APS studies physics, not epidemiology - hence the panic response.

Where are the prominent epidemiologists?

Not a peep.

Same thing happened with the AIDS “epidemic” No epidemiologist was involved.

The WHO declared it a pandemic on March 11 (Wed.). <>

Note: WHO officials had said earlier they were hesitant to call the outbreak a pandemic in case it led governments and individuals to give up the fight. On Wednesday, they stressed that fundamental public health interventions can still limit the spread of the virus and drive down cases even where it was transmitting widely, as the work of authorities and communities in China, Singapore, and South Korea has shown.
“Describing the situation as a pandemic does not change WHO’s assessment of the threat posed by this coronavirus,” Tedros said at the WHO’s headquarters in Geneva, in making the announcement. “It doesn’t change what WHO is doing, and it doesn’t change what countries should do.”

At the same time, Tedros said: “This is not just a public health crisis, it is a crisis that will touch every sector — so every sector and every individual must be involved in the fight.”

How prescient!

bc .… lived in California during the 70’s and 80’s and doesn’t remember any AIDS panic; he certainly didn’t panic, neither did the Dr. for whose children he was a nannie.
