Why Wuhan Coronavirus Is More Dangerous Than Seasonal Flu

from Ronni Monroe

Seasonal flu has a case fatality rate of 0.095%. 2019 nCoV has a case fatality rate (from what we can ascertain) of 2.135%. Seasonal flu has R0 of about 1.2, 2019 nCoV has an R0 (from what we can ascertain) of around 3 to 4. THAT is why it is such a big problem.

A 2% death rate means 1 out of 50 of your friends could die from this. I have roughly 800 FB friends and this means 16 of them could die and it’s a crap shoot who will perish. So no, coronavirus is not the flu. It’s way worse than the flu so please don’t buy that crap you see about how many people die from flu versus 2019 nCoV because that is an inaccurate statement.

Yes, be concerned the flu but nCoV is far more dangerous.

We have a vaccine for and treatment for flu. We don’t have that yet for nCoV. We are a year away from a vaccine or treatment. If coronavirus gets foothold here, ‘you ain’t seen nothing yet’.
