A couple of people begging us to take this seriously, most of us joking around about it, and then everything comes crashing down.

I've never wanted so badly for @yuneeq to be proven horribly wrong.

Trust me I wish I get proven wrong. Perhaps the cure is found tomorrow and distributed en masse. But the more I researched the virus and the lesser-known news from China, the more I started to get concerned. What will happen when it reaches the US? I figured from the quick China ban that we would be ready as the threat became more imminent. Then it reaches the US, and I start hearing from all sorts of potentially infected people that can’t get tested due to extremely narrow criteria and lack of test kits. But still, we have time for the US to get this right. We’re a top country, and we have all the resources to throw behind it.

But time passes and still nothing, and now I’m worried. Not panicking, but worried. And I don’t remember the last thing I worried about. Not a single impending hurricane, blizzard, or pandemic could get more than a yawn out of me. I’m worried not for myself, but for the countless people I know and don’t know, that are now at extreme risk, and for what - for no reason at all! I’m trying for over a month to convince people that they shouldn’t laugh it off, it’s not the flu, that people we love need to be protected and prepared for. That the more prepared we are, the less we need to worry. Instead people have been laughing at me for not wanting to shake hands or for stocking up on masks, sanitizer, and disinfectants. Calling me paranoid or irrational despite having none of these traits before in my life.

Someone told me they can’t sleep tonight. I told them I haven’t slept well the last month.

Can't make people take it seriously if they don't want to or if their supreme leader tells them not to.
I don't think anybody (here at least) takes what Trump says that seriously. I think it's more like with the media's track record of the past few years everyone just assumes it's all BS and just the latest "hoax" for them to attack Trump with.

It is very serious for older people. Based on the numbers from almost ever country (Italy is by far the most honest) this is NOT a serious threat for people under 60 who are relatively healthy. I am in no way saying that people should take this seriously but there is no legit reason to panic for most healthy people. Still a shocker to me that there has not been one child fatality under 10. In Italy there is NOT ONE DEATH under the age of 50 and only 2% of total deaths from 50-59. People said China was lying about their numbers but based on what we see from Italy the numbers are very similiar.

The reason I'm worried is that my parents and inlaws are elderly. I can't stop worrying.

Worrying doesn't help.  Action does.  Educate them, help them get prepared, and daven.

In fairness, OP missed a word and meant to write “should not take this  seriously” instead of “take it seriously”.
