Hey Kensrs I will. I believe Scientific American is a trusted intellectual publication.kensrs wrote: ↑08 May 2020, 03:03TB303 -
Read this article:
I have been reading Lancet, CDC, FDA journals all along.
I am putting the numbers into a perspective. When the media continues to sensationalize this virus I think it is important to put it into contextual terms, such as H1N1 and the flu, both other viruses.
Keep in mind, the flu continues to be poo-pooed as a comparison. I find that intellectually dishonest. The flu and human beings have had over 20,000 yrs for the species to develop herd immunity, and it still hasn't. In the USA alone it infects millions and kills 40-100k a year. Still no rebuttals to H1N1 in the press either. 60,000,000 in the USA infected, over 20,000 confirmed deaths.
My answer to your question was no. We will see the number of infected rise with more available testing, and reliable anti-body testing coming online, but with it the mortality % continues to decline to levels approaching the flu and H1N1.
