    The stupid media is creating a national panic which is far worse than the darn cornavirus. Beyond stupidity. According to the National Safety Council, we lost 38,800 people in 2019 to auto related accidents. So do we stop driving? According to the CDC, from 01 Oct 19 to 01 Feb 20, approximately 12K people have died due to the flu. Expect up to 30K by the end of the flu season. And now, a crazy amount of people are just jumping over the cliff in sheer hysteria. The media driven panic is doing more damage to our economy and daily lives than the darn virus.
    The mortality rate of the flu for the 2018-2019 season was .1 percent. Source - https://www.cdc.gov/flu/about/burden/2018-2019.html
    Math - 35,500,000 illnesses. 34,200 deaths. Mortality rate .0963 and round up.

    One virus expert predicts that between 40 and 70 percent of the world's population will become infected with the virus. Source - https://thehill.com/policy/healthcar...cent-of-worlds

    The population of the US is about 330 million people. Source from 2019 - https://www.census.gov/library/visua.../new-year.html

    The World Heath Organization estimates the mortality rate of Covid-19 to be 3.4 percent. Source - https://thehill.com/policy/healthcar...tially-thought

    40 Percent Infection Estimate:
    330,000,000 x 40 percent = 132,000,000
    132,000,000 infected x 3.4 percent mortality rate = 4,488,000 dead in the US alone

    70 Percent Infection Estimate:
    330,000,000 x 70 percent = 231,000,000
    231,000,000 infected x 3.4 percent mortality rate = 7,854,000 dead in the US alone

    Please stop comparing this to the seasonal flu. Please inform yourself and prepare responsibly.

    Hoarding toilet paper and paper towels is not the best way to prepare. The electricity will continue to run. Water will continue to flow. You will still be able to buy food, but prices will certainly increase and availability will decrease. Please consider that when making your preparations.

    Thank you.
