That's likely.

The scary part is, we don't know. People keep saying Coronavirus is nothing because the flu is deadlier. Well, we know that come March/April, influenza season dies off. We don't know how the coronavirus will act and that's why we are taking all of these precautions to limit and eradicate it as soon as possible.
May seem like overkill to keep everyone in their homes, but it could also save millions in the long run. Gotta do what you gotta do.

Is this a The Stand scenario? Because if so, I am #teamflagg.

I've seen the daily total number of deaths, and of course the number keeps going up. But the more important thing from a global epidemic/pandemic perspective is the rate of increase in the number of new deaths each day. So I made a little table of the number of new deaths each day over the last two weeks.

Jan 24th: 8
Jan 25: 16
Jan 26: 15
Jan 27: 18
Jan 28: 26
Jan 29: 26
Jan 30: 38
Jan 31: 43
Feb 1st: 46
Feb 2nd: 46
Feb 3rd: 57
Feb 4th: 64
Feb 5th: 66
Feb 6th: 73
Feb 7th: 73
Feb 8th: 86

Something to watch over the next few weeks.

To really project it you would need a cohort analysis of infection and deaths.. I would imagine deaths would occur quicker in time among already fragile people.

The measures are draconian, but if it works then great.. my concern is that once people go back to work, how resiliant is the virus on surfaces and such..

Also, the number of infections in Thailand have to be a concern. It would be difficult to implement the Chinese measures in some of these countries..

Tesla factory in Shanghai is opening back up Monday.
Arent the Tesla's made there for the Chinese market? Or is this just another way for China to export the coronavirus?

Just wait until all these failed biological warfare attempts by China combine and mutate into some ultra virus. It's coming.

Time to unleash some chemtrails on China to control their minds for the good of humanity.
