    Dr. Drew: This is an overblown, press-created hysteria

    The "right people" are combating this virus, he said, stressing that Dr. Fauci, the head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, "will tell you what's going on" and "when you need to worry."

    Dr. Drew replied, "Yes, yes, yes. We are not over-reacting, the press is overreacting. It makes me furious. The press should not be reporting medical stories as though they know how to report it."

    The coronavirus is "going to be much more widespread than we knew," he said. "It’s going to be much milder than we knew. The 1.7% fatality rate is going to fall. Where was the press during the Mediterranean corona outbreak when the fatality rate was 41%. They want to get crazed about something why didn’t they get crazed about MERS and SARS?"

    "President Trump is absolutely correct," said Dr. Drew. "He allocated $2.5 billion for this, Chuck Schumer [D-N.Y.] asked for $8 billion. My response is, hey man, we’ve got a homeless problem here in California and in Denver. Would you please give us some of that $8 billion and forget about the coronavirus? We’ve got that taken care of."

    Dr. Drew makes a lot of good points.
    Is it just me or is it getting crazier out there?”

    If this turns out to be yet another in a now long line of Victim Culture Cult hoaxes then I am going to be out for blood (figuratively)!

    I give warning statements.

    We are so screwed....ANNOUNCEMENT: Screwing Around Time is Officially Over.....It has to be.

    How come this blames the press, rather than the true hysteria leaders, social media, memes, both right and left wing rag mags? Those are the true "influencers".

    But then Trump lives them, so why would those on the right ever mention them as actually spreading hysteria, including false info?

    No, he just the regurgitates the same denialist talking points long debunked. Complains about media hysteria while he has a hysterical rant to *check notes* the media. Says we should only listen to the experts, yeah we’re doing that, thanks Dr. Drew. You can go back to another season of Celebrity Rehab.

    Drew is a dumbass.

    MERS and SARS were less contagious and far, far fewer became sick or died from them.

    I think the guy who hosts "Teen Mom" reunions is definetely an expert we should listen to.
    Trump November 2013: "Leadership: Whatever happens, you're responsible. If it doesn't happen, you're responsible."

    Isn't he a psychologist? Or a therapist or something?

    He's obviously not an epidemiologist or virologist..

    He sounds like trump with a vocabulary.
