    Thatís about 415,944 people so about 5% of that figure is about 20000 people.

    20,000 deaths seems about right.

    Still statistically insignificant.
    Except for that .1% and their families.

    I want you to know that I can respect your service. Like you as a person. feel thankful to have learned from you. and never doubt your bravery!

    and still think you are a freaking dumb ass for not understanding that this virus is going to be a large sh!t sandwich and you just do not realize it yet because the first bite was all bread

    soon we are going to see people denied medical service because the equipment is not there

    people are going to be dying in hospital hallways.



    worse case will be doctors, nurses, hospital staff become sick at same time as peak or just before peak


    I Hope I am wrong!!!!

    While I haven't done the math in any particular state keep in mind that this virus sounds like the black plague of the 13th century which swept back every 6-15months to kill again,. We now have much better medical support but we also now have cars and air travel to spread it faster. And we don't have a really good cure.

    While not well documented it is generally estimated that the black plague of the 1300's killed 30% of Europe and Asia over 3-5 years. The flu of 1918 during WW-! killed roughly 50 million.
    I doubt Covid-19 will kill over 2 million worldwide (maybe 30,000 in the US) during the next 6 months but it still sux to have it. I've been out of work for a week being sick and it's also killing my investments.

    And if it mutates a tad like the common flu virus does each year some years it may become even more deadly or more contagious. To early to tell.

    @Maine-Marine

    This may give you some comfort -

    "Coronavirus data not matching extreme predictions"
    https://www.foxnews.com/politics/deb...me-predictions

    CoVid is still dangerous, and precautions should be taken, but it's comforting to me anyway that the US deaths will likely be in the tens of thousands - rather than the hundreds of thousands or millions.

    At present count, we have 85,500 positive cases and 1200 deaths.

    It appears things are already improving in Florida.

    Florida posts fourth straight day of flat COVID-19 case growth. Is the curve already bending? | The Capitolist
