These numbers are from the internet so can certainly be disputed, but just LOOK at the numbers. These are the deaths for the flu world wide:
2015  51,000
2016  23,000
2017  38,000
2018  62,000
2019  17,000
Covid-19 (Coronavirus) 4,641 world wide as of 3/11. There were 37 deaths in the US as of 3/12.

My perspective is as an American. I know a little of what is happening around the globe, but like everyone I care more about my home. I refuse to watch main stream media because all they do is lie and exaggerate. I follow Fox news, and no they aren't perfect, but a damn site better than CNN, NBC, CBS, ABC and all the other lefty news sites. I believe we have the best health care specialists and researchers in the world, and the steps taken by our government were needed. What isn't needed is the constant hyping by the media. Most people follow that crap and gee wiz, now we have a panic. All I'm saying is to just use common sense. If you are more likely to be hit by lightning than die of corona virus, then there is no need for panic. Yes we need to take precautions, and yes more people will die, but this will end and the US will probably be better off than most. Early action has saved lives. Some of the stock market crash was caused by the Russians manipulating the oil market, but come on -give me a break- most this is the media hype over corona. Its click bait. End of tirade. ALL of you be well.

All I know is the Airlines are gonna take a HEAVY hit from this, and no entity deserves it more than them. I love the fact what goes around, came around. 

they charge you tons of money for everything, treat you like shit and seat you like cattle. 

Now they are showing they are fogging the jets pre flight. THIS should be done anyway and always!

I say Good!

I have been saying all along that the mainstream media is hyping the shit out of this & whipping everyone into a panic. All you need to do is use common sense, & there lies the problem, the idiots who are panicking have no common sense. Take precautions, & be careful.

I hope you are right Mike, but when you see what is now happening in Italy and that their health system is overwhelmed I think the strong approach is the right approach.  Panic buying is stupid though......there will be shortages but nothing critical.  If its gets really bad I will head out and knock over a few deer for meat.

I thought this was interesting:

From Forbes.com

Study: Coronavirus Lockdown Likely Saved 77,000 Lives In China Just By Reducing Pollution...lives saved due to the pollution reductions are roughly 20x the number of lives that have been directly lost to the virus,” Burke writes, using statistics current on March 8.
