I asked the same question, but I think it is because this virus is more contagious than the previous swine flu (I remember waiting rooms packed with patients, which was obviously a breeding ground for catching the virus, but the corona virus is on another level, this is why we need to stay at home). Also, corona virus patients are contagious for longer before they show symptoms, compared to the swine flu, thereby making it easier to spread the virus to other people. Good luck and stay safe.
