  6. It is less deadly than seasonal flu at the moment, but then... seasonal flu is a known quantity, and we can predictably foresee peaks and troughs of infections, likely strains, and take preventative action.

    Scientists don’t know what the fuck karenavirus is going to do after March, and when you’ve got previous like the 1918 pandemic then it’s understandable that there’s been such a robust response.

  7. I hate this mess and I'm so glad to be working from home, succesfully managing to avoid all those dummies wearing face masks, deadly virus talk and what not. The groceries stores are half empty by now too.

    The panic here has been reaching peak after peak and there's not a single case confirmed yet. I'm pretty sure there will be some at some point and I don't wanna imagine what's gonna happen then.

    Should we all re-watch that Futurama episode where Fry has to be quarantined because he brought back the common cold after being extinct for hundreds of years?
     
  10. 9 cases in UK, 12 cases in Iran, 12 more cases in Japan, 200 cases in 2 weeks in Italy, US calling for 300 million masks...

    all this from a bat?

    One confirmed case in Brasil and the memes are great.

    I'm at the point where I've read all the actual scientific and important information about it and everything else is media fearmongering, so why bother reading it?
     
  13. That troll twitter account though... I...

    Its now called Covid-19. Might be helpful to have the real name in the thread title if we’re going to disproportionally freak out about it.

  16. The concern about this in the US seems so dramatic. I have crippling anxiety and even I’m not worried about it yet

  19. The major issue isn't the mortality rate. It's if health care systems around the world have the capacity to take care of a sudden influx of patients, while still upholding their standard level of health care.

    The mortality is probably lower than reported, since there is most likely a large amount of undiagnosed cases where the infected only have had minor symptoms or no symptoms at all.
     
  20. I live in a country where the health system is completely shattered. So, god knows what the stats are. My only real worry is for the elderly, like my mother, since they are the ones most at risk with this thing.
