The Corona Virus is believed to have originated in Wuhan, a city in China.

Thanks to the ever-vigilant media, we are getting inundated with charts and graphs about the disease’s point of origin, spread patterns, mortality rate, and general effects on the human body.

With all of this data, we’re all getting a great lesson on how the disease started with one person in one city and then spread across the globe. We’re seeing how quickly a disease can spread and how it does that. We’re learning about the roles of air travel, awareness, and cleanliness in how a virus spreads.

In other words, we’re all getting an awareness lesson in how every cold and flu virus over the course of history has spread. Because, in the end, isn’t that really all this is?

Every cold, every flu, started somewhere. There’s always a patient zero – even if that patient zero simply has a mutated strain of a preexisting virus. And that person spreads the disease until it runs its course through humanity.

What’s happening with the Corona Virus is no different than any other airborne/contact virus in history.

This is not the first, and it won’t be the last. Thanks to media hysteria, we’re finally able to get a real-time lesson in just how powerful your last sneeze might be.
