    I'll be very surprised if they don't cancel E3 2020

    I don't think they will cancel it, but they can limit the visitor count, so it's not packed and media gets all the coverage.

    Will have to see how things are going with covid-19 by June. Usually heat keeps virus transmission rates very low since they die off outside the body much faster when its hot. One of the main reasons the Flu season is in colder months.

    All this crap...flu is more deadly.
    H1N1 was more deadly.
    Damn, each month ppl die from various reasons, like women die in labor, if I remember correctly is like 20k+ worldwide, each month.

    Sure. If u have diabetics, health, veins, lung problems and u r smoker, then u have big chance to die from it. 60y.o.+ chances growing up.
    Otherwise u have more chance to win euromillions than die from this virus.

    39 people died directly for flue, but other ~8000 died due complication of flue.

    Source: ISS, which is the official source of the Italian healtcare for this kinda data: https://www.epicentro.iss.it/influenza/sorveglianza-mortalita-influenza

    Sorry, didn't any manually translated version of the article. https://translate.google.com/translate?sl=it&tl=en&u=https://www.epicentro.iss.it/influenza/sorveglianza-mortalita-influenza

    Almost (all?) deaths of COVID-19 in Italy were very old people or people with serius healt issues.

    too bad they could not have it outside then it would be close to nil to get it
    that is unless some dick wad got it and sneezes all over you...but most people there are pretty youngish anyways
    they never closed it for the more common flu'is'es

    Now would be a good time to read up on natural remedies and boost your immune system.

    The World Helath Organisation says the Covid death rate is 3%, that is 15-20 times that of regular flu. New viruses that jump from animals are very dangerous compared to flu as no one is immune and there is no vaccine. Complacency like yours is worse than over reaction. Governments are scrambling to contain it because if it went world wide millions would be dead. Try some research.

    stop being fake news
    The death rate soars to 14.8% in those 80 and older; among those ages 70 to 79, the COVID-19 death rate in China seems to be about 8%; it’s 3.6% for those ages 60 to 69; 1.3% for 50 to 59; 0.4% for the age group 40 to 49; and just 0.2% for people ages 10 to 39. No deaths in children under 9 have been reported.
    not down playing it but not fear mongering it either

    remember sars? that was gone fast but none the less
    some comparative data from w.h.o

    I think mods need to remove these misleading covid-19 posts.

    Everyone just throwing what they like to belief.
