Hospital Exec Fired After Discussing Ways Of Ensuring Trump Supporters Get Coronavirus

“Trump supporters need to pledge to give up their ventilators for someone else … and not go to the hospital.”

A New York hospital executive has been fired after she posted public comments on social media fantasising about how supporters of President Trump would get the coronavirus and not be allowed to get treatment.
The executive also happens to be, unsurprisingly, a former Hillary Clinton advisor.
Laura Krolczyk, Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center’s vice president for external affairs, made the incendiary posts on Facebook, first sharing an article about The White House being reluctant to foot the $1 billion cost associated with producing ventilators.
Hauptman Woodward Medical Research Institute Director of Development Lisa LaTrovato responded to Krolczyk’s post, writing “But will waste more than that on a wall and space force.”
Krolczyk, who worked as Western New York Regional Director for Hillary Clinton’s Senate office for 7 years, wrote back that “Trump supporters need to pledge to give up their ventilators for someone else … and not go to the hospital.”
“Also don’t cash your stimulus check,” she later added, writing “It’s all a hoax. Chew some ibuprofen and be on with your day.”
LaTrovato further responded “I think they should be the only ones in packed churches on Sunday,” to which Krolczyk replied, “They should barricade themselves in there and ride this out.”
Another Facebook user saw the exchange, wrote “Wow, just wow, so your saying we decide who lives and dies based on political views? Great plan (thumbs up emoji).”
Krolczyk then responded “That’s literally what he’s saying. Take your ‘wow’ and comprehend what your hero is saying. Your hero is saying YOU don’t need a ventilator. So don’t take one.”
The whole sorry conversation was then picked up by Republican strategist Michael Caputo, and the hospital was alerted.
While LaTrovato is still on administrative leave from Hauptman Woodward pending further action, Krolczyk has been terminated by Roswell Park.
In a statement to Buffalo News, spokeswoman Annie Deck-Miller confirmed Krolczyk had been fired.
CEO Candace S. Johnson added that “This behavior is not tolerated at Roswell Park. If any team members act in a way that does not accord with that commitment, we will take swift and appropriate action, just as we did in this instance.”
Someone ought to tell Ms. Krolczyk that when engaging in her daily two minutes of Trump derangement hate, try to do it in private, rather than on her publicly available Facebook page.
Meanwhile, she should definitely make sure she does cash her stimulus check, as it’ll be her only income for a while.
This isn’t a one off. These people are everywhere, and need to be publicly shamed.

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is an investigative journalist and writer focusing on the radical Left and Islamic terrorism.
1 in 5 Americans have been ordered to stay home. Major states and cities have been shut down.
Our response to the coronavirus represents the biggest challenge to the relationship between individuals and the government in this country since the Civil War, WW1 or WW2. These decisions will likely be debated by scholars and historians the way that the Habeas Corpus Suspension Act, the Espionage Act, Japanese internment camps, and other emergency decisions continue to be litigated.
A generation ago, the ACLU might have had something to say about the civil liberties implications of shelter-in-place orders. That was a different ACLU that at least pretended to care about civil liberties as an objective value, defending the civil rights of people it disagreed with. The new ACLU is an identity politics zombie whose only civil liberties concerns for the coronavirus response is that illegal aliens won’t be able to enter the country and that prison inmates should be released as quickly as possible.
The ACLU's position on the coronavirus is that, "individual rights must sometimes give way to the greater good. After all, when it comes to disease, we are not just individuals but also one big bio-mass."
"A disease cares little for our notions of individualism," the former civil liberties organization argues.
That is no doubt true. But we don't run our society from the perspective of a disease. And we don’t ask civil libertarians to mind-meld with viruses. Once upon a time, the ACLU might have asked what the Constitution thought of a policy. Now it asks what a disease thinks of the United States of America. And to the disease, the ACLU, and the Left, we're one big bio-mass collective with no room for individualism.
Meanwhile the ACLU has missed the civil liberties debate over what an “essential” establishment is. Shelter-in-place and other variants of the same term list the local definition of what is considered an essential or non-essential establishment. There is, as of yet, no formal federal definition.
Are liquor stores essential? They are in New York, New Jersey, St. Louis and Michigan. But not in Pennsylvania. Pot stores were deemed essential in California, New Jersey, and Massachusetts.
And in Pennsylvania.
But the “essential” debate is really blowing up when it comes to firearms.
Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva freed 1,700 criminals from county jails and launched an aggressive push to force gun stores to shut down as non-essential.
“We will be closing them, they are not an essential function,” Villanueva insisted. "You have the mixture of people that are not formerly gun owners and you have a lot more people at home and anytime you introduce a firearm in a home... it increases fourfold the chance that someone is gonna get shot.”
Whether or not that’s true, it has nothing to do with whether gun stores are essential or not. Villanueva is wrongly conflating a gun control risk argument with defining what is an essential business.
And when thousands of criminals are set loose, firearms become more essential than ever.
While Illinois had deemed firearms businesses to be essential, Pennsylvania did not. The state’s version of “essential” or “life-sustaining”, like California, covers marijuana, but not firearms. That’s a problem since Philly authorities had announced that they wouldn’t be arresting “non-violent offenders”.
Non-violent offenders, a highly misleading term for a wide variety of some, potentially quite hostile and dangerous criminals, includes car theft, burglary and other threats to personal property.
The Pennsylvania Supreme Court heard a case by a gun shop owner and split, with the majority upholding the Democrat shutdown of gun stores in the state, while a minority dissented, arguing, that it's, “an absolute and indefinite prohibition upon the acquisition of firearms by the citizens of this commonwealth — a result in clear tension with the Second Amendment”
Meanwhile, on the other side of the political dial, Louisiana, Ohio, and Texas classified abortions as non-essential, though Ohio abortion facilities don’t appear to actually be obeying orders to close down.
Are gun stores or abortion clinics essential?
To people on one side, one of them is the footprint of a murderous industry that shouldn’t even exist and on the other is a constitutionally protected right. Litigation over both sides and both industries has been fought endlessly, but is now being settled by fiat under the guise of emergency measures.
That’s the civil liberties problem with giving government unlimited emergency powers to shut down everything it wants to with very little scrutiny and no meaningful appeal against its decisions.
There is an emergency. But civil rights don’t disappear in emergencies. They matter more than ever.
The use of emergency powers allow government to strip away individual rights with very little oversight. And it’s inevitable that, as in Los Angeles County, those powers will be used for self-serving reasons.
In an emergency, it’s vital to keep government honest by questioning how it uses its powers, examining its motives for using those powers, and pushing to set limits on these emergency powers. The tension between emergency powers and civil liberties is the cauldron out of which freedom is constantly reborn. 
When the government is gifted with the power to shut down anything in an emergency, its officials will make those decisions along the lines of their preconceived cultural, moral, and political views.
Even when the effect is to override existing civil liberties.
The debate over the shutdowns has been presented as a utilitarian contest between lives and the economy: balancing the risk to people and the risk to their ability to earn a living. But beyond the utilitarian debates and the numbers, of unemployment figures, and projected casualties, are the intangible moral and cultural factors that may well mark this nation even generations afterward.
Every emergency violation of civil liberties has left its scars on America. Including the Civil War. If this time is to be different, we must learn the lessons of those pasts before they turn into the new present.
No society is free all the time. But the difference between a free and unfree society is that a free society keeps asking challenging questions even during periods when civil liberties have been suspended. And by asking questions, its citizens work to keep this state of affairs an aberration, not the new normal.
When people become reflexively used to obeying orders, to jumping without asking any questions, then the crisis response becomes a new cultural norm. That’s why the fight to protect civil liberties from shutdown orders should not wait until the crisis is over. Even now may already be too late.
This is not the time to stop asking questions, but to start asking them.
President Trump can take an important first step by adopting a definition of essential businesses that includes gun stores: sending the message that the government stands behind the Second Amendment.
Because civil liberties don’t stop mattering during a pandemic. They matter now more than ever.


Targeted by the Stasi: revisiting the past | 

DW Documentary of life in East Germany

The Stasi spied on Silke Orphal and Ilona Seeber for years - after they applied to go to the West. Thirty years after the fall of the Berlin Wall, they both look back at their Stasi files. The Stasi files of Silke Orphal and Ilona Seeber include intercepted letters, official documents and countless reports by spies who meticulously noted everything about their lives, including the turning on and off of lights. When Silke Orphal and Ilona Seeber, who were both ordinary typists at Neues Deutschland - the official newspaper of the Socialist Unity Party - applied to leave the GDR, it was considered scandalous. They were ostracized at work, threatened and subjected to interrogations that lasted hours. What did the experience do to them? How do they look back on that time today? A report by Axel Rowohlt.
SEE: below in full unedited for informational, educational and research purposes:
Neighbors spying on neighbors, people encouraged to report each other, curtains twitching as you walk by. Sound familiar?
The tactics used by the Stasi in East Germany in 1950, creating a secret police organization through a vast network of informants, are now being encouraged by British police in the UK in 2020. And the Chinese Virus was all it took for people to willingly comply.
Humberside Police (in the east midlands of England) has created an online portal where people can report those they suspect of not following social distancing rules, such as exercising only once a day or leaving the house only to buy food or for medical emergencies.
They say:
‘Reports will be assessed based on the information provided and we would ask people to please consider the circumstance before making their report.’
Another force – Derbyshire Police (central midlands) – sent drones to a remote walking spot in the Peak District, an area known for its beautiful views, and captured actual footage of … dog walkers. There is something very disconcerting about police filming innocent people without their permission.
‘Walking your dog in the Peak District. Not essential.
Going for a walk miles from home. Not essential.
Going out of your way for an Instagram snap. Not essential.’
Each statement was overlaid on actual footage of real people quietly taking their exercise in solitude miles from anywhere and anyone. This is the British police acting as the New Puritans, placing dog walkers in metaphorical stocks to be publicly shamed.
It’s enough to make Lady Liberty shudder. These dog walkers, socially isolating in the hills, are about as much of a transmission risk as my mother, 72, currently in lockdown in her tiny bungalow in the countryside.
And yet the police appear to be enjoying humiliating decent people in this way. You can almost see them salivating over the opportunity to spy on the public, just as you can see some members of the public fizzing at the thought of reporting neighbors who are not following the rules.
Of course, the decent Brits trying to get on with their lives are the easiest police target. Why get out on the streets and confront knife crime or raid mosques (where mullahs refer to the coronavirus as a solider of Allah), when you can sit in a comfortable vehicle and practice flying an expensive new gadget over peaceable dog walkers?
And sadly certain groups are using the virus as a weapon. A group of young black men were intimidating an elderly couple by spitting and coughing on them. In Birmingham, majority Pakistani Muslim men continue about their daily lives as normal, untroubled by British laws which they feel do not apply to them. These groups are the untouchables.
A retired police officer got in touch with me to confirm my thoughts: ‘Katie, I’m an ex cop, you are so right. It’s embarrassing how they are behaving. The thing is white, middle class types don’t argue back”
Greater Manchester Police Denton (@GMPDenton) went a step further and published this tweet on their official Twitter account:
This is utterly untrue. This is not government advice. It is made up. It is a fabrication and an abuse of power by British police.
We are one goose-step away from a time we would all rather forget. By 1989 the Stasi in East Germany maintained files on around six million East German citizens, with information gleaned from up to two million informants and employees.
How quickly we forget.
Clearly the Chinese Virus demands our utmost attention. We all need to take personal responsibility and obey the government health warnings to the letter.
But there is a difference between taking personal responsibility and being asked to snitch on others. We should not have to take inflated police egos implementing fabricated laws.
As our attention is monopolized by the immediate issues of infection and deaths rates, I fear we are being distracted from the real threat to society which is far greater than the virus in the longer term: a power-grab on our freedoms.
New laws are being passed at breakneck speed. In the UK the Health Protection (Coronavirus) Regulations 2020 hurtled through Parliament like a runaway train – and are in place for six months. The headline is that ‘no one may leave the place they are living without reasonable excuse’.
Now the police have the power to fine you if you disobey the Government’s restrictions on your freedoms. Or if they feel your excuse is not ‘reasonable’ enough.
Hidden inside these new laws are other state powers that would cause many to flinch if they read them. Hotels, B&Bs and similar businesses may be requisitioned by the Secretary of State. How would you feel if this new law applied to an Airbnb room inside your home?
There is also a jarring shift in the way many see the world, a turning away from personal responsibility towards the state. Feeling helpless against an invisible killer, many have laid down their own sense of self and are looking to the government for everything –  money, health advice, even permission.
I have watched it happen in my own social circle, surprised by the speed at which formerly self-sufficient individuals have clamored for help from the state.
As our brilliant new chancellor rushed through a relief package to support businesses and their employees, self-employed friends of mine, usually endlessly resourceful and too proud to claim benefits, hesitated to seek new jobs in case the state chose to offer them compensation for their lost work instead.
The change is palpable. On 12 December 2019, the last General Election in the UK, British people did not vote for Jeremy Corbyn or a Labour government, but it certainly feels as if much of what Labour would have implemented is now being enforced by the Conservatives we did vote for. While we worried about our health and the safety of our elderly, the socialists have stolen a march on us.
Once we have created a nation of dependents, how many of them will un-suckle from the teat when this is over? Power is so easily given away to the state and its associated authorities, but it is very, very hard to retrieve afterwards.
I implore the USA to observe the example being played out in the UK. We are operating around two weeks ahead of you in terms of the virus and response. As you catch up, I am fearful for the power grab the Democrats will make on your constitutional rights.
Having watched the Democrats stuffing the financial stimulus package with $12 billion in spending for their own pet projects with tenuous or disputed connection to the emergency, it is clear not even the suffering of ordinary Americans will deter them from their socialist agenda.
Over $10 million for International Development, $350 million for refugee resettlement, $75 million for the National Foundation on Arts and Humanities and $25 million for the Kennedy Center for Performing Arts and tells us they will stop at nothing to get their way.
Benjamin Franklin wrote:
Those who would give up essential Liberty to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.
The British people gave up any real notion of liberty a long time ago. We do not have a second amendment, let alone a first. In the UK we have a police task force dedicated to policing speech online. New laws mean we are now policed for our excuses to leave our homes.
America needs to brace itself for something far more powerful than the Chinese Virus: the power grab on your freedoms by the State. Democrats are preparing the ground for 2024.

U.K. Cops Say Tyranny Fights the Wuhan Virus

Governments and law enforcement authorities throughout the world are currently testing how oppressive they can be. British police are using drone-captured imagery to shame people for taking walks in the countryside.


The news media has been propagating the story that there is a ventilator shortage, and are using it to maximize panic; with the aid of New York's Governor, Andrew Cuomo. They are lying once again to terrorize for political reasons and to make a power play. This behavior fits the dictionary definition of terrorism. Meanwhile, they have a martial law 'solution' ready to go.



National Guardsman At NY Testing Center 

Says Media Has Overblown COVID19 Pandemic "It's the Flu!"


A huge US Navy hospital ship containing 1,000 beds has docked in New York City. The USNS Comfort aims to take the pressure off the city’s hospitals as they deal with the spread of COVID-19. New York is now the epicenter of the coronavirus outbreak in the USA. But the ship is not expected to treat coronavirus patients. Rather it will be used to relocate shore-based patients undergoing treatments that are not coronavirus-related.


From John Hopkins Hospital....

The following is from Irene Ken physician, whose daughter is an Asst. Prof in infectious diseases at Johns Hopkins University.

* The virus is not a living organism, but a protein molecule (DNA) covered by a protective layer of lipid (fat), which, when absorbed by the cells of the ocular, nasal or buccal mucosa, changes their genetic code. (mutation) and convert them into aggressor and multiplier cells.

* Since the virus is not a living organism but a protein molecule, it is not killed, but decays on its own. The disintegration time depends on the temperature, humidity and type of material where it lies.
* The virus is very fragile; the only thing that protects it is a thin outer layer of fat. That is why any soap or detergent is the best remedy, because the foam CUTS the FAT (that is why you have to rub so much: for 20 seconds or more, to make a lot of foam).
By dissolving the fat layer, the protein molecule disperses and breaks down on its own.
* HEAT melts fat; this is why it is so good to use water above 25 degrees Celsius for washing hands, clothes and everything. In addition, hot water makes more foam and that makes it even more useful.
* Alcohol or any mixture with alcohol over 65% DISSOLVES ANY FAT, especially the external lipid layer of the virus.
* Any mix with 1 part bleach and 5 parts water directly dissolves the protein, breaks it down from the inside.
* Oxygenated water helps long after soap, alcohol and chlorine, because peroxide dissolves the virus protein, but you have to use it pure and it hurts your skin.
* NO BACTERICIDE OR ANTIBIOTIC SERVES. The virus is not a living organism like bacteria; antibodies cannot kill what is not alive.
* NEVER shake used or unused clothing, sheets or cloth. While it is glued to a porous surface, it is very inert and disintegrates only
-between 3 hours (fabric and porous),
-4 hours (copper and wood)
-24 hours (cardboard),
- 42 hours (metal) and
-72 hours (plastic).
But if you shake it or use a feather duster, the virus molecules float in the air for up to 3 hours, and can lodge in your nose.
* The virus molecules remain very stable in external cold, or artificial as air conditioners in houses and cars.
They also need moisture to stay stable, and especially darkness. Therefore, dehumidified, dry, warm and bright environments will degrade it faster.
* UV LIGHT on any object that may contain it breaks down the virus protein. For example, to disinfect and reuse a mask is perfect. Be careful, it also breaks down collagen (which is protein) in the skin.
* The virus CANNOT go through healthy skin.
* Vinegar is NOT useful because it does not break down the protective layer of fat.
* NO SPIRITS, NOR VODKA, serve. The strongest vodka is 40% alcohol, and you need 65%.
* LISTERINE IF IT SERVES! It is 65% alcohol.
* The more confined the space, the more concentration of the virus there can be. The more open or naturally ventilated, the less.
* You have to wash your hands before and after touching mucosa, food, locks, knobs, switches, remote control, cell phone, watches, computers, desks, TV, etc. And when using the bathroom.
* You have to HUMIDIFY HANDS DRY from so much washing them, because the molecules can hide in the micro cracks. The thicker the moisturizer, the better.
* Also keep your NAILS SHORT so that the virus does not hide there.

No one is making light of the coronavirus epidemic that I know of. It is a major problem.

Death is no light matter. In fact, it is far more serious than most people think. If the Bible is true, death is a matter of eternal heaven or eternal hell. If people understood how truly serious death is, they would not be so frantically focused on trying to live a few years longer before physical death, they would be focused, rather, on finding salvation from eternal death.

Yes, the coronavirus is serious, but there has to be a proper perspective, which is not found in the panic-driven media or in the voices of a lot of men and women who should know better. They say we can’t live with coronavirus. We have to eradicate it at all cost. There can be no middle ground. If we have to kill the economy, we will kill the economy, but we can’t live with coronavirus death.

The reason that this is a wrong perspective is that we DO live with death. We are dying people in a world of death. This is the reality of life on earth. About 56 MILLION people die every year, which is 153,000 deaths PER DAY, 6,400 PER HOUR, every hour, hour after hour after hour.

We live with death in a thousand forms and we must learn how to live with coronavirus.

Microsoft founder Bill Gates, one of the world’s wealthiest men, has criticized President Trump’s focus on trying to get people back to work and restart the economy as soon as possible.

President Trump said, “You can destroy a country this way, by closing it down, where it literally goes from being the most prosperous. I would love to have the country opened up and just raring to go by Easter” (‘Trump says he wants country ‘opened up’ by Easter,” NBC News, Mar. 24, 2020). Easter is on April 12 this year.

The President is right; such a goal is wise. He hasn’t said that he is going to ignore the coronavirus, and he certainly hasn’t acted like he is going to ignore it. He has not said that he is going to suddenly lift all restrictions on April 12 and let people move about and congregate as freely as before until the coronavirus is under control. He simply wants to find the best way to deal with the coronavirus on one hand and to keep the economy alive on the other. You would have to be an idiot to fault that.

But Bill Gates said, “It’s very tough to say to people, ‘Hey, keep going to restaurants, go buy new houses, ignore that pile of bodies over in the corner, we want you to keep spending because there’s some politician that thinks GDP growth is what counts’” (TEDS Connections, Mar. 24, 2020).

Gates says that there is “no middle ground” between the virus and the cost to the economy. Gates is a smart guy and he knows finances and world conditions as well as anyone, but in this matter he is not exercising wisdom. Like other liberal-minded people today, it appears that he simply hates Trump and wants to take pot shots at him. I don’t know his motive, but this appears to be what is happening, because he isn’t being logical.

Gates of all people should not make light of GDP growth. Everything about the modern, life-saving medical field has to do with money, lots and lots and lots of money. The fact that America has a highly trained medical corps, world-class medical research and education, efficient hospitals, life-saving drugs, the ability to invent and mass produce things like MRIs and ventilators and coronavirus testing devices, an efficient and pure drug distribution system, the operation of a competent, dependable ambulance service, and the ability of the people to access such things, is because we have a high GDP.

These things were not invented in nor developed by, and they are not enjoyed by, poor nations. We would wait forever for poor nations to develop a cure for coronavirus, or even a rapid testing mechanism.

It appears that Bill needs to leave his mansion on a lake and spend a few years (not a few hours) in a really poor nation to understand the value of a prosperous economy at a much more fundamental level. Microsoft didn’t come into existence and blossom into a multi-billion dollar enterprise that provides employment of a lot of people at a very healthy lifestyle in an environment of a destroyed economy.

In the many places on this earth today where the economy is weak, people die like flies. They die in infancy by the multitudes. If they survive infancy, they have a short lifespan compared to the prosperous “West.” They die of things that are routinely cured in prosperous places. Even if there are a few modern hospitals in the really poor nations, the vast majority of the people can’t afford to use them. Instead they go to the witchdoctors, the quacks, the poorly-trained doctors, the drug distributors that dispense corrupt medicines, the pathetically-equipped clinics, and they die. I think of a maternity hospital in one South Asian country in which about 90% of those who go into ICU die.
If you solve the coronavirus problem by killing the economy, you will cause more deaths in the long run by other means. There has to be some middle ground.

Bill Gates and his like-minded cronies need to support the President at this time instead of engaging in petty bickering. They need to rise above politics and use their genius to find ways to get people back to work as soon as possible, as widely as possible.

The bottom line is that we live in a world of death and dwell in a “body of this death” (Ro. 7:24). We live in a world where bodies would pile up in the corners every day if they weren’t disposed of, with or without the coronavirus. About 3 million people die of all causes in America every year, and 56 million worldwide. That’s MILLION. Worldwide, that’s 153,000 deaths per day, 6,400 PER HOUR, every hour, hour after hour after hour.. The leading causes of death in America are, in the following order, heart disease, cancer, accidents, lower respiratory diseases, stroke, Alzheimer’s, diabetes, and influenza. People die in the womb (125,000 are aborted daily worldwide); they die in infancy; they die in childhood; they die in youth; they die as young adults; they die in midlife; they die in old age. Every soul on earth is going to die, sooner or later, by one means or another. We are dying people in a world of death. We are under the curse of death because of sin. “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord” (Ro. 6:23).

Many have mocked the comparison of covid-19 with the flu, but there is a comparison. Covid-19 is still a small thing compared to influenza, though it is yet to be seen how they will compare in the end. In 2018, THERE WERE 80,000 FLU DEATHS IN AMERICA, which was about 450 deaths per day. Worldwide, about 1 billion people contract the flu, according to Johns Hopkins Medicine, and about 500,000 die annually during the flu season, according to the Centers for Disease Control. That is about 6,250 FLU DEATHS PER DAY or 260 PER HOUR.

It appears that influenza is not as easily spread as coronavirus, but that influenza is very contagious is obvious by the massive numbers of infections annually. A billion! It is yet to be seen if covid-19 has a larger fatality rate, and is more deadly, than influenza.
If influenza infections and fatalities were to be tracked on a chart and updated in real time and broadcast continually from every news site on earth and flashed across the length and breadth of social media as per covid-19, there would be unending panic every year. The six-foot rule would be a permanent reality.

The largest global infectious pandemic is tuberculosis (TB), which sickens 10 million and kills 1.5 million annually (a death every 21 seconds). It is the world’s No. 1 infectious killer and the ninth-leading cause of death worldwide. WHO estimates that 1.8 billion people are infected by Mycobacterium tuberculosis, the bacteria that causes TB. It is a global disease, found in every country in the world. “TB is an airborne disease that can be spread by coughing or sneezing and is the leading cause of infectious disease worldwide. There is growing resistance to available drugs, which means the disease is becoming more deadly and difficult to treat. There were more than half a million cases of drug resistant TB last year” (

Again, this is not to make light of the coronavirus. It is a major problem. No one is making of light of it, that I know of. But there has to be a proper perspective, which is not found in the panic-driven media. We do live with death. It is reality, and we must learn how to live with coronavirus.
