WHO The kind of cash the US gives these crooks they should be able to do a little more than raise the risk alerts. They'd probably have to give up some of those expensive perks. WHO and trump said coronavirus only hoax and fear WHO Honestly. This man makes my blood boil. Clearly, the 'Learning English Grammar' books he still owes us money for was a total waste of time. He should have focused more on the 'Learn English And Don't Sound Like A ****' series.

WHO WHO WHO . Able to tell the world the source yet. No point in praising China’s efforts with all three presenters, when China made no efforts in releasing important info to the world on time if at all. WHO WHO has lost all credibility in my opinion.

Trump puts Mike Pence in charge of response to coronavirus, says US risk 'remains very low'President Trump says that the risk to the American people from the deadly coronavirus “remains very low.” “We’re ready to adapt and we’re ready to do whatever we have to as the disease spreads, if it spreads.” About to become high Why?

Shame on you WHO WHO: ...Länder müssen verstehen, dass sie ALLES versuchen müssen, um COVID19 einzudämmen - das nicht zu tun, ist unverantwortlich, wird Menschen töten jensspahn ja, wir können das. Zu spät ist es, wenn 10% der Bevölkerung infiziert ist. Ohne Eindämmung wird es „jeder“ (WHO)

Democratic Leaders Willing to Risk Party Damage to Stop Bernie SandersWASHINGTON -- House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Sen. Chuck Schumer, the minority leader, hear constant warnings from allies about congressional losses in November if the party nominates Bernie Sanders for president. Democratic House members share their Sanders fears on text-messaging chains. Bill Clinton Lol they should cause theyll lose almost all independent voters Unfucking believable, this far in they want to screw everything up, and do whatever they can to make sure Trump still wins what the hell are these people thinking. Maybe if they thought about uniting behind Sanders instead of sabotaging him, he would have a much better chance And this is why we’ll get 4 more years of emperor trump. Get it together people.
WHO You little c*nt. I'd say resign, but l know your kind well enough to know this is not incompetence as much as it is design, and anyone replacing you would have just as filthy a character. WHO Fucking bullshit, Coronavirus is mild flu and as normal people with weakened immune systems or lung issues suffer or die, there is something else that WHO and the authories of every country are not sharing because the majority of people do not die of mild flu!
WHO Oh wow. Sherlock. WHO Containment has failed sir. Wake up! WHO HYPE— WHO Alright I’m going to level with you all! WHO fuckwho WHO If one of the quarantine centers set up on a US military base can't contain it...... WHO Well I hear the admin may lower taxes which should contain the virus WHO
Global funds cut equity exposure in turbulent February, eye virus risk: Reuters pollGlobal funds changed course in February and recommended a cut to equity allocati... Eye virus. What’s this. Another one?! There's an eye virus now?
WHO Containment is absolutely positively not possible. We are so far past that. Window of opportunity closed 3 weeks ago if not sooner. WHO Just a week ago WHO was refusing to call it a pandemic. These clowns are dangerous frauds. WHO Not when the POTUS calls it a hoax. WHO It's time for the Director to resign.
WHO Stay calm and carry on WHO wakeup During Global Financial Crisis global financial institutions - IMF & World Bank were admirably swift to act. They did what the world needed – and while negative consequences couldn’t be avoided, the immediate impact was to some extent mitigated. Trying to feel bad for the billionaires, but nothing is coming out.

This will return just as it was lost. Poof !! All the fed money gone in one week... but no go ahead J Powell add a couple more trillion at this point doesnt matter. Markets are in self fulfilling prophecy mode. money now dictates reality...at least we are being honest. but you know, those without money don't care too much about markets, they care about family. give us the facts and not the results and measures to stem....not a financial report.
WHO is waiting for China’s instruction and approval before taking any further actions. ChinaVirus COVID2019 That impact risk to wealth really hurts. Trump could use this opportunity to employ Americans and get some work done. And next week the impact risk alert will be 'beyond salvage' but still not pandemic. Literally EVERYONE is calling this a pandemic but the WHO!! Wtf is the point of them at this point!
So Mick Mulvaney thinks the WHO is out to undermine Trump, too? The consequences of the “hyped up hysteria” could cause far more long lasting damage than the coronavirus itself. three years of market gains up in smoke
Wait so the stock market determines how high the risk is ? Wtf is this ? this is stupid. The health organisation should pay no attention to markets to determine this. Ppl on markets see a potential crisis and sell It should be determined on the ACTUAL facts about the virus. It not wiped $6 trillion it wiped the whole humanity along the great great faith of humanity . Best and best wishes for all . I believe great peace for all .
Bang goes my pension. I guess I'll just have to survive another 10 years or so without it.... Again.
