Default New coronavirus - more deadly than the flu, I think

Fear breeds loss of clear thinking.... fear breeds suspicion... fear takes people out.

Right now, we just don't have enough information.

Doesn't the run-of-the-mill flu kill a bunch of folks every year?

There may be something else going on here.

Who was it that said "Don't let a good crisis go to waste?"

Be prudent, be safe, just don't lose your minds is what I would be thinking.
Hi Millard,

I agree with you - I think information is still sparse...

To my knowledge...

* The new coronavirus (Covid-19) could be more deadly than the flu...

I've read 80% of people who get it have few or no symtpoms. 20% who get it have serious symptoms. About 10% of those with serious symptoms die.

(That is, overall, 2% of those who get the new coronavirus, die.)

In the USA, the flu kills about 0.1% of those who get it - that is, about 1 in 1000.

So the new coronavirus looks like it is 20 times more deadly than the flu.

* It also may be more contagious than the flu... But I think the jury is out on this so far...

I'm keeping tabs on the whole thing...

- Dien
