Good read, found this interesting... "If we had not known about a new virus out there, and had not checked individuals with PCR tests, the number of total deaths due to “influenza-like illness” would not seem unusual this year. At most, we might have casually noted that flu this season seems to be a bit worse than average. The media coverage would have been less than for an NBA game between the two most indifferent teams." This guy, and I put up his information because some will say he isn't qualified, appears to be leaning toward this being an over reaction. John P.A.
