Popular podcast host Joe Rogan explained his thoughts on the Coronavirus and how it’s being handled, revealing why he’s genuinely scared of it.
Joe Rogan is a well-known UFC commentator who doubles as arguably the most successful podcast hosts, where he discusses popular and trending topics with a variety of guests.
In his February 12 episode, he spoke about the growing Coronavirus outbreak, explaining how he feels about the way it’s being handled, and why exactly he is scared of it.
Overall, Joe is concerned with the whole situation and criticized the way it’s being handled by the Chinese government.
“Did you see that video of China where they’re spraying disinfectant in the street… its f**king bonkers, they’re driving in the street spraying everything… it’s crazy.” He began, before going more in-depth about the virus.
“We were talking with these infectious disease exports… and [they said] these viruses make themselves, happen all the time, and we can barely keep up with them. All it takes is one giant one [to do some harm].”
Finally, he went into his personal feelings about the Coronavirus and he did not seem to have high hopes. “I’m not feeling good about it, it scares me… these things can absolutely wipe out millions and millions of people before we can get a handle on it.”
So far the Coronavirus has mostly spread throughout China and the government claim they are keeping a handle on it.
Over 60,000 cases have reportedly been confirmed, with the vast majority of them being in China, a country with a population of over 1.3 billion.
Some airlines have even stopped direct flights to China as the country continues to battle the virus, although, there have not been any indications that it could be as bad Joe Rogan fears.
