    Might not be near as bad as projected in the UK.

    "One of the leading UK epidemiologists informing the government of its policy options, Neil Ferguson, just reduced his projections of total UK deaths from 400,000 to 20,000 (or lower) – a 95% reduction – because he had more data to develop a better model. Other epidemiologists suggest that there is evidence using current data that the fatality rate will be closer to 0.1% than the the original WHO estimate of 3%. Pretty big change."

    Told people this would get real, really quickly.

    Everyone wanted to stick to normalcy bias.

    0.1% is still 5x deadlier than any influenza, type A and B influenza have a mortality rate of 0.02%, when you take 0.02 x 5, you get 0.1%, math is fun!

    We would have never had the problems we are having now, as every state in the union would have had full travel restrictions, no commuting for leisure for 6 months, that allows contact tracing to occur, and to quarantine the infected and asymptomatic carriers.

    Nobody in OK needs to go to Florida for fun right now. If it isn't agriculture or manufacturing medical equipment, it probably isn't necessary. Defense Production Act ripcord would have been pulled in February. Stafford Act March 1st.

    We are in this for the long haul now though, normalcy won't just return, because if we do that, the virus will rear it's ugly head again and again, until it kills large percentages of the population.

    There is no "herd immunity".
