    as for my take....its interesting that no one is showing graphics to compare infection rate, hospitalization and total annual deaths for influenza (400-600k/yr world wide). is this a serious bug? absolutely. are we looking at a global meltdown of sanity, of course. at present, this coronavirus is looking to have polio-like numbers (taking into account pop numbers from 1950s vs now). the world didnt shut down then. nor did it shut down in the 1980s with the rise of HIV. what's changed? ...i have my own assumptions, but everyone needs to ask this of themselves. why this reaction for a virus that will not infect or kill as many people as the seasonal flu ?

    I'd love to hear your assumptions also! If you don't care to air it out here, you can always PM me, or leave a message on this site. Whatever you say will remain in total confidence b/t us, if you're willing, i.e.!
