    Did you know that the gal from the CDC who waited until Trump was out of the country to attempt to induce panic by screaming, "We're all going to die!" is Rod Rosenstein's sister?

    Is the coronavirus really any worse than the common flu?

    I'm not too worried. Most people who are exposed never even show symptoms, and from there we'll begin seeing immunity.

    Within two years, this will all be mostly-forgotten history.

    Covid 19 threatens to be a major hit on the world economy.

    The mortality rate looks to be about 10 times that of the flu (maybe around 1% of those infected), over-80 years old has a 14% death rate. These are based on data out of China, so should be taken with a grain of salt, although it seems to me that China is unlikely to be over-reporting their mortality rates. Certainly from the government reaction there they think it's a lot worse than the flu.

    Given what we know so far about how infectious the virus is (high transmission rate) and how widely it has already spread, a pandemic seems more likely than not. That could mean millions of people worldwide dying.

    False.

    n reality, the pandemic expert — Rear Adm. Timothy Ziemer — left the National Security Council (NSC) voluntarily after then-National Security Advisor John Bolton was appointed.

    Bolton disbanded the unit that Ziemer was supervising as part of an effort to downsize the bloated NSC staff. The purpose of the unit, which had overseen the global fight against Ebola, had largely been fulfilled.

    It is true that Ziemer and his unit have not yet been replaced.

    The Trump administration has indeed proposed cuts to the CDC, but they have not been passed by Congress.

    Trump has not “defunded” the agency, and Secretary of Health and Human Services Alex Azar has said that the new proposed budget would, in fact, prioritize the fight against coronavirus.

    Recently, the administration reversed course, asking for $2.5 billion in emergency funding for managing the coronavirus.

    Really FF, must you always bring up Trump? I think there is medication for that...

    I heard they will have a vaccine soon. The problem will be ramping up production fast enough. That's the main reason the flu mortality is so low nowadays. Vaccines. If we didn't have a flu vaccine I think the mortality would be much higher.

    Just hope the virus doesn't start mutating every year like the flu does.
