Is everyone dead yet?  You guys know the regular flu has killed 5 times more people in just USA alone.  The young and old will always die.

Interestingly, the young are pretty resistant to Covid 2019, more so than middle-aged, in fact. The older you are, the more susceptible you are to this coronavirus.

Extremely naive viewpoint.

The flu is everywhere. The coronavirus is basically contained in a major city thanks to a totalitarian regime. You better pray a vaccine will show up one day before the coronavirus gets as widespread a the flu.

Virus is spreading fast in South Korea:

"On Friday, the country reported 52 new confirmed cases after 53 on Thursday. South Korea now has a total of 156 cases making it the largest cluster outside mainland China and the cruise ship docked off Japan."

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-51582186



and with Iran only identifying 3 ppl with the virus after death it seems likely it has already spread quite a lot there, especially because a Canadian traveler has been diagnosed after returning from Iran .. another problem, they have legislative elections today, so millions of people should be out and about there



The virus most certainly has broken out in Iran and South Korea. The former likely has thousands of unaccounted cases.



 

 

 

 

 

Looking forward to my trip to Japan this year. Gonna be a lot fewer Chinese tourists this time.
