I posted in March before the antibody test came out. The mortality rate is very age dependent. The younger you are the lower it is. I don't think anyone under 10 has died.No, because based on 3,000 tests for antibodies in NY suggests that total cases are around 2.7 million than the 250,000 current cases. I seriously doubt South Korea have done antibody tests on millions over there.
Are we supposed to test all 350 million people in this country? I can really see that working out well.
The point is that actual mortality rate is closer to that of 0.2%, however, the media shows so many bad cases, and only reports them, in the mind of an anxious person means a terrible Black Plague. Really, the media is responsible for much of the hysteria over all of this.
