While President Trump was declaring a public health emergency (Jan.31) and instituting travel bans, the media was more concerned about the flu.

Even after it was announced VP Mike Pence was to lead the White House Coronavirus task force (Feb. 26) that was formed in January, mainstream media was still downplaying the severity of Coronavirus.

You can watch for yourself some of the media coverage in the video above.
