There is a flip side to that. It is important for people to realize that their symptoms may be at such a level yet and be from this virus and be deadly for others.
That is the point. Although you only feel like you have the flu (or even a minor cold, as someone recently returned from Italy said his symptoms were no worse than the common cold) YOU SHOULD NOT GO OUT. For the people it is dangerous to, it is deadly.

True and there is also the cases where it is just the flu. The issue is to many are repeating "this is just the flu" and that is dangerous for everyone!!!

That is the importance of people understanding the two steps. That for some it is like the but still more dangerous overall.

How about we get them to understand one thing at a time?  ;)

Statistically it’s not accurate aside for children, but in overall numbers, 0.2% fatality rate for healthy young adults - despite being much higher - is not extremely concerning. But worth noting that the sickness is much harsher than the flu, and many more healthy people end up in the ICU, which obviously is a big problem.

Holy Name hospital in NJ has 11 cases, all between 28-48 y/o, here’s the CEO’s account of what they’re dealing with - https://www.roi-nj.com/2020/03/14/opinion/life-at-the-epicenter-of-n-j-s-coronavirus-outbreak/
One interesting point he makes there is how the inaccuracies of the tests available cause their own risks with extensive testing.

I think that it is more important for them to understand that they may kill others even with mild symptoms. That is much more important to prevent spread than the other direction.

I have to issue with that but adding "it is just like the flu" is not needed. That will mean something totally different to them like it is no big deal.

Testing should be in addition to isolation, even if it comes out negative.

Chillax People!!!... This is not the time to politicize this situation or put blame to this or that.

My 2 cents:

I work in the hospital and we have rules and protocol in place to follow .
We are trained to deal with such out break. SO DONT PANIC!!!
There is a saying that we say in the medical field... " We can not Treat Stupid! "

If you think you are healthy , you do not feel flu like symptoms etc..
Then go about your life. Not all of us need to be tested. Only the sick
will! The most important thing is TO PROTECT TO SELF!!!
Follow the guide lines that you see and read in the news.
As the Brits say " Keep Calm and Carry On!!! "

It's important to be honest, otherwise you lose all credibility.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

You mean like it will blow over or 15 will soon be zero?
Now on a serious note, every day they give us worse news. You really believe that is by chance? Just gives us all the bad news now.

Like arguing about death rates of flu vs COVID when you have not the slightest clue about methods of analyzing CFR?
