This is information based on wrong assumptions, is misleading, and dangerous.
The COVID-19 deaths are rising exponentially. The comparison with the other death rates is completely wrong headed.
COVID-19 is more contagious, far more deadly, and requires far, far more hospitalization and intensive care with need for ventilator assistance than influenza.
That’s true. My fear is coronavirus becoming an annual problem like the flu.
But it is also true that we don’t seem to take diseases like the flu seriously. The anti-vaxxer movement spreads ignorance about the flu vaccine, and many people don’t get it or have their children vaccinated, but meanwhile, many people are wondering when a vaccine for coronavirus will be available.
Correct me if I’m wrong but I thought you specialized in viruses? I had assumed you were in an underground lab somewhere trying to save us all. Makes you much less cool if that isn’t the case…
I studied viruses as part of my coursework in graduate school, if that helps you.
I am more of a specialist in human viruses, like our new resident Giulius Ebola.
Got you. Have you figured out a cure yet because that rotting of the brain is no joke…
Oh, you thought I was working on a cure? When I said I was a specialist, I meant in the sense of frustrating and mocking them.
