TOTAL BS: Liberal Reporter at White House Press Briefing Suggests 11 Million Americans will Die from Coronavirus (VIDEO)

A liberal reporter at Friday’s White House coronavirus press conference attacked GOP Senator Ron Johnson for telling a reporter to keep the coronavirus in perspective.

The liberal media and World Health Organization has created an international panic after mistakenly announcing the coronavirus has a 3.4% mortality rate.

As of Friday morning 3-20-2020:
** There are 16,067 confirmed cases of coronavirus in the US.
** There are 219 deaths blamed on the coronavirus.
** The current mortality rate from confirmed cases is 1.3%
** There are no official numbers that include the number of citizens who had the virus but were not sick enough to seek medical attention.
** There are an estimated 22,000 flu deaths and 36 million cases in the US each year.

Senator Johnson told Craig Gilbert from the Journal Sentinel that we must keep the coronavirus in perspective.
In other words, you don’t collapse an economy over 218 deaths in a population of 327 million.

Today during his question this liberal reporter claimed the US will see 11 million people die.
Again, we currently have a total of 218 deaths.
This is the type of BS the liberal media keeps hurling at the American people.
