    Still a lot of unknowns... scientists are learning as things progress.

    There will be a lot of hindsight, indeed.

    Surprisingly, the human body does wonders to fight off diseases all the time.
    Yes, I’m aware that the elderly and already immune deficient are at higher risk, but they are at higher risk for everything all the time.
    My point is that the risks are always out there and this particular virus has been picked out as way more dangerous without any real facts to back that up that it’s more dangerous than existing/known about illnesses.

    i don’t see any numbers that would really suggest “millions” would die, but as I stated before, this is where all the hypothetical everything comes into play. It’s really a guessing game.

    its really not that hypothetical.

    current mortality rates:
    china: 4%
    italy: 8%
    iran: 6%
    spain: 4.5%
    uk: 2.81%
    france: 2.22%
    US: 1.68%

    there are also a number of countries that havent had as much of an outbreak and arent testing much that are under the 1% mark

    so for the sake of argument.. lets say 1% is the true amount.

    the US has 330million people (probably well over 350 by now)... so all it takes is 1/3 the US to get it to knock out 1 million people. if this thing can spread literally with no symptoms and as easily as by being in the same room as someone with it... i mean... its pretty clear this is a huge issue.

    What’s happens when ur Mayor don’t approve with the president? Our mayor came on tv last night and said California May take different precautions than the president??? President is aiming for Easter to reopen everything and our Mayor says that’s wat to soon and we should be in lockdown until this thing isn’t spreading. Said easily a few weeks or couple months, def not years. He said his job is to make sure the American ppl are safe, and that returning to work at this time is the complete opposite. So with him against the president, can he still lockdown Cali if the president reopened the states?

    Well the president hasn't locked down any states to this point and probably won't as the states are handling it themselves. Trump is just giving suggestions, it's really not up to him unless it gets REALLY out of hand one way or the other, even then states just wouldn't listen and would do what they believe to be best for them.

    He can... but I assume the federal government can "go after them" if they deem it necessary.

    However... in this case, those not siding with the President are probably in the right.

    This **** will just come roaring back if we go back out so soon.
