(Natural News) Depending on which media source you listen to, the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) global pandemic is either the worst thing to hit the world since the infamous Spanish Flu, or it’s really no different than the seasonal flu. And Breitbart News seems to be leaning in the direction of the latter scenario.
According to the conservative-angled news outlet, President Donald Trump is correct in trying to stop the hysteria and reopen the United States for business. Because the economy won’t last more than a few weeks with this type of shutdown, Americans face an even worse crisis from that than they do the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), Breitbart contends.
Allowing a long-term economic crisis to unfold in order to maintain the current public health restrictions “could be even more devastating to the well-being of the American people,” Breitbart‘s Cliff Sims writes.
“So, while it is important that the President continue receiving advice from medical experts, as he has been with Dr. Anthony Fauci and others, his recent comments make it clear that he is also smartly taking into account the human impact of the economic decisions he is facing,” Sims goes on to say.
