136 people died in Spain last night from this “Flu”. I’m seeing a lot of people seek out those with the least education and trust in what they say as opposed to listening to those educated in the field. Careful out there.

Neither of those are true.
Please explain! memtb
We know the death rate, and the media I watch has doctors and health professionals. I don't know what media you listen to or watch.

High mortality virus tend to mutate into less deadly strains. Influenzas Spanish Flu 1918 -- Hong Kong 1957, etc. Even catastrophic pandemics like pneumonic plague mutate themselves into oblivion.

The big question is "when"?

The downturn in China is not a result solely of stricter quarantine. This is mimicking the demise of The Spanish Flu.

You are a scientist that has studied such things?

I try to listen to Doctors and Health Care Providers......perhaps “not” the same ones you listen to. Mine are calling it a pandemic but, and suggest exercising logic, following known health practices and “not” to panic. Panic and worldwide hysteria could, in a worst case scenario, lead to very poor decisions. Enough poor decisions can lead to more deaths than Covid-19! JMO.

We will not be out in public, exposing ourselves to increased risk or potentially helping spread the virus! This is the beauty of free will....we make our own decisions and reap the consequences....good or bad! memtb

Keeping all our trip reservations and will probably add more. Mostly dry camping out in the sticks. Will likely avoid restaurants or get to-go orders only.

RVing shows its great versatility avoiding planes, motels, and restaurants as needed.
