Just bizarre stuff.

NBA is currently suspending the season while Rudy Gobert is preliminarily diagnosed with Corona.

NCAA Basketball Tournament is on the brink of being cancelled in full.

Tom Hanks announcing he is infected while in Australia.

h1n1 (Swine Flu) seemed to be the more deadly disease 11 years ago and never made this much noise or interference (from what I remember).

A lot of this is probably just a bunch of noise. But it's just amazing how the world might and already has changed from this

The mortality rate of the 2009 swine flu was much much lower. The coronavirus mortality rate is not extremely high either but the real danger is if it spreads out of control, the hospitals would be overwhelmed and wouldn't be able to handle everyone, which would raise the mortality rate of the virus, and of other stuff too, since they would not be able to handle people with other problems.
