    I don't consider 54 year olds as "younger." I was thinking of, say, 0-30.

    How many have they infected? We don't know how many are already infected--but it's likely far more than are reported. The LA Times, e.g., said today that in LA, they aren't bothering to test everyone in hospitals, if the diagnosis won't change the treatment.

    No one is saying to do nothing, but a full shutdown is worse than the cure, perhaps.

    The CDC said 20 to 54, not just 54!

    OK...so what's the number for folks under 30?

    Estimates continue to be that COVID-19 has a mortality rate of .5% to 3%, vs. ~.1% for influenza. South Korea is coming in on the low end, while Italy and Spain look disastrously high. I stand by my numbers.

    Commenting on something worth review IMO.
    Countering view points in this thread have been digested over time and new realities discovered. Opinions in direct opposition to some earlier stated positions have made this thread worth following.

    Well...estimates are that there are 11 cases for every reported one, so perhaps you should divide your mortality numbers by 11?
