No, apparently you don't as you just made the same mistake of using your own sense of incredibility as as some sort of reasoning tool.
Speaking of you being wrong, on March 11th you wrote:
"The NBA has suspended their season shows how stupid they are too. Just threw away millions of dollars over a flu bug...."
A couple of other times you've incorrectly alluded that this virus is a flu bug, or like a flu bug. On that day there had been 1100 cases of Covid-19 in the U.S. Today, just over a month later, there are over 547,000 and almost 22,000 deaths.
Do some math. Remember it isn't increasing in a linear fashion. Over 4,000 more Americans died last weekend. This is not the flu (both scientifically and practically.) It is more transmissible and more deadly.
We have no natural antibodies to it yet, no proven treatments, and will have no vaccine for at least a year.
All this outweighs your "I can't believe" line of reasoning.
