Just want to remind everyone that 12,000-30,000 people died from Oct 2019 to Feb 1 2020...
...from the flu...
...in the US, a first-world country with
excellent healthcare capable doctors and good facilities.
This is in addition to the 210,000+ hospitalizations; 10,000,000+ doctor visits; and 22,000,000+ illnesses.
Coronavirus might be bad, but I just wanted to provide some context :D
@horgen: I suppose you believe that the Chinese government is deliberately providing lower numbers than the actual?
Seeing how they tried to suppress news of it in the first place? Absolutely.
