CDC: The Question Isn't If We'll Have a Coronavirus Outbreak, But When

Does everyone remember the AKSHUALLY brigade of the media telling us three weeks ago that this was no big deal and AKSHUALLY not nearly as dangerous as the flu?

Enemies of the People.

Liberals -- including globalist NeverTrump GOPers -- are such religious maniacs on their Holy Doctrine of Open Borders that they'll gladly risk thousands of US deaths before they'll countenance travel restrictions.

"It's not so much a question of if this will happen any more, but rather more a question of exactly when this will happen and how many people in this country will have severe illness," Dr. Nancy Messonnier, the head of Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, said during a media briefing Tuesday.

Headlines:

Iran's Health Minister gives press conference to downplay the dangers of cornoavirus; The health minister is himself diagnosed with coronavirus shortly thereafter.

Iran's deputy HEALTH minister tests positive for coronavirus after looking shaky and unwell while he played down outbreak's dangers - as death toll rises to 15 and cases are exported around the Middle East

Iran's deputy health minister Iraj Harirchi was placed into quarantine after testing positive for coronavirus

Comes a day after he sweated his way through a press conference while insisting outbreak is under control

Iran has officially declared 95 cases and 15 deaths, but there are fears that the true number is much higher

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo urged Iran to 'tell the truth' and cooperate with health officials over the virus

Coronavirus experts begin panicking, saying that our current containment strategies will fail.

A surge in untraceable clusters of new coronavirus patients around the globe has caused experts to warn that 'containment methods are not going to work'.

In South Korea, Singapore and Iran, clusters of infections are leading to a jump in cases of the new viral illness outside China.

...

'A number of spot fires, occurring around the world is a sign that things are ticking along, and what we are going to have here is probably a pandemic,' said Ian Mackay, who studies viruses at Australia's University of Queensland.

Italy is now on the verge of a pandemic.

Italy's coronavirus death toll climbs to 11: Four more die as number of new infections increases 45% in one day and panic-buyers strip supermarket shelves bare in Palermo

Italy confirmed four more deaths from coronavirus on Tuesday, bringing the total number of fatalities to 11

Four new deaths were announced in Vento and Lombardy - two men and two women, the youngest was 76

Meanwhile the number of cases in the south climbed to three, all of them in the Sicilian capital of Palermo

All three infected travelled to the south from the north before a lock-down was put into place last week

Italy confirmed 95 new cases bringing the total to 322 as virus jumped to Austria, Croatia and Switzerland

Tom Cruise had planned to shoot the next Mission: Impossible movie in Italy for three weeks. But filming has been halted due to the outbreak.

Illegal border crossers are going to be a major vector of disease in the US -- obviously, no one sneaking across the border is going to wait in quarantine for two weeks. No one gets a coronavirus test before a night crossing.

And there are going to be outbreaks in illegal immigrant communities, which will then spread to the general population.

But the important thing is to pretend we don't know that and all join together in Pandemic Solidarity. We must share each other's deadly diseases equally -- that's the only Just and Equitable way in this New World Order of unhinged transnational progressivism/radical corporate archlibertarianism.

Nothing -- not even the potential for tens of thousands of deaths -- must stand in the way of the free movement of people and goods across fictitious "national borders."

That said, I want Trump to be more overtly pro-active that he's being. I don't want this downplayed or soft-played.

As Tom consiglierte said to mob boss Leo in Miller's Crossing: "I'd worry less if I thought you worried more."

Now who caused all this?

One man has a theory.
