The flu has been with us for a long time, and our immune-system can often handle it. The death-rate is low; the number of deaths in the US is large, because a lot of people are infected with the flu, multiple times a year. It's only a threat to people with a weak immune-system, which is why I get a free vaccine each year.

There's no such vaccine for the corona-virus, and it is something new for our immune-systems. One would also not expect a city of 11 million to be quarantined for something like the flu. Still, that happened.

Selina Wang on Twitter: "Latest #coronavirus stats: 11,949 cases, 259 deaths. Still too early to gauge death rate, but this @businessinsider chart puts #CoronavirusOutbreak into perspective. The 2009 H1N1 flu eventually became one of the seasonal flu[^]
