Pandemic Rising

This headline screams trouble. Big trouble.

New coronavirus spreads as readily as 1918 Spanish flu...
...As communicable as was the 1918 Spanish flu, which killed 50 million and became the deadliest pandemic in recorded history....
As of this posting, the coronavirus has spread to every region of Mainland China.

There is another statistic that came out yesterday; 2% of those who contract Coronavirus are dying (at this time).

If that continues, basically what that means is old people and the infirm.

Healthy people are likely not dying en masse from Coronavirus.

I could be wrong though. It is too early to tell.

Pakistani students in Wuhan are frightened. One of them messaged me a few hours ago and asked the govt is considering evacuating them. I told her Dr Mirza said not right now.
Her reaction: They won't even allow families to bury us in Pakistan because they can't control virus.

Twenty percent who get the virus become severely ill. Two percent die.

Should this ramp up in our nation there will not be a "good outcome" as envisioned by our POTUS. I support the President, but he is bit too cheerful for me, regarding the virus.
