Poor Man’s Virus (COVID-19)

The 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic has been called a “poor person’s virus” and, occasionally, a “poor man’s virus.” A rich person can isolate, while a poor person might have to work in dangerous conditions. A rich person can afford the best healthcare.

“Until you see @oprah @realdonaldtrump @beyonce @pontifex die from #covid19 know for a fact this is a world government made and controlled poor man’s virus #populationcontrol, #ORDEROUTOFCHAOS” was posted on Twitter by FEMINIST ENEMIES on February 29, 2020. “Basically, Covid is a poor man’s virus” was posted on Twitter by TM on July 7, 2020. “#Coronavirus is a poor man’s virus: #America’s super rich are throwing lavish parties where guests take 15-minute rapid #COVID19 tests and using private jets to hop from one ‘safe’ city to the next as they ride out the #pandemic” was posted on Twitter by Shinil Payamal on August 14, 2020.

Them lecturing us was the thing that got me. Then, you shake the hand of a guy that has been exposed to no less than 5 people who where also exposed. Rich people think this is a poor man’s virus, and that $ will shield them from global warming, only they are worthy of good health

@SciTheComedist

I think assholes like these rich stuck up clowns think #COVID19 is a dirty poor man’s virus. Like #IdiotInChief they think virus wouldn’t dare infect them. @realDonaldTrump encourages this wherever he goes.
#CloseBedminster and maybe @GOP will get some work done on #HEROESAct

“The coronavirus is a poor man’s virus,” a wealthy Silicon Valley resident told Vanity Fair.
