Dr. Fauci Concedes the Coronavirus Mortality Rate May Be Much Closer to a Very Bad Flu

I prefer not to have any virus, but especially that one (corona). I don't want my lungs to feel like they are full of glass.

However, its cowardly to make guess based what you simply want to have happen which is pretty obvious what you are doing
Couldn't agree more. You need to look at FACTS and stop hoping for death because of your political beliefs.
Well, Death Angel, thank you for the advice about not wishing for death, I'm not but that's pretty ironic.

I've posted enough evidence that this virus is MUCH less lethal than the fearmongering hope it'll be, but maybe I need to start yet another thread devoted exclusively to these facts. Somehow, I know certain people just dont want to hear it. They WANT disaster
You have? You've posted evidence that we won't possibly reach 100k-200k deaths?

We reached 38,800 auto deaths in 2019...Should we ban cars too?

I'm sorry, your question is if we should legalize COVID19?
Is english your second language?
No. Your premise is just kind of lame. Why worry about Cancer when we have heart disease that kills so many more?
I'm making a point about why this pandemic is so much more to freak out over when those in the past were but a passing news story....Nothing on this scale for sure. Then you look at who was President during those, and this one, and it is clear.
While there may be something to that, keep in mind this is a global pandemic. I find it hard to believe other nations are in on hyping this situation in order to discredit the president of the US.
Italians really hate Trump I guess.

Dear @Happy Joy
The key to economic recovery is people having faith in credit. As long as we agree to count the original credit and value of assets we hold with each other, we can rebuild based on that value. (It's like if someone decides your house is still worth full value, and agrees to pay that price, it makes it worth that value, not the assessment on paper that might say it's worth half)

HP, that's a separate additional issue from the nature of this pandemic that isn't like the flu.

The reason the hospitalization rates and sudden escalations into thousands of patients is so different from the flu, is this is the first exposure to most of the population. Instead of one strain of virus, it came from a combination of two different species of hosts before it infected humans. So that is causing unpredictable and undetectable patterns of symtoms.

Because the high rate of cases doubles every 2-5 days in different regions, the 15% hospitalization rate puts thousands of patients into ICU for 2-4 weeks at a time, exceeding hospital staff, space, and supplies. That is the critical danger -- losing medical troops so there are not enough soldiers to defend the cities struck by sudden escalations like bombs going off.

If these patients were like a previous flu, the thousands of cases would be spread out where each patient would get one on one attention and maximum care. Instead Italy and next NY are facing losses of medics, either from infection taking them off duty for 2-4 weeks, or by death which further strikes down the morale of hospital staff.

No recent flus, either Flu A or B or Swine Flu caused such pronounced escations that overwhelm each epicenter. Multiple surges, all skyrocketing at the same time, mean national and international aid that could normally be concentrated at one epicenter instead are divided where several overrun epicenters are competing for resources and backup at the same time.

That's why this isn't like another flu.

All cities are warned to be especially vigilant to limit and restrict interactions, after the count reaches 50-100, because once it starts doubling every 3 days, it doesn't take long to become another Italy, where NY and Louisiana are already showing signs of being overrun by shortages.

Sure, we could just wait until the fires burn out. Let those die who are going to die anyway. But that still requires full containment, since even the dead as well as the recovered are found to shed the virus that can still infect others.

Either way, whether full efforts are concentrated on the medical treatment or patients are left to die as in Italy, we still need to contain and separate the high risk areas of quarantine from the low risk or immune sectors if any, in order to put people back to work keeping the economy going.

This economic organization still requires recognizing the full demands involved in the high hospitalization numbers that exceed capacity and are not like the flu!

This explanation is not to make anyone panic but to make sure we are all on the same page, so nobody else panics or argues about denial, so we can better focus on medical demands, create safe jobs and worksite to address and fill the supply shortages, and keep the economic relationships going.

We need to trust each other and invest in common demands and solutions, which will help stabilize the economy based on that credit we agree to recognize with each other.

Is this more clear?

It amazes me that asshole liberals only blame Trump.How about the leaders of China,Spain.Italy.England and many others.Furthermore Fauci reminds me of George Burns.
Are any of those people responsible for tRump's response to the virus?
If I lived in China, Spain, Italy, France, etc., I'd blame those responsible, but since we live in America and trump is responsible for taking care of things here during this kind of situation, why should I blame the French president? trump ran for office claiming only he could fix shit, well?
You have Obamacare.You will be fine.
I do have health insurance. The Affordable Health Care Act was not health insurance. It was a policy designed to provide assistance so people could afford insurance. Maybe you learn that before you talk.

No it has not. But you worship trump so you have fooled yourself into believing that a growing number of infected people means trump is doing a great job.

Like the computer models, initial estimates prove false.

Dr. Anthony Fauci, a key member of the White House Coronavirus Task Force, co-authored an article published Thursday in the New England Journal of Medicine predicting the fatality rate for the coronavirus will turn out to be like that of a "severe seasonal influenza."

Fauci did not concede what the OP claims. He made no conclusions and he stated that what their finds so far suggest, not concludes was:

On the basis of a case definition requiring a diagnosis of pneumonia, the currently reported case fatality rate is approximately 2%.4 In another article in the Journal, Guan et al.5 report mortality of 1.4% among 1099 patients with laboratory-confirmed Covid-19; these patients had a wide spectrum of disease severity. If one assumes that the number of asymptomatic or minimally symptomatic cases is several times as high as the number of reported cases, the case fatality rate may be considerably less than 1%. This suggests that the overall clinical consequences of Covid-19 may ultimately be more akin to those of a severe seasonal influenza (which has a case fatality rate of approximately 0.1%) or a pandemic influenza (similar to those in 1957 and 1968) rather than a disease similar to SARS or MERS, which have had case fatality rates of 9 to 10%

Here is a little picture story I'm writing to my child for home school lessons

Once upon a time there were Americans, and Socialist Americans. America is on the left, Socialist on the right with these intentions for America.

American hating Socialists like these 3 crooked politicians, cooked this up as the virus was born and spread.

Power was so important to them, they wanted to continue this nonsense calling witnesses. We were waiting for Bolton and Lev. Thankfully this hoax was ended like this.

They tried everything they could. Hillary, Obama, and the Deep state created the greatest Swamp creature ever created.

The cause of all this was a devastating psychosis called TDS rendering their victims to this.

His response has been good for some folks.

It's been good for conspiracy theorists.

It's been good for comedians.

It's been good for the Biden campaign.

It has NOT been good for the American people at large.

Most of these morons use Obamacare and haven't got a clue.

The ones not on Medicaid.
