No. It's a virus.

We haven't done so great getting a handle on it, either. Sometimes Mother Nature just reminds us who's in charge.

imo

SARS, H1N1, CoronaVirus.

Mother Nature sure likes to remind us that she is only limited to reminding us who's in charge through one particular communist nation...three times in seventeen years...

It is one thing to be a virus and getting caught off guard but it is a different thing when the Government of China deliberately withheld information, arrested Doctors that were trying to inform the world and took from mid-November to late January to do enough to start combating the virus!

I know very well you will disagree and will lecture those like me about how the U.S. did not do enough but when Bloomberg is stating something went wrong you know the Government of China is the one that caused most of this mess!

You can not defend what they did and if you attempt then in my personal opinion you are wrong!

Who made the virus?
It might be a U.S. strain that the Government of China was experimenting with that they lost control of or introduced to the public and lost control of the experiment...

But

It also could be a natural mutation that just happened...

But

That does not excuse China failure in all of this and they should not be given a free pass in this and should be held accountable...

But

How to do it is impossible!

You
No, John Trump hoped on a magical purple device that women and gay men love, and flew over to China and shot a thunderbolt out from his rectum and infected the poor Chinese...

I mean if you are going to say it was that poster at least make it entertaining and just write you...

Now the Virus Spread originated in China and the Government of China failed to contain it and did stuff like arrest Doctor's that were informing society about the threat.

But

You do not care about that at all...

Capitalism caused this pandemic just as it's responsible for countless other iterations of mass, for-profit death over the past 500 years.

How Capitalism Kills During a Pandemic

"The coronavirus pandemic is showing us the many ways in which the relentless drive for profit can be deadly.

"First, pharmaceutical companies could have started to develop a vaccine for the virus years ago.

"The novel coronavirus that is now ravaging the world is actually one of a family of coronaviruses (including SARS and MERS) with which we have long been familiar.

"It would have been possible to begin research on vaccines and cures for coronaviruses in general, giving us a head start on treatments for the current outbreak.

"But pharmaceutical companies did not pursue this research, because the prospect of a cure was not sufficiently profitable."

I voted yes. If I were a conspiracy theorist I'd proclaim as intuited "fact" how COVID-19 is a dry run biological weapon—a first phase global release—and one hell of a first shot in a world economic war between superpowers. The truth is WE just don't know what our intelligence agencies know about the origin, taxonomy or source of this virus. THEY, meaning the people in the know at the highest levels of our military and government, might already have discovered COVID-19 is in fact a bioweapon . . . or not. Who knows? Neither you nor I do, that's for sure. All we can do is speculate. However, on the most personal of levels, hell yes—I blame China. Just stop and think about it for a moment: a "bug" that originated thousands and thousands of miles to the East in some other empire, could damn well kill the person sitting next to your right now, or even the ones you love most. For that reason alone, I and many others I know blame the Chinese communist party. Right about now, in my opinion, the Chinese ought to thanking whoever the hell they pray to that our President is not in a mood to scorch their entire fucking landmass into one contiguous sheet of black glass in retaliation. Can't say I'd be so merciful standing in his shoes.

I do not care that the Chicoms lost control of a dangerous virus accidentally as they researched responses to it in the bio-Weapons lab.

I do care that they lied, lied, and slaughtered tens of thousands of their own good people in a desperate attempt to contain that bioweapon and left the rest of the world blind regarding what exactly we were dealing with.

and they are reopening their wet markets ...if the chicoms truly believed that the virus that shut them down for weeks came from said wet markets why did they open the back up ?? its been rumored that lab animals were sold to wet markets for extra cash after scientist were finished with them .

How do Trump's contributions to Covid-19 control compare to Cuba"s?

(Which are you?)

Cuba uses "wonder drug" to fight coronavirus around the world despite U.S. sanctions

"Cuba has mobilized its medical corps around the world to distribute a new 'wonder drug' that officials there say is capable of treating the new coronavirus despite the United States' strict sanctions that continue to pressure the communist-run island.

"The drug, called Interferon Alpha-2B Recombinant (IFNrec), is jointly developed by scientists from Cuba and China, where the coronavirus COVID-19 disease outbreak first emerged late last year.

"Already active in China since January, the Cuban Medical Brigades began deploying to dozens of nations, providing personnel and products such as its new anti-viral drug to battle the disease that has exceeded 400,000 confirmed cases across the globe.

"As of Tuesday, over 100,000 people have recovered from the infection and more than 18,000 have died."

What was Trump the Capitalist doing last January to inhibit the spread of the coronavirus hoax?

What China did in not informing the world of what was happening, and, not letting the world know that it was highly contagious from person to person was unforgivable. Worse, having W.H.O repeat that bs and run cover for them,

This is akin to having knowledge of a weapon of mass destruction being shipped to 150+ countries around the world that would kill thousands of their citizens, and, force other citizens to stop working and stay at home, and choosing to not tell a soul.

Where did you get the idea coronavirus has never existed?

Cuba has a vaccine.
What's wrong with capitalism, the almighty profit motive, maybe?
