You can't test only sick people, it skews the numbers badly, heathy people must be included in testing numbers and they are not anywhere but Germany so far. They are testing 100,000's of thousands randomly and are getting real world numbers not politicaly jacked up garbage...
Statistically, .75% and 1.6% are not that different.

On the other hand, 0.02% and even 0.75% is.

Point is, it IS more deadly. But we shouldn't be shutting down the country for Pete's sake.

Everyone is going to get it eventually. No immunity till you pass through.

My big thing is I don't like that fact that some people are shutdown and others aren't. I feel like they are dragging this deal longer than it needs to be. Either shutdown completely or don't shut down at all. If EVERYBODY except first responders were to be on a self-quarantine for 2 weeks you wonder if it would have spread so bad... Again this is just my personal opinion.

So 0.45% hospitalized and 0.02% died who caught the virus. (CDC and World Health Organization numbers) This was the worst flu outbreak in recent history.

As of today, worldwide, COVID-19 has been confirmed to have infected 640,589 putting approx 128,118 in the hospital and killing 29,848. That's approx 20% hospitalization and 4.6% die who catch the disease world wide.

In the US 112,468 confirmed with about 20,000 hospitalized and 1,841 dead. So 1.6% are dying.

Just saying.
I think this years flu has killed more people in the US alone then the swine did in 2009.

We all have opinions on it.

I personally donít think we are being told the truth on it all.

Another thing I have a strong opinion on is I think they are pro longing the end outcome by doing what they are doing. Itís going to spread. Itís going to go everywhere unless everything is shut down for 4 weeks nationwide which i donít see happening personally but could be wrong.
