Math is hard with big numbers so here it goes...No it’s not.
There are ~330,000,000 people in the US.
10% would be 33,000,000 *Rates seen in Italy
5% would be 16,500,000
1% would be 3,300,000 *Global rate claim 1-5%
.5% would be 1,650,000
.4% would be 1,320,000 *CDC rate claim, excluding deaths not tested/counted
So 1.3 million people would die if we let .4% of the population die. It sounds, small, but .. math.
Take also into account that older people and people with underlying conditions (overweight, obese, diabetes, high blood pressure, etc) have the highest chance of death as well, and lets be honest - there are a lot of both of those groups that exist in US.
The age factor -
48% death rate for 75+
22% death rate for 45-77
3.9% death rate for 18-44
That doesn't include the ones with ongoing life long impact to their bodies because instead of death they had strokes, heart attacks, months on a ventilator, etc.
So again, please tell me how my number was wrong?
