    EVERYBODY will eventually be exposed to it, THOUSANDS will die, if not millions. Prepare to catch it, you probably will. and the masks do NOTHING to keep you from catching it, FACT. It kills 2-3%, and people that get it are contagious for a couple weeks before they show symptoms. Basically everyone that gets it develops pneumonia. And then when they are supposedly over it, it shows up in them again. It will be rampant soon, as it already is in some places. And there is NOTHING you can do about it. Stock up dry goods and medicine now, because you probably won`t be able to soon. It IS going to happen. The u.s. is NOT immune, not by ANY means.

    Nope, but you should be very afraid of general stupidity.  And the worse thing is, its growing and its highly contagious!

    You should not fear it but you should be aware of it and prepared for it.

    It's up to you if you want to fear the corona virus, or not, or the rest of the U.S citizens. If you are not afraid of catching it, and maybe dieing from having it then I don't see why you should be afraid of it, or anyone else who lives in the U.S.

    All people coming from corona affected areas should be checked at entry points to ensure that they don't carry the virus

    Strengthen the body: Make sure that your family gets sufficient sleep and eats foods that will help the body strengthen its defenses. Your diet should emphasize fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and lean proteins, which supply the amino acids needed to build up the immune system.

    Create an environment unfriendly to germs: To the extent possible, keep your counters and tables thoroughly clean daily. Wash cooking and eating utensils after every use, and regularly wash bedclothes. Disinfect things that people touch: doorknobs, telephones, remote controls. Maintain good ventilation, if possible.

    Practice good habits of personal cleanliness: Wash your hands diligently with soap and water or with an alcohol-based hand cleaner. (If practical, carry a small bottle of hand sanitizer with you.) Try not to share towels with anyone for drying hands or face, not even with other family members.

    Do not touch your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands. If possible, use disposable tissues to cover your mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing and throw them away immediately. Avoid sharing devices that can readily spread germs, such as telephones. Children need to be thoroughly trained in these practices. Such habits are good all the time but especially so during the flu season .

    To some extent yes. If your young and healthy you will be fine.  

     The fear is being overblown

    80,000 people died of the flu in 2018/19 flu season In the US  and it hardly made the news

    No, not if you want 40% of the workforce to be too sick to work so the economy crashes and burns.
