US officials: Foreign disinformation is stoking virus fears

Three anonymous Trump administration officials have reportedly alleged that a foreign disinformation campaign is underway aimed at spreading fear in the country amid the virus pandemic. The officials, however, didn’t specify the source of the campaign. On Sunday, the National Security Council had tweeted that ’Text message rumors of a national #quarantine are FAKE. There is no national lockdown.’

I was so hoping for the laced adrenochrome story to be true: JFK Jr. returns from the dead to remove all taxes and use Tesla’s engineering to give us all free clean energy. You mean that story? Damn.

Stop being afraid. N wash u r hands constantly post touching something ie gas pumping.. Touch screens... Money... Bank cards n credit cards.... Menus.... Door handles..public pens . Public bathroom flushing handles etc etc etc.... Don't touch ur face nor any mucous membrane area before washing.... Just think of every touch of something as if u have just gone to the bathroom.... N for God sake be considerate of ur elders they are why u have the things n freedoms u do... If u are young open doors for them...

Just imagine, if you will, a news media that didn't stoke the greats of the populous to demand severe measures for disease that has less than a 1.7% morality rates (which will drop exponentially once we start testing everyone with symptoms) with only around 100 deaths (in the US). Then imagine again a governing body that actually listened to medical professionals instead of feeding the public panic and giving to the cries of quarantine. The scariest thing about this isn't the disease it's the crazy way in which people, media and government responded to it.
