I don't want it to kill anybody



Me neither. But if anyone wants to make me your life insurance beneficiary, I'm available.

Two percent is a lot, especially if it's 2 percent this wave, 2% next year if it mutates. I don't want it to kill anyone, and I don't want to lose anyone important to me, and I don't want to die because I'm important to other people. Things like this really shows how weak our government really is. I'm not sure I believe this story being posted about how it kills old and sickly, I don't think it's true at all.

It feels like every year or two there's a big scare from a new virus, whether it be Bird Flu, Swine Flu or Beer Virus. I know it can be easy to get swept up in the hysteria, but it's less deadly than influenza. You do wonder when we'll encounter a virus that we won't have time to adapt to.

currently it is 25-50 times more deadly than flu based on death %. Donít go by totals.

People have to justify their salaries and new hires somehow. Anyone here think the next heath dept budget will be scrutinized?

Here's an amazing factoid:

The sales of Corona beer have plummeted to the lowest in decades!
So many better men, a few of them friends, were dead. And a thousand thousand slimy things lived on, and so did I.

I feel bad for Corona beer over this. They already have it bad enough with the current seltzer craze, and now people buying even less of it because of the word Corona...

Are you willing to go to an extreme and only drink Corona beer as your only alcholic beverage until this passes? That would support them.

Looks like Google has blocked Coronavirus themed products. I found a bunch last week.
