Americans are coming together in this time of social distancing, but not in a dangerous, physical way. Instead, they are coming together to tackle the COVID-19 pandemic as a team.
First things first – social distancing is the ammunition and the American people are the infantry. We need to continue to apply cover fire against coronavirus in order to allow our medical professionals to work, unabated, and at their maximum capacity. In order to keep from overwhelming the hospital system, we’re going to need to stay away from one another until the CDC says otherwise.

Another field hospital has been dismantled after treating exactly zero patients during the COVID-19 scamdemic. The $21 million hospital was apparently all for show, smoke in mirrors, as not one single patient needed it.
The Brooklyn field hospital, authorized by Mayor Bill de Blasio’s administration at a cost of approximately $21 million, closed without seeing one patient. The Brooklyn Cruise Terminal in Red Hook was one of several sites across the city to be converted into a medical facility to try to manipulate the public into more fear. While the plan in Red Hook was announced on March 31, one day after the U.S Navy hospital ship Comfort arrived in New York Harbor, the facility did not open until May 4, according to Pennlive

The development comes as the World Health Organisation declared the outbreak a pandemic and a number of countries announced tough measures to combat the infectious disease. The United States has suspended travel from 26 European countries, while Italy has toughened a lockdown, closing all shops, except supermarkets and pharmacies.

A doctor from Stanford University’s Hoover Institution is calling for the end of the current lockdown procedures taking place across America in response to the Wuhan virus outbreak.
Scott W. Atlas, is the David and Joan Traitel Senior Fellow at Stanford University’s Hoover Institution and the former chief of neuroradiology at Stanford University Medical Center, believes that “Leaders must examine accumulated data to see what has actually happened, rather than keep emphasizing hypothetical projections; combine that empirical evidence with fundamental principles of biology established for decades; and then thoughtfully restore the country to function.”
by Chris Tomlinson, Breitbart:
Two economics experts have predicted that the Chinese coronavirus could lead to the end of the euro currency — and the potential end of the European Union itself.
Belgian economist Professor Paul De Grauwe said that if the European Union does not show solidarity with member-states like Italy that have been hit hardest by the coronavirus, “the whole European project will disappear.”
by Alasdair Macleod, GoldMoney:
This was the week when investors began to take the coronavirus seriously as it began to spread across America. Europe had already panicked over Italy, where there are now about 4,000 cases reported and 148 deaths. America has a problem in that it lacks a free to use public healthcare system and is unprepared for a pandemic.
As can be seen in our headline chart, gold rose strongly after Friday’s sell off, gaining $92 this week to trade at $1677 in early European trade this morning. Silver gained 70 cents to $17.34.
Did the 5G rollout in Wuhan damage the innate cellular defense cells of the population, putting the people at risk of complications and death from coronavirus?
by Lance D Johnson, Natural News:
Scientists have been sounding the alarm about the dangers of 5th generation wireless technology. Some countries have heeded the warning about wireless radiation and the harmful effects of EMFs. China, on the other hand, has completely ignored all warnings and has proceeded to unleash 5G faster than any other nation. In fact, China rolled out 5G in the province of Wuhan in October 2019. Just two months later, the city became afflicted by a new kind of coronavirus named CoVid-19. How did a formerly benign class of virus become so opportunistic in such a short amount of time? Why is the death rate so high at the epicenter of the outbreak?
by Michael Snyder, End Of The American Dream:
Have you noticed that people are a lot more emotional these days? People are angry about the lockdowns, people are angry because others are not “properly” observing the social distancing rules, people are angry about losing their jobs, people are angry about the shortages in the stores, and more than anything else people are angry at our politicians. Even before COVID-19 came along, I was repeatedly warning my readers that anger was rising to a very dangerous level in this country, and now this pandemic has made things far worse. If you doubt this, just log on to Facebook and read some of the “discussions” that people are having about this coronavirus. Many of those “discussions” rapidly devolve into venom spewing contests, and sometimes this is still true even if people are theoretically on the same side. There is so much anger and frustration out there right now, and it is only going to get worse the closer that we get to election day.
by Wolf Richter, Wolf Street:
In January, consumers carried on in hunky-dory land.
Consumer spending accounts for roughly 70% of the economy as measured by GDP. When and how will the reaction by consumers to the coronavirus – dollars spent and not spent – become visible in the overall economic data? That’s the question we’ll try to find answers to going forward. But according to the Bureau of Economic Analysis today, in January, American consumers in aggregate were still in hunky-dory land.
from The Waking Times:
Researchers have still not been able to identify the original source of the COVID-19 coronavirus. When the outbreak began, initial reports suggested that the virus jumped from an animal to a human in a Wuhan meat market because many of the first cases were connected with the market in some way.
Scientists are still divided on this theory, but some studies have suggested that there were a significant number of early patients who had no contact with the market, and that it could have been spreading silently among citizens of Wuhan before it entered the crowded market where it had an opportunity to infect more hosts and spread more widely. This is one of the numerous different theories that experts have been debating in the months since the virus was officially recognized.
