40 people, all over the age of 50, have died from this in the United States. 36 of which was in one retirement home in Washington. By comparison, the swine flu of 2009 affected 60 million people in the United States, with 300,000 hospitalized and 20,000 that died. Nothing was suspended or postponed and nothing was said about the president then. The things that make you go hmm?

The previous administration declared a public health emergency when there were only 20 confirmed cases of swine flu in April 2009 (wasn't a pandemic until June 2009). 6 months later, after 1,000 deaths and 20,000 hospitalized, a more dire national health emergency was declared. It spread much slower and the mortality rate was much lower than coronavirus. 0.02% mortality rate compared to at least 1%. The CDC estimates that 12,000 were killed by swine flu but lets go with 20,000. The president and others have already cited many times that the common flu kills more than that every year. So coronavirus spreads faster and has a greater chance of resulting in death...and it's still in the early stages with unknowns. It's a more dangerous situation. President Trump must know this, as he just said sports leagues have done them a "great service, actually" by cancelling/postponing events.

You don’t understand how this works. The internet is good for more than Tigerdroppings. There are infectious disease specialists that explain it. On the internet.
