No, but he's presenting the facts in a very deliberate way.
Yes, obviously there is more social media now than 20 years ago.
Mortality rate for < 50s - that's a shit argument that I hate, because it's very much the 'I'm all right Jack' attitude.
Global mortality rate outside China is 1.55% - that's still a hell of a lot.
80,000 of 89,000 infections are in China - what's the relevance of that? They've quarantined whole cities and it's that much and infection rate is only going up in the West.
I'm not saying that we should all panic, but I am saying that there is something to be deeply concerned about. 'An ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure' is an expression for a reason.
