nCov (General)

I've been watching the news after a few days of not watching it, and I must say things seem to have been blown out of perspective. I listen to BBC Newshour pretty much daily, but that's audio, obviously, so I don't get the full visual impact of what's going on.

A couple times a week I watch Reuters News https://www.reuters.com/video. Today they had a story about a funeral person getting suited up like he was dealing with someone who died of ebola. We're all going to be exposed to this sooner or later, so I don't quite understand the full on hysteria.

The thing about viruses is that if they are really super deadly, they don't last because they tend to kill off their hosts. This is not horribly deadly, it's just very, very contagious because nobody has immunity and because it has lots and lots of hosts because it's not deadly but highly contagious.
