It’s simple, you can stay home and have everything delivered to you or you can decide to roll the dice with a 0.2-0.3% death rate. Everyone knows what it is so if they want to take a chance then why does anyone else care? If you don’t want to take a chance then stay home. 
The reality is people that are scared don’t want to stay home so they want to pretend they can control the virus by telling others how to live. You can say but I have to go to work or I have to go to the store, blah, blah. No you don’t. Those are choices.

They're mandated to wear masks and they are screened for covid.

 

hundreds of thousands of ANTIFABLM  protesters are not.

Mindblowing, that there are still people arguing, that this is nothing and only political.

and keep in mind: These numbers are EVEN THOUGH the entire country focuses on it 100%. 

Nobody gives a SHIT about the regular flu, and yet covid killed twice as much with all the distancing, lockdowns, hand washing, etc..

 

If covid actually had been handled the way we handle the seasonal flu, the numbers would be WAY worse. Even it it seems impossible that they could be worse...

Damn SpunQ is quick to spam this thread. Holy moly.

First claiming the numbers are bullshit, then shifting ths blame (for bullshit numbers or the real dead people cause of the rona?) to China. Then stating that the media did miniscule the threat (with bullshit numbers anyways) and continuing in full blown conspiracy theories.

It's basically hedging the blame anyone and evryone else instead of Trump. It's so obvious it's not even funny anymore.

Which are not being used on a global scale. Most of us just don't give a shit about the flu.

Yes, it's helpful to put things in context. 

The US has a mortaility death rate of about 8.8%.  

That means every year about 29 million people die in the US. 

137,000 is just less than 0.5% of that number.  

That means if the number of COVID deaths double, the total number of people that die will be increased by about 1%.

Those covid deaths are for four months. 

Cardiovascular disease kill approx. 647,000 per year.

So in the same amount of time that would be 215,000.

So it's about 60% deaths compared to Cardiovascular diseases. But highly contagious.
