  1. ~ 56,000 die of the common cold in the US every single year – the constant media attention to the coronavirus however appears way over the top, the severity is noted and very serious – curious why the common cold isn’t discussed every day all day long ?

    1. Because most people can distinguish between a disease that kills 56000 people out of a billion cases (the average American has over three colds a year), and one that would kill 20 million people out of a billion cases. A mortality rate of 2% is a lot higher than 0.000056%.

      Rush Limbaugh to the contrary notwithstanding, Covid-19 is not the common cold. President Trump to the contrary notwithstanding, a vaccine is unlikely to see industrial level production within 18 months. That is why this is a big deal

    2. Because the media thrives on FUD. Boring stuff is not their forte. Scare tactics always generate headlines, and the media companies do not care if it creates panic. And the sheep just blindly follow along with it.
