"Cr@p! We're all gonna die!"
In a an informal chat with my boss today, he pointed out that in this country (Norway), every year almost a thousand people die from the regular flu. Corona is not getting really serious until it gets up do that level. We currently have a death count of seven, so for now, we really shouldn't be too munch in a panic.

I agreed, and for the sake of staying calm: This country has around sixty thousand deaths every year, no matter from which angle you see it, and we have no way of preventing that. Deaths from ordinary flu are almost exclusively elderly people. Today, you always die from one thing or another. One out of sixty deaths is from the flu. The flu is just one of many possible ways of dying. Corona is another. Mortality rate is invariably one per person.

My boss was silent for so long that I suspect that he had never before looked at it from that angle.

(You could make another comparison: As long as fewer people are killed by Corona than by car accidents, then it isn't that bad.)
