Here’s a hypothetical question — again this is totally hypothetical with no truth to it (sarcasm) — but, what if another “mysterious” illness originating from China happened to be gaining steam along the exact same timeline as COVID did four years ago? How would you react? Would you adhere at all to any mandates or anything of the like?

Well, I hate to burst anyone’s bubble, but that actually might be happening despite the same experts saying there’s nothing initially to worry about — like they did four years ago.

Five Republican senators have penned a letter to President Joe Biden calling on him to enact a travel ban on China “due to an alarming spike in an unknown respiratory illness inside the communist nation,” Fox News reported.

The first time I read the quote part of the previous paragraph, I had a brief moment of deja vu like I had read that before — like we did four years ago.

There is one difference between this time and the last that won’t make you think you time travelled. This new, “mysterious” illness reportedly targets children instead of the elderly, which is the demographic that COVID primarily targeted.

As for the letter, it was authored and sent by five GOP senators: Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), Sen. JD Vance (R-Ohio), Sen. Rick Scott (R-Fla.), Sen. Tommy Tuberville (R-Ala.) and Sen. Mike Braun (R-Ind.).

According to Fox News, here’s some of what the senators wrote in their letter to the president:

"During the COVID-19 pandemic, the CCP’s obfuscation of the truth, and lack of transparency, robbed the United States of vital knowledge about the disease and its origin," the lawmakers wrote.

"That means we should immediately restrict travel between the United States and [China] until we know more about the dangers posed by this new illness.

"A ban on travel now could save our country from death, lockdowns, mandates, and further outbreaks later.”

"Many officials and commentators — including you — criticized his decision as being influenced by ‘xenophobia.’ But history and common sense show his decision was the right one," the letter to Biden said.

Folks, just in case — I’m not a doctor, so take this as a personal opinion and not as medical advice — but, you might want to stock up on Vitamins C and D to keep your immune system boosted so you don’t eventually have to take any actual booster in the future.

Oh, and don’t pay attention to the almost exact same timing of these stories that occurred during the inception or duration of COVID. Nothing to see here (wink, wink).
