The Fake News about the Coronavirus being the next Black Death has achieved what Russiagate could not do - it has tanked the world's economy and created the greatest threat to Trump's presidency... Although barley a few hundred have the disease in America, we lose 150 people a day from the FLU! Most people know that the flu can kill. Indeed, the so-called Spanish flu killed 50 million people in 1918 – more than were killed in the first world war. But did you know that the common cold kills many people? Can you really catch your death?
Rhinovirus causes about half of all colds, but other viruses can cause one or more of the symptoms of a cold, including adenovirus, influenza virus, respiratory syncytial virus and parainfluenza virus. A cold can also have more severe symptoms in the very young and the very old. Older people are more likely to develop a more serious infection compared with adults or older children. And people who smoke – or who are exposed to second-hand smoke – are also more likely to get a cold and have more severe symptoms. Sound familiar????
The common cold kills more people each year than we have lost to the Coronavirus, yet no panic!
