No, but it is a valid comparison, just a more wide-spread genocide. Too many “oops” viruses out of the Asian (ok mostly Chinese) region. Whether from societal behaviours or regime alleged accident, things need to change.
Likewise the behaviours that transmit Ebola in Africa. At least that isn’t the current pandemic. That would be truly horrific.
That said, this disease appears to be less dangerous than it might have been so it’s all a bit weird.
