While true, can you imagine the number of people who could be exposed to the virus by just ONE person whose incubation period is 24 days?

We are still in the early and growth stages of this pandemic, now is the time to get ready. As for the only cure, a time machine.

NEW VIRUS STUDY DATA
Some new data. The pneumonia percentage has my attention.
Not sure how good the data is but all I can find that is new.
This seems to be the case with some. And super spreaders don't seem to get very sick?

Not being flippant here, but if you had the virus and consumed a bottle of whisky, in a short period of time, wouldn't the alcohol content in the blood be high enough to kill all traces of the virus. Since its the alcohol based disinfectants which kill it off?

No one ever said 1% isn't bad, but it's also not Ebola level bad. It's also not the 40% mortality some people were raving about. Yeah, it's bad, but it's something that the world will survive, and so will most of us, even most of the people you know will.
It means that on average, for every 100 people you know, 1 will die, and I'm not treating it lightly at all. I have an aged father with congestive heart failure, so he's high risk to be in that 1%. I am acutely aware of it.
But what are you going to do? Run around wearing a sandwich board screaming "Repent! The End is Nigh?" The way I see it, there is very little to do but try to ride it out as best we can. Panicking over it benefits no one at all.

Agree it doesn’t stop you getting it, but it greatly reduces the impact of it on you when you do
Actually, contrary to popular myth, there is no real proof of that, only some questionable studies done by the pharma companies selling the vaccines.
