Here is a link for an article about Coronavirus (and other issues) by articles.mercola.com that is entitled, How Does COVID-19 Compare to the Spanish flu?: https://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2020/05/02/how-does-covid-19-compare-to-the-spanish-flu.aspx?cid_source=dnl&cid_medium=email&cid_content=art1HL&cid=20200502Z1&et_cid=DM521286&et_rid=863147988.
Did you watch the video that was in the article? Here is a link for that video that is on that article that was also posted on YouTube that is entitled: COVID-19... Spanish flu: a warning from history: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=562&v=3x1aLAw_xkY&feature=emb_logo.
Did you read that article? I hope you did. I will share some of it with you (I copied/pasted):
- While COVID-19 meets the technical definition of a pandemic, the death toll is nowhere near that of earlier serious pandemics that would legitimately justify the extraordinary measures being deployed by the U.S. government
- An estimated 75 million to 200 million people in Eurasia and as much as 60% of the European population in rural areas were wiped out by the Black Death (bubonic plague) between 1347 and 1351
- The Spanish flu (swine flu), which hit during World War I in 1918, infected 500 million people worldwide, killing an estimated 50 million, or 2.7% of the global population
- Using the higher of two prominent COVID-19 trackers, 129,100 people had died, globally, from COVID-19 as of the afternoon on April 15, 2020. Based on a global population of 7.8 billion, 129,100 deaths amount to 0.000016% of the global population
- Mid-March predictions said COVID-19 would kill 2.2 million Americans if allowed to run its course. April 8, 2020, the Murray Model downgraded the threat to 60,000 dead by August, which is lower than the death toll for the seasonal flu of 2017/2018
While COVID-19 meets the technical definition1 of a pandemic (i.e., “an epidemic occurring worldwide, or over a very wide area, crossing international boundaries and usually affecting a large number of people”), the death toll is nowhere near that of earlier serious pandemics2 that would legitimately justify the extraordinary measures being deployed by the U.S. government and others around the globe.
Please realize that I receive e-mail articles from Dr. Mercola... so I do believe he is knowledgeable about many items that can affect people.
After all, I pray, because I do believe we all need to be in good health.
Thinking about that, made me think about 3 John 1:2, " '.
Yes, I believe our health can succeed when God takes care of us.
The best love we have isn't from anyone here on earth.
The best love we have is from God... who loves us... when we've become a born again Christian... by gaining salvation and everlasting life by trusting in/believing upon our Lord, Jesus Christ... and then repenting of our sin... and after... getting baptized... as we can read about... in God's Word, the Bible.
If you do that, God will truly love you.
I am thankful.
Thank You, Lord!
Until next time...
