Do note those who have died are people around 75+ years old. COVID is to take into account, but it's nowhere as lethal as other viruses mankind has dealt with before.The problem is that hospitals soon get submerged and do not have enough equipment to accommodate everyone and they end up refusing anyone who's not in a critical condition (regardless of the sickness or physical condition) and the doctors end up picking those who have a better chance of survival and just watch the others die right in front of them. Oh, you've got cancer ? You'll have to wait a couple months because this is really not a good time to flush your immune system down the toilets. Broken arm ? Sit it out.
That's what this virus is bringing to you, this is not one puny virus that's only targeting the weak so why should we care, this is the whole system that doesn't have enough equipment to accommodate everyone and anything at the same time. Not enough spots in the ICU, not enough mechanical ventilators for everyone. This is not the flu because the flu doesn't need all that to save you once you catch it and you're a person at risk. That's why Italy is clocking up a hundred deaths per day. That's coming to Spain, and French hospitals are already seeing it coming from a distance.
Every country is becoming a war zone / third world country hospital that simply doesn't have what it needs to handle all the sick and the wounded.
Take it seriously and don't spread it to the people at risk that are going to destroy your hospitals.
If I struggled to the end of my determination, to the end of my way of life with my followers, if the result is ruin, then this ruin is inevitable. Grieve. Shed tears. But you cannot regret.
