I agree with your second paragraph. It's the rampant hysteria that is the problem with this virus. The actual documented numbers don't support the kind of panic we are seeing.
But the over-the-top reactions, speculation, hints of conspiracy, screams of doom, etc. THAT is the only real danger.
And we have to ask ourselves : WHY? Are we so eager for doom, or so gullible that we are freaking out over....over what exactly? 2900 hundred deaths in two months that are 98 percent elderly chinese males? Sad for them, absolutely, but what does it say for the world as a whole?
I have a feeling these very days may go down in history( with head shaking and laughter from our descendants) as the time when a cold scared the planet into a state of panic.
And sadly, now that the US dems/fake news have decided to make it political, the hysteria is only going to get worse.
