No reason to be panicing right now as it's just highly infectious. but if you've been following "Covid-19" (Coronavirus/SARS 2 Cov-19) you'd know: • Since the initial spread, there's now 181 different DNA Sequences. • Covid-19 is mutating quite rapidly, meaning a anti-body may be ready for us in 1-2 years time. • The average (mean) for the death rate was recently changed to 3.4% (Seasonal flu has a death rate of 0.1%). • Drs have stated that the statistics so far for spread rate are "For every 1 person confirmed, there's another 4-6 Unconfirmed". WHO has a great guid on how to wash your hands. stay Covid free NewsVoice :)

If it wasn't for the fact that some people have asked if they should gargle and rinse their mouths with bleach..... I would say Elon was being too insensitive.

Muh 3% death rate. Look at the millions dying in the streets. Believe WHO and CDC more. /s. I called this shit out weeks ago. Just remember when another virus crops up in 3-4 years. Zika, Ebola, Swine Flu, Bird Flu, SARS.

the virus is a nasty one but not the big one. On the other hand it is purposely being exaggerated (no masks etc) to justify future clamping down on people. They want people to die but not so much that there's nothing left. Now it's true they are psychotic by definition by playing god and that's very unpredictable. It's my opinion though they don't want everyone to die and there's no "slaves" left to ruin things (robotisation still a ways away (10-20 years the next big outbreak or crisis) so I think this is more a 9/11 . If they really didn't have control over it they wouldn't be acting this way. Yes, they're incompetent but it's just too flagrant.

Panic is dumb but this virus IS changing the landscape of society right before our eyes. This virus will be used as a tool by the government's of the world to enact draconian policies. A less deadly "V for Vendetta"

Glad I sold stocks when I did, who wants to buy an electric car when oil is THIS low? Rather covert a Chad war rig to run on cooking oil at this point than try my luck with a Virgin CyberTruck!!!

Dont panic but dont be naiive. Regardless of if the virus kills, it will disrupt supply lines. The guy who delivers to your local supermarket, is staying home if he gets Coronavirus. So just get in a couple weeks supplies incase he does, or if you do. You don't want to go shopping when you're feeling like shit either. So $10 worth of canned beans, a couple 5 gallon water bottles and some jerky will do you. You don't need to build a nuclear bunker to last 500 years. But be sensible and stock up till it blows over.

Only the uninsured are at risk, which makes others more at risk.
