Views on Hanks as a person or famous actor aside.. IMHO.. I do think the powers that be are doing a Psy-op- but I don't think the virus is a hoax. Let me explain. Besides him and someone coming down with it in the NBA.. world leaders and state representatives have been either testing positive for it (like in Florida, Brazil, Iran, Canada, Lebanon, Italy and the UK) or exposed to it (in same places and elsewhere Including the President of the United States and his daughter.) Certainly- considering the broad spectrum of the places of the outbreak- it's gotten very out of hand. The virus isn't taking political, or cultural sides. But the thing is, these are all rich and or elite people that can get tested very easily. I actually think other rich and elite people have it and aren't being honest. It makes me wonder how many people really have the virus then. Because they sure as hell have not been testing the general population especially in the western world for months.. and were trying to downplay the situation to keep life going on the same way it always has. Well, that seems to have blown up in their faces now. I feel as though the Psy op part was the downplaying, more than anything.
Not to get all Biblical here.. but in the Bible God sends numerous plagues against His people to try to turn them back to Him and to stop being wicked, idolatrous or following false prophets.. and alot of times in the Book He shakes His head at people actually not turning back to Him and away from these things and people and tells them directly that He is the one that sent the plague. Let's face it- it's not too far fetched considering how out of control our political, religious and cultural leaders are- and how brainwashed a lot if people are by them. Now nobody can do anything. Governments are perplexed, religious and holy sites shut down, concerts, sports events and movie and TV filming are being suspended, theme parks like Disney shut. the whole system we live in. And no one can do anything like they used to- just sit in isolation. From the rich and elite to every day people.
Edit: now 2 NY governors are also positive.
