I don’t get why the entire world is freaking out about Covid19. (1) be cautious, (2) don’t visit elderly relatives, but the way I see it- everyone’s going to come into contact with it- it’s inevitable

I’ve seen like a million variants of this post in the past two weeks. One do a little bit of research. Two realize that just because it’s unlikely to effect you doesn’t mean it couldn’t substantially effect a large group of people. Three your post is a zero value add. People have explained a million times why it’s a big deal, looks at those answers or read literally any experts view and then “get it”

The reasoning for cancelling large events with concentrations of people is to reduce the probability of an outbreak crushing the healthcare system. Here's a graph to illustrate the concept.

Agree, it’s a bit much, but keep in mind there’s a lot of immune deficient people aside from the elderly. Pregnant women (many of which have to continue to work bc yay family leave laws of the US), people with autoimmune disorders, lupus.. Etc It’s about being smart for the greater good of people who physically cannot protect themselves. It’s very scary for those vulnerable people right now and uncertainty builds that up.

Because dumb is the greatest contagion of all. "Great" meaning large or immense, we use it in the pejorative sense.

Because it has twenty times mortality rate of flu and will overwhelm medical systems if not actively contained.

I’m confused. Even for the people who think they’re under 60 and not at increased risk...do you ACTUALLY want to be sick? Do you want diarrhea, fever, chest pain and all that could potentially come with COVID? I’ve had an upper respiratory infection for two weeks before and I sure as hell never want another one again. And I imagine even that is not as bad as COVID can be. Or even the flu, at the worst take some theraflu, NyQuil or some other OTC and you’ll manage. What do y’all plan on taking for COVID?

There is a ton of uncertainty which I think is the cause of fear. This could become ‘just another flu’ strain which don’t materially impact death rates relative to seasonal flu death. This could has limited death toll but require multiple large cities to quarantine. This could infect millions in the US at the 3.4% mortality rate baselined thus far.

The baseline is overstated. Based on inappropriate sampling.

I sure hope the US mortality rate stabilizes below the mean
