Viruses by their very nature are constantly mutating. If this strain becomes airborne it’s going to take the effort of everyone to help fight it. Here in the US we have great medical care, and our population is generally healthier than a lot of places in the world. I suspect if it spreads here, we will be able to fight it, but at what cost in human life. If read several articles that talk about population reset. Several seem to think that one is overdue. They make no guess as to how, but that it is inevitable.
Has anyone in their research come across any unbiased estimates of the effect on population if this does become a pandemic. The initial article defines the risk as moderate. Seems like stocking up on some isolation materials seems prudent.
