Even at 2 percent which I think is high that's 60,000 deaths.
    As far as I know, no country has yet to see a decrease in number of cars per day. No one has peaked yet. There's no way to tell how many will be infected. We'll need a 70% infection rate to get herd immunity.

    I heard one Dr on TV say it was more like 85-90%.

    A positive piece of news is that there are some indications that this is asymptomatic in 50% of people? And we haven't discovered that due to limited testing?

    Crazy, and a huge part of what makes it so dangerous! I took groceries to my 92 year old mom today. I kept my distance, but told her to wipe everything with the disinfectant wipes, toss the trash and WASH HER HANDS. I feel fine, but how do I know? Who knows when that stuff was put on the shelves, and by whom? It’s those sneaky carriers!

    Yeah I guess that's a double-edged sword. Good for herd immunity, bad for preventing spread.

    Figuring out why they are asymptomatic would be a nice piece of knowledge.

    Italy appears to be dropping in new cases per day.

    South Korea for sure is, as that site shows.
