Can you catch any of the diseases you mentioned?
If your relative has heart disease or cancer, you will get them if they cough in your direction.
Hospitals cannot cope with the influx of patients who urgently need respiratory care due to this disease. If nothing is done to slow the spread, ALL hospitals across the country (and in every country) are overcrowded with patients they cannot treat because they do not have the space, equipment, or staff to care for them Anyone who would catch it and who would be sick enough to need urgent help.
It's not really about the number of deaths. It is about the number of people who catch it and who need urgent medical help to recover.
GET INFORMED and don't become part of the problem.
The U.S. government never had to send military medical vessels to a location to help with an excess of patients with heart disease or cancer.
