    That still does not make my statement untrue...

    Apparently, The Nobel Peace prize has been turned into, a *Participation Award*

    Another first from the empty chair class....................

    its 0,0018 percent. 

    That's seems like a rather cold-blooded statistic to include. It still means tens of thousands of lives lost and that's tragic regardless of whatever proportion of the population it represents.

    alpenpirat:
    its 0,0018 percent. 

    And just as relevant is this number: 15%

    As in 15% of Americans personally know someone who has been hospitalized or died as a result of having COVID-19. The salient point: .0018 percent has a huge impact because 1 person's life (and death) does not simply affect that single individual. 

    Source for the 15% number is Pew Research at:

    https://www.pewresearch.org/pathways-2020/COVID_KNOWPATIENT/total_us_adults/us_adults

    In our household, as of last week, the relevant number was 12.

    That's the number of deaths of clients of the guardianship agency that my wife works for. The clients' friends and caregivers are extremely distraught.

    Economy versus Health .

    Tough Call .

    I can see both sides .

    If you have a friend , relative , neighbour etc with virus it is real .

    If you need wages , a job or bills to pay that is your focus .

    Funny part of this whole thing, is just about the same number of people, died last year from the n1h1 flu.........what's the difference today. No countries shut down then, and guess what, not one person has died from this flu, it's all been an underlying condition, complicated from the flu. Not one death certificate says cause of death, cornavirus. Go figure.

    There's no cure and no vaccine, including Clorox Chewables.

    No cure or vaccine for the cold, n1h1, cancer, etc. Govts are just proving a well known fact to you, we can control you by the use of fear. Wake up people.

    What should be in cold blood? In the case of complete hysteria, there is considerable juggling with numbers. But not with facts. Then it should be reported how many people die from the flu al year, and that is not a few.
