If 0 is non-concerned, and 10 is zombie apocalypse. I’m concerned at 7.

Most people fail to see many things:

The rest of the world is not China.
They built a hospital in ten [1]days.
They can quarantine [2]the fuck out of everything[3].
They will enforce whatever [4]rule they concoct.
Whatever numbers apply in China won’t apply elsewhere.
Italy is already seeing very high mortality rates[5] in comparison.
Iran follows Italy with their mortality [6]rates.
The infection rates in countries such as Brazil, India and Indonesia are going to be sky high.
Imagine a slum or a favela getting the virus.
Saturation of health care services.
Even if the death rate stays at 2%.
Lots of black swan changes to the economy.
More money for pension funds as the elderly die.
Less tourism[7].
Less transport. Coincidentally, less pollution[8].
The virus will stay.
Vaccine won’t be found [9]soon enough.
There’s confirmed reinfection[10].
It can become a major cause of death for the elderly.

If anything, this COVID-19 virus will be a test to redefine our infrastructure as a global civilization for when a worse epidemic appears.

Most governments are doing things wrong.

In Argentina, the Health Minister said there’s nothing[11] to worry about. Meanwhile, an undiagnosed patient dies[12].

In India, the authorities propose Homeopathy[13] as a solution.

In Mexico, the president argues that an “amulet”[14] will be protection enough.

In the Netherlands, the prime minister has advocated a “herd [15]immunity” approach.

In North Korea, the Supreme Leader has purged [16]the Health Chiefs for reporting. Meanwhile, 180 soldiers die.
