I didn't listen to the audio, but the text was just some political trash.

What is the definition of epidemic? I haven't found one yet, but a handful of people doesn't sound like an epidemic to me.

Corona is more deadly than the flu as a percent of people who contract it, but vastly fewer people contract it than the flu, and therefore your odds of dying from flu is vastly more probable than Corona. Why isn't the news talking about the flu pandemic? It's because we're used to it.

This isn't to say nothing should be done to slow the spread, but hysteria is not productive, and making this into a political issue speaks to the trashy nature of those willing to suspend rational thought.
