This virus is scary.
Coronavirus is serious but as with other diseases and even pandemics, the chance of contracting them are still very small.
When an airplane crashes, it is so dramatic, ugly that many fear air travel for a while after a big accident yet flying is statistically the safest form of travel.
The Spanish flu pandemic in 1918, the deadliest in history, infected a third of the world’s population, killing as many as 50 million people and 675,000 Americans.
That’s 3% of the world’s population or another way to look at it is 97% survived.
Serious world health issues should be taken seriously.
The facts provide some reassurance in the Twitter world.
