Why some people believe the virus is not a threat.

https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/country/us/

Deaths on 9/11/01...2995

Current Deaths in U.S from virus....1996..
....I got the 1996 number from the link at the top..

Those of us who were around knew 9/11 was real..
....We saw the damage and the event itself, the fire, the building collapsing, the firemen coming, the sounds etc..

Why don't people think this virus is as deadly as 9/11?
...The virus has already killed 1000 more than 9/11..Why don't people believe?

answer....We all saw the damage and the fire in New York as it was broadcast around the world.
..............The deaths from the virus are like one at a time, here and there, over there. It is not a joke, but we don't see the overall effect like we did on 9/11. We only see the ...numbers of dead.

People don't connect to those numbers like the towers burning and the damage done.. This is worse, but many do not connect yet. They somehow don't believe this is a real threat. I just read that there were hundreds who showed up for the hospital boat in New York that was docked. Those people were right next to each other. They don't believe the truth of the threat..

....Trump had a signing ceremony where everyone was right next to each other. Was this yesterday? or day before?...But Trump, by having that ceremony, further spread the idea that the threat is not real. Pictures all over the country, of leaders standing close together in the White House..for a signing...What a totally stupid thing to do.. That is how people get the idea this is not a real threat.

The threat is not a building burning down, it is an invisible threat of a virus spreading from person to person, just like Trump standing in front of a ceremony...totally not worried about the message he presents to the
nation....

...Again in simple terms...this is not a tornado approaching that we can see and hear. It is far more insidious and will kill far more because of what it really is: an invisible virus that kills. Trump leads by having people stand close to each other in a ceremony that everyone sees. He had to have that ceremony for his ego...What a fool, what an idiot, and what a friend of death that Donald Trump is and will always be...And having that ceremony proves it beyond doubt.

3. Good point

The cons in my little shithole where we have one death and 13 cases. Think The Deep state is keeping a cure from them. The pResident is trying to get it to them but he's being prevented. And by the way it is part of a plot to take their guns.

4. Some people don't want to believe about the last election. With this issue, some people don't

want to believe that the threat is real. The thinking is similar, the threat is different in my opinion based on different events and different proof...An election is not a virus that kills thousands and tens of thousands.

7. Respectfully Disagree...

Was it not an election that got us this piece of crap that resulted in his incompetence to allow a virus to kill thousands?

2. You've Got A Typo, Stuart

9. Because

The flu kills more people every year than have died from Covid. I tell people this isnít over yet! Letís hope that turns out to be true. I just heard this talking point today - abortion kills more each year. Dear God I hope that doesnít catch on!
