Cruise lines banned Chinese, Hong Kong, and Macau passport holders 2 days ago, and anyone who has traveled through mainland China in the last 2 weeks.

Shouldn’t airlines follow suit?

2% fatality rate.

That's nothing compared to the flu.

The Chinese #s show about 2.5%, which sounds about online with the flu IF what the Chinese are acknowledging (they've probably only acknowledged a fraction of both cases and deaths). CDC says flu 2.0%.

If they all stayed in China I wouldn't give a rat's arse. But have you been to Europe, of even some of our major cities and national parks lately? The Chinese are everywhere. There are 1.4 billion of them, and a couple hundred million with $$ to travel..

Right. It's already too late. That is why we need to re-elect Trump! He will isolate us and protect us from the rest of the world. :nod: :thumb: :notworthy:

That information is from 2017. :thumbdown:
The flu has already killed almost 10k people this season, infecting almost 20M people. If the coronavirus wants to get on the same playing field as the flu, it's gotta pump those numbers up.
In the U.S. alone, the flu has already caused an estimated 19 million illnesses, 180,000 hospitalizations and 10,000 deaths this season, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

You're going to want this page for the CDCs flu data: https://www.cdc.gov/flu/weekly/#S2
Currently, pneumonia and influeza are responsible for about 7.1% of deaths.

Well, cornona virus is probably a lot closer to the 10k flu death #s than the Chinese are acknowledging.
BTW, in the US those flu 10k death, 19 million affected would be a mortality rate of about 1 in 2,000 (1/20th of 1%). To be 2% should be close to 400k deaths.
No reason to panic unless becomes widespread in the US, but the Coronavirus seems a lot worse than the regular flu.

Don't trust the Chinks! They are probably sending the virus here on purpose! That being said....no way to stop this now. Just don't hang around anyone that looks sick. :thumb:

Of course the % is lower, millions and millions get the flu compared to thousands that so far have coronavirus. That right there tells you that the flu, statistically is the bigger deal. You’re missing the point.

The fight against the novel coronavirus took a turn for the worse on Wednesday night, as Chinese health officials in the Hubei province reported 242 new deaths and 14,840 new cases of the flu-like virus. That brings the worldwide death toll to at least 1,357 and the number of confirmed cases to more than 60,000.

Note that those are numbers from the commies so likely a lot more than that.

Yeah, China 15k new cases/240 + deaths in just 1 day- and like you said, probably a lot higher. wouldn’t be surprised if in China there’s actually hundreds of thousands of cases, and more than 10k deaths.. This thing just blew up on the Chinese.

Just 15th case confirmed in the US, so no big deal here yet..
