Based on what not so trustworthy China reports we are at just over a 3% death rate. This is probably low, likely way low as it so early in the infection recognition and data reporting process. We are now at a "reported" number of deaths being 41 with well over 20 million people quarantined, and countries evacuating all personnel. If you ain't nervous, you dumb.

"Grave situation" -- foreshadowing?

Yeh its enough to make you nervous but I wouldn't freak out yet. When it comes to disease China is fertile ground. They are vastly over crowded and tend to have horrible hygiene, food safety and in generally a different concept of medicine. There is a larger portion of eastern medicine practiced there, which is anecdotal medicine not evidence based medicine. (not that there aren't some great nuggets in eastern medicine it's just not proven so who knows.) But hygiene and food safety is the kicker. If you've ever seen an average Chinese food market it will scare you. Meat laying around like apples in the heat and sun. Animals kept alive right next to the meat so feces and fur/feathers get everywhere. Hygiene isn't as big of a deal as it is in western countries. We tend to be clean freaks when compared to the rest of the world. I'm not saying this isn't a bad disease, I just won't panic until I see how it behaves in a western country.

It’ll be gone once something else gets the media’s attention. You have nothing to worry about. I’m being serious.

Pretty sure it's much worse than the CCP is reporting, otherwise why would they be building a new quarantine hospital in such a rush?
