I kind of thought the rules of the universe would be to follow the science.  You seem to have other opinions. 


Wrong as always.  Science is the study of the laws of the universe therefore the laws of the universe do not depend on science.  If all intelligent life died, there would be no science but there would still be laws of the universe.

I am lucky as I have had the flu several times throughout my lifetime but apparently have a good immune system and did the correct things to recover.  

 

BUT I'll admit I'm scared of this Coronavirus cause it's more contagious to begin with.  I don't like the idea of being smothered slowly to death.    Or having my lungs, heart or arteries eaten away.   

 

It's not like the flu---it's more dangerous.  

 

When a virus killed half the world's population there were no medical experts for advice,  no masks, social distancing .that was the black plague in the 1300's.

   In 1918 --we had a pandemic in the USA that killed around 2 million people.   And if some of our Americans keep defying the experts and keep listening to Trump instead....I believe we'll all die but sooner than we may want to.

Which would be defined as sheltering in place until the metrics  set by the CDC are achieved, wearing a face mask when you have to go out, no gatherings of more than 5 people who stay 6-8 feet apart from each other.  

 

Just reminding everyone.

Course, the count has gotten somewhat muddled with the Covid-19

 

The flu comes around every year.

 

Compare total deaths this time 2019 to  this time 2020.

 

It's about a 80K increase if I remember correctly, and that's with stay at home. That's basically March and April.

 

Really need to look at the Rt numbers compared to four weeks ago to see what's going on.
