You can blame every bit of this on the news media and their political party, which is the Marxocrat Party. Yeah, the Red Chinese started it with their virus fiasco, but the news media and their party blew it all way out of proportion.
The survivalist "Preppers", always contemptuously news-reported as being wild-eyed conspiracy theorists and general all around nut cases are all asking, who's crazy now, as an increasingly panic-stricken American public joins them in their hoarding of all survival essentials.
Seriously, this media-induced and media maintained public panic is going to kill people. Old and infirm and serious risk patients are not keeping their medical appointments, because they're scared to death of catching the Caronavirus and dying. What happens when, for instance, a cardiac patient with a serious heart problem stops seeing his doctor?
When I say they are scared to death, I mean that literally.
People are actually fighting over toilet paper in stores. It's getting crazy out there, and the media won't shut up about it. You cannot turn on a radio or a TV without hearing about how Coronavirus is gonna kill us all. It's being treated like Ebola, or the Bubonic Pllague, and it is a cold virus. Yet today, according to Coronavirus Update Live, the USA has 24,142 cases, 288 deaths, for a fatality rate down to 1.19%, as we predicted in the previous Corona Virus treatment, and again in Trump, the GP President. It just keeps going down, as more people are tested.
Shutting down travel from China and Europe, and closing the borders ever tighter were the main things to keep new infections from coming in while we work on ameliorating the infection that is already here. And we do that sort of thing better than anybody else, because we are the USA.
But these are now becoming desperate times, thanks to the panic stricken Marxists among us. We wrote about what they are panic stricken over in the Sheer Panic article; they are ever increasingly panicked over Trump remaining in the Presidency, where he may eventually be able to totally uncover and actually prosecute all of their wicked conspiracy and treason. They cannot leave him in office to find them out. That panic is why they cannot stop panicking the American polity over fear of catching the common cold.
People are being warned in many cities to avoid going to ATMs, unless you are armed, or take someone with you, because of the threat of robbers waiting around for victims at ATMs. Many banks are now only allowing drive-through transactions.
We can't go to Mass because our cowardly Archbishop closed all of his Churches. I can't even get a haircut because our buffoon of a governor closed all the barbershops.
They are quarantining the whole population, for crying out loud.
A quarantine, whether self-imposed or state-imposed, is supposed to protect the healthy public from the infected. Now you can argue about whether or how well we might get through this epidemic in the USA via self-quarantine or state-quarantine, but no one can validly argue that the whole nation needs to be shut down.
The only reason for that would be to destroy the American economy and if possible, wreck the reelection of Donald J. Trump, to keep him from ultimately draining the swamp.
Here, this is more of a political virus than a medical one, and here, it is less to be blamed on the Chicoms than on our own Marxist news media.
Wash your hands again, pray another rosary and calmly bide your time.
The only thing Truth has going for Him in this world is us.
The restoration of Truth = Reality in the hearts and minds of men is now totally dependent upon you and me; if we don't do it, it won't get done.
Print, sign and send The Letter, and make our Church Catholic again.
Get behind President Trump, and make America Constitutional again.
With fear and trembling, work out your salvation--Phil 2:12
Seek the Truth; Find the Way; Live the Life.
Please God, and Live Forever.

Right you are! Thank you; I don't know if that was a typo or what, but I have updated with current figures from Coronavirus Update Live. The fatality rate just keeps going down. I like your link, because it provides state-by-state statistics. Thanks again.

You shouldn't call Archbishop Schnurr a coward he had no choice. All Ohio bishops closed masses for the sake of the health of the whole state.

Right. And the governor shut down all business over, so far, 250 infected people and 3 deaths, for a state fatality rate of 1.2%. Just think about that for a moment: 250 infections in the whole population of the state of Ohio, and all businesses are forced to shut down.
Archbishop Schnurr, and no one else, is the sole authority over the Church of Cincinnati. It is his call and his alone whether or not to allow Mass to be offered for the laity in his Church. I don't care what any other bishops do or don't do; I don't care what any panel of Bishops decide; I don't care what any Conference decides; I don't care what any gaggle of "experts" come up with; I don't care what any secular government official of any rank, or any judge in any court might have to say about it.
Archbishop Schnurr is either the sole authority over his particular Church, or he is not. It is his decision and no one else's, and the whole responsibility for the decision rests on him and him alone.
No one in the government, from the President on down, can order Catholic Masses to be halted. Not here. Not in America. Not so long as the Constitution has any meaning whatsoever.
Only Archbishop Schnurr could order his Priests to stop offering Mass for the laity in the Archdiocese of Cincinnati and no one can lay the responsibility for that decision on anyone else's shoulders.
And yes, he did indeed have a choice in the matter.
Never be lukewarm.
Life itself demands passion.
He who is indifferent to God has already forfeited his soul.
He who is indifferent to politics has already forfeited his liberty.
In America, religion is not mere window dressing and citizenship is not a spectator sport.
Do not allow our common destiny as a whole people to just happen without your input.
Get in the fight! Engage!
Seek the Truth; find the Way; live the Life; please God, and live forever.

Enter ye in at the narrow gate: for wide is the gate, and
broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there are who go in
thereat. How narrow is the gate, and strait is the way that leadeth to life:
and few there are that find it! Beware of false prophets, who come to you in
the clothing of sheep, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
Jesus Christ; Matt 7:13-15
"We belong to the Church militant; and She is militant because on earth the powers of darkness are ever restless to encompass Her destruction. Not only in the far-off centuries of the early Church, but down through the ages and in this our day, the enemies of God and Christian civilization make bold to attack the Creator’s supreme dominion and sacrosanct human rights.”--Pope Pius XII
"It is not lawful to take the things of others to give to the poor. It is a sin worthy of punishment, not an act deserving a reward, to give away what belongs to others."--St. Francis of Assisi
Truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.—Winston Churchill
The smallest minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities.—Ayn Rand
