    So here’s the good news about the coronavirus.

    The average healthy person who gets the virus might suffer a dry cough, fatigue and fever and be sidelined for a week or two, experts said Tuesday.

    But after that, they should be fine.

    “You stay at home, you’re not going out, and if it gets more serious, you check in at a medical facility or go to the ER” Manhattanville College Professor Anna Yeung-Cheung said of patients.

    “I’m not saying you shouldn’t be cautious,’’ she said. “I’m saying you shouldn’t go too crazy, like, ‘I’m dying.’”

    Dr. Marc Siegel, a professor of medicine at NYU Langone Medical Center, predicted that the recovery percentage rate for the virus would likely reach “the high 90s.”

    “One of the problems with this is it’s an evolving scenario, and people jump to the worst-case scenario,” said Siegel, also the medical director of SiriusXM’s Doctor Radio.

    “It’s too much Doomsday stuff.”

    He said that at the end of the day, he expects the coronavirus death rate to be under 1 percent, although “a little worse” than the flu.

    Of the more than 92,000 people who’ve contracted the virus worldwide, mainly in China, nearly 49,000 have already recovered, while about 3,130 have died. Siegel said that as more cases inevitably surface, this will bring the survival figure up and the death percentage down.

    Yeung-Cheung said, “Each virus is like people — they have their personality.

    “The interesting thing about this virus is it’s not that difficult to kill, like Ebola and norovirus,” using a little Clorox solution or Purell, she said.

    The microbiologist added that the virus is unique in that the very young are faring better than they usually do with their compromised immune systems.

    “That’s a blessing in a way,” Yeung-Cheung said. “On the other hand, that means they can also [silently] carry it.’’
