Carona vs Swine Flu vs Ebola

Is Carona much ado about nothing?


As of today:

https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/


Carona 130,000 cases, 4,757 deaths, 68,000 recovered so far

Total deaths for:


Swine Flu 12,469 deaths


Ebola 11,310 deaths


2019 - 2020 US flu season: CDC estimates 20,000 to 52,000 deaths

Yup. Never let a crisis go to waste.
Someone is capitalizing on this "pandemic"......

It is a real shame that people in influential positions have to make themselves relevant.
Politicians are thinking more about their "party" than their constituents...
TV news personalities curving the news to get more ratings then just reporting the facts and reinforcing calm.

I can see it now...when this thing is over, and hopefully the US comes out in fairly good shape due to the precautions being taken, those who feel we should be approaching this with a laissez-faire attitude will say "see, I told you it was no big deal".

The media has certainly sensationalized things, and that doesn't help. But there are consequences to an outbreak such as this that can not be avoided. Anybody equating covid19 to influenza is either incapable of understanding virology or doesn't want to accept the facts. The coronavirus is exponentially more deadly and much more contagious than the flu. It has'n't killed as many number wise because it has not been around as long as influenza. Best to look to science, and not politics for guidance in such issues.

Trump is doing as much as anybody can. Somethings in this world are beyond the control of any human being.

Dem-panic....LOL, that is a good one. I like it!

I'd be pretty concerned if I were elderly, had health problems, or if I had a family member in that category.

And just like that, Wolff ordered all the schools, events, and non-"essential" businesses closed for 2 weeks starting tomorrow.....
Like that'll help..
Upside is I can work 100% remote and now get 2 weeks of extra time with my girls... I foresee two weeks of very long lunch "hours" ...

Problem is they are still learning about this strain of the virus. Supposedly it mutated from a corona virus in animals but it seems to infect person to person very easily to have come from that route. I think if you are healthy with no underlying conditions it isn't too bad. Elderly and those with respiratory problems should be careful. I'm sure we will find out a lot more about this strain quickly.

Was not paying much attention to the school closings and the cancellation of sporting events but now a local gun show has been cancelled and this thing has taken on serious proportions as far as I am concerned.
That's right; got no kids and I could not care less about sports. But when this thing impacts gun shows, well my friends this is unacceptable.
Was planning on dumping my entire come tax refund on stuff.

Just in Montgomery County or statewide?

The reporting on this is reaching off the charts ridiculous levels.

They’ve been reporting that there have been 20+ coronavirus cases in PA but then today the headline changed to “2 CONFIRMED cases, 20+ PRESUMPTIVE cases”. In other words, someone went to the doctor with flu like symptoms and were just PRESUMED to have corona....
