This is pure speculation but I have a feeling it will end up being less than 0.5%.

Agreed. I doubt we will ever get the correct numbers since they are miscounting from the get go. However, I believe the death rate will be about the same as the flu.

I read that the survival rate was about 98.524% Which would make the mortality rate of about 1.5%. And that doesnt even take into account all the people that have had the virus but were asymptomatic.

It is a real shame the statistics are being politicized. It would be very helpful if we were provided with the unvarnished truth.

Thanks for that Michael. I still ain't buying what I've heard a lot of people saying that they had it back in Dec or Jan, before it was imported into this country. But that said, this thing is an overblown media thing, IMHO. I still don't want it, at my age, but I'll be responsible for myself, not be told what to do by some jackwad politition govenor, that don't know S from Shineola!

Lee, your last 6 words prompted my curiosity to ask, How old are you. My Dad is 86 and uses that phrase quite often. smile

The lower the better obviously because of what it does.With all the social distancing and other restrictions that have so far keep it much lower than otherwise, the virulence of covid will likely push it higher than any normal flu running thru the non restricted society.

Lee, you might be surprised. I know of an individual, and his family, who travelled from Wuhan, where he works, to Kansas sometime around the first of December. I think the infection was already rampaging in that area before he left.

I had something with all the symptoms for about a week and a half in Feb. I wish there was an antibody test.

I have been working a few days a week in and around KC. Hospitals there dont have full parking lots. Seem to be plenty of people moving around. LOTS of construction jobs going on. Boco, with all those people working, and most are, if this virus was half as virulent as we are being led to believe, the hospitals would be full.

Danny,the people working are going through rigorous precautions to sterilize.Here,even going to the grocery store is like major hazmat protocol.My son and daughter are both still working and the changes in their routine to prevent infectious spread is almost biblical in nature.
There is absolutely no debate on the virulence of covid-just look at its footprint across the globe.

You think guys on construction sites are going through rigorous precautions to sterilize?

I got a tire fixed Wednesday. Tire shop had me sit in the truck till they were done. Then I walked up to the counter to pay. Told me they would would take my card if I wanted to sit in the truck . I used their bathroom before I left. When I got back in the truck I did use hand sanitizer. With those few exceptions everything seems to be going like usual.

I hardly think that the homeless and prisoners are "sterilizing" and they're not dropping like flies.


I wonder if tap dancers walk into a room, look at the floor, and think, I'd tap that. I wonder about things.....

Yes indeed,in fact some were shut down for not following covid protocol.They are monitored for compliance.

I doubt that's happening anywhere. I've been on one construction site after another in the last three weeks, and all are business as usual. The only difference is I don't shake hands with the contractors anymore, and we try to keep our distance. Sometimes pretty hard to do when you're talking over loud equipment and such.

No one is monitored for compliance. It is not happening.
