    The fact is your dead for one reason or another. At that point what difference does it make why. Wasting resources for 6 months maybe a year isn't the wisest decision, IMHO. I don't plan on eating oat meal, chitting my diaper while staring at the ceiling waiting.

    Many more times that get the flu . People get sick it happens. Yes we need to take it serious but we also need to keep it in focus. Doing what is reasonable to avoid it . But if it comes it does .
    We have those in power saying million in US will die. I think they are full of crap.

    worse case if we did nothing and it ran its course quickly and overwhelmed the hospital system... at a .1% death rate we would see 23,000,000 deaths...lets say only 25% of americans caught it - that is still 5.9M deaths


    1 day our deaths grew by 100 US coronavirus death toll grew by more than 100 on Monday as governors instituted even more rules

    Not necessarily taking a position one way or the other.. but there is some date out of Italy that is enlightening regarding the virus. My wife, on a global medical forum showed me the data and I’ll try and post a link later. But to summarize, 99% of all virus deaths had underlining (comorbidity) conditions. Fully 50% had 3 or more conditions. The number of deaths with no underlying conditions was .08.

    I don’t think age was a factor in the study but usually those with underlying conditions are “older”.

    So this would suggest taking care of the people with the underlying conditions regardless of age. It would also suggest that if you keep yourself healthy in general you have a better chance of survival should you contract the virus.

    Updated with link.

    .08 x #of infected = a boat load

    You’re mixing your numbers. .08 is the number of deaths with no underlying conditions not those infected. 3.4 ish is still the overall mortality rate and you’d need to apply the .08 to the number of deaths (3.4 rate).

    .08 is not applied to the number of infected.

    No just a reality. Hey liberals never saw a baby they were not ok with killing. They send million helping do it. They just toss them in the trash.
    My dad had cancer big time his entire body was being eat up. A strong man he could not get out of a chair. Doctors were clear he would die in less than 6 months. He had instruction to let him go. They brought him back when his heart shut down. Added many $1,000 in cost . He died a week latter. I have made my wish known when the time comes let me go. I have had a great run.
