You must be familiar with climate activist Greta Thunberg who was also named as the Time’s person of the year recently. Happens to be, she has been selected as one of the experts’ for CNN’s discussion on Coronavirus pandemic.
The panel will include CNN broadcaster Sanjay Gupta, 50, the former Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, 71 and former Centers for Disease Control and Prevention director Richard Besser, 60. The programme “Coronavirus Facts and Fears” will be hosted by CNN anchor Anderson Cooper.
Howevere, the presence of Greta is being questioned by netizens who believe what a climate activist will know about health crisis which is not so climatic in nature.
Author Mike Dice criticising CNN wrote, “Cuz a teenager best known for skipping school is who CNN considers an expert virologist.”
As the news spread across the internet, a good chunk of people came forward to show their displeasure about what we believe is a publicity stunt by CNN. Have a look:

That deranged Swedish teenager has morphed from being the world’s top climatologist to being the world’s top epidemiologist.
What next for her? Rocket science? Genetic engineering? Brain surgery?
