Over 100,000 Americans Killed by the Coronavirus

The coronavirus continues to ravage the United States. The death toll in the United States caused by the coronavirus has now exceeded 100,000. One survey says about one in eight Americans knows someone who died. The people of the United States are living within an ongoing catastrophe.

However there is one thing we do not need to be afraid of. Some may be afraid that this coronavirus is some sort of sign that the COGs' dire predictions will soon occur. This current crisis is no such thing.

Herbert Armstrong and his imitators are false prophets who do not know what will happen in the future. Every now and then Armstrongite demogogues would make their followers scared of disease epidemics but no one among the Armstrongites predicted this coronavirus catastrophe. Some of them even chose to downplay this epidemic.

While many are suffering and need help because of the coronavirus there is no need to be afraid of the Armstrongites' dire predictions. They are but false prophets.

Hydroxychloroquine is No Good Against the Coronavirus

So President Trump stayed that he takes hydroxychloroquine to protect himself against the coronavirus.

Unfortunately there is scientific evidence indicates that hydroxychloroquine does not work against the coronavirus. One nationwide study reported that more coronavirus patients died after taking hydroxychloroquine than if they had not taken it.

It is a medicine for malaria, lupus and arthritis. Not the coronavirus. It is dangerous that some people are fixated on a medicine that actually might make it more likely for you to die from the coronavirus. We need to follow proper hygiene procedures and listen to medical professionals instead of following a wild goose chase.

PCG Insists Coronavirus Death Toll is Overstated

Currently the death toll of COVID-19 in the United States is about 85,000, an ongoing catastrophe that staggers the imagination. It is probably an underestimate since it took awhile for the US to get testing to be widely available. Many Americans are unable to be tested even today. Also there is the issue of indirect harm to the population such as persons who need medical attention for other reasons but are having difficulty to get proper treatment because of the epidemic.

Nevertheless PCG continues to downplay it. In the July 2020 issue of PCG's recruitment magazine, The Philadelphia Trumpet, it is insisted that the death toll of the coronavirus epidemic in the United States is understated. PCG's writers stated the following in the Infographic.
... the real COVID-19 death rate is lower than reported. ... 
Those who die from the disease are mostly elderly people with serious preexisting health conditions. 
COVID-19 deaths are likely overestimates. ... 
Compared to past pandemics, COVID-19 is relatively mild.  
Imperial College of London originally
estimated that 2.2 million people in the
United States and 510,000 people in the
United Kingdom would die from COVID-19
without government lockdowns. While it is
now impossible to know what the death rate would have been without the lockdowns, updated information about the number of mild COVID-19 cases shows that these initial death toll estimates were gross exaggerations.
It is awful that PCG continues to downplay the severity of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
