150,000 deaths and climbing. The worst of the worst flu season has only 60,000 in the US, and that's during "normal" country operations with school open, all sporting events on a full schedule, movie theaters packed, etc. We locked down parts of the country for COVID-19 and it's still 2 1/2 times more deadly than the worse flu. Imagine what the death toll would have been had we not acted?
And that's just the mortality rate. We really don't know the full, long-term health effects, but according to the link here (https://www.advisory.com/daily-briefing/2020/06/02/covid-health-effects), they deal with the heart, lungs, and blood clots. People who survive could be dealing with permanent loss of lung capacity, heart conditions, and the threat of clotting, which can be really dangerous. And this effects all age groups.
Not sure how anyone can call COVID-19 "not dangerous."
