It's all part of the game. Use pandemic to fortify election. Emissions drop 7%, keep pandemic going. Goal is 7.6% every year till 2030.

But, but, but Trump said it was going to go away like magic! And after the election the lamestream media was going to stop talking about it.

So your odds of death as a healthy individual for the old strain is what, 0.2%? So 70% higher brings your odds of dying to 0.0034 or 0.34%, or a 99.9966% chance at surviving. Okay.

So .03%, instead of .02% death rate? Plus they are just speculating.

Like the Spanish flu. If the virus did originate in bats then that means the original strain isn’t used to infecting human hosts but after awhile it will mutate to become better at infecting humans. Watch Extra History’s series on the Spanish Flu also for those who think “BIASED!” Well the series is pre Covid 19 by a long while.
