I just saw his video and surprise surprise he is absolutely fine now like everyone who does not have serious health problems.

If the common cold got this much media coverage and was given a cute name the numbers of deaths reported from that (just from Jan 1st) would be far higher then this virus and cause all this panic. That has never shut down the world and crippled economies. People just buy into the panic from this because of the numbers flaunted by the media and the fact its been given a 'name'.

If the same attention was given to colds, flu, sickness bugs, some people would never leave their house.
