It's called hyperbole.
But no one is talking the actual stats including in the country it originated. Nothing indicates this even is currently as bad as the flu, let alone will lead to hundreds of thousands dead in the long run. Talk to facts, not panic and assumptions.
You are spouting your opinion and calling it facts.
Why don’t you tell us with your facts how many people would die from covid 19 is we treat it the same as we treat the common flu season. No shutdowns, no social distancing, no extra purchases of medical supplies. Just apples to apples, flu versus covid 19, everything else equal. No opinions, just facts.
