Gerald Celente: The Coronavirus is Vastly Overhyped, The MSM are Spreading Fear

Well again the Coronavirus is the mainstream media's headline news. “People are dying, cities in China shut down, tens of millions quarantined, the government's in crisis, foreigners are evacuating as the death toll rises, flights are being canceled.” You mentioned equity markets across the glove tanked Monday but they bounced back. While it's difficult to forecast how fast and wide the virus will grow to date, what, about 136 people have died in a nation of 1.4 billion people? I mean come on. And most of the victims were chronically ill before getting the virus. What do you have, about, I think it's like 1.5 million people die a year in car accidents globally? You look at the flu virus in America, what is it, about 60,000 people die of it each year.

They're comparing it now to the SARS outbreak in 2002. Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome. It should be noted back then 800 people died of a world population of 6.281 billion. So, the numbers don't add up. The numbers are tiny. And again, could this get worse? Could it become the flu of the early 1900s? Maybe, I don't know, but right now it's not doing anything in real numbers. So, it seems to be only a temporary hit. Again, it could get worse. Look, when people complain about climate change I say, "Grow up. You're going to be dead before the climate changes. All the poison that they're putting in our food and our water and the air and viruses..." What do they have, Swine Flu virus in China? About 60-70% of a pig population wiped out. What's causing Swine Flu? Couldn't be the way they're raising these things, these big factories with all the chemicals and crap and antibiotics they pump into them.

Then I'm thinking, the Chinese, they eat a lot of pork, don't they? Oh, this is transmitted from animals to people. Could anything happen like that? I mean as I said, they're poisoning us a million different ways so who knows how far it's going to go but right now as I see it, it's overblown.
