Quote:
36,000 people in the USA

The big heal is for two reasons.
- The figure you quoted is the outcome after vaccination
- The death rate for the flu is roughly 0.2% of the infections. Coronavirus is averaging about 2.5 to 3% death rate and this figure would be a lot higher when it gets to 3rd world countries

Hence, as there is no vaccination yet for coronavirus the death rate in USA would be significantly higher, if it is left to chance.
