My wife works with the hospital and my brother too and they echo your post. This is serious and is spreading like wildfire but no need to panic.I work at the hospital and with some of the top doctors here. I will say we need to take it seriously and take the precautions needed(think we started too late). However if you do not have any serious health conditions or over the age of 60 you WILL BE FINE. Some people may have had it and got over it and not even known. I will say the one scary thing about it is how contagious it is and how easy it can spread. Luckily kids have very strong immune systems and it hasn't affected them. If this was as deadly to kids as the elderly, we would have WW3 chaos going on out there. Be safe, wash your hands, and stay out of large crowds.
