    U.S. Vice President Mike Pence is now in charge of the U.S. gov't. actions to fight CoViD-19.
    VP Pence does not "believe" in evolution. He states "creationism" should be taught in schools as part of the science curriculum. He has announced smoking is safe, just media hysteria.
    He has ordered that all official government statements from all agencies must be cleared by his office.
    Source: Just google his name and evolution or creationism. Lots of citations.

    At this point, I am less concerned about origin of the virus and more concerned about lack of testing kits. WHO provided them to 60 countries but US refused to have them. Instead, CDC is using testing kits made by the company partially owned by Stable Genius:

    First of all If you don't have an Uncle that attended MIT like Trump's Uncle did, then there's no possible way that you could know more about this stuff than Trump knows.

    "Trump: You know, my uncle was a great person. He was at MIT. He taught at MIT for, I think, like a record number of years. He was a great super genius. Dr. John Trump. I like this stuff. I really get it. People are surprised that I understand it. Every one of these doctors said, 'How do you know so much about this? ' Maybe I have a natural ability. Maybe I should have done that instead of running for president."

    Eating wild animals makes sense if you live in the wild but urban people should concentrate on domestic beasts even though there's no guarantee that they are germ free. Bats and pangolins should be avoided like armadillos and skunks don't you think?

    Bats breed and lives in caves. They have been living and breeding diseases and viruses for years. Caves have tons of slime, feces, and germs mutations. I can believe it. Yet ppl go into and visits these caves barefooted, whether camping or trying to survive or explore. Imagine how many ppl get hurt in there. Scrapes, cuts, etc…..

    the over assumption is that someone slaughter a bat and mishandled it but it never suspected that someone with biological weaponry ambition had experimented with bats as the media, and subsequently, intentionally/inadvertantly released it to a person-zero !! the weaponry lab is only a few blocks from the now culpable "market"

    70 million people died during the Spanish flu during a population of 900 million. During a time people were riding mules. During a time the population lived in rural towns. The Spanish flu did not live of surfaces for up to nine days. The Spanish flu was immediately symptomatic.
    Today we have 7.4 billion people living in populated cities and traveling worldwide.
    Expect by the middle of next year we will be burying 500 million people… think about that Mr Trump!

    Bats been around as long as human had. For thousands of year people have been eaten all kind of animals both from domestic farming and from the wild. Why was it that corona virus just suddenly appear now? My guess was it was biologically created by human to control the human population. It got out of control and now all country have to find a way to control it.

    This trade war Trump started disrupted the food supply to China. Now that China is not buying any more food from the "world's bread box", the Chinese must feed themselves. Well….bats are now on the menu. Disease spread from bats to humans resulting in Corona Virus. This is all Trump's fault for starting an unnecessary trade war that has gotten America nowhere.

Ty Russia and Saudi Arabia needed that oil to crash down. Bet the banks are loving Frakking now. Goodbye FED .

    The first covid-19 virus case is reported in Wuhan,but the virus of covid-19 may not originated in Wuhan China.It's necessary to leave it to Genetic Scientists to research where did it originate from.And No matter where it originated,most of people are victims.In fact,the whole China has carried out the most strict control measures, even asking everyone not allowed to leave their own house.So that how the epidemic spread to the whole world,or only God knows.Whatever someone said the coronavirus originated in Wuhan virus lab or originated in eating bats,all these things has no evidence and aren't common sense.
