    It’ll probably stay around, like other coronaviruses, or go by way of SARS. Because China censored and sanctioned whistleblowers who tried to out the virus in its early stages, the virus is not so much an epidemic, but a pandemic, and the Chinese government needs to be held accountable for its actions/inactions.

    Folks either treat the virus too seriously, or too lightly. 2019-nCoV is dangerous. It does not only kill the elderly and the unhealthy, it can potentially kill anyone, no matter how healthy we are. It depends on mitigating factors, like the availability of healthcare to treat secondary infections arising from the virus, like pneumonia. Treating secondary infections is all we can do at this time.

    There’s a high survival rate for mild cases and where healthcare is readily available. I’m not too concerned about the virus’ mortality rate. I’m concerned about our nation’s ability to provide healthcare for an entire population stricken with the virus. An overburdened healthcare system will increase mortality rates ten-fold.
