Here’s What Jim Rickards Tells People Who Think It’s Just the Flu

from Kitco NEWS

Comparing the current outbreak to the flu is like comparing apples to oranges, said best-selling author Jim Rickards.

“I think last year, 20,000 people died of the flu, and so far in the United States, we have about 100 fatalities, and they say it’s not a big deal. But that completely misses the point,” Rickards said, point to the uncertainty around the disease’s contagion factor, how it spreads, and current lack of a viable vaccine.
