    Stop yelling at people.:rolleyes:

    Up until this post, all anyone's been doing in this thread so far is posting headlines, links, and statistics.

    If those bother you, go read something else.

    Yes, this! There is no need to panick. Unless you're old or have a compromised immune system its very unlikely to kill you. Instead of fear mongering we should stay informed and take a moment to realize that centuries of disease management has eventually lead to us being able to significantly reduce the spread of this disease. And as long as it's been around now, nothing has really shown any significant changes.
    Ultimately, if you're doing what you should already be doing in the first place, then by all means go about like it's any other day. Because it is.

    Haven't seen any of that going on in this thread or in these forums in regards to this topic so far.

    I don't think you have either.

    Going on about stores here closing, taking extra precautions that aren't necessary, and over stating the risk of the virus is fear mongering.
    How deadly is the coronavirus?
    (spoiler, unless you're over 80 not very, about 1 - 2%)

    Where might those posts be?

    (and don't try and point to the post I just deleted because I posted that after your claim of fear mongering).



    Like what for instance?


    Who's doing that and where?

    Seriously, what are you going on about?


    Edit: ah, OK. forgot about this (from Prepping for the Coronavirus)
    I wouldn't call that fear mongering, I'd call that giving the people who want it a heads up.

    It happened in china, after all.

    Except that's not going to happen. And, even if it does, those are things you should already be doing.

    Or posting daily the number of people infected, died, and recovered. That's an obsession, and focusing on it to ask unhealthy extent. Those numbers are basically useless to anyone already doing what they should. They won't help you, they won't spare you, they do nothing except give you a tally.

    I see, so you're basically following me around the forums and poking me with a stick for my own good.

    I'm touched. :D

    Believe it or not, I'm not doing this for myself. :)

    I'm putting the information out there for whoever wants it. Obviously, you don't. That's OK, nobodies forcing it on you.

    It seems to be slowing down in China yet more cases outside of China. How so?

    Since Covid-19 originated in China, the Chinese have had more time to take measures to try and contain the outbreak then other countries that were infected later.

    That's actually kind of encouraging: it shows that we have some control over the spread. Potentially anyway.
