  1. The dumb gets dumber. Your college kid has a greater chance of dying from alcohol poisoning, suicide or a car accident than this stupid virus. They are in the prime of their lives and can easily counter the Corona Cold. According to the CDC the median age of Covid deaths is 78 and the average life expectancy of an American is 78. Nuff, said. Stop believing the click bait media with their panic and hysteria. Believe in Dr. Scott Atlas and virology 101.
