mdwest and all,I read today that 80% of U.S. citizens will get the virus. It seems once you have had the virus and recovered that you should be free to travel since you are no longer a carrier but they're doing just the opposite in requiring a negative COVID-19 test. And I guess it means 80% of us won't ever be able to hunt Africa again! This is crazy.
The media and some politicians are using fear to boost viewership and garner influence. however, that stat is not correct. Multiple countries are seeing the majority of their citizens not contracting the disease. (So Korea - 75% have tested negative) Further, the odds of contracting the virus without close contact with a carrier is between 1-2%. Lastly, the mortality is being grossly misrepresented. In Italy, over 90% of the fatalities were to patients who had at least two serious pre-existing health conditions.
