Fear, aided by the media, is clouding our decision making...

Thanks to Mobeius2249 for the link!

I'm reaching a few terrible conclusions about this pandemic.

1.  In the US and Europe the areas most affected by this outbreak are major urban areas.

2.  Not race baiting but I believe that those areas also have the highest concentrations of Chinese tourists/visa holders/workers etc...

3.  A look at the map shows that for the most part fly over country is largely unaffected...yes there are cases but it isn't as bad as many had predicted (including myself with the early information...AND...the Chinese example).

4.  It's obvious that not only did China lie during the initial outbreak but they've also lied about the infected and deaths they've suffered.

5.  I can't make heads or tails of the situation in Italy/Spain/Iran.  Perhaps there is something unique to each country.  I don't know.  What I do know is that even at this point we should be looking at dramatically more killed by this virus than we already have.

6.  Politics have obviously entered into the picture of this issue.  I remain convinced that keeping the economy shut down WILL be worse than doing a partial opening of those areas that are lightly affected.

7.  We are operating out of fear, not reason.  We should adjust course immediately.
