    So you get the virus and then what? You have symptoms, and then they eventually go away? Or you continue to suffer?

    I think that has a lot more to do with this virus than that administration. The market has crashed. College and Pro teams are canceling the remainder of the season. Borders are being closed off, and some travel to and fro many countries are being greatly restricted. Disney just shut its doors indefinitely. Schools are closing. The CDC is advising elderly not travel and everyone should have a couple weeks worth of necessities. The WHO is now calling this a pandemic, Italy is performing triage on patients in most of their hospitals, and Iran appears to be digging mass graves according to satellite imagery. Hell Trump was on TV last night promising socialism packages (economic assistance) that looked like he morphed into Bernie Sanders, and this only 2 weeks after calling it a media and democrat hoax and saying the flu was worse. Sorry, but I think given the facts, your comparison might be greatly off.

I work for the same company that dealt with the Ebola cases so this isn't my first rodeo. To make matters worse for me is as a follow up with my GP from my Hospital stay, he couldn't understand why I was there other than to talk shop and couldn't justify charging me 35 bucks for an office visit. We then went through the list of Vaccines out there. He'd name one and I'd say "check". Came to the shingles vax and I needed that one. So 10 bucks for a shingles vax. So now I feel a bit low energy and run a very slight fever so if I shake someone's hand I have to explain Shingles vax, not Corona, not Covid-19 and not de Ebolas. It would be comical if it wasn't so damned infuriating at how blindly the sheeple follow the lame stream media.
    In case anyone's wondering..... in a population of the US of 328 Million people, there have been 39 recorded deaths with the vast majority happening at a retirement home in the NE.
    Good info, thanks. Were you around during the Swine Flu? I wonder how is this tracking with the Swine Flu? I know there were around 12K deaths with it, and I don't remember any panic, but how are the numbers and timeline--is this coming on bigger/faster, the same, or otherwise?

    H1N1 swine flu in 2009-10 killed 30,000 in US including 1800 children (it infected 18,000,000)

    .2% death rate

    Twice that of regular flu

    Our country did not go bonkers then

    What the heck is wrong with us now?

    Talking about bonkers and over-reaction, New Mexico just an hour ago closed ALL public schools in the entire state starting next Monday, for the next three weeks.



    What in the world is going on?! Is there an asteroid heading our way that they're not telling us about, or sumthin'?

    People are panicking/over-reacting now because people see persistent/repetitive incompetence of US local and federal government in handling the problem. Then seeing the data of what happened in China and what is unfolding now in Italy and a few other countries.

    If people can't rely on basic government functions to maintain relative security, health, and order, it's every person for themselves mentality like people bailing off a ship with widespread large fires in multiple areas.

    I'd love to hear how you think the government should handle it

    The premise that the government caused the over-reaction is flawed

    The fake news media is to blame... Stupid lying media caused the panic

    My article is 'inappropriate content', vox.com

    The article shows new cases flattening off in China and the mortality rate declining significantly.

    The other article I read talks about the deaths in the USA. Many in the Washington old folks home, none noted under 60 years old.

    ...When my eldest son asked me what he should have done, had he been present when I was almost fatally assaulted in 1908, whether he should have run away and seen me killed or whether he should have used his physical force which he could and wanted to use, and defended me, I told him that it was his duty to defend me even by using violence.
