This thread was created a month ago almost to the day and there were 40k documented cases then whereas there are 116k cases now. Is there a point at which you don't have to be an infectious disease expert to start to be concerned?
It would have to be spreading a lot faster, and be much deadlier for it to concern me a great deal personally. It is my expectation that it will be handled professionally, and held in check like the many other diseases that have passed through the last several years. People that dislike the administration will say it was handled terribly. People that like the administration will say it was handled perfectly. In the end, it will fade away with little societal impact.
The problem is that the number if cases is wayyyy artificially low. It's been in the U.S. for 7ish weeks now. We most likely (by the math) have thousands of cases.
There was an Atlantic article yesterday that projects that Iran has around 2 million cases.
