So, not to be insensitive or anything but here is what i have noticed. I feel the media has created much panic over the corona virus. Surely it is a concern, lives are valuable.

Moreover, the virus has only proved to be fatal mostly for those aged 70+. Reason being with age, the immune system deteriorates.
