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.
Citing a mathematical model put out by the University of Oxford's Evolutionary Ecology of Infectious Disease group, Sims sides with the notion that fewer than one in 1,000 people infected with the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) end up needing hospitalization. Because this number is so low, shutting down pretty much everything doesn't make much sense, he says.
But is this data actually correct? According to Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, the United States is currently on track to see more than 100,000 fatalities, not just hospitalizations, for the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) by early June.
If this ends up happening as Adams is predicting -- and he was ahead of the real numbers by more than a month with his early projections -- then we will end up having a much bigger problem on our hands than Sims is projecting. We're fully aware of the fact that President Trump wants to ensure a healthy and strong economy, which is important. But could he be overlooking the true severity of the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis in the process?
Listen below to The Health Ranger Report as Adams talks about how an economic collapse from the pandemic would allow the private Federal Reserve central bank to eliminate all cash and replace it with a Mark of the Beast digital currency:
On the one hand, a temporary quarantine, if done right, could nip this thing in the bud and allow for a full economic recovery, as much as is possible considering the fact that Congress and the White House are injecting trillions of dollars in new debt into the system.
On the other hand, if not done right, or for not long enough, temporary quarantines could end up doing a whole lot of nothing while still crippling the economy for the foreseeable future.
So, what's the ideal solution, here? There perhaps isn't one. The current numbers suggest that about 45 per one million people are dying in New York, while in other areas that number is substantially less. Each area of the country is implementing its own quarantine and lockdown measures at different times, so it's difficult to really project where this thing is headed.
According to Adams, the worst is still yet to come. And rather than open up the economy and call it a day, he thinks it would be wiser to keep the lockdowns in place in order to prevent "an explosion in new cases" in the coming days and weeks.
