Here is a comparison of the death toll so far between the COVID-19, also known as the Coronavirus and the Flu.
As of March 14th, the United States has 2,195 reported COVID-19 cases with 49 confirmed fatalities. Worldwide, more than 130,000 people have been infected, and more than 4,900 have died.
So far, the CDC has estimated (based on weekly influenza surveillance data) that at least 12,000 people have died from Influenza, commonly called the Flu, between Oct. 1, 2019 through Feb. 1, 2020, and the number of deaths may be as high as 30,000.
Even though the death numbers for the Coronavirus is way lower than that of the Flu, the whole world is in a state of fear and panic of getting infected and die by the Coronavirus disease.
This morning the Lord was showing me that He is using the Coronavirus outbreak to get the attention of the world as He is saying to it;
“Don’t be afraid of those who want to kill your body; they cannot touch your soul. Fear only God, who can destroy both soul and body in hell.”Matthew 10:28 NLT
