Coronavirus or not ‘we all have a risk of dying’
Sky News host Andrew Bolt says everyone must face the facts, “if we’re going to start living normally, we’re going to have to accept the risk of dying from coronavirus”.
Mr Bolt said there is also a risk of dying “every time we step into a car, or play a contact sport, or work on our tan or put some extra salt on our hot chips”.
"Everything comes with a risk".
He said while US President Donald Trump may want us “to hate and fear China” through his claims the deadly disease was created in a laboratory, the reality is it is “unlikely this virus escaped from a lab”.
He said, in fact, a recent study is reporting the virus “may have mutated into its final 'human-efficient' form months ago (and) stayed inside a bat or other animals”.
“In other words, this virus could have been around for up to three months before China registered its first official case”.
Mr Bolt said this could mean people in Australia and around the world may have been “infected and recovered before anyone noticed”.
