John Roberts: Sources are telling Fox the U.S. government has high confidence coronavirus emanated from a virology lab in Wuhan… an intern was infected, who infected her boyfriend… Does that correspond with what you have heard?— August Takala (@RudyTakala) April 15, 2020

.@johnrobertsFox to POTUS tonight: “Multiple sources are telling Fox News that the United States gov’t now has high confidence that, while the Coronavirus is naturally occurring, it emanated from a virology lab in Wuhan…”— Brit Hume (@brithume) April 15, 2020
Well … I can’t wait to see how the flu truthers react to this news.
“EXCLUSIVE: COVID-19 originated in a Wuhan laboratory not as a bioweapon, but as part of China’s effort to demonstrate that its efforts to identify and combat viruses are equal to or greater than the capabilities of the United States, multiple sources who have been briefed on the details of early actions by China’s government and seen relevant materials tell Fox News.
This may be the “costliest government coverup of all time,” one of the sources said.
The sources believe the initial transmission of the virus was bat-to-human, and that “patient zero” worked at the laboratory, then went into the population in Wuhan. …”
“By now, I think it’s very hard to stay human,” says Duca, the E.R. doctor in Bergamo. “You go on, you forget you have a person, a human in front of you. You forget the patient has a life. I think that we do this to protect ourselves. Otherwise, it would be impossible to work every day.” Colombo, his I.C.U. colleague, tells me she goes through an “emotional shutdown,” as she calls it, when she arrives at the hospital. “The first few days, I was crying when I was home,” Brambillasca says. “Then you transform, because you have to do it. You become tough in a few days.
“The first patient hospitalized in New York is finally discharged, nearly a month after his diagnosis. Many have died in the meantime, and many more are uncounted in the Covid-19 death toll because they succumbed at home or weren’t tested. Some others wait days in the E.R. for an inpatient bed, languishing in hallways. Their fates remain unknown. I pass by them when I first arrive at the E.R. and when I leave at the end of the day. Sometimes they are still there the next day. If they are awake, I’m hesitant to make eye contact. I’m too ashamed that after nearly 15 years as a doctor, I can’t do much more for them except put an oxygen mask over their nose and mouth. …”
“The new coronavirus kills by inflaming and clogging the tiny air sacs in the lungs, choking off the body’s oxygen supply until it shuts down the organs essential for life.
But clinicians around the world are seeing evidence that suggests the virus also may be causing heart inflammation, acute kidney disease, neurological malfunction, blood clots, intestinal damage and liver problems. That development has complicated the treatment of the most severe cases of covid-19, the illness caused by the virus, and makes the course of recovery less certain, they said. …”
Maybe we can stop demonizing our doctors and health care workers now?
If the coronavirus is a deadly virus that escaped from the Wuhan virology lab, why were we told for months that it was a small thing like the flu? Why has the virus been downplayed on FOX News for weeks? Why did Donald Trump and the GOP choose to “ride it out”?
Note: It has been obvious to people who aren’t idiots for months now that this isn’t the flu that we are dealing with.
Typhoid Paul has been churning out takes at a record clip. Zman has also said all along the coronavirus is nothing to take seriously.
