And we know nothing about his medical status otherwise.
During the 1918 pandemic 1/3 of the earths population became infected. Assuming modern medicine could keep the mortality rate to 1%, that would still mean 25 million deaths world wide. But of course as soon as the disease spreads to countries without access to good medical services and were people are already suffering from poor living conditions and diet, their mortality rate will be much higher. Also, when your front line health care workers start becoming infected, even good health care systems can start to buckle.

Limiting itís spread is crucial.
