    Now they won't lower the numbers to where they need to be. Most people around the world are noticing irregularities to this so-called virus, that they are now calling a bacterial infection.

    It seems like they don't know what to call it when questioned why it is not behaving like other viruses which share the same traits and ways of replication. Under a microscope many doctors are calling it a bacteria and not a virus.

    It has a 99.98 survivability. The flu kills between 3-4 % yearly. I am sure even you can see the point being made here. If you like fear mongering based on lies, then that is your problem. You sound like Pelosi who was mad there are 50,000 dead in the US compared to the predicted 1-2 million (Can never happen) for the 3 month time frame given by that fake doctor.

    You know this already and has been proven, the normal flu death rate is still higher than this so-called Chinese Flu. If you don't believe me, you better check the CDC numbers. The CDC revised these numbers 3 times because everyone keeps asking them why their numbers were wrong.

    -Edit-

    Also many are noticing that if you take the Chinese Flu deaths and add them to the Flu deaths, they are surprisingly close to the previous years real Flu deaths. Anyone with a brain can see they hyped a fake virus and just relabeled 1 quarter of the real Flu deaths as the Chinese Flu.
    You're a ******* ******

    We've managed to be really under the curve, so now it's about gradual economic recovery. I expect that we'll get spikes in the next few weeks, but it's just about making sure that it's at a level that our hospitals can handle. At most I expect that we might have delays to our easing restriction plans as opposed to actually going backwards and having to reinstate any restrictions that have relaxed.

    Long term immunity would be tricky since SARS-COV1 hasn't even gotten a vaccine yet after 5+ years. That said, that virus never had the same drive to develop a vaccine like this one.

    USA has bigger fish to fry but.

    There're apparently many huge efforts to develop Covid-19 vaccines all over the world. I've no idea if anyone seriously bothered to try with the old SARS in the first place.

    If I recall correctly, SARS initial trials on mice found the particular issue where the one implementation resulted in occasionally worse symptoms, and then SARS was largely eradicated in 2004, so all the funding dried up and vaccine development was abandoned.

    Either way, you will probably not understand this, but a 3-4% deathtoll of such an infectious virus in any modern country would be devastating to the economy.
    Not to mention that the sheer amount of patients itself is/would already cripple everything.

    "just a flu" - he says.

    alongside other factors that are quite dangerous, such as incubation time - 1-2 days (normal flu) vs 1-2 weeks (corona)
    the lack of immunities.
    the lack of medication
    calling it "just a flu" is simply not true.

    The following was a facebook post by an intensivist in our country whom I had the pleasure of learning from as a medical student. Great guy. He puts this really well:

    Coronavirus isn’t just like the flu, but it’s only really very dangerous to the elderly or the already unwell. Quite a lot of people in their 80s will die, but most of the rest of us will probably be okay.

    If you’re in your 70s and you get Coronavirus, you’ve got a really good chance of survival. If I’ve got a bed for you.

    If you’re in your 60s and you have a heart attack, you’ve got a really good chance of survival. If I’ve got a bed for you.

    If you’re in your 50s and need bowel cancer surgery, you’ve got a really good chance of survival. If I’ve got a bed for you.

    If you’re in your 40s and have a bad car accident, you’ve got a really good chance of survival. If I’ve got a bed for you.

    If you’re in your 30s and have terrible pre-eclampsia as a complication of pregnancy, you’ve got a really good chance of survival. If I’ve got a bed for you.

    If you’re in your 20s and have a bad reaction to a party drug, you’ve got a really good chance of survival. If I’ve got a bed for you.

    I have 7 beds equipped with life support machines. We have a plan to increase to about 25. Getting more isn’t a matter or more equipment or more money, that bit is easy. There are not enough skilled staff, even if we all work double shifts every day for six months (and we probably will).

    If 50% of my city gets infected, that’s 75,000 people. If 5% of them need life support (which is the estimate), that’s 3750 people. For 25 beds.

    And then I might not have a bed for you.

    So it’s up to you to flatten the curve. Wash your hands. Stay home.
