What confuses me, fundamentally, about the Corona virus, is this:
Either it will become so widespread that we just won’t practically be able to avoid it, or, like seasonal flu, it will affect so few people that most of us just won’t ever come into contact with it.
All the reporting and even statements from the PM (since when is Boris Johnson considered an authority?) are going more towards the first option, but China seems to have managed to keep it under control.
It’s probably a good thing that people are hyper aware, because it will limit the spread, but… I don’t know, it just seems like there’s a lot of missing information. I think the confusion worsens my anxieties over the situation because it feels like the people in charge know something I don’t. Although I don’t think they really do…
