Covid-19, A Fraud?

 

Apparently there are still some individuals who persist in the belief that Coronavirus, or Covid-19, is not really a pandemic. It’s nothing to worry about but a hoax, a fraud that is targetting the world in general, the United States in particular. Here are a few facts:

 

1/ As of this evening there have been 2,605,771 cases of Covid-19.

2/ As of this evening there have been 181,476 deaths due to Covid-19.

56,883 that are serious or critical.

4/ There are 210 countries or territories that are affected by Covid-19.

 

So, based on these facts decide if it is a fraud or a hoax, and if you do decide that it is, I would love to see how you explain the loss of relatives and loved ones to the survivors of the killer that is Covid-19.

Fine post, Hull--unfortunately, no facts will penetrate their bubble if the don't believe anyone but Comrade Donny!

I know but it kind of made me angry enough to respond.

The desperation of some people to keep their jobs and pay their rent turns them into morons. I don't know why else they'd be so ignorant.

Yeah, it's almost beyond belief. Thanks, Jeff.

Given the terrible loss of life, I find it incredulous that anyone could express this view... this pandemic is catastrophic, and I can only conclude that those who genuinely believe it is a hoax are completely deluded, mentally unbalanced and emotionally dysfunctional. How anyone could have such flippant disregard for the horrendous loss of life is, quite frankly, both unbelievable and delusional.

Absolutely! A comment on one of your posts pushed me to write this.

The thing about alternate realities is they always collapse when they collide with actual reality.

Yeah, there are denialists in the small town I live in. They believe we are immune because we don't live in the city. The young people still hang around together at night around the town centre. They believe they are immortal. It will only take one returned overseas traveller to infect their children, whom they still send to school tospread Covid 19 throughout the town. I'm lucky. I live alone and don't go out more than a couple of times a week for food and other supplies.
We have quite a strict lockdown in Australia, but we didn't enforce it as quickly or as rigorously as they did in New Zealand where they almost have it under control. The situation in the USA is dreadful and Trump's denialism has only exacerbated its spread PM Boris Johnson did the same in the UK. I wrote a poem called Love in an Age of Plague recently, which is a play on a Gabriel Garcia Marquez novel - Love in a Time of Cholera. Trump is a dangerous idiot and there is nothing more tedious than a tedious idiot.

I couldn't agree more on all points. I too live in a rural location in Ireland and only go to town a couple of times a week. Most of the infections here have been in cities, but not all. Like you say, it only takes one to increase the spread dramatically.
Thanks so much for reading and for making such a thoughtful comment.

Recently in America there's been quite a few protests popping up wanting to open the country back up....which isn't a good idea because this shit is still serious as hell. To even enter businesses in my area you have to wear some sort of face covering. At this point anyone who believes that Covid-19 is fake is beyond help

I couldn't agree more, MW, but there are quite a few of them still out there. Thanks for reading.

I don't know how many think this isn't real anymore, but people do have conspiracies. The whole 5G is annoying and will only get people killed and property destroyed. US government thinking China started this in a lab is useless, because would it matter that much? It's just Trump trying to look for a scapegoat. And seriously, putting money into researching that when that money could be spent a lot better? Fucking stupid. And I feel like if they come to the conclusion this wasn't from a lab, Trump will just fire everyone saying so. Because apparently he's a medical expert.

Yeah, I have to agree with you on all those points. But there are still those in denial out there, or maybe they accept it exists but want to shrug it off as insignificant.
Thanks for reading.

I'm hoping it is all mathematical. I live 3 km from a town of 2000 idiots. Lockdown and isolation have only improved my writing, as I have nothing much else to do and the threat of imminent death does focus one's mind. I found a poem I wrote a few years ago called: "What will they say about me after I am dead?" Knowing this town, which I call Hopelesstown in my short stories, it will be a list of lies.

I can relate to your comment in so many ways. Apart from the distance to the nearest town - seven and a half miles, which is, what... 13km. I don't think the residents would have one word to say about me, and I'm thinking that would be the best outcome.
Thanks so much for giving this a read.

An American denialist attacked me regarding my Covid 19 treatise, claiming I was worrying about nothing. He also criticised an earlier critique of Trump in relation to Trump's climate change denial. "Trump is the greatest President we've ever had." So many idiots, so little hope. It makes one despair. He must be following my critical posts in order to attack my writing, ideas and philosophy. Bizarre! Don't they have anything better to do.

No need for names, I know exactly who you mean. And as for despair - boy, doesn't it! Did you hear about the disinfectant claim?
