Well, this is a report I really hoped never to write.  But we all need to get our head on straight around this fast-spreading viral outbreak.

A pandemic is #3 on my personal “oh shit” list (a prolonged grid-down event is #2, and a global world war with nukes is, by far, #1)

In other words, a pandemic is a pretty serious beast.

The reason is simple: like many thoughtful people, once a pandemic is in my neck of the woods, I’m not going to be doing anything in the company of strangers.  No shopping, no going to restaurants, and especially no traveling in closed up metal tubes with recirculated air (i.e. planes and trains).

I won’t be alone in those behaviors.  How many airline pilots, train conductors, trash collectors, and medical personnel have to call in “sick” to disrupt the entire system?  Not that many.

No Worse Than The Flu, Right?

Why is this Wuhan New Coronavirus (officially “2019-ncov”) different from the flu? You will be reading that comparison a lot where people will note that in 2019 the CDC estimated that flu sickened 49 million people, hospitalized 960,000 and killed about 80,000 people.

The 2019-ncov has only officially sickened less than a thousand (as of this morning) and killed 25.
