With millions of Americans concerned about coronavirus, radio host Rush Limbaugh is providing some perspective on the actual number of fatalities from COVID-19 compared to those from other causes.

On his Wednesday broadcast, Limbaugh cited a list from worldometers.info that rounded up the worldwide deaths from Jan. 1 through March 25 of 2020:

  • “Coronavirus: 21,000 deaths.
  • Seasonal flu: 113,000.
  • Malaria: 228,000.
  • Suicide: 249,000.
  • Traffic fatalities, 313, almost 314,000 deaths.
  • HIV/AIDS, 391,000 deaths.
  • Alcohol related deaths, 581,000.
  • Smoking-related deaths, 1,162,000.
  • Cancer deaths, 1,909,000 deaths.
  • Deaths attributed to starvation, 2,382,000 deaths.
  • And death by abortion, 9,900,000.”

“I’m not trying to make any correlation,” Limbaugh explained.

“I’m not trying to say, ‘Hey, we’re overreacting to coronavirus death.’ I’m just giving you the stats here. You can react to these stats however you wish.”

He added: “You still have some really shocking numbers. Because we don’t talk about it. We got suicide hotlines. We try to teach people to drive safely. We do whatever we do with HIV/AIDS. We tell people to drink responsibly, tell people not to smoke, try to devise cancer treatments, we try to feed people.”

Limbaugh even mentioned efforts by his hometown of Palm Beach, Florida: “The town website where I live is chiding people for being on the beach, for standing too close together while their dogs are pooping. I mean, you wouldn’t believe it. I’ve seen it all.”

    Rush rocks! My opinion is that during the Obama Administration, and before him test’s for SARS and MERS where not available so lets see, the U.S has had over a billion illegals invade our country I would say half or more are still here, some who became legal and those still gaming the system.

    President Donald Trump and his administration have tested for other contagious diseases. On 2018 in the fall, Border Patrol contracted SARS. If this were true then why is the U;S so gung-ho to go after China for the spread? The spread of SARS-Covid has spread mostly in those “triangle countries” nine years ago who have been paid to get in long lines to walk maybe two miles and get food, medical attention and cell phones, and make it to the U.S and claim asylum.

    Many were dropped off in our communities by Churches who work with Non-Profits and get the funding through the government. millions are homeless and we have homelessness for American citizens that has skyrocketed. Those homeless are all black, white and now adding more homeless who seek asylum, smuggled in, and those who are visa overstayers who brought more diseases into our sovereign country that have been eradicated for over a century . SARS-Covid and MERS, yes was created by many evil people around the world. It just depends on what country wants to pay the most to destroy innocent human beings and try to interfere with the United States of America’s government aiming a target at President Donald Trump.
