We are living in strange times and we have no idea when things will return to normality. But it seems that George Bush had an idea! Turns out, he predicted the crisis fifteen years ago and the video’s gotten people talking.
It’s scary how accurate his prediction was…
And many have banned large and crowded events, and any travel to and from infected countries.
Our first case was confirmed in Washington in late January after a citizen returned from a trip to China.
Since the first patient in Washington, there have been thousands more confirmed cases across the country.
Last month, President Trump declared a national emergency to combat the pandemic, freeing up $50 billion in federal funding and promising a screening website and drive-by tests.
Many people have been descending into mass hysteria over the risks the virus brings with it.
And millions all over the world have been self-isolating at home, in a last-ditch attempt to avoid catching the virus.
A cure is yet to be found.
But only time will tell if a cure will be found, and the one thing that is needed is money to fund these expensive experiments.
But people aren’t giving up hope, and Clive Palmer is certainly one of those people.
And he has made a very cool donation of $1 million towards a clinical trial in the hopes of finding a cure for the deadly virus.

The crisis continues and panic doesn’t seem to be easing – with a big thanks to the internet, of course.
But footage of our former president, George Bush, has gotten everyone talking.

“If caught early it might be extinguished with limited damage. If allowed to smolder, undetected, it can grow to an inferno that spreads quickly beyond our ability to control it,” he said.
