2-3 % is no where that bad. Considering that the vast majority of people getting sick are those older than 60 and people who are already sick and we do not yet have a vaccine and also that it's method of transmission is common for many respiratory conditions like colds and any strain of influenza , that 2-3 % mortality rate is very low. It is now where near what the media is implying , i. e. this is the end of times and we are all going to die tomorrow!!! In some weeks the transmission rate will speed up , then slow down and then it will reach a plateau. Most people will be exposed to it ( as most people in the US are exposed to the cold virus , the flu , etc) , they will recover with only mild symptoms and they will have developed a natural immunity to the virus. This pattern of viral transmission has been observed for decades by medical experts around the world regarding many , many viruses. In this regard the COVID-19 is nothing special. Yes. Some people will die from COVID-19 just like some people will die from the flu or the common cold or pneumonia, this is how it is. But the if you pay attention to the media ( especially CNN) you might as well just say the world is going to end tomorrow. This hysteria is largely due to the media's over reaction to this and they have done a fine job of creating a mass hysteria amongst the public.
