duh.... large gathering of people, thousands of people, you're going to have exposure. It is what it is.

However, these types of articles lead to chicken little believing the sky is falling. Yes, someone is infected, yet 97.3% (the number changes depending on what source you use) of people who are infected recover. So much self quarantining, so much panic.....

Just for comparison, SARS had a 10% fatality rate, MERS had a 34% mortality rate, and ebola had a 40% mortality rate..... so while more people are getting infected, fewer people are dying. Compare this to H1N1, or swine flue, where there were between 700million and 1.4 billion infected, with a mortality rate of 0.02%...

Want to prevent catching it? cover your mouth when you sneeze, and wash your hands.
