  1. look up the death rate numbers. they are incredibly low for people under 40 and slowly go up and up for older age ranges.

    but elderly people and people with underlying issues can be very susceptible to it.

  2. I live in NYC, the epicenter of COVID-19, under lockdown where we have 10X the amount of cases than the next highest state. We need 30,000 respirators, to save lives of those who are at high risk, who will contract the disease. When it is over in NYC, it is likely that other states will have to go through what we are experiencing. That being said, I personally, don't know a single person who has a confirmed case, yet. I saw my doctor last week, and he hadn't seen a case, among his patients, yet.

    Lockdown in the Chinese city of Wuhan will be lifted April 8th, 2020. They have been under lockdown for two months. IMHO, we may not have the level of compliance in America, that China does, so our lockdowns may last longer.
  3. Seems to be changing in the US though. In LA As of Monday, 415 of the 516 cases confirmed by the agency — about 80% — were between the ages of 18 and 65. And 217 of the total cases — approximately 42% — are people between the ages of 18 and 40.
  4. I know four that have it in my little mountain town. :(
  5. Sorry to hear that. I almost wished I lived in the mountains in upstate NY, where my family came from, but I guess that's not so great either.

    It's expected to peak in NYC, the current epicenter, in two weeks. We're very used to handling major crisis' here, and we'll survive.

  8. anybody can get the virus. young, old, doesnt matter. but the death rates are only worrisome for those who are older or have underlying conditions.

    also those numbers they throw out there to scare you are misleading. 40% sounds like a big number right? but if 40% of people who got it are 40 and under, then that means 60% who got it are 40 and older.

    see what i mean?

  17. Hey, Buddy , how are Yuu holding up ? Yuu good ??
  18. This does not surprise me. I haven't been tested, but have a very strong feeling, in my bones, that I've already had Covid-19, pre-lockdown, about six or seven weeks ago. I didn't suspect at the time, that some mild problems I was having, and my wife had some other problems, were probably from it. If this is as bad as it gets, compared to the regular flu, for me at least, it was a piece of cake. If I had a job, I definitely could have handled going to work with it as the gastric upset and very mild feeling in my lungs were not enough to warrant calling in sick.
