    And tell people how stupid the media is about COVID. We all could use a little less hysteria around here.

    As an aside, what happens to the 2-3% mortality rate when the whole population is tested? Math happens and the mortality rate drops below 1%...perhaps even .05%.

    Am I wrong? Or are the experts (CDC / Who / MSM) pretending to fail when they push the 2-3% mortality rate? Could this possibly be political?

    I think anybody who's following this seriously understands that the mortality rate, as it stands now, is based on very incomplete data, i.e. the most serious cases. That's pretty much par for the course for any emergent pathogen. As this plays out, the true R0 will likely be quite a bit higher than current estimates, and the true mortality rate will probably be quite a bit lower. Same thing happened with SARS. Not to mention that there's a really good chance that, given enough transmissions, the virus will mutate to be less deadly (although there's some evidence from Asia that this can also lead to reinfection with this particular bug).

    Mild or asymptomatic cases are a known unknown here. You still calculate R0 and mortality based on known numbers, though.

    The head of the CDC agrees with you.

    COVID-19 Mortality Rate May Be 'Considerably Less Than 1%'

    Did Trump Fire the US Pandemic Response Team?

    Look, the current administration pushed out or at the very least allowed the pandemic team to quit did not replace them.

    Trump even admitted it and said, it'd be easy to just "hire them back."

    Look into the anal swabbings that led to this conclusion, then decide if the evidence is believable.

    On one hand we're being told not to panic buy and hoard. And on the other hand here's what the New York Times just printed "Prepare your family, and communicate your plan about evacuations, resources and supplies. Experts suggest stocking at least a 30-day supply of any needed prescriptions. Consider doing the same for food staples, laundry detergent and diapers, if you have small children." If you haven't already planned for the inconveniences that can sometimes come, then the only way to quickly build a 30 day supply is to buy a lot all at once, which sounds a lot like panic buying. Of course, if you've used common sense, then you already have a well stocked pantry.

Today, the world's population is more than 4x that of 1918. So, if 1/3rd of teh world's population gets infected, then a .05% mortality rate is still pretty, pretty, pretty bad.

    That would mean it would kill about a million or so people worldwide this year. Thatís close to the same number of people killed this year by tuberculosis. Iím not saying that isnít bad, but whenís the last time you saw a news story about tuberculosis?
