Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh said the coronavirus is being weaponized to bring down President Donald Trump.

Limbaugh made his remarks during his radio show Monday.

"Folks, this coronavirus thing, I want to try to put this in perspective for you," he said. "It looks like the coronavirus is being weaponized as yet another element to bring down Donald Trump.

"Now, I want to tell you the truth about the coronavirus. I'm dead right on this. The coronavirus is the common cold, folks."

He blasted the media for hyping the outbreak.

"It's really being hyped as a deadly Andromeda Strain or Ebola pandemic, as 'Oh, my God, if you get it, you're dead,'" he said.

Limbaugh claimed the survival rate is 98% among those who have the coronavirus.

"You have to read very deeply to find that number, that 2% of the people get the coronavirus die," he said. "That's less than the flu, folks. That is a far lower death statistic than any form of influenza, which is an annual thing that everybody gets shots for. There's nothing unusual about the coronavirus."

Limbaugh's remarks came as the World Health Organization said it is uncertain whether the coronavirus outbreak can be prevented from spreading further globally.
