    Lol, you talk like you know everything about it yet are being proven wrong by others living around there. How many years has it been since you were there?

    It’s truly the best job, other than possibly Ryder, most of them can hope to get.

    The loss of that job would be crushing. That’s why they will go to work sick.

    Youve never been there. And you obviously comprehend what you read at an embarrassingly low level.

    those are the people I grew up with. So, yeah, I have a better understanding than you do.

    I have been there. I just don’t live there, and neither do you.

    Are you from there? Do you know many people from there? I mean, It’s obvious you don’t care what happens to these people, or anything about their lives.

    Obviously, we have been caught with our pants down as far as preparation and planning (hopefully we can use this experience to handle it much better in the future), and it has exposed some weaknesses and stupidities that have worked into our system. And, I agree, the initial reaction amounted to not reacting at all.

    That’s the reason I’m not touching the stock market until at least after the election. There’s too many rich and powerful people that want the economy to tank. I am 100% cash in my 401(k) and stock account.

    Again with this argument. I am not from Waterloo. But I want for everyone to be well.

    Is my hope for them to be well not legitimate because I'm not from there?

    that’s enough of this thread. There are a group of posters who refuse to follow the rules and refuse to post in the Politics forum despite being requested multiple times.

    The CDC just came up with some interesting stats.

    https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/hcp/planning-scenarios.html

    Graphs don't translate well on here, so in summary, they go through various scenarios based on what they know to date, and then come up with a best estimate (with what seems to be roughly a middle ground to their various scenarios):

    Their symptomatic case fatality rate comes in at .004 (.4%) overall, with (as noted previously in the thread, I think) about 35% asymptomatic. Which I believe translates to an overall case fatality rate of .0026 (.26%).

    For reference, the best case scenario appears to be .002, with 50% asymptomatic, which puts it at .001 and worst case scenario .010, with 20% asymptomatic, which puts it at .008.

    Might want to check my math on all that, but I think it's accurate.
