I see talk on here that this is just the overblown flu. Really, they have shut down Italy do you think the Italians? China are just misinformed fools? I think not! The best way to look at his is the Flu on steroids very very catchable. Older folks seem to have a higher death rate then young folks they can be carriers they shed the virus but may not be sick. Now the percent of folks who will die is much higher than the 1 to 3%. might be 10 to %. We are still getting information and the news we are getting is not on the good side of wishful thinking. Talk like this can make folks scared and rightfully so, so earlier on some experts were not giving info that was on the scary side. Warm weather will probably help slow it down not a for sure thing. So, if a huge city gets the flu on steroids think of what that could do a a place, The hospitals are overwhelmed in the rest of world they are playing god in some cases deciding who has a shot of living moving folks in and out of the ICU based on the idea who will likely live. This is not a run of the mill flu!
