A Virginia pastor who claimed that the coronavirus was a "mass hysteria" caused by the media died after being infected with Covid-19.

Pastor Landon Spradlin, 66, fell ill with his wife after a recent trip to New Orleans, and unfortunately died of the virus after he was diagnosed with pneumonia. He had spent a week on a ventilator to fight the disease, but eventually died.

The pastor had shared a meme on Facebook criticizing the media for unjustified panic about the corona virus. He compared current media coverage of the H1N1 virus and suggested that the H1N1 virus was worse, but the nation and the media were "totally cold" during this crisis.

Just a few days before he developed coronavirus, Pastor Spradlin wrote on his Facebook account: "President Trump: COVID-19 coronavirus. US cases: 1,329. US deaths: 38th panic: mass hysteria," the post said. "President Obama: H1N1 virus. US cases: 60.8 million. US deaths: 12,469. Panic level: totally chilled."

"Do you all see how the media can manipulate your life?" the post questioned.

Statistics compare the bottom line of the H1N1 virus to a very early stage of the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on the United States. Some studies have shown that if the Trump administration didn't take mass restrictions and measures to slow the spread of the disease, Covid-19 would kill up to 9.3 million Americans.

Pastor Spradlin's wife, Jean, tested negative for coronavirus, but was asked to remain in quarantine in North Carolina for at least a week. The couple traveled through the state when the pastor fell ill.

On Friday, President Donald Trump ordered automaker General Motors to manufacture ventilators for coronavirus patients, citing a Korean War Defense Equipment Law. Legislation allows the President to force American companies to participate in the manufacture of products for national defense emergencies.

Trump struck the head of General Motors, saying that he was "wasting time" in negotiations with the government and that fan work should begin now.

The United States has stepped up its tests last week and is now testing more than any other country in the world – even though the American population is much larger than South Korea.

As of Friday, 104,000 confirmed cases of coronavirus were discovered through tests with nearly 1,700 deaths. Although the United States has now registered more confirmed cases than any other nation, global statistics are distorted by national testing strategies and the availability of testing in different countries.
