    Yeah, its seems every election we have a new Killer Virus. I have a friend her son died from Sars(like five years ago)he was 18. But I do think it is a bunch of fear mongering people.

    Not sure why this nonsense keeps getting posted around the internet. There is not one statement from any reputable source stating this.

    It is factually incorrect to state the flu is more deadly. This is fact.

    Say what you want about peoples overreaction or etc. Doesn't matter. But when it comes to scientific information, stop spreading around factually incorrect information.

    Mods, can you please remove all of this Coronavirus nonsense posts that keep popping up? Everyone is a bloody Medical expert these days by the looks of it. Can we keep Guru3d civil and Tech related? This isn't a medical forum after all.

    Thanks!

    The flu is more deadly than CoV19,
    CoV19's only victims are the elderly and the severely malnourished.

    So.
    Covid spreads faster, has more transmission rate than flu, and, as our citizens get older and have more civilization diseases like asthma, allergies, obesity etc leading to cardiovascular problems yes, it is a big problem.
    But...in my country, so good prepared for it(diagnosis is 88h+ for coronavirus test results) and indolence at power, goverment, well, I'm happy. Maybe all old pr@@ finally find themselves in better place and youth will steer country straight instead of next damn Venezuela.

    Yeah, then how come last flu season 38 people died over the course of 4 months, and yesterday 41 died from Corona on a single day? Not to mention the count is up to 150 within just 2 weeks.

    The ISS is a scientifical and official source of information while media and journalists are not.

    But if you still tust more the avarage click-bait title, at the end of the ISS article there are linked a couple of true scientifics papers:
    https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2738436/
    https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/31401203

    Those 38-39 are very small and partial value since they are not available in "real-time" while most (hopefully) cases of deadth caused by COVID-19 are in real time. https://translate.google.com/translate?sl=it&tl=en&u=https://www.epicentro.iss.it/influenza/sorveglianza-mortalita-influenza

    People miss the fact that person can carry Covid19 for a few weeks without noticing it. Flu will screw you with fever in a few days.

    One thing is undetectable, another is presented right away. That why people who have the virus dont know it.

    So much crap coming from "experts" months yet cant understand the difference.

    Game industry being the game industry so arrogant it thinks it can do what it wants and get away with it, I guess that makes no difference from what it's been up to for the last decade or so. Then again the last few E3s by all accounts have been a bit of a sh*t show with this years one apparently pushing some real, influencer, engagement BS.

    This years one will have plenty of recurring spending opportunities though.

    Spend £5 to earn EEECS bucks (that's a special e3 currency) £5 bucks earns you 1000 EEECS. Dotted through out the event are the wheels of fortune with a range of limited edition fantastic prizes. Only 500EEEC per spin. Win yourself some hand sanitizer, or what about a lovely face mask, or premium edition members (only £50 for the event pass) can also enter the premium wheel of fortune with a potential 1 in 2.34 million chance to win a full body bio suit. For those gamers who want to show off your unique 'playa skills' you can personilze your hand sanitizer, face mask and bio suits with one of 10 'unique' skins designed by popular Youtube 'influencers' £10 each or get all ten plus a limited edition white version for a single one of payment of £100 (please note all items are purely cosmetic and offer no advantage to individual players abilities to resist or repel covid 19)

    Please note you will not own the properties. The sole ownership of skins, bio suits, face masks and hand sanitizers remain the property of E3 (f*ck you) industries. We reserve the right to withdraw support at any time. We do not guarantee that skins, bio suits, face masks and hand sanitizers will work and any instances of corona virus (covid 19) infection resulting from their use are not the fault or concerns of E3 (frack you) industries.... we shall however keep all your cash you poor mooks.

    Prime Minister Rutte here from the Netherlands says no actions are needed yet, because the Dutch Economy can take a beating.

    What about the goddamn lives of people..?!?!?!

    So far only 1 guy of 89 has died and It is not the same situation as in Italy.
    It remains to be seen what the coming week will be like. There seem to a lot infected, and a lot recovered as well.

    The older are more vulnerable ,nothing you can do about that.

    no reason to call the cancel early

    japan olympic 2020 still trying to go as planned, based all interview with the organizer so far

    for covid-19 ... well i believe everyone know, human itself cause more issue than the virus
    even little panic happening in many countries(japan/australia/ US too?), people over-buying mask, tissue/toilet-paper, etc. is making new problem.

    WHO/goverment/media try to make it looks "better" so people dont panic ... but then all over places we hear people want to hear the truth.

    for people saying, this not much deadlier to flu... then will u dare to get infected by the virus ?
    No one with normal-sense feel fine even say the dead rate below 1%

    In all of this current bad situation in this world... there still positive things happening ...

    The things is, we need to act proactive, and it seems we refuse to do that.

    Then again, it's already too late for that now anyways.

    This will be a continuing issue throughout the year. Holdings events that pack in tons of people into a tight space is the perfect condition for spreading a virus, especially for something as contagious as this Coronavirus. Even with proper screening, the risks are too great.

    As for the virus, from what I've read, the mortality rate is somewhere around 1% - 2%, although it could be lower. Initial reports in China/Wuhan were high but they were much lower in Korea, where there are more stringent screening and testing procedures (it's likely that many cases in China went unreported or are misdiagnosed). My guess is that it's more dangerous than most influenza viruses but nothing to lose sleep over.

    Although I have no fears about contracting the virus, but it's important to limit its spread for the sake of those who are more vulnerable to it - the elderly and those in poor health. We all have a responsibility to look out for each other.

    Factually incorrect.

    Nothing you have posted states as you imply.

    Again, not a single reputable source is claiming the common flu is more deadly then this current coronavirus.
