    The following WebMD information has put my mind at ease regarding covid-19. Although, I feel badly for those who have died and their families, it reassures me that the threat is not as grievous as we see everyday on television and in the newspaper.

    "Coronavirus Recovery Rates

    Scientists and researchers are constantly tracking infections and recoveries. But they have data only on confirmed cases, so they can’t count people who don’t get COVID-19 tests. Experts also don’t have information about the outcome of every infection. However, early estimates predict that the overall COVID-19 recovery rate is between 97% and 99.75%."

    If you got the vaccine that’s supposed to protect you from the disease, then how am I a threat to you if I get it?

    You should be protected, right?

    Oh you don’t believe the vaccine is powerful enough to protect you from people that get the disease?

    Then why are you getting the vaccine???

  11. Jian Graye October 18, 2020

    Seniors die of covid at alarming rates. Trump & Dr Scott Atlas intend to implement HERD IMMUNITY in 2021. Between approval of a vaccine & its distribution, CDC predicts 6 to 12 months.

  12. Jian Graye October 18, 2020

    Director of the CDC stated that a fully distributed vaccine will take 6 to 12 months FROM ITS APPROVAL. Trump wants HERD IMMUNITY, which'll expose seniors. 10% of seniors die from covid while survivors are debilitated. Trump cares more about his resort's profit margins than us seniors!

    This is not reporting. This is mayhem. Good grief. I learned nothing from these fools. They shouldn't be discussing and arguing over the report they should have delivered it succinctly, like professionals. Oh I forgot, it's CNBC.

    Only morons think Covid is not a hoax. Certificate of Vaccination Identification is the endgame. Governments and Big Pharma have NEVER cared about your health and safety. This is about control and fiat currency. Fear is the most effective weapon against the feeble minded and easily duped masses.
