Corona Virus: A Perspective

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY MARCH 11, 2020

         THE LEFT IS SALIVATING OVER WHAT POLITICAL DAMAGE THE CORONA VIRUS MIGHT CAUSE PRESIDENT TRUMP.

         SOME PERSPECTIVE IS HELPFUL. THE VIRUS WAS JUST DISCOVERED IN CHINA ON DECEMBER 30. THE CHINESE GOVERNMENT TRIED TO COVER-UP ITS IMPACT AND FOR A WHILE DENIED ANY U.S. HEALTH EXPERTS INTO THE COUNTRY. UNLIKE PRESIDENT OBAMA, WHO WAITED FOUR MONTHS BEFORE RESPONDING TO THE H1N1 VIRUS THAT KILLED 1,000 AND PUT ANOTHER 20,000 PEOPLE IN HOSPITAL, PRESIDENT TRUMP RESPONDED IMMEDIATELY. HE STOPPED FLIGHTS FROM COUNTRIES AFFECTED BY THE VIRUS, TOUGHENED BORDER SECURITY, ORDERED TEST KITS AND PUT TOGETHER A TEAM OF HEALTH PROFESSIONALS WHO ARE FIGHTING THE VIRUS AND INSTRUCTING US HOW TO STAY SAFE FROM IT.

         THE MEDIA ARE HYPING THE BAD AND MOSTLY IGNORING THE GOOD EFFORTS. A THREAT TO HEALTH SHOULD NOT BE A POLITICAL ISSUE BECAUSE VIRUSES DO NOT DISCRIMINATE AGAINST ONE PARTY OVER ANOTHER. UNFORTUNATELY, SOME UNPRINCIPLED PEOPLE WILL USE ANYTHING FOR POLITICAL GAIN, NO MATTER HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE HARMED.

         PRAYER MIGHT BE SOMETHING WE MIGHT WISH TO CONSIDER. GOD RESPONDS TO IT AND PERHAPS HE MIGHT SOFTEN THE EFFECTS OF THIS VIRUS IF WE WILL ASK HIM FOR HIS HELP. I’M CAL THOMAS.
