Those figures from the link don't necessarily add up too well.
The health care workers are 35% of the total positive tests , 11 have died . When there's over 6000 nl deaths , 11 represents a tiny fraction of total deaths for 35% of positive tests. Something's wrong there , not sure what yet. The hospitalisation rate in nl is over 20 % of positive tests too.
Also those healthcare figures should allow some idea of how many asymptomatic cases there are per positive tests , but it's not raised.

What's the Infection Fatality Rate (IFR) though?
If most countries are primarily testing those with symptoms, the elderly, the medical fragile...of course the CFR is going to be high.
What CFR are countries that have conducted widespread randomized testing reporting?
Their CFR is .5%
0.5% is certainly not the mortality rate here.
That is 4,76% but wait
You must hate math.
The New York Times, the Economist and the Financial Times now publish updated figures for excess deaths in multiple countries. The New York Times and the Economist show Jakarta, Indonesia with only 84 confirmed Covid-19 deaths in March, but 1,000 total excess burial licences (according to the New York Times) or 1,543 (according to the Economist).
The large excess in other deaths is one reason why we can’t reliably compare the confirmed Covid-19 death tolls around the world. In retrospect, the drooping curve charts that you may have seen in newspapers or in the government’s daily briefing can imply a more precise understanding of the outbreaks in different countries than we ever really had. (That is why the Financial Times, whose charts have become central to many people’s understanding of the epidemic, has recently switched its attention to excess mortality.)

in That case, a corona virus caused cold, or a bad/sever cold as it would have been called before 2020 would be as dangerous to your friend any other year while suffering with COPD. It is people with that condition and a handful of others that make up the over 160,000 dead every year in the USA if they come down with a corona virus cold.
Your weak colds are likely from Rhino virus. The strong nasty ones are from corona viruses. But in the age of newspeak, the cold has gone extinct and has been replaced with COVID-19, the deadly new disease, that is ... pretty much as lethal as the common cold with nearly identical symptoms??
I wouldn't never have made such a fuss if the cabal did not try to use this to literally destroy our country. Its too bad cattle are too stupid to read for themselves. Its why video games marketed towards the masses barely require any reading anymore. The game just talks. Great way to condition people out of the habit of reading. Reading, being the chief fundamental process to do research and find truth and staying self empowered.
