What's your point?

I've seen morbidity statistics ranging from 2% to 5%. For the common influenza it's 0.1%.

On the other hand we have 480,000 dying every year as a direct result of smoking cigarettes. Does that mean we should shrug off COVID, Is that what you're trying to say?

By the way, daily deaths from COVID are now neck and neck with deaths from smoking. And, yes, if I had my way, smoking would be illegal.

"These numbers were last updated on May 10 at 11:46 p.m"

Is there some point in giving the exact time of the announcement? Why don't you include seconds and milliseconds too?

If you're saying we shouldn't take a pandemic seriously, you should just go to hell.
