Didn't find a thread on the Wuhan corona virus.


Here's an interesting map distribution of the Wuhan corona virus:

There have been about 15,000,000 cases, 140,000 hospitalizations, and 8,200 deaths from the flu in the US alone this season. I could be wrong, but I'm having a hard time getting excited about the Wuhan coronavirus.

Just give it some time.

The tracker I use:  https://bnonews.com/index.php/2020/01/the-latest-coronavirus-cases/

It's not as detailed as other sites, but it has enough at-a-glance info for me and it doesn't take long to load on mobile.

An annual flu chart would look similar. The CDC estimates there were 45,000,000 cases and 61,000 flu-related deaths in the US during the 2017-18 season. This year is looking even worse. Early estimates are putting the number of deaths in the 90,000 range. And remember that's just the US. Worldwide the number will be a lot bigger than that. I did say I could be wrong. I am just having a hard time getting excited about it.
