Also World Health Organization has declared it a pandemic

Affects the elderly the most, especially in terms of death rate.  Not to say young/young(ish) folks shouldn't be cautious, but recovery rates are very high in non-eldery adults.

The world has lost its mind. The regular old flu killed 34,000 in the US last year even though we have the flu shot yet everybody went on about life. 

325 mil x 33% infection rate x 3% mortality.  

is that a bigger number than 34k?  Lmk.

Death rate is much higher than the flu

It’s not really a known value yet. I think it’s about 3% but most of the deaths are from China which may skew that number. They will have to analyze the data from those that have died. Like most respiratory viruses those that are immunocompromised like the elderly, babies, and those with chronic conditions are where the deaths come from. The problem is science doesn’t know much about the virus yet. So I understand the precaution.

All this fear of Corona virus is getting out of hand since it isn't as bad a s people have thought since the only deaths were with the elderly that have respiratory problems. According to a NY Doctor that specializes in this sort of thing said making this a pandemic is immature and there is no reason to consider it as a pandemic.

Stay safe people!  US has officially shut down all travel from Europe except UK and NBA just suspended its season indefinitely after player(s) tested positive.

I live in Tacoma Washington...I know all too well about this getting out of hand now.

You honestly think there will be  about 3 million deaths in the US related to the virus?

3% is skewed from the high %s in Wuhan province. Rest of China is closer to 1%, and thats not even considering people who have it but are unaware and think its just the flu / common cold

The problem is we have millions of at risk and elderly folks in the US. Hospitals cannot take in a massive influx of folks who need ICU on top of other reasons people get put in ICU. This is very scary and even people who are not at risk need to think about the people in their lives, their family members, etc. who they can give this to. 
 

this virus spreads like wildfire and is wayyy more contagious then the flu. The flu has a death rate of .01. This has a death rate of 3.4%. Even if it’s just 1% that is a HUGE deal. 
 

people really need to think about social distancing, especially to people who are at risk. Wash your hands. Cancel plans. This is serious. Do not play this off.

Fine, use 1%. That’s still a lot of people.
