    other risk factors: Higher if you are male, and if you have pre-existing conditions like coronary disease and diabetes.
    if you take out the old age groups which are the highest and just start at the 60 - 69 group, the death rate is an avg of just under 1%. I wonder how many of THOSE were imuno-compromised...fear mongering is still the name of the game!

    Oh, and if someone was not sick enough to get tested by a doctor or just never went to the doctor, they won't be in the statistics. Becuase no one knew they had the disease.
    If it weren't for the Resurrection of Jesus, we'd all be in DEEP TROUBLE!

    Yes, the death rate below 69 is probably below 0.01%, less than one in ten thousand.

    People simply need to accept that all governments have not prepared well for deadly pandemics that could be reasonably expected to happen from time to time. None of the CDCs across the world are prepared. No country is prepared.

    The calculations are unreliable because they compare the dead with anyone who is or was sick when they should compare deaths to cleared cases only.
    "As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths." Isaiah 3:12

    There is no such thing as innocence, only degrees of guilt.

    Generally speaking, I don't take advice from people who speak in the third person.

    After looking at it, I actually agree with you here. Current world wide death rate of all closed cases stands (as of today) at 16%

    Did you see Sparko's post? You're off by more than a little.

    Here is some useful information from a highly qualified doctor about what exactly the virus is, what it does (why it isn't the flu), how it kills and the threat it represents.
