Here's what I saw from Italy re: Coronavirus.
Confirmed Cases = 15,113
Deaths = 1,016
Recoveries = 1,258
Active = 12,839
I'm sure these numbers are constantly changing, but it's kind of shocking to see the number of deaths so close to the number of recoveries.
It's best to listen to the medical experts on this.
NBA = Shut down. NHL = Shut down. NCAA March Madness = Shutdown. MLB = Shut down. MLS = Shut down. Colleges = Shut down. Public Schools = Shutting down. Spring Sports are being delayed or cancelled (my daughters softball trip to Florida cancelled, with possibility of season being cancelled).
If it doesn't turn out really bad, it won't be because it was blown out of proportion. It will be because tremendous efforts were made to limit the damage!!!
The main goal is to not have a high peak of cases all at once. Think of a graph with a high mountain as opposed to a long slope. A slope would have numbers that medical facilities can handle much better than overwhelming facilities all at once. This is why we are seeing all these shutdowns and closures. It is not to stop it it is to slow the spread.
