Coronavirus (Covid-19) is a pretty virulent virus all right, but not in the way you might imagine. It is less our respiratory tracts it has infected than our inner sense of angst. By last Monday there were 79,331 confirmed cases worldwide, all but 2,069 of which were in China. There have been 2,595 deaths in China and 23 elsewhere in the world. And seasonal flu? According to an estimate by the US-based Center for Disease Control and Prevention, it has caused between 291,000 and 646,000 deaths globally a year. To put it another way, if the number of deaths from coronavirus rises a hundredfold in the next few weeks or months, it will only have reached the lower bound of the estimate for existing strains of flu.

This petition was prompted by the recent canceling of SXSW due to “COVID-19 concerns”, when it was actually cancelled because major international sponsors pulled out; this brought about a petition to cancel HLSR (which as of Saturday morning has started to gain local traction). 

Please sign this petition to show you are not going to buy into the fear-mongering media. Let’s stand together by washing our hands, covering our coughs, staying at home if we’re contagious, and living our lives NORMALLY!!
