    Standard flu variants, resulting in between 3,000 and 60,000 deaths in the US annually, has a mortality rate of less than one percent. Each season has vaccines planned and tested and available that help protect the most vulnerable people ( old or very young). Covid-19 is the name of the latest disease epidemic caused by the Coronavirus variant 2019-nCoV or SARS-Cov-2 that initially was identified in Wuhan City f Hubei Province of China and has spread to every continent and has as yet no available vaccine.

    The mortality rate is climbing, around 3% now to those known to have the disease and have died, or nearer 15% if the number of cleared recovered COVID-19 carriers and those who have died with COVID-19 already. As the outbreak moves on and the rate of infection hopefully starts to reduce by June 2020, the true nature of the disease and its level of danger would be more fairly evaluated.

    The apocalypse or the end of humanity is not the level of concern or panic appropriate, neither is the misunderstanding of any connection with Corona beer and other Corona-branded beverages. Enhanced diligence at hygiene, avoiding travel to or from the main centers of infection, the reduction in the number of large public gatherings whilst the disease is still being transmitted and affected person numbers are rising are important, as is staying home from school or work if you have any symptoms that persist for at least 14 days and may test and verify that it is a COVID-19 or other flu.
