Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, February 25, 2020

Severe illness caused by viruses such as H5N1 also means that infected people can be identified and isolated, or that they died quickly. They do not walk around feeling just a little under the weather, seeding the virus. The new coronavirus (known technically as SARS-CoV-2) that has been spreading around the world can cause a respiratory illness that can be severe. The disease (known as COVID-19) seems to have a fatality rate of less than 2 percent"exponentially lower than most outbreaks that make global news. The virus has raised alarm not despite that low fatality rate, but because of it.

... a fatality rate of less than 2 percent ...

80% of the people infected have "mild" symptoms, e.g., sniffles and a minor cough, and they are still contagious.

That is the worrisome aspect in my view.
