Thanks, I haven't checked those websites. I'm trying to find enough information to prove to my family that this is deadlier than the flu virus.
So you want your preconceived notions supported. You dont want truth or facts. Because thats out there.
Hint....its not. For example in the US COViD has a current mortality rate if 1.4%. Flu is 7.1% currently. So in the US the flu is 6 times more deadly.

Way to miss the point...again.
At least you're consistent.

I wouldn't get cocky yet.
What does your "prospective" tell you millions of unemployed, starving people will do?
Bullets won't be enough for safety.

influenza r0 is 1.4
Covid 19 is 2.4
Influenza mortality rate is 0.10%
Covid19 mortality rate is currently globally averaged from confirmed cases to death at 4.0%
Influenza symptoms are 1 to 4 days to come on
Covid symptoms are 1 to 14 days to come on
For both you can spread the virus during that time and longer but these are the time when you know something might be wrong with you and you may be sick
Influenza requiring hospitalisation could be as high as 5% or lower
Covid19 is about 20%
Also it appears Covid might take much longer to recover from than influenza
This is why the panic and issues.

For those that think it's not serious. Go lick some gas station door handles and get back with us in 2 months to let us know how it went.
Coronavirus-Era Food Supply: America Has a Lot. Moving It Is Tricky.
You wouldn’t know it from the bare grocery store shelves across the country, but America has plenty of food. The challenge is getting it from the farm to your table.
Companies that supply meat, vegetables and other staples are struggling to redirect the nation’s sprawling food supply chain to meet a surge in demand caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
Restaurant closures and shoppers’ rush to stock their pantries are forcing the agriculture industry to boost production, hire new employees and set up “war rooms” to keep grocery stores stocked.
