Actually this is the main reason why these types of viruses don't spread. They kill their hosts way too efficiently and quickly for them to become a pandemic threat. When I say WHO should do their job, I mean they should keep their mouths shut and do their job, hence my reference to them "crying wolf". It feeds the antivaxxer and pandemic denier rhetoric.
Well, that would depend on how quickly it killed. And when people were able to transmit it. But yes, you are correct -- a high fatality rate reduces the transmission chances.
