If predicted to happen during the winter three years ago.......from INFLUENZA.

Will they have that many from this virus...?? Maybe.
I hope not, but somehow it is probably Orange Man's fault... :roll:

Everybody seems to be forgetting the normal flu/pneumonia deaths every year from the Non-Chinese virus. :roll: It's going to be bad, but we got thru the H1N1, Sars and Mersa cycles. Buck up, dammit. :idea:
I wish for you the courage to be unpopular. Popularity is history's pocket change. Courage to tell the truth is history's true currency.

Agreed. During the current flu season, we've seen roughly ~20,000 deaths. That is the norm year in and year out. The 2017-2018 flu season had ~60,000 deaths in the US. It did not stop the economy dead in its tracks (probably a poor choice of words). The country has ~40,000 deaths per year from car accidents, and about 650,000 deaths per year from heart disease. Not trying to downplay or minimize the deaths that will be associated with coronavirus, but just trying to put it in perspective.

Yeah some of my patients who smoke are freaking out and totally becoming shut-ins and changing their lives and spraying everything that moves with Lysol. Yet about four hundred eighty thousand people in the U.S. who die every year from that, and despite all the claims about second hand smoke deaths, I think the vast majority of deaths from smoking are really the person smoking and not someone who happens to be nearby.
