Out of 190,664 cases worldwide, 7,519 people died and 80,648 people recovered.
I think a lot of people are afraid that they themselves will die from CV-19, though most of them are healthy and should get through it just fine. But for other people, their biggest fear is they might pass it on to someone who won’t be able to survive it.
There are people I know who, if they caught CV-19 there’s a high chance that they won’t survive.
But I agree that the media and officials are putting undue emphasis on the number of deaths and causing a lot of unnecessary panic. Why aren’t they saying more about the number of people who recovered? It might settle people down a bit. But I’ve seen very little about people recovering from CV-19.
At the same time, though, I think something has be done to protect the people who are high risk. But the measures they’re putting in place, closing everything down and so on, is that going to make a difference?
Right now everything in Michigan is closed down for a couple weeks and they want us to stay home during this time. But in a couple weeks, is the situation going to be any better? What if it’s worse? Are they going to keep extending the length of time that they expect people to avoid in person contact with each other?
