There is nothing to worry about, China is professional at spreading viruses to the rest of the world.

“Wuhan Flu” #2 incoming

…..nope…. sigh…. another thing the libs want to flail about

No worried for us. No Vaccines. Trying to keep health.
We were out shopping, can’t remember where, the week of Thanksgiving, and there was a child coughing up a storm. Managed to stay clear of her, poor thing, and hope she does not have White Lung Syndrome.

Whatever Fauci says, believe the opposite

According to recent research a lot of the Covid cases were actually bacterial pneumonia. I recall that was what the Italian nurse treating the spring break college kids back in spring of 2020 said was going on not some mysterious “virus”. And they are trying to scare us by saying “white lung syndrome” which is a form of bacterial pneumonia. Fool us once, fool us twice… you know the drill.

Idk about white lung syndrome, but it definitely sounds racist !

From Francois Balloux on X/Twitter:

“A few comments on Mycoplasma pneumoniae.
It is an atypical bacterium as it has no cell wall. It causes generally mild respiratory infections (“walking pneumonia”). There’s no good reason to refer to it as “white lung syndrome”.

Mycoplasma pneumoniae infections happen all year round with a peak in winter. There is also a ~3-7 year periodicity, with a bigger epidemic roughly every ~4 year. This pattern predates the Covid-19 pandemic and has been observed over the past decades.

There have been big epidemic waves observed in several parts of the world, starting in South Korea and China. It is likely those may happen in many, if not most, countries in the Northern hemisphere over the coming months. The main reason is twofold.

First, circulation of Mycoplasma has been reduced during the pandemic and hence fewer people, in particular young kids, have acquired immunity to it over the last 3.5 years.

Second, the last big wave of Mycoplasma happened 4 years ago in the 2019/2020 winter. Thus, as Mycoplasma pneumoniae epidemics tend to peak about every fourth year, we might have been up for a big wave this winter, even in the absence of the Covid-19 pandemic.”

This is not a novel disease that would cause a pandemic.

Now ask yourself why you have to go to Twitter to find this out, instead of mainstream news,

Because the MSM is just a mouthpiece of the current administration but this has been apparent for years

Captain Bebops December 2, 2023 - 2:50 PM - 2:50 PM

Even the CDC and WHO have said there is no cause for alarm. But I guess about anything mentioned along this line sets some people off.

Badge1104 December 1, 2023 - 12:49 PM - 12:49 PM

Oh my! oh my!
What are we going to do? I guess we better lock down, wear a mass while we shelter alone, and get a new vaccine! Oh there isn’t one yet? Oh my.. oh my.. what are we going to do?!
You know it’s global warming at the root cause of all this and Ronald Reagan is still to blame!
* sarcasm!*
( Im pretending to be a liberal democrat)

Old Timer December 1, 2023 - 12:59 PM - 12:59 PM

I think they are trying to cause a panic again.If we got every vaccine they wanted us to get we would be in bad shape.I will never get another Covid vaccine again to many health related issues that I didn’t have before the vaccine.Just be cautious.

Original G December 1, 2023 - 1:27 PM - 1:27 PM

Should a pool be started as to date high functioning
liberals deem “white lung” as racist ? ? ? ? (SC.A)

Ricardoh December 1, 2023 - 1:34 PM - 1:34 PM

Many civilization disappeared from the earth never to be seen again. I think the Chinese were involved. Well maybe not but I wouldn’t put it past a virus.

Angry American December 1, 2023 - 1:41 PM - 1:41 PM

just as much as I am worried about getting hit by a damn meteor. or voting liberal……

BORbeliever December 1, 2023 - 1:47 PM - 1:47 PM

First, this is clearly all Trump’s fault. Not sure how, but it is. Also, China has released a new virus just in time for the next presidential election. We’ll be locked down and will have to mail in our ballots. All part of the playbook.

Angry American December 2, 2023 - 5:38 PM - 5:38 PM

we call this the election variant.

Dr. Jellyfinger December 1, 2023 - 3:07 PM - 3:07 PM

Well….. I wasn’t worried…. but now I am!
I was blissfully unaware until Claycord dropped this worry bomb on us!
We’re all gonna die!!! …….. eventually.

The Fearless Spectator December 1, 2023 - 4:44 PM - 4:44 PM

The root cause of “White Lung Syndrome” is the “Desire for Mail-in Ballot Syndrome”.

Abe December 1, 2023 - 5:40 PM - 5:40 PM

If the government does anything well, it’s propaganda.
Fear mongering at its finest.

Atticus Thraxx December 1, 2023 - 7:51 PM - 7:51 PM

White Lungs Matter.

MAGA SAM December 2, 2023 - 3:54 PM - 3:54 PM

White Lives Matter ✊🏻
That would look great painted on the street. The city should pay for it ASAP.

El D December 2, 2023 - 12:31 AM - 12:31 AM

No. Reputable experts say the uptick in respiratory viruses and pneumonia is not caused by any new pathogens. It’s just the usual suspects – flu, RSV, coronavirus. The only people freaking out about this are idiot politicians and media outlets looking to stir up some controversy. But if you are concerned, then follow the advice of health officials: stay up-to-date on vaccines, wash your hands, and wear a mask in crowded indoor spaces.

Exit 12A December 2, 2023 - 8:18 PM - 8:18 PM

This type of alarmism exists to simply to scare the public.

Angry American December 3, 2023 - 1:55 PM - 1:55 PM

Politics of fear.

Just saying December 4, 2023 - 5:58 AM - 5:58 AM

It’s not white lung syndrome it’s the election year syndrome, hoax #2
