It has a higher mortality rate than the regular flu, but its related to the patient's overall condition. If I was at a high risk I'd worry more. Of course I'm getting older every day.

I've had the flu twice, both on Christmas Day. I had the Hong Kong Flu back in the early 1970s and some other flu around the turn of the century. Both times I felt like I was dead but I wasn't.

Sooner or later something will take me. I just hope not yet.

It's the flu combined with media hype, it will fizzle soon and you will all be scratching your head in wonder.

Big Pharma needs to drum-up some fear. Fear is the quickest way to get the population to give up our freedoms (whats left of them). Forced vaccines for all, not just school children any more.

The best part is how "woke" they are making this. You cannot call the corona virus "wuhan flu" because that's racist, and you cannot say that it originated in china, since china has proven it originated... somewhere else, and have blamed it all on the US.

Now they shutting everything down ...... why don't we do that each year during flu season ... shut down all major events, limit travel, etc. What's next, no in person grocery shopping! Media sure does have some major power and influence, I wonder how much of that 1.5 trillion tax dollars they will be receiving.

My Wife and I are figuring out how to cope, not with the virus, but with the panic. No panic, huh? Then why is there a run on toilet paper?

If you really want something to worry about, consider the overuse of hand sanitizer. I was at a seminar a few years ago where a rep from the Department of Health warned us about the overuse of anti-bacterials. Since many microbes are not harmful and sanitizer only kills most, not all, we are creating an environment in which the remaining harmful ones can prosper. Consider a room full of people and one is an axe murderer. The group together can overpower the menace. But if there's only two people in the room and one is an axe murderer then the other person is in big trouble. Sanitizer is killing off our friends, too.

Here from the warzone.
It's not yust a little flew, it killes people.
No Idea about the toilet paper but considering the virus. Mouthcaps, handgel, gloves etc won't help you not to get the virus.
Washing you're hands a few times a day will.
Every time you touch something and touch you're face later will give you the virus.
On the other hand, if you're healthy it will only be a flew.
Problem is when you don't get sick (but are a carrier) and you visit you're parents or friends who visit their parents.
Elderly people are not so strong and healthy.
You wouldn't want to live the rest of you're life with the idea you killed you're father or mother.
