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.
I'd say it's political when it's something people look to governments to solve then said governments (example: ours) don't respond with rationality, science, and logic.

Almost five thousand people have died from Corona, but 12,000 died from the flu between 10/01 and 02/01.
The first Coronavirus death was 01/09 and if 7,000 people die in the next 57 days it will be as bad as the flu, but will it go away on its own?

The link above has changed the trash text that I had commented to.

I don't follow politics, but I don't need the POTUS to tell me to wash my hands and avoid sick people.

Unhygenic China CCP

FYI

The world as we and I know of it. We are now reaping the world wind from China/CCP a country that lies a whole host of issues.

Created world ozone hole by using ban chemicals and process

Uses prison labor for profit

Pollutes own country and others

Strips away mineral and natural resources

Ocean dead zone surrounds country with no ocean life

Steals technology, intellectual property, and sells low quality knockoffs

Allowed unregulated WET markets to sell wildlife that has now created a coronavirus Pandemic … 4700 death toll and counting
Italy lockdown
USA franchise sports no season near term
Many USA colleges will not return from spring break.
Cruise Ships and Airlines like mini incubation for outbreak

The China party aka CCP and 3000 members and XI Jinping are in downward race of loathe some leaders.. The unhygenic China Nationals are pathetic additionally who have further spread the coronavirus

The number of new cases (that we KNOW of, which is probably far fewer than actual, because of poor testing rates) - is growing exponentially. Here in the US, it is KNOWN to be in 40 states.

Things are being shut down and canceled, and our medical system could easily be overwhelmed, very quickly.

It is going to get a LOT worse, in a short period of time.

Not a good time to run out of toilet paper?

Those who recently expired from 'flu' would be an interesting cohort to test. It might reveal something novel.

I had heard that part of it was a decline of Chinese imports.

You used to be able to buy a gallon of hand sanitizer for $12, but it is out of stock: https://www.webstaurantstore.com/nob...NOVOFISAN.html

The best that I can find now is $15 for 7.4 ounces on Amazon. It isn't quite in-stock, though: https://www.amazon.com/ArtNaturals-N...dp/B085PW23XY/
