7 Reasons not to panic over Corona Virus 19

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

There are at least 7 reasons not to panic over corona virus 19.

First reason not to panic

The pathogen is of a family of corona viruses already known to man, as the World Health Organization explains:

Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses which may cause illness in animals or humans. In humans, several coronaviruses are known to cause respiratory infections ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS).

What they do not say, is how large a family of virus they are. But Wikipedia does, in the article on Coronaviridae:

The family Coronaviridae is organized in 2 sub-families, 5 genera, 23 sub-genera and about 40 species:[2]

Note, that each species can have variations, some more potent than others. But of these 40 species, and all their variations, only 3 rare forms were know to be lethal to man. Corona Virus 19 is just the one discovered in 2019.

Second Reason not to Panic

The infection rates are a lot lower than are being reported. There is no definitive test for corona virus being used in emergency room admissions at hospitals. Many patients may be suffering from other kinds of infections.  This is because the symptoms of Corona virus infection are similar to many other pathogens. Thus, identifying someone as infected by symptoms is unscientific.

Third Reason not to Panic

The mortality rates being reported are statistically being misrepresented.  They regard the rates of mortality of patients admitted to hospitals suffering from influenza like symptoms which are presumed to be Corona virus. Thus, the current rates being reported of 3.4% do not regard only the Corona virus. Also, death may not result from the virus but from other symptoms. A highly rigorous analysis of causes of death is needed, and this cannot be done daily, this requires months of statistical analysis and has to be conducted in highly controlled environments. None of that is happening.

Fourth Reason not to Panic

The mortality rates being reported are being used by the Media to cause panic by misinterpreting them.  A mortality rate of 3.4% of those presumed to be infected and who are admitted to Hospitals for grave symptoms, means that 3.4% of only that population dies. It does not refer to the entire population. You cannot multiply 3.4% by the entire population of your city, province, or Nation to extrapolate anything.

Since most never go to hospital for influenza like symptoms, and most have good enough immune systems to resist corona virus, the actual mortality rate for the entire population of your country will be a tiny fraction. The Ministry of Health data published yesterday here in Italy confirms this. While the press has claimed hundreds of thousands are infected, the Ministry confirms only 10 thousand, and 848 deaths, but they say that of these deaths there can be no certitude that they were caused by the corona virus without a rigorous study.

Thus, in Italy, with 60.48 million people, only 1.65% of 1% of the entire population is actually infected. While, La Verità today, is reporting that the first case came to Italy from Munich, Bavaria, when an Italian visited the city in January about the time of the Acies Ordinata event in that city, on January 18, 2020. Thus, in 8 weeks, a minuscule number of infections and deaths. While in Italy in 2017, 25 thousand died of the influenza from November to March, at a rate of 5000 a month, or 1250 a week, which would in the same period of time be a mortality of 10,000 or 12.5 times more lethal than corona virus 19.

Fifth Reason not to Panic

This particular strain of corona virus, cannot survive summer heat. Already in Singapore, the number of infections has fallen dramatically. This means, in northern countries which have well heated homes and public spaces, the possibility of infection will be almost non existent.  Italy is suffering higher rates than the rest of Europe because heating in private and public places is abysmal. Italians turn heat on for about 1 hour a day, or two at most. And most public buildings are not heated or only to about 60 degrees. So the true mortality rates in Italy will not occur in other nations.

Sixth reason not to panic

Nothing happens except God will it. Disease is a punishment for the sin of Adam and the sins of individuals. Confessing your sins and staying in God’s grace will give you real protection from an unprovided for death. And if God has sent this pathogen to punish sinners, then it makes sense to repent and stop being a sinner.

Seventh reason not to panic

Finally, if you want to put the Corona Virus scare into historical context, just read about the Spanish Fever of 1917 or the Black Death, to see that the corona virus is not a plague or a pandemic of any level of real threat. Nations, Churches, businesses and cities should not be shut down on its account. Corona virus is not going to cause any noticeably higher death rate. You won’t see your friends dropping off or more funerals than normal, as the national rates of death from other causes are 10 to 100 times higher, as can be seen from this report about mortality in Italy.

  1. Very good Br. Alexis. But. The corno virus is real along with the panic. Our instant world wide, all encompassing communication mechanisms enhance the panic which we see demonstrated in the stock market indexes falling, meaning a negative wealth effect, a recession is on the way with layoffs, folks are scared and will stop spending, etc.

    The economic effects may be the most serious part of Corno and they are real causing much misery. There is a domino effect in all of this and we have no idea right now where it will end.

  2. Continued. Here is an excerpt from today’s New York Times:
    “The cascade of announcements felt like a turning point in the crisis, when the real-world effect on people in the United States and around the globe came into stark relief. Ordinary life in many places will no longer be the same for the foreseeable future as society adjusts to a new reality that transforms everything including the global economy and everyday social interactions — not just in far-off places on newscasts, but in the community right at home.”

    From the futures in the Wall Street Journal: Dow is down another 1225 points meaning that someone with $200,000 in stock has lost close to $60,000 in the last week or so.

    I don’t think the 7 reasons not to panic is having much of an effect.

    1. Michael, I think panic is contagious, that is why I will not publish any more comments spreading panic. I think you need to calm down. That liberals without God’s grace are panicing should show us that we should not panic. — At the end of time when the Lord comes in glory, and the heavens roll up and this world dissolves in fire, we should not panic, or else we betray our faith which alone can save us. Leave it to the godless to panic.

      1. I agree panic is contagious but the results are real. Anyway, I agree this is the time for both prayer, preparedness and facing reality, knowing that God is with us, especially with those who obey his commandments..

  3. No one with any sense pays attention to the NYT any more. They are shouting into their leftist bubble, and only those already convinced that “everything is changed forever” are going to buy that nonsense. As Br. Alexis pointed out, this whole panic will die with the summer heat, just as its predecessors did.
    Pray and fast and don’t worry.
    BTW, Br Alexis, the “reblog” button seems not to be functional right now. I also tried to use it yesterday without success.

  4. Their plan, their virus that they created for bio-warfare weaponry to cover up their bigger crimes are now being unfold… When enough people panic, they will take the whole world into their Martial Law, Confiscate Guns and Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Worshiping God… etc, etc.

    All these had been planned and wrote down at least 200 years ago. Why are you people today panic? They do not heed God’s calling and pay any attention to the Catholic Prophecy. It isn’t news or new, but agenda of the Freemasons/Luciferians of the NWO and it’s old.

    Everybody, especially Catholics must heed the Fatima Message, do penance, say Rosary daily, go to TRUE MASS, the mass that St. Pius V (Pope) had codified and can’t be changed by anyone or any reason. It is it, the mass of St. Pope Pius V was cancelled and deceived by the Vatican II Evil Council of Freemasons and Protestants.

    When no more TRUE SACRIFICE is to be made in the true mass, the world is dry out the graces from God. Thus, Satan walked in and claimed the whole world under his claws. Blame all the evils and corrupts to the father of lies: SYNAGOGUE OF SATAN. They are the ones who dragged this country to hell just as they did to Germany, Russia… now they do this to the USA so that they can have the whole world in one shot.

    PRAY, FAST, OFFER MORE SACRIFICES AND MAKE MORE HOLY EUCHARIST ADORATION WITH A CLEAN SOUL. Go to confession weekly, to block devils that always seek to trap you in sins and in complicit.

    Our Lady said “It will be worst and only two weapons left for everyone, the Holy Rosary and the sign of My Son…” What is the sign that Her Son left to us? THE HOLY CRUCIFIX, NOT THE CROSS OR THE EMPTY WOOD-CROSS FIGURE. The Catholics must honor, adore and worship GOD BECOMES MAN AND DIED ON THE CROSS FOR US. Don’t wear the Freemason-sorcery-insult crucifix of John Paul II. The bended-down cross the Freemasons promoted are blasphemous and sacrilege. In the Black-Mass and in devils-worshiping rituals, they bring those bended-down cross and you stupid people follow the Jewish Freemason condemned Pope John Paul II?

    LOOK AT THE FRUIT TO KNOW THE TREE. WE HAVE SEEN ALL THE BAD FRUITS FROM COMMUNIST-FREEMASON POPE JOHN XXIII, GAY-JEW-SATANIC POPE PAUL VI, AND DOUBLE-LIFE-JEW-LUCIFERIAN CULT LEADER POPE JOHN PAUL II… AND STILL CATHOLICS ARE ASLEEP. NO ONES OPEN THEIR EYES YET?

    So, the chastisement is justify, 100% justified to all the people on this planet. You haven’t seen the worst yet. It will come after the wars. Now, it is just the beginning. This world deserves to be punished for its sins. Unless all of Catholics repent, do penance, make sacrifices, keep the Catholic Faith, go back to the true mass and make reparation to all the sins that mankind committed against Sacred Heart and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

    The FATIMA MESSAGE is the ONLY remedy to cure all the problems of this end time, but until you people recognize that. No more graces from God until the world heed the FATIMA MESSAGE.

  5. The panic initially was understandable in some parts of the world (due to the amount of uncertainty of this outbreak), but by now, it has gotten out of hand and it is pathetic.
