Re: COVIDD-19 'Pandemic'

So?? are you trying to minimize it too??? (as your hero is trying to do)
This virus has only been identified in the last couple of months.
why not compare the stats in China?? for the duration of this current epidemic.

The chances of an infected person dying from coronavirus is 2%, which is about the same as the flu.

Myth: Getting COVID-19 is a death sentence

That's not true. About 81% of people who are infected with the coronavirus have mild cases of COVID-19, according to a study published Feb. 18 by the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention. About 13.8% report severe illness, meaning they have shortness of breath, or require supplemental oxygen, and about 4.7% are critical, meaning they face respiratory failure, multi-organ failure or septic shock. The data thus far suggests that only around 2.3% of people infected with COVID-19 die from the virus. People who are older or have underlying health conditions seem to be most at risk of having severe disease or complications. While there's no need to panic, people should take steps to prepare and protect themselves and others from the new coronavirus.

Number of people outside China to have died from coronavirus? Just 230, or so. Meanwhile, thousands of Britons will die from the flu this year.

Rumors and chaos in Alabama point to big problems as U.S. seeks to contain virus

Fear that the plan crafted to house infected patients was flawed gave new energy to already circulating rumors and wild theories about the virus

FYI, stay healthy, wash your hands often, and God Bless You All.

This is not something you want to catch, problems breathing, kidneys under pressure you bloate, Hershey Squirt, Evey muscle sore and joint, migraine.

I hear it really sucks.

Re: COVIDD-19 'Pandemic'

here is the rough math:

it is expected that this virus will infect about 70 percent of 7.5 billion people, killing about 2 percent of them.

so 105 million will probably perish in the initial outbreak.

in case you were wondering why the markets etc are shaken.

Re: COVIDD-19 'Pandemic'


Fed cuts interest rates by half a percentage point �� the biggest cut since 2008 �� in emergency step to address coronavirus fallout


Central bank leaders voted unanimously on the cut, which came as global finance leaders try to avert panic about the virus's spread. It's the biggest one-time cut since the financial crisis.
