The numbers just don’t add up as to why we have destroyed our economy and essentially shut down.
You can look up actual WORLDWIDE cases here, sorted by country. Cases/deaths/recovered. This is Johns Hopkins data, so I would expect it to be pretty reliable.
(as of 18:30 local time here in the Midwest) there have been WORLDWIDE:
375,458 CASES. IE tested for and found to have the virus. (Probably more that were asymptomatic and did not bother to get tested though). Please note that the world population is approximately 7,690.000.
16, 371 deaths. Please note that the “normal” flu killed more people this year just here in the US than the CoronaVirus has killed worldwide.
100,958 have recovered.
Notice how low these numbers really are?
And for this we have essentially shut down the WORLD economies?
One wonders what, exactly is going on here. (unless these governments know something about this illness that they aren’t sharing, this is a massive overreaction)
Go, READ this article. It is longer than 20 sentences, but it is worth reading and no skipping.
