Hi Todd. Hugs and kisses for Mandy from Lee and I.
Djin. The flu is 0.10% lethal. 10 times that is 1%. Listen to the entire segment and Dr. Fauci specifically said that. South Kore has the most reliable large numbers with by far the most testing. Today 7,550 cases and 60 deaths. That is 0.00794702. Or seven tenths of one percent.
(Let's round the S. Korean number to eight tenths of one percent,)
1%, and the U.S. growth curve is following both the international and Italian curves: exponential. The estimate is that because of delays, we're about
a month behind where we could have been. Either we take adequate measures to spread out cases over time or our health-care resources will not suffice. I hope your optimism proves correct, but not to prepare would be foolish. From studies of Cinese cities, early measures to keep population density down (social distancing) make a huge difference in infection rate.
