COVIDー19 

Just because coronavirus won’t be the next Spanish Flu doesn’t mean it can’t cause a ton of deaths due to preventable failures in global public health infrastructure. It’s understandable to be worried about the significant number of people with immunocompromisation or comorbidity. There’s a difference between blatant fear-mongering and listening to actual epidemiologists, most of whom are genuinely concerned that could, or will, become a pandemic.

COVIDー19 

It’s annoying to see the same people who dunk on climate change deniers for ignoring climate scientists totally disregarding infectious disease experts and acting like it’s all smoke and mirrors. I doubt it’ll kill 500,000,000 people — and maybe it WILL fizzle out — but there’s just not enough information out there yet to being making proclamations as laypeople. We don’t even know the r0 or CFR for certain. Listen to experts; it doesn’t hurt to be a *little* wary.
