    You are truly a piece of WORK! I know you are supposed to be "COMEDY"... but you act like you are NEWS, YOU ARE NOT A NEWS CHANNEL... Not to mention, did you actually even say anything honest in the whole 22 minutes that you ran your mouth?!? You are the BIGGEST PROBLEM with the country and causing PANIC and HATE! You should just stick to actually comedy, and leave the news to real reporters (if there are any left). Why don't you do something helpful, instead of posting crappy videos! Like volunteer somewhere to help others instead of pushing lies and hate!

    Please listen to me. I have covid 19 and have sucessfully treated it with the asthma medication primatine. From my experience, covid acts much like asthma, constricting broncial airways and can be treated with ephidrine or steriods. Without it, i couldnt breathe and i think this may have been over looked. Please help me get this info out to help save lives. Any questions feel free to contact me and thanks.

  • Sean Wang

    Generally I agree with 90% of what John Oliver says with the amount of thorough investigation and analysis his team does. However the fact he is advocating people not to wear mask and simply to cough in their hands and sleeves shows how misinformed Americans are. YOU ALL NEED WEAR A MASK in public! It is astoundingly stupid that people are not. Now yes, wearing a mask will not prevent you from getting the virus but it lowers the chance of you spreading it in case you are a spreader. If everyone does it then it will help. And given how challenging this situation is any help you all need all the help you need. So stop spreading misinformation, stay at home, and if you go out wear a fucking mask.

      This is a terrible idea, and to say this is how "misinformed Americans are" is so incredibly misguided and flagrantly offensive. And that's coming from an American who HATES America and its people. Sure, Americans are stupid, but lets not fabricate facts and attempt to alter reality here. If everyone went out and bought masks, there would be absolutely NONE left for those who truly need it, and the fact that you don't recognize it says it all, but I'll explain anyways since you clearly need a reality check. N95 masks, which are the only masks that are truly effective in slowing transmission of the virus, are not easy to manufacture, and are not produced by the millions waiting to be sold. Any other masks are virtually ineffective compared to wearing no mask at all, and the science is extremely clear on that. Those masks prevent droplets from touching your nose and mouth, but even if you touch your mask with infected droplets on your hands, the virus can still enter and infect you. Masks are meant to prevent those who are already ill from spreading the virus to others, not to protect healthy individuals. N95 masks have to be fitted to your face, whereas simple surgical masks are not. They are not designed to stop pathogens entirely, they are designed to contain and/or redirect these particles so they don't enter an open incision or cavity while in surgery. Here's an anecdote for you: In early February, my landlords (who I live with) came back from a trip to China, and they were both ill before boarding the plane. Luckily this ended up not being SARS-CoV-2, but regardless, they gave me a heads up and I wanted to take precautions to protect myself. I self-quarantined for two reasons; first, to see if it was actually the novel coronavirus, and second, in the event that I did catch it I would be home and not spread it to others. I bought soap, disinfecting wipes, I stored non-refrigerated foods directly in my room so I wouldn't have to leave, and I went to look for N95 masks. The issue was that they were COMPLETELY sold out of masks. Even the useless surgical masks were sold out. I went to 3 pharmacies, 2 medical supply stores, and even my local clinic to see if they could get me some masks. This was BEFORE the mass panic in the US mind you. If I had that caught the virus close to the end of my isolation and I was asymptomatic for a few days, I could have very well spread the virus to my entire town (I teach music to high schoolers, it would've spread like wildfire). Its curious as well that you make this unwise recommendation when real epidemiologists, doctors, the American CDC and the WHO in fact DO NOT recommend you wear a mask if you are not sick. But surely you know more than the experts, right? Its RICH how you preach about stopping misinformation but then go on to pull bullshit straight out of your ass for the world to see. What a fucking despicable hypocrite you are.

    South korea was soo prepared because of the sarrs virus that hit them some years back. So they had an entire system still in place ready to go. I just dont understand how the worlds super power doesnt have a contingency plan for a pandemic and have massive stockpiles of masks, PPE, breathing machine and all other things needed. This should have been in place decades ago but the US wastes soo much money on soo many stupid things but not doing something like that. What does that say for everything the government says. Maybe everything they say is a lie. Makes people uncertain and just not believe anything anymore. Just redicoulous.
