Sorry OP. My last post in this thread.
The only difference between the flu and corona virus is the availability of vaccine.
A lot of people getting sick is not only harmful for the economy but also puts a lot of strain on the healthcare system.
Basically damage control is getting really hard.
Also people fear the unknown. Common flu happens each year so people got used to it.
Corona virus is a new danger.
My grandmother did suffer a lot from common flu.
She did not make it through lightly.
That's why she takes vaccines in order to mitigate the risk.
Myself I manage much better with common flu.
A healthy adult will have no problems beating the virus.
As long as immune system works properly there's no problem.
Chinese doctors who got infected with the virus are already getting better.
