US Must Follow Korea’s Example and Increase its Coronavirus Testing to Find True Extent of Disease and to Calm Populace
As The Gateway Pundit reported earlier today. The mortality rate for 83% of the affected countries is below 1%.
The disease hits the elderly the hardest. Doctors are not seeing the same numbers with children.
Regardless, the media continues to cover the virus as the worst pandemic in modern history.
In order to calm the nerves of the populace the federal government must increase its testing numbers.
Eric Klein at Lifeboat Foundation:
The coronavirus is on the march worldwide and there will not be a vaccine in the foreseeable future. So our only line of defense is the quarantine.
A quarantine CAN NOT be properly implemented if you don’t know who has the virus so the United States must follow South Korea’s example and do massive testing for the virus. This would also end up calming the populace as people would no longer have to guess how bad the pandemic was in their neighborhood.
Another benefit of massive testing is that the true Case Fatality Rate (CFR) will be exposed as people with mild forms of the virus will be included in the totals. The actual CFR rate is likely between 0.1% and 0.6%. This lower CFR will also calm the public.
