    Re: Latest on the Corona Virus

    Just for some perspective here, the CDC reports that around 80000 people died last year from the flu.
    This new corona virus has a long way to go before it catches up.
    I'm not saying the new corona virus isn't bad, but influenza is still much worse.

    at the rate this one is spreading.. I feel you are sadly wrong. It is spreading faster in a short amount of time than ANY other flu type virus. up to eight in the USA as of this morning.

    deaths in China are over 3k.

    first reported in late December...

    Actually, the average annual death count is 74,363 for all pneumonia and influenza cases. Of that only 8.5% are from influenza.

    If it were to go pandemic world wide, experts expect it to be as bad or worse that the Spanish flu pandemic of 1918.
    China'''s coronavirus has '''the same death rate as Spanish flu '''

    More Than 75,000 Now Infected With Coronavirus, According to Medical Experts in Hong Kong

    More than 75,000 people may have become infected in China’s deadly coronavirus outbreak, a development that suggests the new disease may be far more viral than the public has been led to believe.
    Medical experts from the University of Hong Kong made the claim last week, modeling that the average person infected with the disease may go on to infect 2 or 3 other people. If the disease is so easily transmitted, it may be far more dangerous than previously thought.
    If 75,000 people are truly infected with the disease, it’s likely that its pervasiveness has doubled and tripled within matters of weeks or even days.
    A count of 75,000 goes well beyond any figures that the Chinese government has admitted to. The Chinese Communist Party has been accused of covering up the spread of the disease in order to protect its own image and that of China internationally.
    Alarming videos have emerged of Chinese public health workers removing bodies from residential apartments in body bags.
    A Home Security camera video allegedly from #China dated 01/02/2020 shows body-bags being silently transported out of homes almost legitimising what many whistleblowers have been calling a #Coronavirus cover up pic.twitter.com/MsWP4D9zff
