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!
