My response - taken from the main Corona Virus thread:

Read it for yourself and make up your own mind
I did read it - as best I could, because it is almost unintelligible.

Given that ABC14News is of highly dubious credibility, and this story seems to have been put together by a non-English speaker, I went to the source ie The Economist.

https://www.economist.com/graphic-detai ... -good-news

Their conclusion:
This sounds alarming, but should be reassuring. Covid-19 takes 20-25 days to kill victims. The paper reckons that 7m Americans were infected from March 8th to 14th, and official data show 7,000 deaths three weeks later. The resulting fatality rate is 0.1%, similar to that of flu. That is amazingly low, just a tenth of some other estimates. Perhaps it is just wrong, possibly because the death toll has been under-reported. Perhaps, though, New York’s hospitals are overflowing because the virus is so contagious that it has crammed the equivalent of a year’s worth of flu cases into one week.
No doubt there will be numerous other studies, both in the future, and probably currently, which will agree, or disagree with Messrs J. Silverman & A. Washburne of Johns Hopkins CSSE.

You need to wonder where these figures come from when in the likes of the UK mortality rates for Covid-19 in hospitals only are running at just over 12% and in Scotland some 9.47%. Definitive "it takes 20-25 days to kill" are then followed "reckons that 7 million are infected" show you just how much manipulation of figures is going on.

good lord Jackoff. no peer review, very speculative, full off statements like

If covid-19 has spread faster than commonly thought, it must be less deadly.

If, if, if

However, I deserve to apologise in this instance, The Economist is not a fringe website, and you are correct on that score.

I'm sure "The Economist" covered that part.

Well Mr whistler,
So name calling is fun eh?
Dont worry, I saw your post before you changed it to this

Remember this statement.
Resorting to personal **** is simply an indication that they cannot refute the facts. We see the same in somebody else that should have more dignity, but prefers petty name calling and claims of Fake News.

If you cannot play the ball, play the man. I prefer to let the true facts speak for themselves.

Haven't you turned into the consummate hypocrite?

And, Jackspratt, you're no better.

The truth comes out eventually over time, because liars can't remember their lies.
Also, don't try and bullshit a bullshitter.
I've been around to long for that.

Keep digging that hole boys.
I'll keep throwing shovels.

Jeez mick, you are sharp as a tack.

But be careful with those shovels please, they seem to be bouncing off your head. ](*,)

I'm extremely insulted
Whistler is a kiwi, a pretend Australian
The other one is just a ---- stirrer with little or no knowledge of anything, just snipes from the sidelines and when confronted has great retorts like "its been discussed elsewhere", a true keyboard warrior
you can call me anything but to lump me in with them amazing, their self confessed "Loony Left"
I'm definitely right of center

Extremely sorry.
Not and never putting you with those deadbeats.
Did not lump you with them.
No way.
I'm "right with you".
Their day is coming.
Just too dumb to realise it.

A quick question to you Mickojak .
If as you believe , as you constantly promote , that this virus is just another flu , which it is .
Have you or your family taken any extra precautions to protect yourselves from this flu , that you would not normally take for any old flu that does the rounds every year ?
If so , why ?
