The only people who need to be tested are health care workers, the elderly, and those with underlying health conditions.  If you are young (under 50) and healthy and are taking up a test kit, crowding

This country is being bright to its knees by fear....not the virus. Recovery from getting the virus is a couple weeks. Recovery of society from this hysteria will be years.

It’s sad that about half the country still believes outlets like msnbc and cnn.  You would think after they lied everyday for 3 years about Russian collusion, people would get the hint of what their t

It's just amazing the response to the Corona Virus compared to the H1N1 in 2009.   I am not saying the Corona Virus isn't something that shouldn't be taken seriously.  Just the response to both given the number of people affected is shocking.  To date, 938 people in the United States have been diagnosed with the Corona Virus with 29 deaths.  Back in 2009, the number of people in the United States infected with the H1N1 virus was 100 Million with 75,000 deaths and 936,000 hospitalizations

Does any one remember anyone saying in 2009 to cancel events, play sporting events with empty stadiums, and people reacting like they are today?  Just seems odd that the hysteria in 2009 was not even close to what it was in 2009 with numbers that blow this viruses numbers out of the water!

You missed the big "if" in that article, which was if the bird flu virus mutates and becomes readily transmissible between people.

Are there ifs in the numbers above?

Or is it a big certainty???

No fans at Minnesota-Penn State semifinal

 

Did they move it to Mariucci?  :)   But seriously, that definitely plays into UM's hands some since they're used to playing in an empty arena, and if nothing else eliminates some of the home ice advantage of having a good crowd that would be at Pegula.

It'll be like a home game then.  You were waiting for someone to say that weren't you?

could mutate into a form transmittable between people.

It later did mutate into a form transmittable between people.

Quote

"A flu outbreak is imminent but no one knows if it will be next week or in three years' time," a WHO spokeswoman said. "It is really difficult to know how many people will be infected but we know we have to get prepared."

She said the "best case scenario" would be 7.4 million deaths globally.

They later learned it wasn't as easily transmittable between people are they originally thought.

Dr. Brian Monahan, attending physician of the US Congress, told staffers to expect 70-160 million infections among the US population.  1 in 3.

He also said "80 percent of infected people will recover."   Didn't say what about the remaining 20%.

My guess is he knows the age ranges of U.S. citizens and 80% fall in the range that can fight it off.

1 in 3 Americans will get the Coronavirus. 

And some are saying that's a low number.

Could be 60%.

Some crazy stuff!
