I'm not one to panic, but I have been monitoring the situation as all of you are I'm sure. I started getting frustrated though, seeing false information floating around. People saying "This isn't as bad as _______." I mean, this is a pandemic, and some of the viruses people were comparing it to weren't. So I got curious.  What is the real data? How does Corona compare to other viruses? One of the main problems with gathering info is there are different variants on the same disease. I stuck with the biggest outbreaks I could research and the most commonly compared to diseases on social media. So here's my info-graphic. You decide what it means for you.
