    .5% mortality rate for people in their 50's. 5.4% mortality rate for people over 70. under 50 it's like the flu. we should've just let the hospitals overflow with older people. we deserved it. older people vote conservative. we brought it on ourselves. death panels. yet for some strange reason democrats decided to shut down the economy in order to save people that don't vote for them. which was compassionate and stupid.

    in nature the old and weak are left behind to ensure the survival of the pack.

    I real threat to a species is a disease that attacks the youth and future or society. I can't think of a disease worse than Zika.

    we are all worried about a disease like Covid that affects rich people and affects the economy. but biologically a disease like Zika is more threatening. and alarming since it affects children.

    COVID mortality is something like 10 to 20 times more severe than the flu. CFR for flu is roughly 0.1%, and for COVID it is about 2%. Both affect elderly people more severely. CFR for flu for people over 70 is about 1%, and for people in their 50's is about 0.05%. If you want to say that COVID for young people is like the flu for elderly people, that might be right, but I don't think that's what most people hear when they hear that COVID is like the flu.

    I found a surprisingly limited amount of pictures of cats waiting to pounce from around a corner.

    The is a pretty standard activity for cats, and considering the internet was made for cats (and porn) I didn't think this would be a heavy lift.
    I'm not expecting to grow flowers in the desert...

    Today the US shattered the record for daily new cases that it set just yesterday. 183,527 according to WorldoMeters. Unbelievable. Practically every state has seen its cases skyrocket lately, even those that seemed to have it relatively under control. Where and when will it end?

    Edit: 181,194 according to NY Times, one of the few times their figure has been below that of WorldoMeters.

    Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner's children were "withdrawn" from school after administrators raised concerns about the family's adherence to Covid precautions.
