    Antibody Testing: Proves We've Been Had!

    https://www.medpagetoday.com/infectiousdisease/covid19/85925

    What do we know about the risk of dying from COVID-19?

    Fact of the matter is, we have been given inaccurate information. The death rate of this disease is very low, and many deaths recorded as Corona deaths, were not verified. Just because someone had Rona, does not mean they died because of it. If you are old or have previous illnesses that Rona can take advantage of, stay home! Quarantine yourselves, and us healthy individuals will keep grinding.

    I guess there’s room for debate among the ICs or was there a different community you were referring to.
    Report: Majority of US intelligence agencies believe COVID-19 originated in Wuhan lab

    So?

    Everyone else is opening up now. You think maybe that will spread cases too?

    Yep, but if proper precautions are taken, not as much.

    The beaches in Florida remaining open like they were was borderline retarded.

    Only if a crime has been committed. Otherwise the onus is on a plaintiff (not the government) to bring a civil suit against someone they claim has damaged them in some way.

    that’s nothing like this mandated stay at home has ever occurred except in times of war. It’s a very dangerous and slippery slope (IMO) to initiate a precedent whereby the government very definitely restricts the first amendment rights of some under the rationalization that it is “protecting” others with debatable results.

    the denominator of incidence will go way up When antibody testing becomes widely available. It WILL reveal a more accurate mortality which will be lower than currently reported. Most likely still a bit higher than flu, but not nearly to the degree as reported what is true is that segments of our population do indeed have mortality rates from the disease. And that is going to generate a lot of sticky discussion on how to shape future public policy.

    If you as an individual follow the precautions, you’ll be fine. If you insist your loved ones follow the precautions, they’ll be fine. So why worry about others who get infected if they don’t? They either get better or those ignoramuses die and get what they deserve.

    DON’T buy into all this fear mongering. You’re getting played.

    As of yesterday, reports of death are 90% over 70 years of age, and most of those had pre existing illness. Used to be we quarantined the sick, not the healthy. Antibody testing will indeed prove that this disease isn't nearly as fatal as current numbers. Yes, it is deadly, and certainly more so than the flu. I certainly agree with that. However, having our Government drunk on power is not the correct answer. Not allowing citizens to be in a boat in their own back yard, or unable to buy seeds. These cases will be won in the courts. How is Chic Filet considered essential when others are not. It's OK to rub elbows in Walmart, and have the Corona positive Arby's employee hand out thousands of bags to customers. There is no say on how these things were determined. On the whim of a Governor is not good enough.
