Coronavirus – Threat or Exaggeration?

Scenes from Italian hospitals and videos of pleas from overwhelmed Spanish doctors would have us unquestioningly believing the narrative of a highly viral and vicious illness ripping through the world, but do the facts really reflect this and do the experts really think this?

The Gradual Sexualisation of Children
