I'm 60 and have some health issues and work when I choose; fortunately I own my home and live by myself, I'm making plans to basically become a shut in once it starts showing up in numbers and stop going out.

Wash hands

So the other thread that was made regarding it wasn't to your liking?

 

It's not Virus in China.  Now the virus is in the United States.  Because the State Dept flew it back.  The xenophobic focus on China is a waste of time.

Not the only ones....

Funny that having China in the title didn't stop anyone else from talking about it making it's way to the US. And it's funny that you're so anal about what country is in the title yet you dumb coronavirus down to just "virus". 

 

Nice duplicate thread. 

 

I'm surprised you care about coronavirus.  Only 2 out of every 100 who get it die.  That's way less than smoking.

This highly contagious virus has been killing about 3 to 4 % of all those infected and has spread into the US, and all anyone can talk about is politics and pointing the blame on politicians in the opposing party.

 

Yes, we are fucked.

 

Nashville has a population of about 700,000 people.  Even if everyone were not infected you could still be looking at something like 5,000 to 10,000 people dying from this virus.

 

Perspective, people.

The risk to the global economy and the US economy is real.  Business can't function normally with huge quarantines, restricted travel and supply chains disrupted.  Until the medical issue is resolved, we don't know where the bottom is for the economy.

CDC has done < 500 tests.  This is much closer to the Iran response level.

 

Part of the problem was the testing was inefficient because no one other than the CDC was equipped to test.  Medical providers were having to send samples to the CDC in Atlanta and wait a few days for results.

 

The CDC recently sent test kits to various cities so to enable local testing with faster results.

Jfc you suck at math. The mortality rate is 2% and it's likely much lower since there are a ton of undocumented cases.

You're assuming that I had intended to assume that every person was infected.

 

I am taking into account that NOT everyone is infected (and I assumed even if only half the people were infected, the number of deaths would still be sobering).  But right now we do not know the average percentage of people that get infected with the virus.

 

If it were the case that every person in Nashville were infected, then you would be talking about approximately 25K people dead.

 

I should have been clearer.  I edited the post to clarify what I had meant.

 

I was just trying to put together some numbers to give an idea of what we might be up against.  3 to 4 percent mortality rate is fucking huge.

 

I mean imagine you work at a decent size company and you have 1000 co-workers.  If everyone got sick, that would mean 30 - 40 of your co-workers would die.  Yikes.
