…get your flu shot!
It’s indicative of how we’ve lost all ability to do any kind of sane risk management. The new Chinese coronavirus has killed 170 people, which could actually be ten times that – but it’s in a country of over a billion people. There are five, maybe six people in this country who have it and it’s front page news. They’re cancelling flights to China for weeks. Every news hour shows folks coming into US airports and being screened and quarantined.
Five, maybe six people.
And yet the flu kills, on average, over 8,000 people a year in this country.
Not five people. Or six. OVER 8,000. And in a bad year that can double.
Not sick. Dead.
Did you get your flu shot this year?
Then STFU about coronavirus.
