Maybe I am just fed up but it seems like governments are going to be far more restrictive and our government far less supportive than first thought.
This is the big problem. Governments are driving profitable of companies (like easyJet) into the ground and laying waste to the world economy to combat a virus that almost certainly has a real mortality rate of <1%. It defies belief.

Let me rephrase a tad.....Governments are driving profitable of companies (like easyJet) into the ground and laying waste to the world economy to combat a virus that almost certainly has a real mortality rate of <77 million. It defies belief.

And your qualifications are? A Mr Know it All, that knows more than expert doctors?

Thought so.

Where did I say I knew more than expert doctors? It's not hard to find the studies online which have been conducted by experts showing that the real mortality rate is in the order of 0.3% or less, and then vastly skewed towards the elderly and those with pre-existing conditions. I'm of the opinion that torching the economy and potentially destroying previously very stable and profitable companies like easyJet is a disproportionate response to the threat. Even in the absolute worst case projections contained in the Imperial study that the UK government heavily relied on, only 500,000 people would have died.

I have heard that the mortality rate is arround .06%. Also some research is indicating that generally people sub twenties are unlikely to be infected, as the virus unable to bond with the host in this age group.
To give you an idea, more people die yearly from smoking then are likely to die from Covid-19.

​​​​Sorry truckflyer, but is that really necessary? Let me guess, you don't like numbers; or is it the comprehension that bothers you?
Anyway here is an exert from the nytimes. Similar statistics have also been announced in the Netherlands as well as Wuhan. The total mortality rate might be arround .5% procent.

​​​​"But he did suggest, based on the survey, that if as many as 2.7 million New Yorkers had the virus, the death rate in New York from Covid-19 would most likely be far lower than previously believed, possibly 0.5 percent of those infected."

Which is why a reliable, widely available antibody test is so vital in all of this.
