A little perspective may be helpful. So far, even the worst-hit countries have experienced a per capita mortality rate of less than one-tenth of one percent. Less than a rounding error. Real pandemics kill tens of millions or more. We've permitted ourselves to be stampeded into mindless hysteria by irresponsible reportage. The facts tell a totally different story and if we all could just grow up a little we'd be less inclined to be so silly. And we'd not be causing far greater harm and death than the putative lives we imagine we've "saved." To be clear: 140 million children have missed out on life-saving vaccinations; 250 million are presently starving to death (WHO figures). So far, SARS-COV-2 deaths: still fewer than in a bad flu season (which will kill 650,000 people).
