Coronavirus - A Little Perspective Please
"Nothing Spreads Like Fear" (IMDB: Movie: Contagion 2011)
A free version of the movie "Contagion" was uploaded to YouTube on Jan. 22, and most of the commenters admit they came there because of the media hype about the coronavirus.
Unfortunately, the movie has it own truth problems. Here might be a saner critique of its message:
PBS: ‘Contagion’ Reality Check: CDC Experts Explore Some of the Film’s Scenarios
But one has to realize that a few cases out of China's population of roughly 1.5 billion does not an epidemic make! Not to mention that the Chinese know their stuff when it comes to preventing widespread contagion.
People who are freaking out because over 50 people have died in China need to take a look at that country's population stats! Worldometers.info
Now take a look at the ordinary, every day Canadian death stats from all sorts of causes. Being a new-born baby is hazardous to say the least, and growing older is even more so. But very few people freak out about that!

Looking to governments to protect us is foolhardy at best:

It's our personal job to protect ourselves, and here is some sane advice on how to do it:
VeryWellHealth: How to Reduce Your Risk of Infectious Diseases
And that's exactly why the above 10 practical tips should be incorporated into one's habitual thinking and habits. (Addendum: There are a couple of things on that list that I personally would not do, vaccination being one of them. But you decide for yourself.)

In this article, pay attention to the word "presumptive". This means that the tests show possibles, maybe even probables, but not necessarily actuals.
Given the fact that the lady in question has been in "self-isolation", the risk to Ontarians remains low.
Well, at least you can see how close you have to be to an infected person to catch the disease.
Finally, a reasonably sane assessment from an actual news outlet:
NatNewsWatch: Officials Reaching Out to Those in Contact With Canada's First Coronavirus Patient.
Nevertheless, some of the comments under this YouTube video: Cross country checkup: How does coronavirus spread? reveal that the news media have had their desired effect. People are focussed negatively on China and are worried that not enough precautions have been taken.
Sad, very sad.
Here's a New York Times scathing critique of China that may well reveal the very purpose of the disease hype, though it unwittingly also reveals how far China is willing to go to protect its population, and in so doing, the people of other countries.
As if the West has not sought to control the flow of information?

The new world order
Just the tip of the control iceberg, and that is something to actually be concerned about.
