    I'm not worried for me. I'm worried for my older relatives who are all over 75 and lead very active lifestyles.

    I agree. It's very easy to contain the virus if everyone adheres to simple hygiene habits, but most people won't. From what I've read about the virus so far, If everyone washes their hands and wears cheap masks (that stop spit from flying off when they talk obnoxiously loud and cough in public transport) there will be zero new cases. But no.

    Look at china, with all the precautions everyone takes the number of new cases is close to zero, despite so many people already being sick. But their culture is different, everyone wearing a mask when he's sick because of empathy toward other people has been a thing long before the coronavirus there. That's not the case in the western world and I think it will be impossible to contain in europe/usa.

    I think it's a load of crap personally.

    Yeah it's unfortunate that older people are dying but that's the case with the regular flu too.

    I've read a few articles now that say they reckon the amount of cases is probably only half to a third of people who actually have the virus.

    We only really hear about the serious cases where people are actually ill enough to go to the doctors or hospital.

    So while it might look like a high mortality rate, in actual fact they believe it to be below 1%.

    There are people who literally get this virus and have zero symptoms at all.

    In fact there are two British people in Vietnam right now in quarantine who were intercepted mid holiday because a woman on their flight tested positive.

    They have absolutely nothing wrong with them, they are more worried about the unsanitary conditions in the hospital isolation ward they've been placed on that coronavirus.

    It's just fear mongering by the media and people on social media chewing it all up and regurgitating it with to anyone who will listen.

    The only thing that scares me about this virus is how worrying it would be if an actual deadly virus broke out, one with even a 50% mortality rate.

    Because as we've seen it can spread the globe very fast and it is virtually impossible to contain, now that's scary.

    The mortality is at least 3% from latest WHO studies, and it's very worrying to see in some peak areas can reach as much as 20%. Countries aren't in lockdown because of bogus numbers. Italy already has over 1,000 people in ICU.

    This is nothing like the flu, which we know so well, it's super predictable, we have very effective vaccines, and doesn't kill you in days. Most people that die from the flu totally ignore symptoms and get on living their lives until it's a serious illness. Coronavirus go straight to your lungs and when it goes wrong, you develop pneumonia and die in days.

    A virus that kills 50% - as per your example - never spreads this way, simply because it's way easier to track and measures are way more restrict. You have that example from Ebola, which kills over 70% of the infected, but the containment is so harsh that it doesn't move from one outbreak.

    Similar story with SARS in 2002, also from China, this had a death rate of around 10%, therefore containment was way stronger, it infected circa 8,000 people and killed 770.

    What makes this virus way more dangerous is exactly what you mentioned about so many people have only mildly symptoms. You mention this as a positive, which is not. Those are perfect vehicles for it to spread super-fast and without any control measures. Italy can see this happening, hence the full lockdown.

    So guys, it's not just a flu, I'm not worried for my health, I'm young it's hard that any of us will have a serious problem, but there is to be worried about our older family members and our economy.

    Not worried in the slightest - it's just posh flu as far as I can tell. If I was already sick and in a bad way I might worry though!

    Dang it! I was thinking about the swine flu (wasnt as bad) and SARS. Now when I Googled SARS, its outbreak was in 2003.

    So I guess I shouldn't have said that you must be young, when the case is that I must be old. I will kick myself in the butt for that comment. :anyway:
