18. Far less people can contract this virus, and yet, it could still be far more severe
Just based on fatality rates alone. Remember, we are only in the early, early stages here so who knows what it will climb to (if anything).

It just seems like a silly comparison though (because you are only considering 1 facet, which is number of cases). If you think the coverage is silly, negating it with your own trite comments may not be the best approach.
