Had a quick look, that's certainly not a site I would trust for reliable info. :o

I too wouldn't take this as gospel either.

The World Health Organisation and other non-government organisations may be a better bet when talking about sources, etc. 

Haven't we had the same scenarios with the bird flu ?

Then we also have SARS adding to the historic list:

The county I live in just issued a stay at home order for 30 days, but I have a feeling it will be longer. On a positive note, I did score some toilet paper which has been scarce along with everything else. Our supply chain has been in a shambles with all the hoarding going on.

Our biggest problem is finding eggs. I don't understand the mentality of the hoarders.
Most have bought so much that much of it will eventually spoil. Just makes no sense.

If I'm not supposed to post on this topic please delete this post.

I have 3 family members who have this virus and a daughter who has been exposed to it.

 Starting today we're not supposed to leave our homes for 2 weeks.  We can go to a store to buy groceries and see our doctor.

As CNN's Ryan Struyk has noted, that comparison was rejected by Fauci last Friday. "That's totally way out," Fauci said. "I don't think with any moral conscience you could say why don't we just let it rip and happen and let X percent of the people die."
