    • If you are going to catch anything, you usually catch it on a ship. That said.

      latimes.com/science/story/2020-03-22/coronavirus-outbreak-nobel-laureate

      The trajectory of deaths backs up his findings, he said, since it follows the same basic trends as the new confirmed cases. So do data from outbreaks in confined environments, such as the one on the Diamond Princess cruise ship. Out of 3,711 people on board, 712 were infected, and eight died.
      Cruise ships are incubators. Closed system.

      Still 3711 / 712 is a 19.2 % infection rate.

      3711 / 8 is a 0.2 % chance of death from being on the infected ship.

      712 / 8 is a 1.1 % death rate from being infected.

      Even if 100% of 3711 caught it, do some math. 0.011 x 3711 is 40.8 deaths out of a ship of 3711. And the real number was 8, not 40.8

      Current flu deaths are much higher.

      -------

      Our problem is this. Do we really want to destroy the entire US Economy over a 0.2% overall chance of death, or a 1.1 % chance of infection and death ???

      But he also blames the media for causing unnecessary panic by focusing on the relentless increase in the cumulative number of cases and spotlighting celebrities who contract the virus. By contrast, the flu has sickened 36 million Americans since September and killed an estimated 22,000, according to the CDC, but those deaths are largely unreported.

      Levitt fears the public health measures that have shut down large swaths of the economy could cause their own health catastrophe, as lost jobs lead to poverty and hopelessness. Time and again, researchers have seen that suicide rates go up when the economy spirals down.

      • A different news article. theguardian.com/world/2020/mar/23/trump-social-distancing-coronavirus-rules-guidelines-economy

        The shift in tone could foreshadow a clash between a White House alarmed by economic paralysis in an election year and public health experts urging caution. The US now has more than 39,000 confirmed cases of coronavirus and more than 400 deaths.
        Using the 1.1% from above...

        39000 x 0.011 is 429 estimated deaths.

          • Hey, I not sure you are going to believe me but...

            You knowwhat an orphan drug is? This is from the fda.gov website.

            The Orphan Drug Designation program provides orphan status to drugs and biologics which are defined as those intended for the treatment, prevention or diagnosis of a rare disease or condition, which is one that affects less than 200,000 persons in the US or meets cost recovery provisions of the act.Dec 20, 2018
            Let the Profiteering Begin!!!!

            Link #1: The Food and Drug Administration gave an experimental medicine called remdesivir to treat COVID-19 what's called orphan drug status on Monday.To qualify for an orphan designation, drug companies must show that their product will treat a population of fewer than 200,000 patients or that it would be unprofitable.


            Link #2: 'This Is a Massive Scandal': Trump FDA Grants Drug Company Exclusive Claim on Promising Coronavirus Drug. "It is insane and unacceptable," said Bernie Sanders. "We will not tolerate profiteering. Any treatment or vaccine must be made free for all."

                • Don't worry!

                  It will all be over by Easter!

                  The president said so and I trust him because he knows everything about everything. It just comes natural to him!

                  • The common cold is usually the rhinovirus, which is thought to be responsible for at least 50% of colds. Other viruses that can cause colds include coronavirus, respiratory syncytial virus, influenza and parainfluenza.

                    Corona-Virus. It spreads like the common cold and we have zero herd immunity. So, everyone is going to get it eventually.

                    The overall death rate for those infected is 1.1%. So, 11,100 tested positive should add about 122 to the death rate.

                    However, the majority of those deaths will be in the over 60 population. For some reason, Congress is acting like this thing is personally coming after them.

                        Well.. they kinda should I would think?

                        By far the majority of them are in the "at risk" category because they are a bunch of old idiots who we got to watch as they grew old in their jobs due to their refusal of term limits.

                        So now they are facing an illness that -is- literally out to get them, for which we have no cure and which is likely to kill them if they end up infected.

                        Now, I obviously don't wish that situation on anyone so yeah... I believe that they -should- be scared.

                        But you know... even considering all this I bet that not a single one of them realizes the irony that this exact situation is effectively the same one that they are more than happy to place millions of Americans in whenever they talk about reforming health care.

                        • We need a safety net. A fallback system that covers basic health care for everyone.

                          Now, that does not mean that we have to make the current system illegal. It could co-exist. Funny that everyone thinks that offering the public a monthly self pay medicare option will put every private insurance company in the US out of business. That would not even be universal coverage since not everyone has that extra money, but it would be a start.

                          What is wrong with allowing people to purchase medicare coverage or a basic universal coverage, where you can still purchase additional private insurance? For example. Basic coverage would put you in a hospital ward with many other patients. You can buy extra private coverage that would put you in a semi private room (2 people) or a private room (1 person).

                          Every day, people in America are skipping their medicine. If you don't have good insurance, you probably can not afford most prescriptions.

                          This is really bad when you are a diabetic. Diabetics can die from trying to ration or skip insulin.

                          People put off going to a doctor since the average office visit is over $100 now. If you do have a problem, the doctor wants to follow up with you. That is several more over $100 visits. Things that are early stage and could be fixed, grow worse.

                          Eventually the person ends up in an expensive ER diabetic crises admit, which is followed by a hospital stay, then managing an expensive, advanced chronic condition. If we could have got to that person years earlier and convinced them to make lifestyle changes, they could still be a healthy, well managed diabetic, and still in the early stages of diabetes.

                          Source: hrbsolutionsinc.com/how-much-does-a-doctor-visit-cost/

                          Refer to our table below to see what you may have to pay for a doctor’s office visit without any insurance:
                          Routine Adult Checkup $200 to $300
                          Female Exam (younger than 40) $200 to $300
                          Female Exam (older than 40) $275 to $400
                          Child Exam (newborn to 24 months) $150 to $200
                          Child Exam (24 months to 16 years) $150 to $250
                          Adult office visit for illness $150 to $250
                          Child visit for illness $150 to $250
                          Adult emergency room visit for illness $550 to $800
                          Child emergency visit for illness $500 to $750

                                And to really show how hardcore he is he first goes to the senate swimming pool and gym.

                                Now... before anyone wonders why the senate has a swimming pool and gym... do you think our representatives look that amazing naturally?

                                No no.. Trump is the only one for whom good looks come naturally (just like everything else).

                                The rest of them have to work for it!
