Keeping virus in perspective

Molly McEwan, who grew up in Moran, is not worried about the Coronavirus, even though she's teaching in China.
She notes those who have died typically suffered from other underlying factors, and that infection rates are a scant percentage of China's population.

A Moran woman, who will be returning to China next week for her job as a teacher, said she isn’t worried about a new virus that has restricted travel to and from the country.

Molly McEwan teaches English and art in Cixi, a suburb of Ningbo, China, in the north Zhejiang province in eastern China. The population is about 1.5 million, but in China, that’s considered a relatively small village. 

“It’s very quiet and cozy with no tall buildings,” Molly said.
