This sort of thing sells newspapers and engenders clicks. But it doesn’t make us any safer and it doesn’t actually convey the scope of the disease in the United States. It also doesn’t note that COVID-19 is far less deadly than the flu in the United States.

Thanks for the update, Dr Pepper.

People who continue to parrot this idea clearly don't understand how math works.

It ain't real until they start closing down Wal-Mart and Chick Fil A!

So what is the RATE of death for COVID-19 vs the run of the mill flu?

Hard to tell who watches Fox News.  The only people in the world trying to politicize a global virus so that the world will not know that Trump is an idiot.  Be safe regardless.

Pretty sure both sides are trying to “politicize”this thing. Don’t just make it about conservatives.

We don't know yet. It varies widely country by country as they take different strategies. US in particular is not widely testing so we don't know the denominator of the rate.

One thing I find interesting is Hong Kong and Singapore's success at containing this. They did a great job taking aggressive early measures but I also wonder if weather has a big impact on this. There has been a lot of speculation that this spread will naturally tails off in the summer as temps and humidity rises because that's often the case with these things. Could HK and Singapore lend credibility to that theory? It'll be interesting to see how things go in the southern hemisphere. That'll tell us if we'll catch a break in the summer. 

No. Australia hasn't seen rate drop offs so counting on warm weather is misleading. The reason those countries contained it well is that they tested almost everyone so they saw the trends and enacted containment protocols before it exploded. The US is sitting here without adequate testing so we have no data and can't see the trends early. It's gonna' be like shooting fish in a barrel.

Out of 39 US deaths, 26 of those came from 1 nursing home. 

Social media has a lot to do with this panic. Mind blowing.

I saw this and I definitely agree: 

“It would be really beneficial for all of us if we can change our way of thinking from just "am I going to get sick?" to "can my actions inadvertently put others at risk?”
