I think we will see less transmission in rural areas. We are just naturally spread out. This is just my unscientific opinion. HOWEVER, this is so under-tested and under-reported. I always multiply the numbers I see by 100 to help me see a better picture.

Multiply the number of cases by a 100 or maybe 200 who knows for sure! I have seen estimates as high as 70 percent of the country will end up getting covid-19 at some point. I hope and pray for the best for all of us.

crowhillrob, what is the scientific basis of multiplying the # of cases by 100 or 200 or are you just helping the reader with mathematics. Unless you are a health department person, medical doctor or other professional, it is unprofessional to put out such a multiplier without scientific basis in these trying times. You quoted "and I have seen estimates as high as 70%" appears to be scientific, but not supported. In these times, fear mongering is not necessary.

It is a case of "Mass Hysteria" and much of the population is thinking the worst. In my humble opinion, remaining level headed and using common sense will prevail. While who knows how much of the news is being blown out of proportion to scare the public into submission....

we will have to reach a minimum of 50% infection rate to reach herd immunity and I think that will come before a vaccine is available.

Good Grief!
I'm finally beginning to figure out where the
Bernie supporters are coming from

I too think the reactions are all out of proportion to the genuine threat. 98+% of people make a good recovery, and I suspect the mortality rate is lower than currently estimated because the number of infections is very likely far higher than the number of confirmed cases. And I think we need to consider the economically vulnerable as well as the medically vulnerable. Maintaining a level head and being prudent is called for right now. I am very glad I have chosen to live in the country.

I am not fear mongering. Such a small number of people have been tested and many will have little or no symptoms. I don't believe anyone knows the true numbers. When we see more recovered people who now have immunity to covid 19 we will have a much better situation. Most of us will be just fine. PS I am a libertarian that has voted mostly for republicans and never for a democrat.
