continue to be alive only because humans have unlocked what is basically magic to go tell god to shove it for 2 more decades.

>Uses religion in an argument on why people are overreacting to the Corona.

Here's a bright idea. There was no person who created us with the intention of a ticking timer. The goal of all species on Earth is to survive and reproduce. So you can take your magic llama and shove that straight up his ass. Oh wait, he thinks people should be stoned to death for that. My bad.

That it kills seniors more is frankly irrelevant, the flu kills even more of them than it does, and that's despite having a moderately effective vaccine. 

Keep fearmongering though, I'm sure people panicking and shutting down society is totally better for everyone including the patients, and not actually just magnifying the damage being done by overreacting like morons. 

The flu only kills more because more people have been infected by the flu.

According to the CDC: https://www.cdc.gov/flu/about/burden/2017-2018.htm, in 2018 approximately 5945690 individuals that could be considered "seniors" were infected with the flu, with about 50903 deaths. This is a mortality rate of about .0086 among seniors, or about .86%. Data from 2019 shows a mortality rate of .0083 as well. Currently, the COVID-19 has a mortality rate of approximately 3.6% for individuals in their 60s, which can go up to 15% if you're above 80. I include the 60s part because that's the closest to "senior" data that I could find. 

 

 

Off topic but when you present an argument with this many holes in it, maybe you should shut up.

I havent gotten a flu shot in like, 9 years ?‍♂️

While the rest of us are being taken out by corona, dis man is gonna be taken out by the flu....

Just joking of course. Please stay healthy, everyone.

Unlike the flu which has existed for a long time and for which we have studied extensively and developed vaccines against, COVID-19 is a new virus. We do not know much about it yet. The real danger of this virus is that it is extremely contagious. With the flu, humans also have a herd immunity. We have developed greater resistance/vaccines over the years, and the few who don't have resistance/gotten vaccinated are protected because the rest of us are more protected and less likely to pass it on. That is not the case for COVID-19, which, again, is a new virus that we don't have much resistance against.

Better to be cautious at this stage. Even if the symptoms are not as bad for the average, healthy individual as the media may suggest, who likes being sick?

After all the multis were banned, Ming is down to 26 members and 82K score. Most of the remaining members are out of range of most of KT. I guess this 'war' is over folks!

As world is in panic of the Coronavirus. Our members in quarantine who don't want any conflict while we dealing with some bigger than a Micro Alliance. Knights Templar searching for the Coronavirus? You have come to glorious birth country of the virus. We will hug and cough on every KT member trying to interrupt our quarantine time.

Hail Corona!

I think you'll look back on this and wish you had chosen a different OOC reason for this IC announcement.
