"And yet the fatality rate is less than 1 percent.  Y is it that the mainstream media never talks about this?"

The Press do talk about it, but it really is irrelevant.

What is more relevant is the rate at which covid will kill our sick and elderly relatives. We're talking a 10 to 20% CFR.

Perhaps you have no-one vulnerable in your own family, but most of us do which is why we should take every precaution not to kill them.

Alas I M one of the vulnerable.  My name is on The List for a vaccine.

Yes U R correct it's the elderly who R dying from this virus...more than any other group.  

So then THAT is where the attention should go NOT to the entire population right now.  

America must Open up just like our ancestors did with their pandemics.  Between 20-50 Million died worldwide from the Spanish Flu in 1918...675K in the USA.  What makes us think that somehow COVID is that much different from the previous pandemics?  It strikes where it wants and we have to live and die with that reality.

No, limiting the spread of the virus  amongst the whole population protects the old and the vulnerable.

And so it goes:  one problem after the other...now it's all about who gets the vaccine 1st.

Sigh.

We've had a few LuLus for presidents I would remind U...GW Bush being the most recent.  He served TWO terms.  He & Cheney got us involved in TWO unnecessary wars resulting in millions of Innocents deaths.

"now it's all about who gets the vaccine 1st."

Don't think it is. It's not a race. It's an attempt to find a vaccine that works and in the case of the Oxford vaccine, one that the world can afford, so that this pandemic can end.

I wasn't referring to race so much as age/profession/work.

Since humans can kill viruses doesn't that rather confuse the issue?

Right, because we nailed the cure for the common cold so long ago.
