I'm just going to ignore the top part because there's no way you can say "pretty sure" given the symptoms are similar to the flu and cold. Coughs and temperatures are not uncommon, so maybe you did, but there's no way you can self diagnose something like this.Pretty sure I had it a few weeks ago just wasn't tested for it. Not only me but about a third of the people at my work we're all sick with it I believe. Over 80% of the people only experience mild symptoms. People that are dying have underlying conditions primarily. Yes I'm fairly certain that 3 to 5% is just not going to happen. I believe it's been in our country for a while and moving around. One of the senator stated that between January and March they know for certain people in our country died with covid 19 and they thought it was the flu or pneumonia.
I think it is dangerous in a pretty bad nasty virus. But I think nasty viruses flus etc have been circulating and kill people everyday. I understand this may be a little bit worse because it's super contagious. However this particular strain does not seem to change as some viruses do so scientists are saying once you get at once you won't be able to catch it again because you'll have antibodies. This virus does not mutate.
That being said I think people panicking and instilling fear is also making everybody act crazy. well I do believe it's serious I just think it's going to have to run its course the people who die will die in the ones who get it will build an immune system and antibodies to protect against it
It also does mutate. It underwent a mutation when it infected humans and scientists had long expected for a coronavirus to mutate to infect humans given the prevalence of them in bat populations. As a virus reproduces, they accumulate genetic changes, and in some cases these changes can enable to change across species. Lots of good data on this. It mutates, but it's not doing it very quickly.
Are you saying that we should simply let the elderly and vulnerable die? How do you think the average person would feel if you said to the nation: just let everyone get it and let the people who will die, die. Lol. Pretty sure Boris Johnson got slammed for having a semi similar message.
