Yes, this novel strain of corona virus is a type of SARS, just like SARS was novel back when, it attacks the respiratory system, so its no surprise that over-polluted populations will be more likely to get sick and die. Why are they over-hyping this strain, it's probably a test of the coming pharma military police state, and China is showing the controlling elites it can do the job at policing the population to forcefully comply with false fears and high technology to monitor compliance. Now this military police state propaganda control mechanism is spreading to other countries. All the face masks and vaccines in the world are a total laughable and farce. Natural vitamin D, vitamin C, and healthy foods and environment will do more to protect from SARS corona virus than anything else. This strain of SARS Corona virus is no different than all the other previously hyped.
