This is the exact thing people should avoid ! PANIC. Unless you are over 60 and/or have a weak immune system along with existing conditions / illness, then your risk is very low Most people will recover from this, the mortality rate is still in the low single digit for now. Some cases where younger people have died of this, but they all had health conditions. It's important that you not panic - that can contribute to weakening your immune system - stress/panic releases cortisol, that's never a good thing for your immune system.
Also unless you had close contact with that person in your area, touching, being in proximity to their cough, droplets, etc, the risk of transmission is low.
SO try not to focus on the fact you will die, that person in your area has far more risks than you do.
The problem is not mortality, it is the reality that a very large number of people will be contaminated, but majority will recover, just like having a bad cold, some might even get it like a very mild cold.
Also I know that public transport in India is very crowded, just avoid or minimise your risk factors as much as you can and you will be fine. Remember that the virus is not spreading - PEOPLE are spreading it - I think if everyone follows directions and make some sacrifices, things can be much better than they are now..........especially for younger generation who want to always party, rave, go to bars and gather in large groups.
