Someone must have finally lit a firecracker under Donald Trump. All of a sudden, after three months of downplaying the seriousness of the coronavirus, Trump snapped to attention. He's taken on the mantle, describing himself as the General in battle, fighting against the coronavirus.
Phew! That diet coke must be dynamite stuff!
Rumor has it that Jared Kushner, the son in law, told Trump to treat coronavirus as a PR problem. Skip taking immediate action. He also said it was a piece of fake news promoted by Democrats.
It’s like Sleepy listening to Dopey, and there isn’t a Snow White around.
Hold it. Not so fast. Along came Nancy Pelosi with a multi-billion dollar package to fight coronavirus. The woman seems to be the only thinking person in D.C. Why hasn’t Joe Biden mentioned Pelosi as his possible Vice President?
Anyway, Trump insisted on calling the virus the Chinese coronavirus.
Why? “Because that’s where it came from.”
It seems a man from Wuhan, China, cooked and ate bat soup which is supposed to be a delicacy in China. However, the bat didn’t come from a bat farm, where bats are raised for human consumption. No. This bat was a sick bat that the soup maker found dead on his doorstep or roadkill. “Dinner!”
So the whole world is suffering from a pandemic, is sick, will survive, or die. And maybe people will have a recurrence of coronavirus, sort of like having the flu or a cold, every other year or so. And maybe, people will develop a natural immunity to coronavirus. Who knows?
All of this pandemonium because of one sick bat in Wuhan, China?
Anthrax is deadly but isn't contagious. Coronavirus seems to have spread and killed like radiation or sarin gas. That bat is an everlasting Chernobyl. Has it reached the International Space Station? How long will the space station remain a safe zone?
Navy hospital ships should arrive at their destinations sometime next year, along with ventilators and face masks. It’s a life or death situation and the Generals in charge.
Keep your fingers crossed.
