One of the big differences between this and the flu is that you can walk around for two weeks without knowing you have it and can infect other people. If you are young and healthy, you can also probably work through it while only feeling a little below par. Some people never show any symptoms. The flu will knock you on your ass right away, forcing you to self-isolate because you're too sick to move around. Look at that cruise ship. About a quarter of them caught the virus with 8 dead. The flu would not have been so deadly. It's way more serious than SARS or MERS, certainly not fake news. If it wasn't affecting the stock market, Trump's response would be very different.
