Virus Shaming by Bill Maher

virus shaming

Bill Maher hits the nail on the head with this video on virus shaming!!  My blog has been saturated with posts related to COVID-19 lately.  This video sums them all up pretty well…

Other than the fact that the Spanish flu didn’t start in Spain, the points Maher makes are all valid.  History buffs know that as Spain was one of the neutral European countries in WW1, their (uncensored) media were the first to report the ravages of the virus that was killing off millions…Hence, the name Spanish flu, first reported out of Spain but not started there. Talk about virus shaming.
