Getting my mind around the Coronavirus crisis

Tens of Millions infected worldwide
Approx. 1,000,000 die each year worldwide
Approx. 1.7 million infected in US alone
Approx. 20K-30K infected in US each year
Approx. 6K-8K die in US each year

110,000+ Infected worldwide in month of testing
Almost 4,000 deaths worldwide
500+ cases in US
20+ deaths in US
Let’s continue to venerate the Sexual Revolution
Let’s have more sex in as many combos possible
Let’s legalize more recreational drugs
Let’s rely on medications with possibly fatal side effects that might not work because sex is worth dying for!
Shut down – Everything
Ban travel
Quarantine entire regions
Shut down schools, churches, all commerce
Disrupt entire global markets
Impose near martial law
Empty store shelves of growing number of products
Watch markets collapse
Blame Trump

Of course there are other infections, like the Flu.  I pick HIV/AIDS since we don't just ignore the behaviors that lead to it, but encourage them.  So what am I missing?

Plus, in addition to the growing consensus that this could, coincidentally, be what torpedoes Trump's reelection bid, has anyone noticed the Hong Kong protesters - who stormed into 2020 as a major thorn in Beijing's side - have all but vanished? 

Sometimes brainless credulity is needed more to deny a conspiracy theory than to believe one.  I'm not saying we're there yet, but the more I'm seeing, the more that begins to ring true.
