Not too many governors are 100% responsible.  Ours is killing businesses and is being too timid.  You say yours is killing people.  There must be some middle ground.

Maybe a middle ground but I don't see it.  There are 3 prongs.  Lives, business and people's choices.  If businesses open too much or too fast, they kill off their customers.  If people refuse to cooperate, you kill off people.  If people die, businesses will not survive because they have no employees.

The death rate is unbelievably low. No one expected that,

I like the awareness t shirt / bumper sticker idea: "Real Men Wear Masks".

But maybe a combination of public shaming and emphasis that 80% of all cases are asymptomatic (or pre-symptomatic) spreaders.

Must have just gotten lucky.

But no one expected the debilitating long term symptoms from many who have recovered, or the very long recovery period.

Depends on your point of view. 
 

While about 0.1 percent of people who got the flu died in the US last year, according to the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention, the coronavirus' death rate is currently about 4.9 percent, based on the reported totals of cases and deaths. That makes the coronavirus' average death rate 49 times higher than that of the flu.

No, and they still aren’t reporting much about after effects of Covid.  They also don’t say what underlying conditions those people had.

The numbers are actually closer to 1% when they started testing more.  The more cases they uncover, the lower the percentage drops.

If it's your family burying a member, it's academic as to percentages when we all know many cases could have and should have been prevented.
