I agree. The media hyped this way too late and now they are on a feeding frenzy reporting every sneeze. What makes me crazy is that some of the spread is comming from ABC news reporters who were sent to Seattle 4 weeks ago. How dumb can you be. Send a reporter from another major city to an outbreak area to interview people and take no precautions. Now they are responsible for a possible major spread.

I am hoping that they are over hyping it and it wont be as horrible as it looks like it could be.
Believe me I am very concerned.
I have not left my 10 acres since March 8th.
I read that 35,000 people die every year in the USA from the flu.
That is 1 per 10,000 people.
Italy has had 3,000 deaths out of 60,000,000 people and that is 1 out of 20,000.
If 3,000 more die it will be 1 in 10,000.
I am hoping and praying that it will not be that much worse then the average.
I am seriously praying that this warm weather curbs the rise.
Like I said in the Shark story, I am hoping it it the media hype gone wild, but I am not going to count on it. My family is self isolating for the next 2 weeks.
