Coronavirus causes flu-like symptoms, can be fatal in the old and already moribund, but is experienced by most sufferers as little more than an annoyance. In other words, it's just like all the other viruses that sweep across the world in winter- and less dangerous than many.

And yet we're letting it play havoc with our lives, mess with the global economy, shut down cities, inhibit travel, cancel sporting events and even postpone the opening of the new James Bond movie.

So what's so different this time?
