Definitely not as big of a deal as the media’s making it out to be, but if it keeps getting handled badly like it is at the moment then it could definitely end up becoming that bad.
said this earlier in the month...

annddddd it was definitely handled terribly. Situation got worse and it’s gonna be a few months before things start to calm down. Economic effects are gonna last even longer, probably.
I'm scared (not really) and freaking out.

Over 300 people were infected by it here in Ukraine. Those who are weak (some old people) died, but many are healed... I don't get why the world has to collapse because of this instead of, Idk, cancer? It's so much more dangerous compared to covid it's ridiculous.

At the very least, the recovery-death ratio for the United States appears to be higher than the death rate at the moment, so there's one glimmer of hope.

Remember that health care systems (public or private) can only handle so many people at once. If the "curve" can't be "flattened" and more people become seriously ill, then people might end up getting sorted by priority to determine whether they get in. Left untreated, COVID-19 might not necessarily go away on its own.

Cancer doesn’t spread person-to-person. If 10% of the world had cancer (depending on the type, but generally speaking), a TON of people would die, but outside of lots of death and pain life would go on because being around someone who has cancer won’t give you cancer.

COVID-19 spreads, basically invisibly. While it’s less life-altering than cancer for most individuals, it spreads like wildfire, so much so that even though most who have it are asymptomatic we still see it spreading and becoming a larger problem that’s filling up the healthcare systems that don’t have the capacity to handle it. If 10% of the population had COVID-19, and life continued as normal, basically everybody would end up with it (providing that 10% was evenly spread). The disease itself isn’t anywhere close to the worst thing we’ve seen, but because of how contagious it is and how many people carry it without realizing, it has become a pretty huge issue.

(as for the US, doesn’t help that Trump administration is currently outbidding hospitals for medical equipment and hoarding it away from people who don’t support them... so stupid and childish)

I'm not that worried about getting the Corona virus where I'm at*, since there's a overall 2000+ cases of the virus, and only 27 deaths so far. (Source from The Weather Channel app I have on my phone)

So I'm kind of safe for now.

You're looking at it the wrong way. Covid-19 has proven to be dangerous, we have underestimated its power in spreading, and we also underestimate its danger. It's been found out that yes, there are aggressive forms that threaten young and healthy people too. It makes no sense to say "it's only 1 out of 1000 people as of now", we already learned it the hard way when it was "only 1 out of 100,000". This has potential to become another historic pandemic with death numbers that could reach until millions in the end, if it'll be really true that a mass percentage of the population becomes infected.

Also I don't believe China's claims of having overcome the virus.

The media is part of the problem. CBS news using footage from a Italian hospital and trying to say it was a NYC hospital is funny.

Spread the word. A drug is curing all who take it from the Coronavirus. We may have a vaccine!!!!!

The drug is called Hydroxychloroquine. Check it out.

Well everything has to be mass tested before deemed safe to use. I'm sure several drugs or vaccines will be tried and some of them won't be safe in the end to use.

So there's starting to be tangible evidence that China has lied all the way about "no more infected and dead" and the virus is still going strong in China. They lied all the way for the sake of economy and propaganda.

I guess authoritarianism isn't better at dealing with an outbreak after all. The most depressing thing about it is the creeping support for Chinese style authoritarianism continues, and there is a tangible decline in democracies with all of the profiteering, rent seeking, and governments bending over backwards to do the least they can during a pandemic.

I'm not even surprised...
And it's quite sad that most European governments, albeit far from the degree China did it, are utilizing authoritarian methods...
I support staying at home but using thousand-dollar fines against people who just want to buy something is a really bad move.
A handful countries also don't give temporary basic income to workers laid off, such as Hungary or the USA. (but they are more than willing to give money to megacorps... of course, they always are)
Corporations are an even bigger problem, especially in the United States!

We need limitations and bans on going out but there's still so many non-understanding people infringing. They need fines and whatnot. And yeah you're also going to catch better people who are not acting in so much bad faith, that's the natural shortcoming of human race I guess?

Also, if people followed the lockdown rules, they would get less draconian and go away sooner. So if you don't like them, that would actually be a good reason to follow them.

Thats not true. Yes fine I can say we have better immune system (is that right?) and when we get it, that it can go away but facts like those aren't true. Kids "CAN!" die from COVID-19. Its just a low chance. (I'm not talking to Electriking I mean the site)
