As of last afternoon there are allegedly 17,038 positive coronavirus tests in the United States (confirmed cases.)
There are 330,000,000 (330 million), more or less, US citizens.
That means the odds of someone having it are, according to the US government, approximately 1 in 19,000.
Now think about this a bit. We’re told where we’re near the top of the exponential curve and it’s going to explode in our face. If that statement is true then yes, it could get quite bad.
Can that possibly be true?
I’ll take the under on that.
