It's significantly more damaging than the flu. But yeah, just locking up the high risk people like those in nursing homes and cancer patients would be enough. This is the worst of both worlds since it's still spreading and our economy is tanking.We need a war to bring us back.
@meesegoMoo Yea but what kind of war? The people will never revolt against the elite they will instead had a civil war between conservatives and liberals which settles nothing because the assholes still will rule us.
I just mean any large scale conflict to stimulate the economy. It could just be my selfishness as I work in oil and these prices are killing us.
780 million people have not died. The number of deaths is less than 1 million. The number of affected is less than 10 million.
Sigh.* Yes. As of today. And if the numbers given are accurate. If everybody who is going to get it has gotten it and every one that will die has. You will be correct .
so why should I care? The number of people who die from cancer, car wrecks and alcohol are way more. Nobody is panicking about cancer.
I explained why I care. This has the potential to kill off the equivalent of twice the population of the United States. I have very few people I care about left. I hope to have a few more before I pass the mortal coil. I isolate so I won't accidently kill off someone who may become important to me or one of the people I care about. I accept that there is a non-zero chance I may be asymptomatic. I inconvenience myself and put aside my normal selfishness just in case. I can't tell you why you should care. I am not you. I can only explain why I care and think that perhaps there might be a reason you realise you do care after posting your question.
1. No it does not have that potential2. The mortality rate is not actually %10, that's only true among old people and people with pre-existing conditions.3. So yeah, a lot of old people and sick people will die. But how is that different from regular life? Old and sick people die all the time anyway. I don't care.
