I think the level of fear that this has generated is not proportional to the actual threat. It just seems everyone is grossly overreacting. I shudder to think of the mass hysteria that would occur if a virus that was actually a real global, high-lethality viral threat were to come along.
Cue the inevitable "Prez wants old people to die!" comments.
I haven't seen fear, I've seen precautions. Postponing conferences that tens of thousands go to? We don't have enough information, so it's smart. Wouldn't you want to, were you an organizer, if you thought it was possible even 1 person would die as a direct result?
