A new term has been invented to describe people who ignore the warnings about the Chinese coronavirus and either seek to carry on as normal or panic buy toilet paper and pasta, regardless of whether it puts other people in danger.
Meet the COVIDIOTS.
The Urban Dictionary, defines a Covidiot as
“Someone who ignores the warnings regarding public health or safety. A person who hoards goods, denying them from their neighbors.”
“A stupid person who stubbornly ignores ‘social distancing’ protocol, thus helping to further spread Covid-19.”
It gives the examples:
“Are you seriously going to visit grandma? Dude, don’t be such a covidiot.”
“That covidiot is hugging everyone she sees.”
Google stats show that the term is gaining a lot of traction:
Yesterday in London, following a government lockdown, scores of covidiots were witnessed gathering to sunbathe in the parks:
It’s not a holiday, it’s a lockdown, which means you don’t just come here and sunbathe.” pic.twitter.com/vS2j8kex73

Other covidiots decided that inviting all their friends to back yard BBQs was a good idea, and the covidiot friends attended, only to be sent home by cops:
Of course, the biggest covidiots of all are the ones who originally told us ‘it’s just the flu, bro’…
The original "it's just the flu bro" morons were the mainstream media itself.
The same people who demand everyone else be deplatformed for 'fake news' and "misinformation." pic.twitter.com/KGIHoDXrwZ

…and, ‘this isn’t going to be a pandemic’:
Translation: You got it horrifically wrong (again) and think that by deleting the tweet (without even showing the tweet) that this gives you journalistic credibility.
Like the entirety mainstream media, you lied. pic.twitter.com/iaBXuTVrhF

…and, don’t be mean to China for lying and spreading the killer virus:
Now, back to the original covidiots:
Please stop Chinese from eating all living creatures!
What these people spare ? Dogs? Birds ? Bugs &insects ? Snakes ?monkeys,donkeys ? Tigers & lions?

Poll: A Quarter Of Americans Are Not Interested In Coronavirus Vaccine
But two thirds are either “very” or “somewhat” interested.
A Reuters/Ipsos poll published Thursday has revealed that a quarter of Americans are not interested in taking a coronavirus vaccine.
The poll founds that 14% were not interested at all, and 10% were not very interested in the vaccine.
However, while that 24% dismissed the idea, two thirds, 66%, said they are either “very” or “somewhat” interested in taking a vaccine when it is produced.
Dr. William Schaffner, an infectious disease expert at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, said “It’s a little lower than I thought it would be with all the attention to COVID-19,” adding “I would have expected somewhere around 75 percent.”
The Reuters report notes that health experts believe “at least 70% of Americans would need to be immune through a vaccine or prior infection to achieve what is known as “herd immunity,” when enough people are resistant to an infectious disease to prevent its spread.”
Peter Hotez, dean of the National School of Tropical Medicine at Baylor College of Medicine noted that “It’s not surprising a significant percentage of Americans are not going to take the vaccine because of the terrible messaging we’ve had, the absence of a communication plan around the vaccine and this very aggressive anti-vaccine movement.”
The poll also found that 36% of respondents would be less willing to take a vaccine if President Trump said it was safe, with just 14% said they would be interested.
A week ago, Trump announced “Operation Warp Speed,” to fast-track the development and distribution of a coronavirus vaccine by January 2021, tapping experts and resources in science, medicine, the military, and the private sector.
Trump has said that the military will be deployed to distribute the vaccine, but has suggested that it will remain voluntary, noting that it will be for those “who want to get it,” and “Not everyone is going to want to get it.”
British Health Officials Suggest Coronavirus Vaccine Could Be MANDATORY
“Clearly mandation is there, it can be used in some instances.”
The British health secretary Matt Hancock said during a briefing that he hopes ‘everybody would have the vaccine’, if and when a coronavirus shot is rolled out, and did not rule out making it mandatory for every citizen.
Hancock was asked directly by a reporter if getting the vaccine could be made compulsory, and replied that the question is “not one that we have addressed yet”.
“I would hope given the scale of this crisis and given the overwhelming need for us to get through this and to get the country back on its feet and the very positive impact that a vaccine would have that everybody would have the vaccine.” Hancock said.
Professor John Newton, who is overseeing Britain’s coronavirus testing, then confirmed that mandating vaccinations is on the table.
“Clearly mandation is there, it can be used in some instances.” Newton said, admitting however that “most successful vaccine programmes tend to be by consent.”
“Although some countries have adopted mandatory programmes, the most successful programmes tend to be done on the basis of consent, good information and good delivery mechanisms.” Newton said.
Hancock has previously strenuously criticised anti-vaccination campaigners. Last year he announced that the UK Government was “looking very seriously” at instituting compulsory vaccinations for state school pupils.
In the US, calls have been made to make any vaccination mandatory with the likes of the New York Times expressing concern that half of Americans would refuse to take it.
In Canada, a poll recently revealed that 60 per cent think that when a vaccine for coronavirus becomes available it should be made mandatory.
In addition, Canada’s current Chief Public Health Officer appeared in a recently resurfaced 2010 documentary in which she advocated using mandatory “tracking bracelets” for people who refuse to take a vaccine after a virus outbreak.
Many experts have suggested that a vaccine may not even be successful due to the nature of the coronavirus family and the fact that it can mutate.
In the UK, Scientists have expressed doubts over the effectiveness of a vaccine that has been rushed to human trials, after all of the monkeys used in initial testing later contracted coronavirus.
Meanwhile, greater breakthroughs have been made in anti-body studies, with researchers from Seattle successfully neutralizing the spike proteins of the virus, and researchers in California claiming to have discovered anti-bodies that can completely block COVID-19.
Top Scientific Advisor to UK Government Says 2 Meter Social Distancing Rule Based on “Very Fragile Evidence”
Says gap is not necessary.
A top scientific adviser to the UK government says that the 2 meter social distancing rule is based on “very fragile evidence.”
The British government has been advising its citizens to keep a 2 meter distance for over two months despite other countries advising the gap only needs to be one meter.
Professor Robert Dingwall, a sociologist at Nottingham Trent University and a member of government advisory group NERVTAG (New and Emerging Respiratory Virus Threats Advisory Group), said the 2 meter distance was unnecessary.
“The World Health Organization recommends a one metre distance, Denmark has adopted it since the beginning of last week,” said Dingwall.
“If you probe around the recommendations of distance in Europe you will find that a lot of countries have also gone for this really on the basis of a better understanding of the scientific evidence around the possible transmission of infection,” he added.
Many observers have warned that enforcing the 2 meter rule is practically impossible for many shops, restaurants and bars and will put them out of business.
“The distance may be a non-scientific estimate that just caught on in countries around the world, as top researchers say there is not solid evidence to back it up,” reports the Daily Mail.
Former Conservative Party Cabinet minister Iain Duncan-Smith also warned that the 2 meter rule could cripple the hospitality sector.
As I highlight in the video below, the “new normal” of social distancing is creating a society so pedantic and cringeworthy, it’s almost like it’s a tactic to make us want to stay indoors forever.
