    Coronavirus Reality Check.

    As of 7:18 PM Eastern time tonight, March 25, there were 65,564 Coronavirus cases in the US, and 929 deaths.
    According to my calculator, that works out to a 0.014% chance of dying from this, IF YOU EVEN GET IT.

    Yet, the media has everyone whipped up into a hysterical frenzy.
    State and local governments are ordering lockdowns. Businesses are closed, people are out of work.
    And, straight out of The Twilight Zone, some Democrat mayors are releasing criminals into the streets.

    This is absolutely, totally, asinine and absurd.

    I have better things to do than waste time worrying about this made up "pandemic".
    And I'm glad both of my parents are dead so they can't see how sissified their country has become.

    This is what some of us having been trying to say. Yes it is a concern, yes we need to deal with it . It is not what they are trying to make it out to be. Also most if not all that die from it have condition that weaken them.

    Did you look at the chance of dieing in Italy or Spain. I ran the numbers Italy was 10% and Spain was 7%. Do you trust your governments numbers?

    Both those countries are filthy places compared to US and healthcare not as great as they claim .

    In both of those countries the health care system is overwhelmed. If we allow our system to become overwhelmed, we will be experiencing much higher mortality rates.

    I very much suspect that there are people on the "dead" list that did not die because of the coronavirus. Just a feeling.

    A couple of points to ponder;

    Yes, Ol' @rice paddy daddy is correct.

    Spain and Italy are full of socialists idiots. Lazy, corrupt liars socialist in nature and they filtrate both their government and their citizenry. Look deep into the news and you'll find that the Italians over stated the number of Chicom Flu cases as well as deaths. Don't know if Spain did the same thing, will check into it.

    OK, to give some perspective...
    you can not calculate mortality rate based on numbers they way you are doing them. More people are getting the disease then recovering... those 65,564 case you mention - some are day 1 other are day 5 some day 14... we do not know how many of the current case will die..

    the morbidity rate for this virus is HIGH... it is very very infectious. The mortality rate varies.. but it sure is not .014%....

    the way you are trying to do the math is wrong... you can not take the current case and KNOW the rate.. why, because some of them are on day 1 others day 5. You can only KNOW the rate if you know the dead versus recovered...

    If you expose 100 people to extreme level of radiation and 1 dies day one.. you should not assume the death rate is 1%...

    I do not advocate worry.. I do advocate for reality... this virus is going to be a game changer for our economy and unless we can hold off the peak until we are ready... this is kill a lot of people...mostly older people

    this is no made up pandemic my friend - this is flu on steroids with a arsenic kicker

    Here's a site that will help put things in perspective.

    Overall, deadlier than the flu. More contagious than the flu.

    Here's a reality check; a cavalier attitude can get you infected. Even if you have no symptoms at all, you can pass it to others. They or those they unwittingly infect might die. You probably won't ever know that you killed others and that'll allow you to continue being nonchalant about it. What if there were some way to confront you with the deaths, though? How would you feel, then?
