56 Million people die in the world every year.

Strangely there is so much noise around Corona Virus.

Even common cold has 20 times more numbers:)

An estimated 38 million people are suffering from HIV currently. No one is talking about them. Maybe it is old news.

Which makes me wonder why?

Probably it is the disease of the season.

Am I missing something here?

Probably it should be named as “Fear Virus” we are spreading it faster than it actually is.


P.S: Passive smoking kills 600,000 people a year 🙂
