Please help me with some math and how to think this through.

Without question, the Chinese virus will go down in American history as a pivotal event.

An Overton Window.

Still, there is value in trying to put it into perspective.

The Stimulus package is vaguely put at around 3 trillion dollars by the Treasury and the CDC has listed American total deaths from the bug at around 70,000 "related" as of 4 May. Funeral directors in New York have stated the in some areas ALL death certificates are "Covid related". The random antibody testing in NYC now totals around 7,500 in a population of 8.5 million and shows that 20%ish are positive (some areas are 80% +). 8.5mil/7.5k is not statistically of any value. A meat packing plant in St. Joe MO showed 380+ (more than half the staff) and all were completely asymptomatic.

The vent crisis is now showing that once a cormorbid patient is placed on life support that the chance that they will come off is little or none. The vents have not saved many that were dying anyway.

World wide data shows that healthy people are realistically at little or no risk. Healthy children are at essentially at no risk and that most healthy people don't even know that they have been infected.

So, it is fair to say that nobody knows what they are talking about or dealing with.

If we take the Stimulus package alone at 3 trillion and 70k "related" deaths we get.

3,000,000,000,000/70,000 = $42.9 million per "related" deaths and these almost all are folks with diabetics, heart disease, COPD, obesity, immunocompromised, old age etc...

Factor in that within the first quarter of 2020 the stock marked crashed to under 19,000 and the 22 trillion dollar American economic machine came to a stop the cost are significantly higher, probably by a full level of magnitude.

That's a whole lot.

History will show a number of things.

1. This mess is due to the Chinese.

2. The bug is more contagious than anyone expected.

3. The bug is not nearly as lethal as anyone expected.

4 It was a huge mistake to shut down the country and treat South Dakota the same as
New York.

5. The Constitution of the United States is at real danger from both without and
within.

6. We've all been scammed big time and things will never be the same.
