    It's not the mortality that concerns me... it's the quick spread and not controlling it. This can mutate into something more serious if we don't get it under control.

    However, freaking out will not help gain control. It will exacerbate it.

    I'd be lying if I said I knew the exact name.

    Her dad was in the gulf war, lots of the offspring from those fighters have autoimmune diseases now.

    I got an autoimmune disease so I was wondering if we had the same. Doesn’t run in the family though

    Viruses will trend towards becoming less serious over time as the strains mutates to become more accepting to theirs hosts to ensure their survival.

    In layman terms, viruses will make themselves less deadly, so that your body has less of a reaction and doesn't fight it as hard and fast.

    So it's likely to mutate more towards the common cold than ebola.

    I think a lot of the closings/cancellations around here are over-the-top but I can understand why they want to slow the spread.

    My mother-in-law is in assisted living and I'm shocked they are still allowing people to visit. They're the most likely to get hard if they catch it.

    Heard anyone that gets the virus will have permanent scar tissue and irreparable damage to one's lungs. So let's not pass this off as nothing more than the flu.

    Plus, if you're overweight you are most likely diabetic aka insulin resistant, which has ben a big underlying health issue of people that don't do well when they get it.

    Not trying to be negative, just speaking the known facts.

    Schools shutdown for 3 weeks, at least.

    Luckily, spring break is next week.
