    Ignoring ideologues who impersonate epidemiologists on internet forums is an eminently sensible precaution.

    Despite the nonsense some ignorant politicians are spouting and their parrots repeating, coronavirus is far more lethal than the common flu. WHO Director-General Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus stated: “Globally, about 3.4% of reported COVID-19 cases have died. By comparison, seasonal flu generally kills far fewer than 1% of those infected.”

    There have been regimes that have advocated the race be improved by elimination of the elderly and inform, but the US had not previously exhibited that attitude.

    Director-General Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus has no idea how many cases there have been.

    I would estimated that half of over 70s have underlying medical conditions. And a significant percentage of under 70 have asthma and diabetes which are also underlying medical conditions. I'm not concerned for myself but am concerned for my parents

    Wrong.
    We must sacrifice our elderly and weak for the good of the economy?

    Diehard Trumpies need to ween themselves off Fake Don's tushy.

    Listen to medical professionals, especially epidemiologists without Fake Don's blatant political agenda. He's monumentally ignorant, self-obsessed, and he constantly lies.

    It's "under control!" It's a "problem that's going to go away!"
    "We have very few people with it" but
    "the people are getting better, they're all getting better!"

    And at least one Pro-Trumper is currently spreading fake news about anti-Trump folks rooting for the China virus.

    So you are still unwilling to address the science.
    No surprise

    No epidemiologist knows the death rate until the number of total infections can be ascertained.
    And the epidemiologists have already noted that the vast majority of cases have mild symptoms and thus are not reported

    Are simple fractions over your head?

    Contriving a rosy scenario to distort and minimize a pandemic has limited partisan political value.

    You can go with this if you feel you must:

    It's "under control!" It's a "problem that's going to go away!"
    "We have very few people with it" but
    "the people are getting better, they're all getting better!"

    "A lot of people think that goes away in April as the heat comes in.
    Typically that will go away in April. We're in great shape though!
    We have 12 cases, 11 cases, and many of them are in good shape."

    It's worth hearing the opinions of legitimate conservatives concerning Fake Don's failure to provide competent leadership.

    @gtconway3d

    .@realDonaldTrump actually can’t help that he’s intellectually, psychologically, and morally unfit for any public office. But there are 52 people who could’ve done something about it 5 weeks ago. No one should forget their responsibility, not this fall, in 2022 and 2024—or ever.

    ✔@MaxBoot

    Like I said: The entire country is now paying for those colossally irresponsible decisions--to elect Trump and not impeach him--as we face the worst crisis since 9/11 under the bungling leadership of the worst president in modern times.

    Nearly 1.25 million people die in road crashes each year, on average 3,287 deaths a day.

    Nursing homes should be closed to visitors, and most are during flu season, but the way to avoid spreading a disease that could be deadly to people with compromised immune systems is to stay away from places where they are in big numbers.

    The CDC puts it all in perspective. So far, these are the numbers for seasonal flu in the US. There are no headlines. Seasonal flu is almost as invisible as the H1N1 pandemic that inflicted 60 million and killed as many as 18,000 Americans in 2009 and 2010.

    from October 1, 2019, through March 7, 2020, there have been:

    36,000,000 – 51,000,000 flu illnesses
    17,000,000 – 24,000,000 flu medical visits
    370,000 – 670,000 flu hospitalizations

    22,000 – 55,000 flu deaths

    Trump was elected due to progressive policies.
    racial divide
    special rights
    illegal immigration immunity
    etc
    don't blame people for being people, blame yourself for the mind perversion

    If you were doing a similar happy dance in 2009 and 2010 when Obama and Biden were infecting 60 million and killing as many as 18,000 Americans as you do with each of the 41 Coronavirus deaths, Obama may not have been reelected to dismantle our military, fund Iran's adventurism in the Middle East, and outsource our manufacturing to China. Some of the 41 victims of Coronavirus might not have been exposed.

    They will be sacrificed regardless of the economy. Given the choice between saving a young persons life and an old persons life the medical community will choose to use limited resources on the younger person. They look at years saved rather than lives saved.
