    Trump did this a couple of weeks ago, but it did not catch on. Think he hit the nail on the head.

    Funny thing is we did not get much MSM Coverage of the 2019 -2020 Seasonal Flu.

    First, it is not a "Flu", if anything it is closer to a "cold" as some of "colds" are corona viruses.

    Why should that phrase “catch on”? Corona viruses are not influenza viruses. I thought we were opposed to “fake news”

    Coronaviruses and influenza viruses are both enveloped, single-stranded RNA viruses, and both are encapsidated by nucleoprotein. However, the genomes of these 2 viruses differ in polarity and segmentation. Influenza virus is comprised of 8 single-stranded negative-sense, viral RNA segments. SARS-CoV-2 has single-stranded, non-segmented, positive-sense, viral RNA.

    I agree. A silly suggestion to trivialize a tragic occurrence. Shame on you.

    We call it the Kung Flu around here. We don't care if it's a flu or not either. Kung Flu.
