How about a few facts on the coronavirus scare. First, masks won’t stop you from getting it. Ask the CDC. Second, check out the deaths in China in relation to the population. Third, the common flu in this country accounted for 280,000 hospitalizations this flu season as of Feb. 15. The CDC reports there have been 16,000 flu-related deaths during this flu season among our population of 330 million. That’s from the common flu, not coronavirus. Figure the odds!
China has a population of 1,437,000,000. There have been about 3,000 deaths from coronavirus to date. Figure the odds!
Worldwide, there have been just over 3,100 deaths from corona virus. Could it be that the frenzy over this type of flu is slightly overstated? Perhaps it’s time to step back and take a deep breath without the mask.
Finally, you might want to check out the website “Contagion Live” on the internet. Good information.
Actually, the sky is not falling!
