Dr. Drew‘s beyond fed up with the media coverage of the coronavirus because he believes it’s majorly overblown and causing hysteria … while another major threat’s being ignored.
The doctor was outside Beauty & Essex restaurant in L.A. Wednesday night went he went off on the media for misreporting the coronavirus, and even worse … failing to point out facts in order to alleviate some of the panic.
According to Dr. Drew — who was leaving sports agent Darren Prince‘s 50th bday bash — coronavirus should be reported as being widespread, BUT, much milder of a virus than everyone is freaking out about. As he points out, there are tens of thousands of people infected … but only a few hundred deaths.
By comparison, roughly 60,000 people die from the flu each year in the U.S. alone … and it can be as high as 646,000 on average worldwide!!!
So, it’s safe to say Dr. Drew’s right when he says influenza is way more of a killer than the coronavirus … so you should get your flu shot. We know Dr. Oz agrees too.
To be fair, though … Dr. Drew’s numbers are a couple hundred short when it comes to coronavirus deaths. So far, 563 have died — all but 2 in China — and there’s more than 28,000 cases across the globe.
Still … nowhere near flu territory.
