« on: November 22, 2020, 10:53:48 AM »
Covid has a roughly 99% survival rate.  People tout it as a panacea for reopening.

For comparison, skydiving, a perceived notably risky undertaking had 3.3 million jumps in 2019.  It had 15 fatalities.

Skydiving has a 99.9995% survival rate.

Covid is 2000 times more deadly than jumping from a plane.

According to BTS and NHTSA , 38,800 people died in vehicle crashes in 2019, near the 38,000+ annual average.  The people USA also made 411 Billion vehicle trips (not miles, trips).

That is a 99.99999% survival rate.
