: : : This paranoia is actually the realization that our way of life will be radically changed in the new few months, if not more. If you honestly believe this is paranoia, please feel free to provide links to established authors and institutions as to why this is so. There's nothing I'd like better than to return to life as it was.

None of those dealt with the issues of large crowed in enclosed spaces, only the "perhaps" the virus won't be too bad. They all simply say that the virus "may" not be very bad.
And that last link was to a highly politically motivated quack doctor.
We do know that Covid-19 is extremely virulent to the older population. I have the strange notion that older folks are still important.
We don't want to find out how dangerous the virus is by letting it spread rapidly and betting that it won't be that bad. It's better to slow the growth curve until we know for sure.
