    I really don't know but I would take a wild guess that a Democrat was in office. No fake news when a Democrat is in office.

    Because, back then our President wasn't hated.  Dems will go out of their way to destroy this country by any means necessary.  If that means politicizing this virus, to oust Trump, then so be it, that's what they will do.

    And the American people?  We will all suffer because of their insanity.  What's sad is the people who voted for those individuals won't even blink.  Why?  Well, when you have no morals...

    2009 H1N1 swine flu was just slightly different from the 1918 original H1N1 Spanish flu. It was weaker than the original 1918 so it was dismiss as another flu plus partisan (D) news media protected their pet. There were 4 pandemic flus before 2009 & vaccines for H#N# variants were and are being develop year after year.

    For one reason, BO was in charge in 2009 and he was not inclined to blame people for things that were not under their control. For another, the lethality rate of the Swine Flu was about 1/6 that of the COVID19; so the threat back then was not nearly so great.

    "Trump calls coronavirus Democrats' 'new hoax' - NBC Newswww.nbcnews.com › politics › donald-trump › trump-calls-coronavir...

    Feb 28, 2020 - President Donald Trump accused Democrats of “politicizing” the deadly coronavirus during a campaign rally here on Friday,"

    Trump on the other hand started off in February blaming the Democrats for over stating the threat and called it a hoax to make him, Trump, look bad. In case you haven't noticed; Trump is great for taking credit when things happen to work out, but quick to blame others when they don't.

    Other disease outbreaks haven't been as widespread or as deadly.  Why are Americans acting like it is only an American problem?  This is a worldwide thing.

      How are we doing that? The glove thing? We're just focused on taking care of our citizens.

    We had a government that handled it better. That's all it takes, a government that is prepared to act right away and take reasonable precautions before it gets out of hand.
