And the panicing begins.
I think there will be:
No travel restritions.
No martial law.
No mandatory vaccinations - we'll probably have more than one available, and highly recommended we get them.
After an initial blurb with the media, this will again die down to a low simmer until this fall, where it will get legs again.
I also expect:
It will spread further, and the mortality rate will be very low.
It will not mutate. People keep assuming since 1918 flu mutating this one must. Well, the scientist who discovered and figured how how to beat the
Sars (and others as well), have pretty much said... it's always a possibility of such a mutation, but the chance is exceptionally low.
I guess you can also panic about a giant space worm making a detour by our planet and swallowing it whole, but you know.. that's not likely to happen
I would say that until there is a reason to panic further, there is no need to panic now.
