Harold, that paper you cited that appears on preprint states
At this stage we can observe that whilst Europeans have been affected, they have remained healthy. in addition, the number of non-Chinese cases detected have been very low, making it difficult to determine how lethal the virus is on different races.A preprint is a piece of research that has not yet been peer reviewed and published in a journal. In most cases, they can be considered final drafts or working papers.
It appears to being mainly affecting older people and if it spreads in the West, then we should start seeing lots of dead old white people, which is the demographic that usually die from flu every winter anyway.
Edited to add: Here's a link to the research (like yours not peer-reviewed yet) that states that
https://www.biorxiv.org/content/10.1101 ... 6.919985v1A comparison between eight individual samples demonstrated that the Asian male one has an extremely large number of ACE2-expressing cells in the lung.
