    This thing will end up likely killing 75 to 100k people in the US even with all the lockdowns and extreme suppression measures being undertaken. Imagine if we had kept business as usual with now isolation or distancing. Would have been easily the worst pandemic since 1918. We are bending the curve even though it is painful.

Hell, big F for the people that moved in with the significant other during the pandemic and are realizing that they shouldnít have done that lol.

    Honestly, all of those things worry me more than the virus itself. Iím not saying open up the country and let everything go back to normal but ****, once this whole thing is over, suicide rates, domestic violence, and mental illness rates are definitely going to skyrocket.
    I work with a few older black ladies and itís sad how many of them say that they leave it in gods hands. I want to slap them so they can understand thatís not how things work. One ladyís mother already passed away because of it and she has it her self and she is like 60 years old.

    it would have been in the millions had we kept everything open and said to hell with it and that might seem like an extreme number but our medical system would have imploded and so many more would have died and what will likely be 100k deaths would have been over a million because the virus would have spread so fast and decimated everything.... but yo its no big deal

    That seems optimistic. The models apparently say 100-220K if we do things perfectly which obviously weíre not doing.

    Divorce rates in China went way up as soon as they were let out.

    But I donít agree with you about the after this is over part. I think those things you mentioned are already happening. Unless you mean that they wonít get reported until after.

    I agree these things are already happening. I probably couldíve been more clear, I think that these things are all happening as we speak and I think theyíre being reported, I just donít think weíll understand the severity of the issue until coronavirus is over. Right now, everybody is enamored with COVID related statistics, leaving other things sort of buried that would otherwise make the news in a regular time.

    Point is, Iím taking all stats with a grain of salt until a vaccine is distributed to everyone. Suicides for instance are going up/going to go up but weíre not going to address a lot of these issues/notice the reporting until people are finally able to leave their homes.

    I canít speak for everybody but I donít know many people in my age range that have that attitude nonetheless believe in divine intervention. I think itís just an older generational thing, itís a way to cope/rationalize the fact/idea that things are out of their control.
