There lies the problem with opening things up too soon with idiots like that, while active cases are still on the rise.



With a 99.9% survival rate it doesn’t exist.
For ANY practical purpose.

Your percentage is a little off.
At the present time the survival rate in the US is 94%

With 6 people dead out of every 100 people infected, I wouldn't call that non existent.

The death rate is not nearly 6% because they have no idea how many people are infected. The only way to know that is to do sample testing. When they have done that the infection rate appears to be much higher so the death rate is much lower, probably less than 1%. Stop me if I'm going too fast for you.

Furthermore, the death rate among healthy people is much, much lower. Healthy people meaning those who have taken good care of they bodies with a good diet, plenty of exercise, and healthy habits like not smoking. Therein lies the problem: idiots who haven't taken care of their health. I have little sympathy for them.

I will type this slowly for your benefit, funny guy.

OK, let me word this another way. Six percent of the confirmed cases.

Confirmed cases: 1,343.937
Fatalities: 79,696

1,343,937 X 6% = 80,636

Well there is your problem.

To know the real number you have to take the number of people in the US and divided that number of people that died. That will give you the real number in % chance of dying in the US at this time. That number is now "at this time" is "about" .000243% of a chance of dying if you live in the US.

Now that is taking the US as a whole mean average. If you live in NYC your chances are higher than if you live in lets say Blue Eye Mo. And visa versa.

Not to mention the inflated deaths. The numbers are misleading because a lot of the deaths aren’t actually from Corona.

How do you know about the "inflated deaths"? I don't even know what an inflated death is and I doubt that any contributor on a RV forum has the expertise and information to give an exact cause of death for Aunt Ethel.

The death rate among "YOUNG" people is much much lower.

Not sure our parents and grandparents who are dying a very unpleasant death from the virus like being called "idiots". Name calling is easy and extremely popular these days.
