Plus, there may very well have been more cases, but misdiagnosed as a heavy pneumonia instead (just like what the new coronavirus was originally considered to be).

it's a lot more likely the mild to asymptomatic cases of the diseases were missed/ not diagnosed. Last I heard "only" about 25% of the patients display serious symptoms.
