COVID-19, Cold, Flu, Know The Difference

Know the difference between Cold, Flu, & COVID-19 symptoms. If you are feeling any of the COVID-19 symptoms get tested today!

“We in the World Health Organization do not advocate lockdowns as the primary means of control of this virus,” Dr. David Nabarro said to The Spectator’s Andrew Neil. “The only time we believe a lockdown is justified is to buy you time to reorganize, regroup, rebalance your resources, protect your health workers who are exhausted, but by and large, we’d rather not do it.”

I’ll let the words of the World Health Organization speak for themselves.


Nearly 1,000 Chicago Police Officers have tested positive for COVID-19 and three with pre-existing conditions have died. Yet CPD recently sent out a directive regarding instructing CPD’s sworn members to report for work even when they know they have been exposed to the virus. You read that correctly – report for duty – no quarantine. CPD merely directs officers to monitor for symptoms and/or elevated temperature, and to wear a mask. Otherwise, carry on, business as usual. This puts potentially contagious officers in contact with the public, and of course, with their fellow officers.

This directive is reckless or ironic, or perhaps both. Reckless, because of the high level of contact CPD has with the public and each other. Ironic, because while CPD is directing exposed officers to go out and about in public, the City actively updates its unenforceable “mandatory state quarantine list.” Ironic because of absurd cancellations of and limitations on many winter high school sports. Ironic, because City Hall continues to keep its schools closed, despite the science that says students are at and cause minimal risk. Kids are the least contagious, and the research proves that isolating children from their classrooms inflicts academic, social emotional and physical damage, particularly for the low-income children who make up the vast majority of CPS’ students.

Are these decisions really being driven by science and research or are they being driven by politics?
