Fair enough.

Bitcoin is a figment of some computer's imagination. What will happen to this figment if the underlying economy collapses as result of government-induced hysteria ?

Looking back two months later, I see this post received 21/13 votes; that is a lot more than any of the directly bitCoin related posts.

Is there perhaps not a smarter way to address this plague other than mass immuration? Sequestering those who are elderly with underlying conditions, those who test positive, and those who are symptomatic

And black people. Numerous news sources today revealed analysis of data shows African-Americans are spreading the disease in disproportionate numbers.

Due to health neglect, the black community also has higher rates of underlying conditions such as obesity, diabetes, asthma, hypertension and heart disease.

2% of 8 billion people is 160 million people. That'd be 3x the Spanish Flu death toll which was the worst epidemic in modern history

That's a scary thought when you put it like that but we all know that all 8 billion people won't contract it so those numbers are a bit dramatic. We also know that that 2% rate is going to come down as more people contract COVID and recover from it, which most people are. The deaths are in a very select group of people, older people or people with underlying health conditions. The Spanish flu killed a much bigger segment of the population, and strangely enough killed a lot of people between the ages of 20-40. Perfectly healthy people would contract the Spanish for and could die within 24-48hrs. Again, this is not happening with this novel COVID. It's a big difference. We also know COVID has been the most tracked virus in history. We know the reporting of deaths from COVID is extensive and has been under some scrutiny. Those factors would also effect the mortality rate. If we had the kind of reporting and technology that we have now during the Spanish flu who knows what the mortality rate would have been. Definitely much higher though we can say that for certain. Look I'm not trying to be crass, in the grand scheme of things everyone matters of course but to throw numbers out like 160mil is disingenuous. It won't kill that many, it won't even get close. When looking at countries other than the US or Italy, which has been plastered all over the mainstream media, we can see that the mortality rate isn't even close to that number. It's funny what the masses get scared about, and it's funny how the government knows which buttons to push. This contagion button pushing has been very interesting to watch.

The mortality rate is well under 1%.

There is a .11% infection rate in endemic areas. New studies illustrate that COVID-19 infection rate is 2x slower than influenza. The death risk is is well under 1% for 18 years olds and 45 year olds, it is only 75+ years olds where the death risk climbs to well over 1%. However, risk does not equal mortality rate. If you take into account infection rate, than the actual mortaliry rate is less than 0.01%.

we all know that all 8 billion people won't contract it so those numbers are a bit dramatic. We also know that that 2% rate is going to come down as more people contract COVID and recover from it, which most people are. The deaths are in a very select group of people, older people or people with underlying health conditions.

The comparisoon to the Spanish flu is simply fearmobgwring of the highest order. The media and government often uses death risk and propagandizes in such a way that death risk now becomes the mortality rate.

COVID-19 does not kill 18 year olds. They have a 218x probability of dying from life than from COVID-19.

Older people, 75+, if you account for infection rate, a probability of dying of old age of 418 times that of COVID-19.

The reason Spanish Flu killed younger folks, is because of a sepsis like response where the immune system became overwhelmed and started to attack its own host. Not just immunity but the immune response to this flu was too much for the body to handle.

This is NOT HAPPENING WITH COVID-19.

Over 90% of people with COVID-19 will not get symptoms which is another reason why testing everyone is pointless.

And all the PsyOps involved in this COVID-19 narrative illustrate to me at least that they have ulterior motives.

A) to-day there are 3-times as many people B) if it did kill 160 million baby-boomers that would be doing something; that would be a benefit to society. But this gen-x slacker-punk of a virus is not doing that, yet it is used as an excuse to bankrupt the underlying society, the people who work and pay for those handsome cheques and services the baby-boomers receive.

But it shuts down 100% of the economies it touches. It's an economic plague.

This alleged plague didn't shut down anything; criminally insane liberals did

Well yeah I was being facetious. ;-)
