The head of the World Health Organization, Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus announced on Friday, March 13, 2020, that Europe is now the “epicentre” of the Wuhan virus pandemic.
He implored countries to take aggressive measures, while also using community mobilization and social distancing to save lives.
“Do not just let this fire burn,” he advised.
His comments came in the midst of various European countries reporting notable increases in infections and deaths. So far, Italy has recorded its highest death toll in one day.
Reports indicated that there were 250 deaths recorded during the last 24 hours. Now, Italy’s death toll is 1,266, with 17,660 total infections.
Spain, the next country after Italy hardest hit by the Wuhan flu, reported a 50 percent increase in fatalities to 120 on Friday. Infections moved up to 4,231.
Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez announced that a state of emergency will go into effect in Spain on Saturday, March 14, 2020 for two weeks.
More than 132,500 people have been diagnosed with the Wuhan flu in 123 countries across the globe, according to WHO reports.
The total number of deaths has gone up to 5,000. Dr Tedros described this as “a tragic milestone.”
“Europe has now become the epicentre of the pandemic, with more reported cases and deaths than the rest of the world combined, apart from China,” he said.
“More cases are now being reported every day than were reported in China at the height of its epidemic.”
This makes Trump’s previous travel ban from Europe, which he announced on March 11, look like sensible policy.
While political elites were screaming for open borders, Trump took bold action by banning travel from Europe.
This is in stark contrast to globalist Democrats who enjoy virtue signaling and gushing about open borders.
In times like these, such globalist policies could put thousands of Americans’ lives at risk.
Cleveland Indians are Joining in the PC Radicalism by Discussing a Name Change
Even Major League Baseball is not exempt from political correctness.
The Washington Post reported that the Cleveland Indians are in the process of changing their name after the Washington Redskins announced their decision to review a potential name change before the NFL’s 2020 season.
“We are committed to making a positive impact in our community and embrace our responsibility to advance social justice and equality,” the Indians declared in a statement. “Our organization fully recognizes our team name is among the most visible ways in which we connect with the community. We have had ongoing discussions organizationally on these issues. The recent unrest in our community and our country has only underscored the need for us to keep improving as an organization on issues of social justice.”

According to a report from The Athletic, the Indians leadership is expecting to discuss the matter with Native American leaders, fans, players, alumni, and staff within the organization before making a final name change.
The Washington Post pointed out that “The club de-emphasized its “Chief Wahoo” logo in 2016 in favor of the red ‘Block C’ logo.”
“We do have empathy for those who take issue with it,” Indians owner Paul Dolan commented about the logo in 2016. “We have minimized the use of it, and we’ll continue to do what we think is appropriate.”
In the 2018 season, “Chief Wahoo” was eliminated and the team no longer uses the logo.
The degree of cultural radicalism America is going through in 2020 is off the charts.
The Left is moving at breakneck speed in its efforts to transform America in every possible way, while most of the Right stays asleep.
