What do you know about the CoronaVirus?

“Oh boy, here we go. What do I know? I know the infection rate is mostly in China, so we should be alert, but not panic. The death tolls are not as bad as people and the media portray it to be. The most deaths have come from past cases of pre-existing medical illnesses cancer, stuff like that. I think over two thousand people have been discharged from the hospitals already in China, but I don’t know if that’s true and if it is, it could be a worldwide pandemic, but it’s not an epidemic yet, so I would not be over-the-top concerned.”

“Nothing, pretty much. I know it affects men worse than it affects women in China because of their longer smoking habits. They get the worst part of it, like the pneumonia side of it because of their length of smoking versus the women.”

“Nothing really. I thought it was based off of mosquitoes, but I guess it’s based off of smoking.”
