Those are a ton of words without any references to back up the enormous prediction of 3-5%. Do you have any US numbers you can share that make you believe in the likelihood of a 3-5% mortality rate?The numbers in NYC & NJ alone will be significant. Population density is very high there & as testing is ramping, the numbers are surging upwards. The mortality rate will likely be between 3%-5%.
This is highly contagious. Doctors in Wuhan wore three (3) layers of PPE because it is that contagious.
New Orleans is also being hit hard because they recently had Mardi Gras with tens of thousands congregating in close quarters. Some of those people have passed away already (people in their 30s & 40s) who were previously healthy. A nurse in New Orleans (on the front lines) told me yesterday their case load is surging.
Los Angeles will also be hit hard as it's a gateway from China to the U.S. plus many people travel back & forth between NY & LA.
A tidal wave is coming. Be prepared and take extreme precautions. This is much worse than you think.
A Doctor in NY (who previously had EBOLA) fears COVID-19 more than EBOLA. Digest that for a minute.
Stay safe & take extreme precautions so we don't lose a large number of Americans & our economy bounces back quickly. If you don't take extreme precautions, you will see people you know passing away and the economy could go into a Depression...not a recession but a Depression. The stakes are super high.
Please do your part to exercise extreme precaution & limit the spread. It's in the best interests of this great country & humanity.
A few anecdotes and a polite warning may or may not be helpful. You seem like a thoughtful poster. Just really trying to understand how we get to those 3-5% death rate numbers continuously thrown around.
We can all concede this thing is massively contagious and tens of thousands (or more) of people will test positive. The rate is my focus.
