Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, July 08, 2020

Good morning. President Trump is pressuring schools to reopen in the fall. Civil rights groups are criticizing Facebook. And the virus outbreak in the U.S. Sunbelt is worse than in any country. There is no country in the world where confirmed coronavirus cases are growing as rapidly as they are in Arizona, Florida or South Carolina. The Sun Belt has become the global virus capital. The only countries with outbreaks as severe as those across the Sunbelt are Bahrain, Oman and Qatar " three Middle Eastern countries with large numbers of low-wage migrant workers who are not citizens. These workers often live in cramped quarters, with subpar social services, and many have contracted the virus.

@#1 ... Only gonna make the autumn that much worse. ...

I do not yet want to think about the autumn/winter with both COVID-19 and the seasonal flu.

As I said a few days ago, I doubt if the Holidays 2020 are going to be a happy time. The holiday season starts about four months from now. Currently, we are in worse shape than we were four months ago.

The sunbelt leads the world in ignorance and belief in mythologies.

Americans,are STOOOPID. The deep south is beyond stupid. They mistake public health measures for assaults on their freedumbs. Trump panders to this stupidity like an evil puppeteer.

America is ------. The virus will kill and maim far more people here than anywhere else because of this.

Public health should be apolitical.

Trump is an evil and foolish person.

Communicable diseases thrive where ignorance thrives. Is anyone surprised at the skyrocketing number of cases in Florida? Not that my home State of California has anything to brag about either. Our local ICUs are completely filled.
