    Re: Expect a Million Deaths

    It is difficult to understand how this is a national crisis when the media spends 95% of its time on the New York metro area, which includes parts of New Jersey. Occasionally, the media spends a little time on New Orleans and Detroit. The death rate in the rest of the country among the elderly with underlying health issues is normal.

    The New York metro area includes a major part of New Jersey. Today, New York and New Jersey had 547 deaths. the other 48 states had a total of 483 deaths involving mostly the elderly with underlying health issues.

    Are the elderly in nursing homes and hospitals and the homeless who were already sick before becoming infected by Covid-19 dying of lung disease, pneumonia, heart disease, influenza, etc. or are they dying because of Covid-19?

    The evidence points to the former.

    It is possibly, already leveling off.

    I don't remember my original estimation of the peak of date, but I think we are close.

    Yes, in the New York metro area. The New York metro area includes a major part of New Jersey. Today, New York and New Jersey had 547 deaths. the other 48 states had a total of 483 deaths involving mostly the elderly with underlying health issues.

    The number of cases does not matter because the CDC is tracking the number of people who have come down with the common cold since the beginning of the year.

    The number of deaths is the true measure of the casualties of a virus. That, too, is a running total. 8,434 sick Americans have died in three months.

    That number is not alarming.

    People who with a flu only, may have died in their retirement homes, but not counted into a pandemic.

    Yes, I know. You have nothing to contribute to threads. I'm surprised you admit it though.

    Thank-you for your concession.

    One trick now I practice is ditching my clothes the minute I walk through the door and taking a shower. Shoes come off at the door no matter what. Jacket gets hung up in the mud room, clothes go into a garbage bag for washing later--which I now do myself--etc.
    I do the same. I also limit my time out to the supermarket and pharmacy first thing in the morning to every 2 weeks and shower and wash my hair when I return home. I steam clean my jackets after i return home. My father -in law- lives with us and protecting him is my first priority. Stay safe.
