Pence Warns Virus More Lethan Than Flu

By Gage Skidmore Via Wikimedia Commons

Vice President Mike Pence has announced that the coronavirus is more lethal than the flu and we should all prepare for a lot more people to become infected.

According to The Hill:

Vice President Pence on Thursday confirmed that the coronavirus is more lethal than the flu and predicted that the United States can expect “thousands of more cases.”

NBC News’s Savannah Guthrie asked Pence during an appearance on “Today” to confirm that “this is much more lethal than the seasonal flu.”

“It is, Savannah,” Pence responded.

Pence added that global data indicates the virus is a “threat of very serious consequences” for senior citizens with underlying health conditions but not for younger Americans, “particularly children under the age of 15.”

 

Pence would not elaborate on the number he believes will be infected, instead of leaving it to the experts to opine.

There are already more than 18,000 dead this season from the flu (that we have a vaccine for), as opposed to 40 or so dead from Corona. We have a long way to go before Covid-19 rises to the lethal level of 20,000-45,000 who die every year from influenza.

Thank you for that very sensible post, sir. We need more calmer heads to prevail.

On the basis of 30 years bench experience with VSV, Sendai virus, measles virus, HIV-1/AIDS and HHV-6, I offer this simple home remedy to ease the disease course in people already seriously infected with the new Coronavirus COVID-19

Take one teaspoonful of CsCl (cesium chloride) mixed in a glass of water (or better, in a glass of orange juice or tomato juice to hide the saltiness), wait 4-6 hours, then take a half-teaspoonful of KCl (potassium chloride) in juice, or eat a banana. The CsCl “bends” the viral polymerase and slows the viral rate of replication allowing the immune system to catch up. CsCl is currently FDA approved for clinical use (to reduce cachexia in late stage cancer patients), but has a serious side effect: it causes hypokalemia (low blood potassium, with attendant cardiac problems) when taken on a chronic basis. Therefore, patients should not take more than 3 doses of CsCl. The KCl and the banana (which is full of potassium) are taken to rebalance the electrolytes. CsCl and KCL are not prescription items, but are hard to find in pharmacies. They can be ordered online from e.g. Amazon.com. One teaspoonful of CsCl weighs about 19 grams; a half-teaspoonful of KCl weighs about 8 grams. To further boost the immune system, take multiple doses of AirBorne, which can be found in most pharmacies.

This recipe won’t prevent catching COVID-19, it won’t kill the virus, but it might save your life.

Betting on a Virus? Anything can happen. But it’ll die out soon. As long as people keep to themselves, hang out at home, with immediate family. Those that must go to work are taking a chance. BUT IF everyone follows the correct protocols, they should be fine. People with colds should stay ‘away from the work environment, totally.’ This is NOT a time for ‘self diagnosis’.

North Carolina has closed its schools for at least 2 weeks and all events, large and small, in the area have been cancelled. Our colleges are teaching online. I believe we have the right idea and hope to be virus free before long.

I wish the mainstream media wouldn’t make everything sound worse than it is. Yes, it is serious. But the worse they make it sound, the more people panic. Everyone is hoarding toilet paper, water, and hand sanitizer, and our store shelves are empty of these products. It’s not fair to those of us that need them on a regular basis. There are also those from all over the country selling these items at ridiculous prices on Amazon and eBay.

I think it may have been a man made virus in China to get rid of some of its people and hurting Hong Kong. But they covered up and let people fly and that is how it came here. In Fl most ALL are from travel, not people that live here. I hope people take enough precautions to stop passing it on and all should be well quickly. We are now going into spring….so it will die. And I think it will not be around in the fall. We need to keep an exact watch in those places where it is , like China, Iran, Italy and carefully monitor who will come here in the fall…shut them down. And no Americans should go to any place that could have the virus, although by fall they may have made up another one. I think bottom line, they want to destroy America, and I would not be surprised to find out that Soros and Hillary are part of this. DEMS hate America. I think most are demon possessed. GOD bless America. GOD bless TRUMP. 2020

Adelle: You aren’t the only person thinking that. You should hear the men I know how they talk about China making up this virus and it got out of control somehow. They think China was hoping or planning making it worse than the flue. You are not alone in your thinking and I too wouldn’t be surprised if it is a deliberately made up flue aimed for the U.S.

Why would Pence say that this new virus is much worse than our annual flue when eighteen thousand of all ages have died of the flue virtually every year when so far we have fifty something dead from this new virus with Thank God no children. I know the problem is we have no experience with this new virus but a vaccine sooner or later will be found. This year’s flue shot now being said has only a one third protection against this year’s flue. Perhaps our CDC should start looking at our annual flue situation with the high death rate it has and only one third worth of protection.

Anybody that listens to swamp rat pence, who has backstabbed President Treump more then once needs to have his head examined. The guy has never had a real job and has zero point no real world experience. Life long establishment politician. is life experience is akin to Berny Sanders,,,,,Actually bermy has lived on the streets once. Pence has been a sheltered rich kid his whole life. The damn fool is playing right into this uncalled for panic that We the People will have to live with. This shit has got to cease.

And if it isnt more lethal – which seems to be the real evidence – then Pence will be accused of Lying ands throwing America into an unnecessary panic.
