This one has killed less than 100 people out of the 3000~ that have caught it, that's a death ratio of around 3%, no larger than a regular cold.
Remember ebola? ah1n1? yeah me neither.
Yeah, last time i remember people freaking out about a Coronavirus was when their child got a cold.
*EDIT: And yep, you mentioned the cold too.
search "Coronavirus" on Wikipedia (add nothing else) and yep......
COVID-19, is a member of the family of viruses that cause the COMMON COLD.
So yeah, you should worry about it, but not as much as you guys are freaking out about it now.
