  5. Stay at home. Focus on strengthen your immune system. Open your Bible, and trust in the Lord Jesus Christ. 1.) Admit that you are a sinner. 2.)Believe in your heart that Jesus Christ died on the cross for your sins. 3.) CHOOSE TO FOLLOW CHRIST 🙏💞💖

  6. I am 75 and I would be willing to die for the good of my country and fellow US citizens.. I could be from wartime actions or peacetime, an act of war or risking my health/life to save our economy and way of life.. I would like to take Pelosi and her ilk with me as a sacrifice for the good of the USA..

  7. The curve is practically going straight up on their graph now….. let's end this, its completely overblown. WTF. Maybe this is the Earth's way of telling us to slow down?

  8. Trump fired the people that Obama hired on that could have prevented this outbreak from getting as bad as it is right now.

  9. You guys are liars this is martial law there are people in state everywhere and people traveling on purpose from state to state county to county hospital in the hospital and what you're showing on the news does not coincide with the reports that we're getting and we've got pictures and everything video nurses talking saying that nothing's going on you know exactly what this is about and you guys are the real criminals sitting there lying to the American people, Don't think for one second that the American people won't blame you and this s*** goes down this is about crashing our economy why don't you report on event 201? Why don't you report on Bill Gates ? why don't you report about the things that happened in Africa after Bill Gates was there 2000 children died within 3 days of those vaccines how come you don't report that ? It's cuz you're owned and everybody knows it but on an individual level the fact that you would involve yourself in it says you're a s*** human and what goes around comes around people are going to blame you when this s*** goes down because you knew when you did it all for money shame on you You're the real enemies of the United States of America, this is not a free press anymore thankfully there's a lot of alternative media that's reporting what's really going on and I know that the American people don't trust the news anymore and thank God for that,

  10. The president's wanting to get everything back up and running by Easter do you think it has anything to do with Trump entertainment enterprises he owns four of the largest hotels in the United States maybe it's his bottom line he's worried about not the American people.

  11. so, Donald, whatever happened to making America great again? i suppose the state of NY is your greatest enemy in the next election. smart move killing off all the old people living there.

  12. Attention ,the.stimulus package just past…Whew…we couldn't wait much.lomger.Thanks to Comgresses Bi-partisain.work .

  13. Mother Nature striking back people, she is saying” there is too many of you killing me!! There, this is what I must do for you fools to change your ways, yes, many will die, but it is for the best, stop messing with me or else!!!

  14. Wow, the UK just got the virus and they already have 422 deaths, and the US government wants to lie to us and make us believe that we will go back to normal on easter?! They want us to believe that we've had it here for a few weeks now and we only have a few hundred more deaths than the UK?! Wake up people our government is lying to us! most of the other countries death tolls are at 4% but the US media wants us to believe that we dies less to this virus and we're only at a 1% death toll? Psh, are we great again yet?

  15. One thing I can say is a lot of people always stood way too close to one another way before this. Wow this is crazy…. If you really think about it . Some people were even disrespectfully close, like back up some your in my bubble and envading my personal space!!! Hopefully people practice this wayyyyy after. God bless America!!!!

  16. Trump should be impatient. These annoying People are way too comfortable lying to the President, William Barr, the Senators, the Board Of Congress, the Governors, and Everyone Else that will listen to their irritating, messy behinds. He should be very impatient. This is nothing more than a waste of time for the People who are being allowed to mistreat our Families and lie on us who take good care of our Kids until they are on their feet to be in our lives and try to control us. The President should not give the Aggressors more time. They are getting innocent People killed. The local Court, Police, and the Sheriff continue to not arrest the People at my home but are talking about quarantine. If they are serious about quarantine. I have had precedent over Everyone illegally living at my home and proved these facts way past statue. These People are supposed to be arrested or taken to a shelter. No President, William Barr, Board Of Congress, and any other top Officials should keep making it appear that these messy People are my problem and keep them in my life as if they were at my home and I was not legally at my home. I was the one at my home until the Government without any evidence or probable cause came and illegally locked my door. There is not any humor in that kind of crime. The Judges should not keep lying on me like I need to be restrained because I am due money and the People burglarized my home with the assistance of a Sheriff. There should not continue to be more aid for People who should be in jail. The President needs to rush this matter along and enforce William Barr to make the local Police, Sheriff, and the Prosecutors in Oakland do their job. Other People are being prevented from work while Aggressors are being housed and our lives are placed in danger for these envious People who we do not even want to be around. It is obvious who has been lying and causing more viruses around the Country. There is not any exaggetations that these People are going to die that way. They are of age and are proud to keep lying on People and think that People should fear them. There is not any way that they should continue to be receiving money from any jobs while our incomes are being held. They are not doing their jobs. They are trying to intimidate innocent People. Especially many of the Oakland Dispatchers and the Government in Oakland. They are screwed up psychologically and need immediate quarantine to not affect the good Government. These People are trying to stop us from contacting them when they have aided People in our homes and have not paid us. That is not going to happen until justice is served. The Public know when the Court, Sheriff, and the Police aid in committing burglary, fraud, and perjury, we have already saw a Judge and Attorneys who confirmed these crimes. We are going to contact them until their bosses enforce the Law. We are not going to die and give up our lives for corrupted People. The President need to make the necessary quarantine with the ones involved so that our lives do not continue to be in jeopardy. The ones who think that the Public is stupid knows why People were contacting the Government everyday. The Government came to our home illegally and the Judge keeps holding our orders to remove these People out of our lives. We are going to contact them everyday. We want them out of our home and our money like the Law states. We supposed to contact them everyday until that happens. The Government should have never came to our home illegally. The Government would not be getting contacted everyday. Do their jobs legally to end being contacted everyday. Or No One, especially me, is listening until that happens. I am contacting the Government everyday for coming to my home illegally and not fixing their problem. This is not my problem.

  17. As a physician this woman must really really hate herself. My physician, also a woman speaks honestly and bluntly to me and I am so grateful that she does.

  18. This isn't a conspiracy anymore; The New World Order is taking over right in front of us. This disease is a deception – Don't fall for it.

    Find God and Jesus, Save your souls, don't fall for the satanic elite.

  19. Although many of the adults are already staying home 24/7, there are many teenagers under 18 being irresponsible, partying, not social distancing and spreading the covid-19 much faster. Many teenagers are not old enough to make the right choices to stay safe from catching covid-19, and those wrong choices by teens affects the rest of americans. So, we do need the usa nation to shut down, as soon as possible. The economy going down for a while, is unavoidable for a pandemic. Unless there is a proven cure or proven treatment within 2 weeks, trumps plan for economy to start picking up alittle, is not going to work. The only thing trump can do, is to minimize how long the economy stays down, is to shut the nation down as soon as possible. The longer he waits to shut down the nation, the even longer it will take the economy to start picking back up and the more covid-19 cases will pile up and even more lives that get lost in the process. People that are staying home, are not stupid. They are real human beings. People are not going to leave their home, just to save the economy. The economy going down will cause deflation. Which means prices will be lowered on many items. That means lower prices for customers. Not that it will really matter since most customers aren't going to leave their home anyways. But after the pandemic is official over, the low prices will be sticking around for a while. Deflation doesn't really hurt most of your average working Americans anyways. Thats more purchasing power for your dollar. Theres not a incentive for people to leave their home. Mainly the rich company corporation business would mainly benefit if everyone just ignored the pandemic and everyone just returned to shopping alot. Deflation is not of any concern to most of the citizens that are just working for someone else.

  20. How can the UK and America have such idiots running the country is beyond me!!!😟😟😤😤😤😒😒😒🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️

  21. I'm curious didn't you guys hear him say that we shouldn't touch the money because he could spread a virus lol does that not strike you as odd ? secondly I would like to see all the death certificates and obituaries of all these people that have supposedly died from this coated 19 Even with their numbers did you know that 80,000 or more people die from the flu last year they never said a word , this is how frustrating

  22. Our government and media thinks people do not care that's why they are not following lockdown orders. Well, they do care. Their mindset is "I am going to work, where I am highly likely to get infected, I might as well keep living my life normally."

  23. This is the real problem,this anchor is making it sound worse than it is. Why not report its the end of the world??? Report the news, DONT insert your opinions!!!

  24. Dr. Birx is not credible. She keeps talking about data and sounds like a politician and not a person in the medical field.

  25. Ah, so instead of it being the worst in April, now it's going to be the worst in June, since he's going to open everything back up in April in the middle of everything. I don't see why businesses have to take a hit, if you put everything on pause like bills and rent.

  26. “The entire fabric of the germ theory of disease rests upon assumptions which not only have not been proved, but which are incapable of proof, and many of them can be proved to be the reverse of truth. The basic one of the unproven assumptions, wholly due to Pasteur, is the hypothesis that all the so-called infections and contagious disorder are caused by germs.” – M.L. Leverson, M.D

    “Any kind of flu is the same thing. When the climate and temperature are right, certain tissues will cleanse. They may have a 7-years cycle. They may have a 6-months cycle. It depends upon the tissue and how contaminated it is. If certain tissue needs to cleanse every two years, our bodies will create, if waste tissue is too toxic for mircrobes, our bodies will create a solvent (a virus) that fractionates and cleanses that particular tissue every two years, every 6 months, every 3 months, every 7 years, every 12 years, depending upon that tissue and how contaminated it is. The myth that herpes is contagious is pharmaceutical industry fiction to scare you into taking medication.” – Aajonus Vonderplanitz

    What’s happening is, like I said, we have colds, which are mainly bacterial, which go feed on toxic tissue that’s been damaged – we don’t eat well enough, we don’t eat all raw and therefore we accumulate toxicity. So bacteria have to come in and eat that waste product because we can’t keep up with all the waste. OK. So that’s what a cold is. Flu is mainly viral. Some bacteria may be active during flu. Some areas of our bodies may not be so contaminated that bacteria – the natural way that we cleanse with bacteria when we’re overloaded with toxicity or waste products, will help us. But when we are so toxic that the bacteria are poisoned by the tissue, from chemical inundation, then we have to make solvents. Each cell makes a solvent. Each cell makes a soap to help clean itself. And it’s a union. It’s like a factory. All the particular cells get together and say, “Let’s make this to help clean ourselves.” So they make enzymes which we will call soap to do that. So there’s nothing dormant about it. It’s just that when the accumulation of industrially contaminated waste is so great and you can’t use microbes then the cells make solvents, that is, viruses we call flu.”- Aajonus Vonderplanitz

    “Three criteria are, according to the scientific method needed to properly identify a virus. It must be isolated from a host cell. As of 2016 this has never been accomplished in humans. It must be photographed and it’s diameter measured. As of 2016 this has never been accomplished in humans. It must be biochemically characterized. As of 2016 this has never been accomplished in humans. This has never been done with any virus (herpes, hepatitis, h1n1, bird flu, swine flu, influenza, polio, measles) let alone HIV, HPV, SARS, Zika or Ebola.”- Viruses

  27. I'm Italian and the biggesy problem is not the mortality if someone is cured (which is still a huge problem) , is that with so many cases the hospitals are full and they can't even cure you. In the most infected parts of the country the ambulances can even take hours to visit who needs them, many people die waiting them. I'm quite scared of even getting a generic disease because I know that I couldn't be cured. BTW the people that say that it's like a normal flu are idiots, in Italy there have been thousands of deaths in a few week with 70000 infects, the flu in Italy have killed 6000 people in 10 years with many millions of infects

  28. America is about to be taken advantage of like never before. It’s CHESS and we’re down a piece or two. Russia And North Korea are gonna play on this… EMP 2021 Coming soon. A NationWide Black out. You heard it hear first.

  29. My goodness… how irresponsible can these people be… its disgusting to me to see people not take these precautions seriously.

  30. wouldnt it be great if this was the end of existence. Just look at us as a species. Its disgusting and this virus is the cure to our virus.

  31. Without providing masks/face cover to everyone like they did in China, Japan and S.Korea the US is going to have by far the worst death rate of any country in the world. Face cover only work if everyone has them otherwise you still have sick people spreading it onto public surfaces where it remains a live virus for 2-9 days depending on the surface area material.

    If the president ignores this fact he'll be committing genocide and sentencing millions to death.

  33. People let's just put politics aside and put this epidemic first. We need to try our best to help slow the spread of covid-19. Please stay home and stay safe 🙏

  34. It going higher and it not slowing down bye the time you make something to stop may take a year or so +7 billion people the population is going down

  35. Kills me with seeing videos of press conferences and the like.
    I don't watch them just see the picture and am like 'uh sure guys I believe anything you say while you're ALL standing around each other'
    Seriously, if they don't take this whole thing seriously, why should I?

  36. I'm sure that Schumer is correct in saying "We Democrats are trying to get things done." He just neglects to state directly WHAT exactly those things are in the mass of pork spending hidden within the bill.

  37. Covid 19 has a 1-3% mortality rate, Some say the virus can infect 60% of the people.
    at worst in America with a population of 300 million that is a mortality rate up to 5.4 million.
    This is a nightmare.

  38. " We will sacrifice ourselves" meaning let em die so we can get more paper, like he ever did anything besides working a desk job.

  39. You closed when 500+ are death recorded we indian lockdown for 21 days when 500+ people are infected.
    Now I don't wonder why so many is dead and infected🤐

  40. Trump is a fricking moron. He is saying that we are overreacting, and this is the same mindset he has had since the beginning. He said that we had nothing to worry about at first, and that allowed this to spread like wildfire, and now that we are actually attempting to do something, he is saying we need to stop. If this country gets killed, it's entirely his fault. The reason we are shutting down is to slow, or even stop the spread of this virus, and yet he is saying we don't need to close. If this man gets elected again, we are ALL screwed.

    "National Epidemic Prevention" DIY medical cloth mask Qimei main doctor does not hide private teaching

    https://www.google.com.au/amp/s/www.mirrormedia.mg/story/amp/20200207edi015/

    At present, the market does not weave masks in short supply, Dr. Chen mentioned that "homemade cloth mask" is also a feasible choice, more said that senior medical personnel or border doctors are not unfamiliar, showing that protection is sufficient. He shares a homemade cloth mask like cloth, every foot (30 x 105 cm) can be made into 3;

    Washing hands frequently is more important than wearing a mask.Dr. Chen explained that the role of wearing a mask is to avoid their own mouth drops with others, the virus in the air survival is very small, if each other do not have respiratory symptoms or fever, the mask is "enough enough." Since the virus persists in the environment with mouth drops, "frequent hand washing is more important than wearing a mask". In addition, Dr. Chen also called on everyone to leave the medical mask to the necessary medical staff, he when the doctor cloth mask is enough, to the general public is even more, and repeated "protect medical personnel, is to protect yourself!" 」。
