    Informative, but you can still hear them trying to downplay the risks. For example, the standard line on masks is that they don't work. But they do. Minimally maybe, but if you want to wear a mask then go ahead. Personal health is your priority. Don't take chances with this one. Also, they were not so clear on when a sick person should go to the hospital. Going back to the 2009 outbreak of flu, back then they said that if you're having difficulty breathing, then seek help immediately. A high fever might also serve as an objective measure to report instead of just saying you feel really, really sick.
