    The Hopkins link (only one I clicked due to other either being fake news or not reliable sources) admit the death rate is a severe flu season at worst. Even stipulating the deaths from Covid 19 rate is accurate (a much disputed topic) they say it's 673k deaths worldwide through today.

    They quote WHO flu estimates at 290-650k annually worldwide. This is a drastic underestimate considering 61k died of the flu just in the US alone 2 years ago. That number would translate to 1.4 million worldwide if the flu affected everywhere the same (it doesn't but America doesn't also somehow have twice the death rate of the flu than everywhere besides the US). Even if you trust the 650k number whatever we end up with this year will be less than a million ie a bad flu.

    I didn't mean to say it was the same virus as the flu. It's bad for old people and fatties and unhealthy people which is probably why it doesn't affect Africa much (there aren't many fatties or unhealthy people still alive there). All I argue is that it's not worth the enormous negative consequences we're imposing on ourselves, almost entirely because cheeto Benito has got to go!

    I have compassion as I live in a hot spot. I've known on a personal level 8 people who have had it, and countless more people I've heard of. The only person I know who died of it was over 70, fat, and had tons of underlying conditions related to being fat for a long time.

    I want to find these people whose lives have been devastated by this virus. There seem not really to be any, and certainly not compared to the Spanish flu.

    Who is comparing this to the Spanish flu? Apples and oranges.

    It's the type of crap you see on Reddit. 'If you disagree with me you're not compassionate/a good person/being nice/a decent person' etc. Very effete, ambiguous, and feel goody.

    We're talking about scientific data (or at least I am) for God's sake. Mortality rate charts don't care about feelings.

    Good to see the poor, mistreated victims consoling each other.

    The last refuge of a man without an argument: feminine emotional blackmail. Sadly that doesn't work on the internet which is autistic by its nature - it doesn't care about your feelings.

    How many do you know? And for starters, if you say a bunch, you're a liar.

    Through one degree, at least a half dozen deaths.

    I'd say that's a bunch.

    If that's the case, you are a rarity. However, I don't believe that's the case. At all.
