    Interesting note about the Spanish Flu, first of all, it did not start in Spain and it is believed that the only reason it subsided was because it killed everyone that it could have. Due to your genetics, either you were going to die from it or it was not going to make you sick. There was no middle ground.

    they do this for a reason, they want to scare you in the event it does evolves into the deadliest virus outbreak since the Spanish Flu of 1918-1920. every outbreak in the last 20 years has been feared as the next “Spanish Flu” cause it could cause a million to billion deaths, and if this one is a million/billion death virus, i’ll dubbed it the “The Thanos Virus” due to the fact i’ll name it after Thanos from the MCU franchise cause this could wipe half of the planet’s human population if it’s a Million/billion death virus, just like how Thanos wiped out one half of the galaxy in Avengers: Infinity War with a snap of his infinity gauntlet with all of the infinity stones.

    Damn it to hell. People need to stop buying into the hype about these illnesses. I remember when Ebola hit back in the 90s and they had me worried people around me were going to start bleeding out of their eyes. That never happened. Then they got me again with Bird Flu and SARS. Nothing ever came of that either. Then they REALLY got me believing that I was going to get Swine Flu because I was in the age group it was killing. Almost got vaccinated against that one. I’m done buying into the hype of ANY supposed pandemic. People are going to get sick, people are going to die. The chances it’s going to be you or anyone you know or come in contact with are slim and none. The only difference is that instead of the 1000 people around the world that were going to die anyway from the flu this year are going to die from Coronavirus instead. Wash your hands, take your vitamins, and don’t let people cough on you. You’ll be fine.
