bioches, influenza is a yearly mutatin virus that effects people worldwide.

that cough u had last year, was influenza aka the cold. the cough u got this year is already a mutatin a different version, otherwise u wuldnt be sick.

it changes yearly and from what my brilliant brain remembers, of the 1000s of yearly different mutations, most of them are relative harmless.

sars is just a more severe influenza so unless it hits worldwide, i wuldnt be worried. or unless ur extremely weak.

these things make yearly babies like humans, what can we say

A wall would have made us safe. If any American dies from this then we can blame the Democrats. The Democratic party should be impeached for crimes against the American people!
