The same argument can be said about the seasonal flu - it kills thousands per year.

But, it also doesnít kill 3 or 4 out of every 100 it infects, it has a far less infection rate, and we have a yearly vaccination that works quite well with many people taking part in getting vaccinated each year.

This virus has no preventative medicine yet. No one has any natural resistance to it. The disease it causes -covid19- is far more serious both in symptoms and the percentage of deaths per infected rate.

And itís much easier to pass on to more people.

Thatís why so many people are getting seriously ill, so quickly.

The statistics show that if you get it, and it gets bad enough to cause you to go on a respirator - you are basically finished.

I have had the seasonal flu before twice. I stayed in bed For several days and neither my wife nor my kids caught it from me. If you do get covid-19, there is a very high chance you will infect several others around you. Some are infecting many many people if they are not symptomatic and still go out to work/social things etc.

Every day things are getting worse right now... something to think about. How things will be in April, May or June leaves to be seen.

I do not believe this is true. For people weak and immune challenged perhaps.
