Given the incongruence with the information we’re being fed, one has to wonder what exactly is occurring.
The issue is this, 82% of cases are mild and do not require hospitalization. 18% do. Given that America has about 320 million people, that means roughly 57 million may need to be hospitalized. A quick google search says that there are roughly 790,000 hospital beds in the country. So, if you are one of the first that gets it, you will receive good care. If you are in the middle or end, you may not receive any care because there simply is nowhere to put people. The 2% mortality rate is based on you actually getting care. We don't know what the rate could be if you get no treatment and need it. And the other thing not being mentioned is what this will do to insurance company finances. 2 weeks in a hospital is expensive.

You either accept it all as truth, or accept it all as lie.
This is what has puzzled me the most on ATS. If you are at worried at all people assume you are panicking.
If you are not worried that means you don't believe it at all.
What about us people in the middle? (seems pretty similar to politics huh?)
