Covid-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus, has similar symptoms to the flu. They also spread in similar ways. So it's natural to want to compare the two. But Covid-19 is very different, in ways that make it much more dangerous. And understanding how is key to understanding why we have to take it so seriously.

@EternalResonance Quarantine those who are at risk so they do not get exposed to covid. We have it reversed. We are "quarantine every low riskers and let all high risk go get exposed" we have it so wrong. It should be "Give high risk people info to decide whether to get exposed or not. Low risk should not be interfered with."

Staying indoors with the air conditioner running will INCREASE your chances of getting the virus. A doctor's advice is to get outside, increase your sun exposer to increase your D3 levels which boost your immune system. The virus doesn't replicate in temps over 86 degrees, it dies instead. It also doesn't live in high humidity. Listen to doctors, not media.

Surely, if we social distance, someday, some time we are going to have come back out, so what happens then? What happened to the people that already had it, like measles are they now immune or what does WHO and CDC and Fauci want us to believe. I could hug someone with measles and cannot get it, already had it. Is this the same with COVID? When will it end, surely not only because of a vaccine? I am sure people will eventually build up antibodies.

First off, that graph at <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="124">2:04</a> shows how dangerous covid-19 is not. Comparing the world wide death tolls to US death tolls and its not even half way from the flu in 2017? Sure we aren't "out of the woods" but the overall fatality is extremely low in perspective. Of course we already know its much lass fatal then the regular flu and more spreadable. Second, the reason hospitalizations are so high is because we have asked people to go to the hospital if they have flu like symptoms and general flu like symptoms are diagnosed as covid. Plenty of people get professionally diagnosed with covid even if they don't have it. Third, and this misuse of information is getting annoying but the chart at <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="276">4:36</a> showing the 1-3% covid cases worldwide compared to the .1% flu cases in the US. US would have much lower flu fatalities due to the use and access to all kinds of first world medicine. Essentially we are just joining the rest of the world in this specific disease but that doesn't make it more deadly. You spent this entire time comparing Covid to the flu just to end with "Comparing it [covid] to the flu .... is not helpful".

They have yet to isolate the virus. They can only test for the RNA genetic material that many of us already have. There is NO virus identified. Claiming that it is Corona virus, especially one "that we have never seen before" is without foundation. Dr. Fauci's claim of 10x more infectious and deadly is unsupportable because there are no reliable data on just how many have been exposed to whatever this is. It is all speculation, like Neil Ferguson's ridiculous computer models. People who have compromised immune systems or serious pre-existing conditions should exercise caution regarding what they allow themselves to be exposed to. Everyone should strengthen their immune system. The only effective defense against ANY virus or infectious bacteria is a strong immune system. Otherwise healthy people should be allowed to live their lives normally.

Our immune system will kinda help. But the difference between coronavirus and the flu is that most people have gotten the flu before. There immune system is used to it, unlike coronavirus where it is new and everybody that gets it will not have the same protection as the flu.

well, technically we don't even know what the "real" mortality rate is due to so many inconsistencies in global disease surveillance. Additionally, there exists very little research and metrics on the asymptomatic/presymptomatic population as an aggregate. Social distancing, contact tracing, and a robust country-wide testing strategy is our only real chance of mitigating the damage of SARS-CoV-2. - A person whose parent is immunosuppressed and a statistical analysis / infectious disease student! :)

The corona virus is in the flu, MERS SARS the difference is the type of corona virus.. COVID 19 is pretty bad. The bright side is no one has died from the flu for the first time in history, it's being added to the COVID19 count, both are a complete different corona virus type. Two doctors I know, which one i served with, has actually told me how there's a political gain in the medical field.. The doctor im talking about isn't into politics at all.. I know his work ethnics and his since of morality. I trust what he is saying fully. Take note he does say that the COVID 19 type is dangerous however he also says that the death count on COVID 19 isn't just from that alone.
