Comparing Covid-19 to the flu is like comparing apples to taxicabs. This is far deadlier, and to the extent people play this down, it just makes things exponentially worse for them and everybody else. The statistics that some people quote compare flu after it has run its course to Covid-19 that is just beginning to get really, really bad. The death toll will soon be doubling and doubling and doubling etc etc instead of just increasing. If you are over 70 they may not give you a ventilator. Listen to what the real experts say.
From what PROVEN statistic did you define this.
One of the new broadcasters on TV today dared say that of all the cases in Minn. over 200 have recovered and relieased.
Paranoia strikes deep, into your life it has crept.
This site from a month ago tells as known at that time age related death percentage but the babbling heads on TV want SO badly for people to believe that it is as deadly for the young as the old which is total BS.

Another 28 people have died
from flu-related illnesses, according to the latest flu activity report
from the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH).
While the deaths were confirmed in the past week, the spike in the number of deaths happened a few weeks ago, according to the report, with at least 10 confirmed flu deaths in each of the past the past three weeks.
A total of 95 people have died from flu-related illnesses
this season in Minnesota, including two children. That matches the total from all of last flu season, with one more pediatric death this season as well. However, the number is still well below the 2016-17 and 2017-18 flu seasons, when 273 and 440 total deaths were reported, respectively.
Except for the babbling heads on TV compared to the flu, Chinese Virus is cheap headlines.
Ignorance is not bliss this time.
