People are recovering from this shit in days, and it's not a strain of the flu it's a completely different virus. The main reason it was so bad in Wuhan is because they didn't know what they were dealing with. They thought they had the flu and went about their business when they should have been resting and treating it like a foreign disease that they had no antibodies to fight.
Consider that when influenza hits a population with no immunity it can wipe out a third of the population, young, old, healthy, sick as was the case in North America during colonization.
Influenza makes corona virus look like a walk in the park.
Now that people are aware of the spread, precautions are being taken Nd only those with severely compromised immune systems are at risk.
Because of the rapid recovery times, they have already fast tracked human trials of the first vaccine in Taiwan.
This will still require time but there is also a treatment ready for trials Remdesivir.
In Wuhan, the epicentre, there are now more people who have recovered from the virus than who have it, and of course, yes, all precautions should still be taken until the necessary remedies are in place but this isn't the bug scary pandemic every one is worried about.
Much of what is going on is political, a rule of politics is to never let a good crisis go to waste, so just keep that in mind as well, it is election season after all.
However, it is also not a nothing burger since it is a completely new enemy for your immune system and there is unpredictability in that. Wash hands, avoid touching face, purell often etc.
