the implications of an entire country having a majority of their population all sick at the same time and then another county peaking after China and so forth? Do you think the world economy will be okay under that scenario? Do you really believe that some poor Arab that had his family slaughtered by a white phosphorus U.S. bomb will forgive America for their actions? Do you think it might be probable that some saddened Arab might take revenge by infecting himself and sneaking across the border to do who knows what? This virus will impact the world like no other in modern history. Wake up or shut up Ron ….PLEASE!
    Don’t be stupid Ron. Trump has to try to keep the populous calm even though he knows how bad things are. You on the other hand don’t seem to have the mental capacity to put 2 and 2 together.

    Paul,

    I totally understand your frustration with Dr. Paul’s comments. However, I’m trying to present my website visitors with both sides of the story as best I can. I leave it up to you all to decide what to believe. I do find it interesting, however, that many of the “gurus” I post onto this site are at odds with one another over this coronavirus.

    Personally, I’ve already finished my preparations for a potential supply chain impact. I’ve bought food, medicine and other supplies just in case things get bad in the USA. I suggest you do the same. If the virus ends up being a nonevent wherever you live, no harm done. If things do get dicey, however, you’ll be prepared.

    We have a farm that produces plenty of food a day in a remote tropical location. Plenty of food, medicine and toilet paper. I’m guessing were more ready than 99.9% of U.S. citizens. Already in Quarantine mode.
    good luck friend.

    We’re all going to need it.
