I am told this virus is no more dangerous than the common flu which kills hundreds of thousands a year I’m told, but that’s mostly confined to the old, sick and infirm. So why do these, presumably young and healthy, health care personel seem so deathly afraid of catching it?

“no more dangerous than the common flu”

COVID-19 death rate is 2.67%, common flu is 0.09%.

COVID-19 is 30 TIMES deadlier.
