    Corona virus is not influenza virus.

    Sick is sick, but some sick kills while other sick just makes you feel bad. Of the ones that kill, some kill more than others.

    @concerned parent, You need to turn off Fox News and take a look around the country and see whats going on. This is not just the Flu and I bet you are taking precautions that you never did last year with the Flu. This doesnt mean panic but they are talking about putting 2 people on the same ventalator at the same time. This is not just the Flu!

    This is just another case of the flu people. Drink and take plenty of Vitamin C and build up your immune system. People who is hoarding food, bathroom items really needs to stop it. You continue to do that please stop and think and see the bigger picture. You can be causing people to starve or possibly die. STOP BEING GREEDY. GOD DON’T LIKE GREEDY. NOR SELFISHNESS. THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT HOARDERS ARE IN A TIME OF CRISIS GREEDY AND SELFISHNESS

    I know we are all concerned and some maybe scared. This is our country and we may have different opinions on how to run it but keep in mind, we would rather be no where else in any event. We are lucky and gifted to live where we do. The United States are United for a reason. We citizens are the power and unity.
