The positive thing is getting the virus isn’t terminal. 41 people out of 1,200 infected so far have died and the vast majority being elderly and having previous respiratory issues.
The BBC is saying only one younger and healthier person, who’s a doctor, has died so far.
SAR, MERS, and the common cold are all forms of a coronavirus.
Something I never knew till today.
Sorry but the common flu this past year has killed 61200 which is 0.14% of all who had it.
This Coronavirus has killed 3.41% at the moment but that is only a small sample size. That is why there is so much concern regarding it.
I completely understand it’s worse than the common flu and I didn’t say otherwise.
My point is that it’s not as concerning as the likes of Ebola and the vast majority will survive it. I agree it’s still very bad news but there are positives.
It spreads easier than ebola though that is my point, common flu normally kills the elderly or the really young and is still only 0.14%. Where as this is 3.41% already and that is with a small sample size. If it spreads into all of China we could end up seeing an awful amount of deaths.
I just worry about the Chinese Government and how honest they will be about the whole situation, I don't trust them one bit. UK Government is trying to track 2000 people who have been in that Wuhan city!
I'm getting the bags packed ready to flee to the Winchester until it all blows over.
