Coronavirus in America: the good, the bad, the ugly

Make sure to let us know what you think... we now have comments turned ON below the article!

Here is what is going on in Covid-19 America. Some things are good, some things are bad, and some things are downright ugly.

The good

The Trump administration is providing strong leadership during this Chinese coronavirus crisis.  A vaccine for Covid-19 is already being tested. An anti-malarial drug, Chloroquine, is a possible treatment for those who have contracted the virus. President Trump has closed the northern and southern borders to all but essential traffic.

According to the NIH,

A Phase 1 clinical trial evaluating an investigational vaccine designed to protect against coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) has begun at Kaiser Permanente Washington Health Research Institute (KPWHRI) in Seattle.

Dr. Anthony Fauci, a member of the White House Coronavirus Task Force, emphasized the importance of both the speed and the study. “This Phase 1 study, launched in record speed, is an important first step toward achieving that goal.”

A California research company, Cepheid has developed a “rapid” coronavirus test. Currently, it takes more than a day to get a test. According to Live Science:

The tests were developed by California-based company Cepheid and will be shipped to U.S. facilities by March 30, according to an FDA announcement. However, right now, the tests are likely only going to be used in a hospital setting, where a patient is already in an emergency room or hospital triage wing and needs to be diagnosed rapidly, STAT reported.

President Trump has spent the last few days talking about an anti-malarial drug, chloroquine, that might help treat victims of the coronavirus. Chloroquine is a cheap and effective anti-malarial drug used to reduce fever and inflammation in malaria patients.

It is being tested by the FDA and it has been approved for “compassionate” use, meaning, it can be used if an infected person requests it.

Dr. Anthony Fauci talks about the hopeful prospects of the drug:

According to James Gallagher, BBC health correspondent, “Chloroquine seems to block the coronavirus in lab studies. There’s some anecdotal evidence from doctors saying it has appeared to help.”

Border closings

President Trump was considering closing our southern border way back in February. Predictably, there was a large outcry from the media, but now not only the southern but also the northern border are closed to all but essential crossings. The president explained:

“As we did with Canada, we’re also working with Mexico to implement new rules at our ports of entry to suspend non-essential travel. These new rules and procedures will not impede lawful trade and commerce.”

The Bad

Millions of Americans and American businesses have been shut down. There is a shortage of some medical necessaries like respirators, ventilators, masks, gloves and other personal protective equipment otherwise known as PPE.

The cost of idling millions of Americans has not been counted or realized yet, but one could imagine that when the world’s largest economy is slowed down or stopped, billions, and probably trillions will be lost. It is hard to find any data or even speculation about this aspect of the impact of the Chinese coronavirus.

Some American politicians, like Senator Josh Hawley are calling for China to be held financially responsible for the economic devastation, saying that the cost in lives and money would not be so high if China had been honest about the start and spread of the virus in Wuhan. Instead, China hid the information and allowed travel in and out of China for weeks. President Trump instituted a travel ban to and from China in January.

Many of our medical supplies and drugs are imported from China and other countries. Medical supplies like respirators, ventilators, gloves, and facemasks are in high demand as over a hundred countries are now fighting the coronavirus. President Trump invoked the Defense Production Act to redirect American companies to start prioritizing and producing the supplies we need to fight the virus.

The Ugly

The number of cases of coronavirus in the US continues to climb as testing becomes more widespread. The US stock market and all other markets have tanked, wiping out trillions of dollars of wealth.

According to Johns Hopkins University, the number of cases in Italy has risen to over 41,000, with hundreds of deaths each day overwhelming the Italian morgues. The US numbers are rising, too, but not as fast at this point.

As Dr. Fauci, a member of the White House Coronavirus Task Force said, Americans can expect the infection rate to get worse before it gets better. Americans are being asked to practice “social distancing” in an effort to slow the spread of the virus.

The US stock market has tanked over the last few weeks. It has been a blood bath. Just as the market frequently set records in its meteoric rise since President Trump won the 2016 election, it also set astounding records as its rapid fall erased all the gains of the last 3 and half years.

The Dow Jones Industrial fell from a record high of  29,551  points on February 12 to 19,173 points at the close of the market on March 20 for a loss of 10,378 points. Uncertainty over the Chinese coronavirus and its impact on the global economy is blamed for the catastrophic decline and destruction of trillions of dollars.

It remains to be seen which is more devastating, the uncertainty surrounding the virus, or the virus itself.

  1. CONSPIRACY FROM THE FIRST DAY
    Everyone has an opinion and I’m one of those thousands of average citizens (legal) that always has a say without the capital letters after my name. Thank God we can still speak our mind. I always say we should STAND OUT, STAND UP, AND STAND FIRM IN THE FAITH.
    I’ve concluded that this corona virus has been a conspiracy from day one. Don’t you think it looks rather suspicious as Trumps popularity grew that the globalists began to panic? They had to do something and quick… germ warfare. China wasn’t concerned about how many of their own would die, their people are expandable. Their goal was to spread it worldwide so that we would have one huge crisis in an effort to bring in their global system, THE NEW WORLD ORDER. As Saul Alinsky once said “you never let a crisis go to waste”. He was Hillary’s mentor for years and a confessing communist.
    The puzzle starts to come together. They couldn’t bring Trump down with all their failed schemes, but this would hit him and America where it hurts. If the truth were known and in todays world who do you trust to give you that truth, we may never know who and what’s behind it.
    Pelosi is holding up the aid for America’s people for her own agenda and it’s not a nice one. As Americans, how long will we sit back and allow this woman to dictate and force her agenda on this country’s people while we watch them die from the corona virus? I told my kids if I came down with it, I would volunteer to be a test patient, sign a release and tell my doctor to give me the medications (chloroquine and azithromycin) that are proving to be successful. If this combination of drugs works, we would put a hole in the globalist plans to control the world. Our people would be strong again and move forward to making America Great through the leadership of our President. Continue to pray for Trump, VP and their families for their health and safety in this hostile environment that there in. Just a thought and thank God I can still share it without repercussions.

    1. I agree with everything you have said in your article. As monstrous and horrible as it sounds, I believe the globalists are capable of this atrocity. I only hope that those responsible for this are eventually identified and punished.

    2. THANK YOU FOR SHARING. I SO AGREE WITH YOU. IF THEY CAN DESTROY THE CURRENT MONEY SYSTEM, WOULD WE NOT BE OPEN TO THE ONE WORLD MONEY SYSTEM, WHICH SHOULD BE THE BEGINNING OF THE END (ON THIS EARTH), BUT THANK GOD, WHAT IS AHEAD IN HEAVEN IS SO MUCH BETTER.
      WE HAVE HAD AROUND 500 DEATHS IN THE US, & WE LOSE THOUSANDS EVERY YEAR TO THE FLU, & NO ONE SEEMS TO GET TOO EXCITED ABOUT THAT. SO, I SURE DO WONDER WHAT IS GOING ON.
      GOD BLESS YOU.

    3. Hi Dear, I’m with you! I would like to add the economy issue, I think it’s done on purpose to create the one world banking system to be ready for their plans together with UN agenda 21-30 the UN is the NWO agency and the WHO and the IMF even the European Union, they want control and a cashless society

    4. Interesting perspective. You May be right about this. Nothing they have done so fat has taken Trump down so why not this.

    5. Lupie Riley, I agree with you wholeheartedly. Furthermore, it our prayers—-the persistent power of PRAYERS of the pivot of Christians in our country, which will ultimately stand firm before the Lord. Only God can intervene and end this plague. Nevertheless, there is a reason for all things He allows, for all peoples in all situations, working behind the scenes to move His plan for mankind and the earth forward. Whether this plague is a plot by our enemies, the work of one madman, the work of an evil personage or nation, these things either come from Satan and his plot to overthrow God, or they come from God, to discipline or bless an individual or the nations. However the cause, whatever the purpose, we DO know that God has it in hand, that He is and always will be, still in control, and that He can turn any evil purpose towards His good and His glory. Thank you for your comment, Lupie Riley. Norma A.Vincent, Authentic American Christian Cowgirl, Artist, Poet, Writer

  2. It has been planned by certain people to have a global kill off for years with these folks complaining there are to many people on the earth. That the earth cannot support all of this people explosion. Humans are their own worst enemy. Just look at the pollution that is floating around in our air, water and food chains. Humans are like locust destroying everything in its way. Now they want to return to other planets and destroy them with their trash.

    1. Gates is colluded with them as well as China, gates is a partner of the lab that created de Chinavirus, a few weeks before there was a simulation of an attack and pandemic of the Corona virus…. coincidence? You can find the info on line… and just a few days ago he resigned to his position in Microsoft..more free time to travel worldwide vaccinating and promoting depopulation…

  3. the coronavirus hype is a bs scam. go to the gov’t cdc site, and type in flu. you will find that 12,000 died in 2017-18 from the regular yearly flu. now we’re closing down the entire state of Pa. just because 10 people died. the total infection rate in the entire USA is only 1/100 of a percent, of our total population. the evil mainstream media isover-hyping and terrorizing the public as usual. it is indeed, FAKE NEWS, just as President Trump says. the virus mutates as it spreads to each person. the worst form was when it first jumped from bat to human in China, that’s why so many died there. the next form after that, was when it jumped from Chinese human to the Italians, Spanish, Iranians, NYC, Michigan, and Washington state. that’s why those areas have high concentrations of death. these are all areas where Chinese people vacationed, or were on business trips. then when it went from those areas, further into the interior of USA, the infection and death rate dropped off dramatically. reason being a virus is genetically smart and doesn’t want to instantly kill the host, if it does it also dies with the host. it wants to live as long as possible, so it mutates and lessens its bite, so as to not kill the host quickly. this way it can live on and be spread to more hosts. already the USA virus is in decline. there are no new cases in China or Korea, after only 8-10 weeks. it’s not a 2 year pandemic as the media is hyping. don’t believe a word the cable news says.

  4. I truly believe all this is not a coincidence and was ruthlessly planned. I hope those responsible are held accountable

  5. Google “Georgia guidestone or monument”. First guideline says maintain a population of 500,000,000 humanity. Covid19, another depopulation event from satanic forces. Jesus of the Bible is our only hope.

  6. Remember God doesn’t promise us that we will never go through hard times, serious things that we have no control over. He does promise us that He will be with us as we do. God has always blessed
    America, He will see us through. Do you believe in coincidence? I do not. It is not a coincidence that we have the President that we now have in office, he is strong, able to guide us in this pandemic. Did you know that God is in charge of who is elected, who is leading our country? Be happy that we have a President who CAN and DOES LEAD. I believe that God is guiding President Trump.
