    But it is hypothetical because you’re already starting with a piece that doesn’t happen with any of the other diseases that we coexist with all the time.
    This disease infecting 1/3 of the country far surpasses every other disease by leaps and bounds which in its entirety makes this hypothetical. You say “only 1/3” like any other sickness has ever reached that kind of number.

    on a global scale, millions is definitely possible just by comparison of the already existing illnesses that do the same, didn’t look into how many people die globally from from everything else but I still haven’t seen any numbers to truly back up that this is in fact a worse illness than many of the other existing viruses (as far as contraction/death vice the actual virus symptoms. I know this is worse than the flu going by effects)
    1 piece still being looked into, certainly not confirmed, is the rate of spreading because of the limited knowledge on how it’s spreading. There are so many other variables in play with that including the fact they only “discovered” how it was being spread like 3 weeks ago(?). I know the first concern and assumption was it was airborne, (lot of conflicting stories and such) but I recall reading the CDC confirmed it is NOT airborne but through droplets.

    for the unfortunate less developed countries, this is the same story different disease. I agree with global travel limitations.
    I even agree with temporary limitations domestically as they continue research, but with the current numbers, I see the domestic side as overly cautious which has certainly effected other things (economy/daily living) to a likely higher concern than the possible spreading of this.

    That sucks. If he’s waiting for this to entirely stop spreading, CA will be on lockdown forever.

    It really is still a guessing game. Statistically, to make your best educated guess on mortality rate, you’d want to look at who has tested the largest portion of their population. That right now is South Korea who is right around 1% mortality. Safely assuming they have not tested everyone who was infected, 1% may be the high end of the scale. Obviously there are plenty of factors that can influence the mortality rate, but statistically speaking, South Korea should be the most accurate given the percentage of their population that has been tested.
