Another day and other piece of evidence that shows that covid isnt nearly as dangerous as we originally thought. How high does this evidence need to stack before it no longer becomes a controversial opinion to get the economy back up and running, sooner rather than later?

Every death of a person with covid is counted as a death from covid. And even artificially boosting the numbers like that, the death rate is still a fraction of a percent. Time to end the lockdown.

What do these people have in common? Strict diet and nothing to do but work out. I wonder if being healthy keeps you healthy.

Don't be stupid people. Covid has killed nearly 50,000 in the month of April alone. That's with the stay-at-home orders and social distancing guidelines. We don't have a proven treatment or vaccine. On the other hand, the flu kills, on average, 61,000 annually. So Covid-19 has killed almost as many as the flu does per year in a single month. Once again, that's with the stay-at-home orders and other various orders put in place on the state level. We also have treatments and vaccines for the flu and know what to expect. We are still desperately trying to understand SARS-CoV-2. Open up the economy and we will be hit by a second, possibly more severe, more deadly wave of Covid cases. Let's not be stupid. Take the advice of medical experts and epidemiologists and not the advice of someone who is in no way, shape, or form an expert on this sort of thing. You know who I'm talking about. Also, deaths resulting from Covid are certainly more than just those with the disease. In places like New York where they have a high case load, it becomes harder for those with other diseases and health issues to get the treatment they need because the hospitals are busy dealing with the massive amounts of Covid cases. If you value life you will follow the recommendations of the experts.

It's interesting that the most affected States are also Blue States... It's almost like it's an anti-socialism virus

Most, if not all, prisoners are kept in an environment with caloric restriction, limited exposure to clean air, clean water and sanitary living conditions and basically lab rat levels of control. Sure plenty of men in lockup may not be super healthy but ALL are in SURVIVAL MODE, cause IT IS PRISON! If you never been, you dont know. If you been, you want out. Human bodies are dynamic, adaptive and barely unlocked in potential. For its when we are stressed, we are our best! -posting for all those locked away who yearn to be free, Peace my brothers.

These articles are somewhat misleading - this data only highlights how contagious COVID-19 is with long incubation periods. The vast majority of infected, asymptomatic people later develop symptoms - this data does not suggests 95%+ of the population won't have any symptoms at all.
