I usually am about this kind of stuff, I always face situations like this as reporters exercising their futility about writing about the same thing (economy, war) so they focus on something brand new and bring it to a completely alarming level, but holly crap, this thing is spreading like crazy! This time it seems like they’re not overreacting, it might be the real deal.
There’s not a lot we can do right now, except not flying to or from Mexico (I would generally stay out of airplanes, those bug incubator tubes) and washing your hands a lot (and keep them out of your face). Let’s just sit and wait and hope it goes away as quickly as it came.
