“Last summer, the USS Theodore Roosevelt suffered from a COVID-19 outbreak that infected one-fifth of its 4,800 crew, resulting in one death”
According to this article: https://upi.com/2885001
Of course every person’s life is valuable but did YOU read that quote?
1 of 4,800
So that is a isolated segment of people without the convoluted mess of the press and politics.
Just doing a bit of math, 4,800 / 1 = .0002 death rate in a rather controlled environment. Of those found to be infected, 20%, = .001.
Either way, not bad odds compared with the fragility of physical life.
Yes, older people are more susceptible.
Yes, death stinks.
Yes, its a nasty virus
Yes, so is cancer, heart disease, diabetis, influenza, phenomena, meningitis, malaria, polio, and every other disease and cause of death.
What am I missing?
