It's going to be a challenge for many governments to ease restrictions and tell people to get on with their lives given the stampede of the herd. Germany suggests a death rate of 0.37 % maximum based on full testing of a small area. How will governments tell the electorate they got it badly wrong?

Sorry I'm not buying it, consider that all Nations tabulation of Corona death is exaggerated to the extreme, just like in the United States of America potentially all deaths are considered Covid-19 related.

Where is the comparison to the usual cases of influenza and death from that? How is this version of influenza any more deadly than the other versions of influenza previously being spread around the world by business and tourist travel?

So basically the Corona thing is a statistical nothingburguer.

280,000 dead that we know of. And another 250,000,000 from starvation if the lockdown stays in effect. It's time to reopen. There is no putting the virus away, best to learn to live with it.
