Well...Cuomo is a Democrat, so he should share the blame with the media.

How does this situation compare with the Swine Flu from 2009?


How does the media coverage of this situation differ?


Gee, I wonder why?

What I have heard corona virus is much more virulent that the common flu virus and indeed much more contagious.

CDC urges elderly to stock up on food, stay home amid coronavirus fears




Elderly Americans and people with underlying health conditions should stock up on food and prepare to isolate themselves at home since they are the most at risk of getting seriously ill from the coronavirus, a senior health official said Monday.


Messonnier said the findings from the study determined that about 15 to 20 percent of the Chinese patients studied developed serious illness.


Risk of serious illness increased for patients 60 and older and was the highest for people 80 and older.


Existing health conditions, such as diabetes and heart disease, also increases the risk.


People in these high-risk categories should avoid close contact with people who are sick, avoid crowds in poorly ventilated spaces, and avoid all non-essential travel like plane trips, according to the CDC.


The advice is part of new recommendations from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention aimed at the most vulnerable populations and stems partly from a new study of 70,000 Chinese patients with the virus.


“Have enough household items and groceries so that you will be prepared to stay home for a period of time,” Nancy Messonnier, a senior CDC official, said in a conference call Monday.

If it's half as contagious as SARS then why is the media getting everyone in to a panic?


There must be some uterior motive, I wonder what it could be....?

So....coronavirus. Based on everything that the CDC and medical professionals (NOT THE MEDIA, and I'm saying that as a registered Democrat) have released in terms of information, COVID-19 appears to be more dangerous for folks over 60 and especially over 80. Italy has one of the oldest populations (on average) in the world and that is part of the reason why they are getting hit so hard. I have not seen any figures or research that show COVID-19 is more dangerous for folks under 50 (including children) than pneumonia or the flu. The differences (obviously) are that COVID-19 does not have a "flu shot" and there appears to be some degree of airborne/community transmission.


It is hard for me to ignore the figures of COVID-19 vs. flu (www.hopkinsmedicine.org/health/condition...):


COVID-19Approximately 3,995 deaths reported worldwide; 22 deaths in the U.S., as of Mar. 9, 2020.


Flu: 291,000 to 646,000 deaths worldwide; 12,000 to 61,000 deaths in the U.S. per year.
