    They don't even know how many people have it and are walking around, or just feeling like they have a slight cold.. This number is speculation at best

    Well if it makes people feel better, I got a friend whose brother is some type of elite doctor in the area of respiratory and he says this is way overhyped, especially the part about the permanent respiratory damage, so who knows what to believe?! It’s a shame you can’t rely on news, internet, etc...to be even close to factual these days.

    Exactly. That’s why pretty much everything I’ve read says that “social distancing” is a good idea for now. People can be contagious without realizing it.

    Out of those tested. It's down. It will end up around 1% of those infected. Around the same as the flu.

    the flu mortality is .1%. The death rate will not be like the flu. They know that much.

    Yes .1 sounds more like it. I can’t imagine over 1% of 327+ million dying ...maybe I just don’t want to.

    Real or not.

    Dangerous or not.

    Ever if none of us on here never get the virus.

    None of that maters at this point. We are ALL in it. It's at the point our very live hoods are on the line. Look at all those places closed and people staying home spending all their money on supplies. Once this is over they will not have much extra money to spend making it harder for business to recover. Look around, ever those with full jobs that are still running they WILL soon have their orders cut back then they start laying off because they used their money to keep their employees on the job . It's going to take time for the economy to recover.

    I'm pretty sure I read the virus death rate is .1% for healthy individuals.

    3 to 10 million estimated died from the Depression. I'm worried more about this (a Super Depression) than some virus.
