Stanford study, once verified, would place death rate on par with seasonal flu

Peter Andrews, Irish science journalist and writer based in London questions validity of computer models forecasting viruses potential spread and morbidity.

A lot of cases are asymptomatic or harmless.And these people wouldnt go the the hospital so there is a large number of unreported harmless cases

So we either have an asymptotic variant or the condition is extremely mild for a staggeringly large percentage of cases.

“If our estimates of 48,000-81,000 infections represent the cumulative total on April 1, and we project deaths to April 22 (a 3 week lag from time of infection to death), we estimate about 100 deaths in the county,” said the study. “A hundred deaths out of 48,000-81,000 infections corresponds to an infection fatality rate of 0.12-0.2%.” https://m.washingtontimes.com/news/2020/apr/17/coronavirus-much-more-widespread-previously-though/

I've told people that this is not as bad as the media is making it seem and that their group panic was dangerous and unnecessary. The media has been doing nothing but fearmongering. Politicians should never have shut things down . We will see mark down in out freedoms from this. This whole thing was a political move to grab for more power.

Yet more evidence pointing me to the camp of this while thing was a massive over-reaction. Resource reallocation may have been the only thing needed. Help the area that got hit hard as they get hit hard. Keep everyone else working, with added precaution. This was an expensive lesson.

Confusing news. It's obvious that more people have the coronavirus than what the official numbers show, due to lack of testing mainly. This means that the death rate is lower than the initial estimates. But we can't conclude from this that is as inocent as the seasonal flu. Besides, the actual death rate is probably still higher than the flu.
