"It's only 5% death rate"
hey remember when HLTV won't shut the fuck up about the death rate being only less than 2% and the flu was way worse?
damn bro, this is the big political thread? im disappointed
i mean i agree
we should just continue to take precautions as we move ahead
keep social distancing while going back to work, people who are vulnerable should still stay in isolation
Not saying I disagree with everything here, but a 5% deathrate (I know it's lower than that) is still pretty bad.
+1 can't believe I had to shut down my kebab stand due to a flu
Well it's correct but that'll delay to finish Corona. Whoever calls it'll end soon is just a lip-service. It won't 100% die out. It'll keep have minor pandemics. But I do understand for economical part so I honestly don't know what's the best. Whoever returns to work needs some benefits as well. Whoever decides not to work also needs benefits as well until end of Summer maybe? I didn't think what kinds of benefits. That's for government's part.
Man just look at different countries. In US died 100,000 in European countries 20,000+, in Japan(no quarantine) 500, in Belarus(no quarantine) 100. Is this virus killing on a national basis? Definitely they are just imputing all the deaths who have the virus as if they have died because of it. It's a world show. Cruel and hypocritical. How much people lost their job just because the politicans want to justify another crisis made by their hands.
the economy will shrink regardless of action, it can only grow back to accommodate the population and if you lose a significant number of people you'll probably have a recession anyway
Personally, i've been watching videos about the Paris attacks from 2015 because i want to understand what happened but the more i look into it the less i understand, and i can't stop crying like a baby.
I think a 5% death rate is pretty big, it will probably get lower as more cases finish. I also think 100000 deaths is a pretty big number also, and long term effects like lung and kidney damage were noticed in people of all ages who recovered which is enough for me to consider getting the virus a pretty big deal
It would be nice to get things up and running again with continued precautions. New cases in Canada are slowing down big (we only had 758 new cases yesterday), but I'm afraid that people will act like the virus has just dissipated and not be careful when outside, making us go back into lockdown
Over in the US though, you guys are still getting around 20000 cases daily, and with protests around the country cases will have a huge spike. I think it's still a big deal, and countries most likely will have to go into lockdown again or the virus will become rampant.
I don't know too much about how the US government reacted to COVID-19 but I do know that they sent a one-time check of like $1200 dollars for people who lost their jobs over the lockdown. Imo that's not a lot compared to what they did in other countries who set up much bigger benefits. In Canada citizens who lost their jobs received monthly checks of $2000 for up to 4 months, and not only was the time extended but also the people who could receive it
Sorry for bad english if there's any im really tired
The death rate (count) is only that low because of the actions the US took. (They did a pretty bad job, but bad action is batter than no action)
Economies shutting down, this I can see. People are getting affected, even the rich (wealthy, but not the Uber rich) but reopening the economy is like increasing the chances of death, in order for the people to enjoy benefits which they can use if they're alive. Which is kind of ironic (I know I phrased this poorly.
But at the current stage, countries can start re-opening their economies and they are doing so. I know that Canada and the US have taken steps to re-open the economy, and the 3 major East Asian countries has had most of their industries open for a while now.
So, I'm pretty sure you can work as long as your job isn't in a specific industry, like night-clubs (This "fucked"/inconvenienced one of my friends family as they ran multiple, and clubs were closed in china for a long time), gyms, and other. Many essential work places are reopening and more should be opening in the bear future.
I've never had the flu in my entire life, I got it twice Nov/December, with my place of work losing up to 60% of labor force calling in sick at its height. We all already got it, the citizens that keep saying"oh we cant open to fast this and that" some are on unemployment making more money than they would at work, what incentive would they have to go back? 40 million people on the internet spreading the same lies and fear to keep there new and dehumanizing way of life
do you people even know how bad was the spanish flu before talking about it?
i major in clinical medicine
5% death rate is very high considering other regular viruses
u cant say because it doesnt reach ebola's 90% death rate so it isnt dangerous :(
Every event like this strips freedoms and the excuse is always "for your safety"
Not a chance while these rioters keep it spreading like a wild fire.
It cannot be said that the death rate is 5% when 80% of cases are symptomatic. Death rate is about 0,2% when we assuming much more ppl infected with no symptoms. So its almost Just like flu.
