It's quite mild

No it isn't!

Average death rate for the common flu is 0.17%.
If you compare that to Covid-19 the number of deaths as of today is 2,769 compared to 30,317 that has recovered.
Of the currently sick people (48,148) 8,851 is in serious or critical condition.
The numbers above are official statistics, I have no idea how reliable it is, or how they define serious or critical. (Dead or recovered should be easier though)
But I have no reason to believe it's faked. Considering this data is mostly from china, I would rather expect it to be whitewashed.

The reason it's taken so seriously is that the people that die, dies from a so called cytokine storm. They're bleeding to death in the same way as the victims of the Spanish flu of 1918-1920

The rest of your post I agree with though.
