I was not posturing or overreacting. I posted the statistics known at this time. If you prefer to take a laissez faire approach to handling the virus do that on your own. For now I think Trump is doing a good job handling the situation. As far as the other things that kill people, they are all caused by human choice and behavior. If you want to go back to Prohibition days and also make cigarettes illegal, then good luck with putting that into effect. I suppose you could add soda taxes ala Mike Bloomberg to fight obesity. Fortunately, via education people are making better choices now than they did in the past. The virus is not the same as the flu. It is deadlier. We should respond rationally and not panic but don't sugarcoat things.
