absolutely. Anyone saying it's below 1% is watching choreographed "news" or any opinions / quacks - anything that support their argument to get back the economy back while purposely avoiding all facts that point to the opposite. Like virtually everything in the US, people are divided on political lines. Science and facts are secondary considerations at best. You don't think nurses, doctors, EMTs, etc know the symptoms by now? Saying they're raising the death count just to get funding is ridiculous. Another conspiracy theory based in zero evidence. When was the last time you heard story after story of bodies stacked up in trucks, warehouses, anywhere they can store them. Never in my lifetime. Let's just turn a blind eye to that and pretend it's not happening. Somehow everyone that thinks this way finds and reports anything suggesting the denominator is higher, but quickly discard any evidence that says the numerator is higher. Why? To support their narrative of a low mortality rate so they can justify their belief that this is all blown out of proportion and get everyone back to work and the economy going. Probably because they're holding stocks and worried about their 401k, which I understand..but zero idea how highly contagious DEADLY diseases work. It's like people want to live in an echo chamber / bubble where everyone believes the same thing they do. Log into i_am_right.com and find anything to support their opinions. I'm just looking at the facts and stats. And the stats say a much higher death rate than 1%. You do know the common flu is 0.05% right? That's 1/20th of 1%. We've already passed the death count for the entire 2017/2018 flu season, the worse in modern history - which includes all flu strains - in just over a month. How in the hell is any of this like the common flu?
