My wife is a RN in our local hospital, she works right along side MD's all day long. According to them (RN's and MD's) this is being blown way out of proportion. Wash your hands. You know, good personal hygiene.
My wife is a 37 year veteran Med Tech working for RWJ Barnabas, specializing in Immunology. She states same as above in terms of this being blown out of proportion, barring the infirm, the elderly, and folks with compromised health, i.e., the man who passed yesterday from NJ. But don't get me wrong...you won't see me on any commercial flights, cruise ships, or indoor stadium venues.
Forgot to mention....
The real threat here is the potential for the virus to mutate down the road and come back with a vengeance. Yes, it will take its toll on folks in in its current form, but if it mutates as many viruses do, an exponential leap in cases and death toll can result. Not trying to go to the dark side or ruin anyone's evening, but this is the factual reality of the situation. Lets hope the virus stays in its current form and we get past the first hurdle, in hopes it ends there.

That happened in 1918. Calmed down in the summer, and killed millions in October.

Viruses mutate constantly. Most mutations are not viable and actually work against the virus.

As for your local RN saying this is being blown out of proportion, sorry but they aren’t experts on this.

Go read some information from experts on infectious diseases.

This isn’t the fucking flu. Read some scientific explanations about viruses and disease. Understand the math that experts are doing.

The next time someone tells you this is a bad flu remind them that HIV (a virus) causes bad flu symptoms for a couple weeks after contraction. Then frequently all symptoms go away - often for 10 or more years. Then the virus hits back wirh a vengeance and the subject moves into full blow AIDS (the disease).

This isn’t the flu. It’s a disease called SARS-CoV-2 that’s caused by the virus COVID-19. Experts don’t even completely understand this yet.

Remember - the plural of anecdote is not data. Same concept applies here - read some reliable information, not propaganda, or opinions of non-experts.

Not an original Harv!

One other important piece of data that makes this much more serious than influenza is that wirh the flu, rates of hospitalization are well under 1% of cases. So far with COVID-19 it’s estimated at 10-15%. That rate, wirh the projected rate of transmission, will overwhelm our health care system

So we all have only 10 more years left?!

Better make every turn out there count!

Are you an expert? You certainly pretend to be one on here. What qualifies you over an RN or a MD.

Are you a fucking  big deal or something?
