    No one knows the death rate of the virus nor any way to know, since the overwhelming number of people who are infected will never know it nor ever be tested. This is calculated to assure maximizing the panic.

    Of course they will.

    It will all be available in history books and the internet.

    He'll be the expert who tried to help to the best of his ability. Trump, on the other hand, will be the man-child president willing to risk millions of lives for the sake of the economy, though more out of fear of not being reelected than the financial well being of Americans. But don't worry, you'll also be remembered, as one of his most loyal supporters, who denied science to the very end, even with illness and death knocking on your doors.

    Republicans' loathing of expertise is why we're all in this **** barrel to begin with, but whatever.

    On a side note, check out the slopes of those curves... USA is doing the worst of all on flattening the curve.

    To be fair, the USA is several weeks behind these other countries...

    To be rational, that chart is worthless.

    Without knowing how many people have been infected, there is no manner to know how many have and no way to calculate any death rate. Without the necessary statistics, any claimed calculation can reach any conclusion anyone wants to. The only meaningful number is how many known covid-19 deaths there has been as a percentage of the total population. Any other number is meaningless.

    Won't we still be on national lock down a year from now? They said a vaccination won't be available for 18 months. Do you want people to die? (It seems some progressives do).

    NASA is watching for asteroids and there are none that are a threat. Covid 19 is already here and it is deadly.

    That's why he is the expert and you are not. Virus's are not new and this one is quite similar to many others that he has studied.

    Do you shut down an entire country, spend trillions and lose trillions more, cause a national panic and all the real, dangerous and mental health issues, along possibly permanent negative effects on society, on a maybe 100,000 to 200,000?

    Really?

    Really- Hospitals in NY and other places desperate for masks, ventilators and on and on

    Rural US- Medical care sucks- C19 would run rampant thru these areas with a higher death rate per case
