    its calculated that 250k-500k people will die of flu ww

    so far there are 240k coronovirus deaths.. and we are in may.

    lets check at the end of the year.. and see which one is deadlier.

    but even if only 1000 died a year... it increases the probabalities of death.. because those numbers go on top of the flu and any other diseases.

    People who do risky jobs even in the best of times, are used to making certain calculated risks. For them there isn't a question of whether or not they will take the risk but how they can get their job done as safely as possible.

    I think in the last month we've been so bombarded with Covid19 horror stories, that we've become a bit desensitized to it. Most of us are sick of being cooped up and if we aren't in high risk group, we are willing to take our chances.

    Since in this case, the enemy is unseen, certain taxi drivers and others who are used to real time dangers, are probably finding it easy to go on about their business and hope for the best. It seems to me that they could at least wear a mask.How hard is that to do?

    Unfortunately, people still have to get around. Some will require the services of a taxi driver.

    However, a taxi driver is in danger just like other essential people like health care workers and people working in supermarkets. So, a taxi driver should be wearing a mask at least.

    looking for reasonable responses!

    For this pre-qualifier, who decides what is and what is not a reasonable response?

    I took it for granted that you knew what a percentage was and why it matters.

    One neat blue dog says it okay. One epidemiologist says it's not. That don't make you 50% right.

    1: strawman, that's not the percentage I was talking about

    2: no, it's hardly just me who's realized that

    As far as symptoms and mortality go, this is the normal flu under a different name

    67,000 US dead as of May 4.

    Trump's own administration projects 3000 US dead per day within a month:

    So the death count will likely blow past 100,000 in the US in just a couple of weeks, and still not anywhere near the peak.

    I weep for the willful ignorance of people, whose selfish actions will prolong the crisis and cause hundreds of thousands of preventable deaths..

    People who use taxis do not have cars. Public transit is on a limited schedule making using a bus harder
