the panic fomented by humanity in general is disappointing. We like to scare the shit out of each other and I just don't buy into it. The folks dying from coronavirus are those who are sick already, very old or very young. They could just as easily die from influenza which on average 20,000 Americans die from every year.
South Korea is a modern, advanced healthcare nation, and it has the most robust & reliable COVID19 data to date, and their death rate is currently running at 0.65% (and their scientists think that's likely a bit too high due to non-counting of asymptomatic & mild cases).
In short, with no exaggeration, I do believe this is the most over-hyped hysteria I've seen in my life on this planet. If you're > 65, stay safe. If you're young & healthy with no serious comorbidities, this is really not a big deal.
* Amen with one exception, the "very young" are not dying from COVID19, and doctors have no idea why. There are competing theories as to why, but the answer is unknown. Until we know, let's just be glad kids are not dying from coronavirus.
