The Trump administration is informing Americans that they need to brace for “a very painful two weeks” that could end with hundreds of thousands of deaths due to the ongoing coronavirus outbreak.
The White House made the somber announcement during Tuesday’s meeting of the coronavirus task force. President Trump is urging Americans to remain under lockdown until at least Apr. 30, as public life slows down to a standstill.
“The surge is coming, and it’s coming pretty strong,” Trump said during the public briefing.
The estimates, which are based off of recommendations from National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases director Dr. Anthony Fauci and other top experts, are that between 100,000 and 240,000 Americans will ultimate die of coronavirus with most of the damage coming in the next couple weeks. They warn that there could be 1.5 and 2.2 million deaths if drastic measures are not taken.
“It is absolutely critical for the American people to follow the guidelines,” Trump said at the briefing, referring to his administration’s “30 Days to Slow the Spread” plan. “It’s a matter of life and death.”
While Trump has somewhat downplayed the coronavirus threat in recent weeks, he is now urging Americans to behave with the utmost caution during the most dangerous days of the pandemic that are soon to come.
“This is going to be a rough two week period,” Trump said. “As a nation we’re going to have a really rough two weeks. Our strength will be tested and our endurance will be tried.”
“This could be a hell of a bad two weeks. This is going to be a very bad two or maybe even three weeks. This is going to be three weeks like we’ve never seen before,” he added.
Trump had previously said that he intended to re-open the country by Apr. 12, hoping that the nation could return to normalcy by Easter Sunday. He was forced to revise his optimistic projections in lieu of the projections.
“There’s no magic bullet, there’s no magic vaccine or therapy. It’s just behaviors,” said Dr. Deborah Birx, adding that only social distancing and proper medical care can change “the course of the viral pandemic.”
“As sobering a number as that it is, we should be prepared for that,” Fauci said of the prospect of hundreds of thousands of coronavirus-related deaths. “No one is denying that we are going through a very difficult time right now.”
The President was quick to praise the health care workers who are on the front lines of this war against an invisible enemy.
“I watched the doctors and nurses walking into the hospital [in Elmhurst, Queens] this morning and it is like military people going into battle, going into war. The bravery is incredible,” Trump said of health care employees working in the area in which he grew up. “If I were wearing a hat, I’d rip that hat off so fast and I would say, ‘You people are just incredible.'”

Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds Refuses to Implement Widespread Mask Mandates and Bar Closures Over Newest COVID-19 Panic
Another Republican governor with courage.
Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds (R) is refusing to implement Draconian mask mandates and bar closures despite recent reports that cases are surging throughout the state.
According to a report in The Guardian, cases of COVID-19 are spiking throughout Iowa. Ames and Iowa City, two college towns, are reportedly being hit hard due to young people refusing to live their lives in fear.
“Community transmission continues to be high in rural and urban counties across Iowa, with increasing transmission in the major university towns,” a fear-mongering report from the White House coronavirus task force warned. “Mask mandates across the state must be in place to decrease transmission.”
Reynolds thus far is not bucking to political pressure that would lock down the state, crippling small businesses and making a mockery of the Bill of Rights and Constitution. She has only closed bars in six counties throughout the state while just “strongly encouraging” people to wear masks, arguing that they are “not a silver bullet.”
“I still believe it’s up to the governors in the various states to make those decisions,” Reynolds said in her refusal to let the feds usurp her authority.
Reynolds believes that it is “social activity among young adults” that is causing the virus to spread more quickly. Young people are the least likely to die from COVID-19, with new figures released by the CDC indicating that the vast majority of people who died from the virus had serious comorbidities. The facts, however, are not stopping the fear cultists from arguing for another shutdown.
“Our numbers are clearly terrifying,” said University of Iowa associate professor Naomi Greyser to CNN. “They’re really scary and my students are scared.” Greyser and other academics hope to get paid by the taxpayer for not doing their jobs this school year because of COVID-19.
Republican U.S. Sen. Joni Ernst of Iowa is casting doubt on the numbers that are being reported by medical professionals.
“These healthcare providers and others are reimbursed at a higher rate if Covid is tied to it, so what do you think they’re doing?” Ernst said.
Although the Iowa Medical Society called Ernst’s comments “incredibly disappointing,” there have been many reports of case numbers being exaggerated or falsified throughout the country, as Big League Politics has noted:
Many states are inflating their reports of COVID-19 cases by counting positive antibody tests among those who have the illness, according to a report from Nicole Saphier, M.D…
This has reportedly resulted in people being counted twice due to testing positive for COVID-19 and then testing positive for having antibodies.
Making the situation even more of a cluster, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have claimed that antibody tests are wrong at least half of the time.
“Serologic test results should not be used to make decisions about grouping persons residing in or being admitted to congregate settings, such as schools, dormitories, or correctional facilities,” the CDC wrote in their guidelines.
“Serologic test results should not be used to make decisions about returning persons to the workplace,” they continued.
“In most of the country, including areas that have been heavily impacted, the prevalence of SARS-CoV-2 antibody is expected to be low, ranging from less than 5% to 25%, so that testing at this point might result in relatively more false positive results and fewer false-negative results,” the CDC determined.
The Republicans of Iowa are showing the backbone that is needed to prevented America from permanently losing all of her liberties due to COVID-19 mass hysteria.
