    Population in USA = 331 MILLION
    Number of covid infections = 7 MILLION
    Number of deaths from covid = 221,000
    Survival rate for covid = 97%
    Fatality rate out of the 7 MILLION cases = 3%
    Fatality rate of covid for the population of 331 MILLION PEOPLE in USA = 0.06
    Percentage of people in the USA who have not gotten infected/ got infected and survived = 99.94%

    If you all would watch the video instead of just reading the title, the researcher said that in real world conditions, the staying power is likely to be much shorter. That's due to UV exposure and fluctuations between humidity and temperature compared to the control that was used in the experiments. They also said that although they found infectious viruses 28 days later, it's not necessarily clear whether it would be enough to actually infect a human.

    Putin's Puppet is a modern day con man.
    He can't protect himself, his family and his staff.
    He is not protecting the country. Irresponsible behavior has its risk.
    Stay safe, wear a mask, keep social distance, wash your hands.
    Take personal responsibility for your health and the health of your family and friends.
    Wearing a mask is like having insurance. If you get in an accident or get the virus you will wish you had it.
    Vote for a leader that respects science and scientists. Vote Blue and throw the bums out.

    Knew this 8 months ago. It's funny how much information that has not been told to the population. Hundreds of Millions of lives would not be in the state that they are in now. This is why I HATE the Media and the politics of money. BTW. I'm in one of the Hot zones for 8 months now and not sick. I'm also a retired forensic cleaner. I guess I know a bit about DEALING WITH pathogens. It's called common sense but unfortunately in this day and age there is not enough of it to go around.

    THIS MAN DID NOT HAVE TO DIE. But he did. Remember this and the many thousands who needlessly died because of the ignorance of others and the politics of GREED.

    Lol, wrong. This only applies in a climate controlled, sealed, isolated environment excluding all environmental and outside factors in lab, ie completely irrelevant to the layman individual and completely misrepresenting the results of the study. But, not like the media does any journalism anymore

    Basic decon procedures from both the Medical Industry and Military Chemical Warfare procedure: Take your dirty stuff off at the door, and clean it before entering your COVID-free, sanitized home. Consider it contaminated by default.
    Remove shoes, change clothes, wash hands, sanitize masks and prep fresh clothes, take shower after stripping down if you really wanna get medieval with it.

    CDC's Director stated that a fully distributed vaccine will take 9 to 12 months. Trump is for HERD IMMUNITY, which will expose seniors in massive numbers. 10% of seniors die from covid while survivors are left debilitated.
