    Mind you, the casualty rate here in the States is just a little over a hundred. I think it's definitely an overreaction to have the markets crash as they've had.
    So right around your age, patty?

    While I am much older and wiser and better looking than the Millennial shitbirds that post on this site, I haven't hit 40 yet. So slow your role.


    Coronavirus don't want none of this.

    Let me guess, you think we will be under 200 deaths a week from now because we have only 100 so far. The deaths will come once we're overwhelmed and run out of ventilators, supplies, nurses, and doctors.

    "Cuomo says current projections show that in 45 days, New York could need up to 110,000 hospital beds and 37,000 ventilators for coronavirus patients. It now has 53,000 beds and 3,000 ventilators."

    Martial law is coming like in China and South Korea.. Something no American has seen since the Civil War.. There were several localized martial law declared like around the Katrina damage region, but nothing national since Civil War

    Who said i dont take it seriously? The flu is pretty serious. When i have it i dont go out in public gatherings betting other peolple infected. I dont go see my parents so i dont get them sick. I would do the same with this. Its actually what their telling peoe to do. You sound like an emotional b*tch dude

We know enough about the flu to make fairly close estimates of how many people it infects. This is what is used when calculating the flu death rate. With the coronavirus though they dont know enough about it to make accurate enough estimates so they just use confirmed cases instead. This is how they calculate the coronavirus death rate. The problem with that is there's way more people infected than are confirmed and once they do come out with estimates the death rate will go down considerably. For example ohio dosnt even have 100 confirmed cases but the health officials there estimate theres at least 100,000 people infected.

    And heres an article by a professor who estimates that theres anywhere from 50,000 to 500,000 people infected in the us. Theres just over 100 deaths so far so even if you use the low end of that estimate that still puts the death rate down to .2% https://www.google.com/amp/s/thehill...virus-in%3famp

    This will come to light the more we learn about the virus.
    We'll agree to disagree. You can say the same for the flu in regards to the numbers. I'm sure there's millions of people who get it every year that never go into the doctor to get tested for it. If you go to the clinic they won't test for it. They'll just give you a doctor's note stating "flu like symptoms" and refer you to a hospital that can test for it. In short, even if the true numbers for the mortality rate of the COVID-19 are 0.1 to 0.2%, I still best it's a lot higher than the flu because of the exact reasoning you described with the COVID-19 virus with people getting tested for it versus who actually has it.

    I wouldn't and im one of the few on here arguing against the coronavirus being no worse than the flu. Thing is the flu has killed about 25,000 people in the us this flu season. Thats more than 4000 people a month and 1000 people a week on average. The chances the coronavirus kills more than 100 people this week is pretty good.

    Actually, I may have to amend to under 300. At the time I posted that, the number was 151. I was still working with numbers of around 100.

    I still wouldn't take it. Numbers are definitely gonna increase more and more over the next few months. We'll see though.

    You know its bad when were betting on a virus because theres no sports. Lets hope this thing gets under control fast.

    A vaccine for COVID-19 will take several months to verify and mass produce. We just started trials.

    You just indirectly acknowledged what the point is. Even if we stipulate that COVID-19 has a similar death rate to the flu, if we try to deal with it without a vaccine and the shut downs and the social distancing measures that are being taken right now, we would end up seeing more deaths due to it than the flu because it will spread to more people since there is no vaccine.

    Earlier you mentioned that they shouldn't "shut the world down," but do you understand why such drastic measures are being taken in the absence of a vaccine and proven effective treatments for COVID-19.
