Plus, as Scrooge would say, "get rid of the surplus population".


In the US, the death toll is 200,000. Now consider this:   the detected case count is about seven million. Seven million is about 2% of the population.

Now . . . . extrapolate ! Even if it's off by a damn order of magnitude in case count we're still looking at an additional 800,000 dead! I doubt the error's nearly that large and the horror all the greater for it.

It boggles my mind that any politician (let alone any human being) could allow this to be politicized as we hear the CDC change its story, on a daily basis it seems, so as not to offend!   Another casualty of the unthinkably politicized pandemic is confidence in the CDC and similar (formerly) reputable institutions throughout the world.
