Everybody is making too big a deal of this Coronavirus thing

That was the comment a conservative friend gave me at lunch yesterday. He also pointed out that really bad epidemics were like the "Spanish flu" and we had not seen anything like that. He also pointed out that the flu goes around every year and we cope. 

 

He is right but the Spanish flu had a mortality rate of about 2% while the COVid-19 is looking to be 3.4% and we have no vaccines.  Also, it is not one or the other, it is both. We will have hospital beds taken up by regular flu patients and then overflowing with COVid-19.  The flu has 3-5 days where you could be contagious and not show symptoms, Covid-19 is 14 days. 

 

He seems to get all his medical advice from Trump.
