  1. Only 2 factual errors in 1 sentence. Clearly this doesn’t meet the threshold for “fake news”.

  2. The Surgeon General gave an interview and when asked about Trump comments he talked about ‘prepare not panic’ and basically said that Trump playing it down or even as now saying hopefully it will be over by Easter is part of the role of the President, to be hopeful without committing too much and stop people panicking while the medical people get on with preparation. Hope for the best, plan for the worst type thing, except the press seems hell bent on hoping for the worst

  3. Canadian govt announces new streamlined Benefit scheme after 1 million people apply for Employment Insurance (govt benefits scheme) payment in a week.
    New scheme will have an online portal that is expected to launch by April 6th and people should receive money with 10 days of signing up.
    Any bets on the the odds of a payment going out by April 16th and let’s not forget that means if you just lost your job your looking at 3 weeks to see any money at the best.

  4. I once tried to explain lunar eclipses to somebody who had managed to graduate from university with a science degree, and they were utterly convinced that the moon had a shiney side and a dark side, and eclipses were when the dark side faced the earth. Even the old torch-and-two-oranges trick couldn’t convince him.

    I prefer Cadbury




    Yep, SG being very calm and pragmatic, as is Dr Fauci

    “Despite Fauci’s remarks, Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak (D) signed an emergency order hours later banning the use of chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine to treat coronavirus”

    The Left & media wants drugs that could save lives to be ineffective or banned just to spite Trump. What a bunch of sickos

  6. “managed to graduate from university with a science degree”: oh that’s nowt.

    Student: This bit in his paper is ambiguous. What did he mean?
    Me: He’s still at Yale – phone him and ask.
    Student: What about the time difference?
    Me: Five hours.
    Student: Ahead or behind?

  7. I think my favourite was the New York governer saying it’s a disaster and it’s heading everyone’s way and Trump shouldn’t say Easter let’s hope it’s over and then he was demanding everyone send them medical equipment and they promised to return it later if you needed it back.

    Delingpole: Coronavirus — Peter Hitchens Is Right…

    Just like in war, the great coronavirus plague is bringing out the best in people and the worst in people.
    So far, the petty tyrants, the tell-tales, the ignoramuses, the rule-takers and the finger-pointers are having a field day; the more original, clear-eyed thinkers meanwhile, are having to take care about what they say for fear of being judged and found wanting by the self-righteous mob
    There are penalties for being right too far in advance of everyone else. But one day those of us who kept their heads when all about were losing theirs — and blaming it on us — will be vindicated

    Good article, agree

  9. Trawling Word News So You Don’t Have To

    The Fatal Global Pandemic has now infected a staggering 436,159 people (0.0055 of world population) and 19,648 deaths – same as die in UK every 11 days

    ITV & Piers “Haw, Haw” Morgan continue with defeatist Panic Mongering

    1 Same woman was on C4 News on Tuesday. I’d sack her.

    Listen up dear, there are no PPE or test kits for you, demand has rocketed, supply is ramping up. December/January, oh yes, that’s when Trump & BoJo being called racist for warning about Wuhan Flu and anything done, eg bans was racist over-reacting

    2 Free parking implemented before “Haw, Haw” rant, imo no reason to, we’re all equal – free parking for patients too?

    Amid the coronavirus crisis, the media believe you either shut down the economy indefinitely or you want people to die

    When Trump introduced the travel ban he was racist, now he doesn’t care about people’s lives? Left are professional trolls. Trump cures cancer: food shortages expected

  10. Why are media pundits trying to discredit hydroxychloroquine?
    If President Trump is for it, the media is against it, even if it might save American lives

    Left Media endangering peoples lives with lies and scaremongering

    Dr. Anthony Fauci, Coronavirus Task Force member, joins Laura Ingraham answering questions on coronavirus

    Points out problems with models (yipee), Laura not keen on that
    Why more men sick? Dr Fauci ‘We don’t know” – good honest answer
    Laura ‘anti-viral’ chloroquine… It’s not anti-viral but has anti-viral effects, results say it inhibits CV-19 reproduction allowing immune system to win

    Effects of chloroquine on viral infections: an old drug against today’s diseases? (2003)

    Remdesivir and chloroquine effectively inhibit the recently emerged novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV)

    Repeat as Astoundingly Evil How Low Dems/Left Go
    “Despite Fauci’s remarks, Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak (D) signed an emergency order hours later banning the use of chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine to treat coronavirus”

    The Left & media want drugs that could save lives to be ineffective or banned just to spite Trump. What a bunch of evil sickos

  11. Lying media scum are also trying to find and publicise as many deaths of young people as they can.

    Flu kills several hundred young able-bodied people every year–poss via this cytokine storm (sic) mechanism.

    Dep UK Ambassador to Hungary died–37 no underlying. But what treatment was available in Hungary. If ICUs too full he may have died waiting but might other wise pulled through.

    Girl 21 dies– again circs not known.

    If this was a mass death virus the numbers would have been massive months ago.

    Large numbers of the media’s hacks need special desk treatment.

    Christ, Piers really has lost it, which is a bit sad, as he’s often quite sensible on a lot of the more whacko PC type issues.
