    The average age of those dead because of the CV-19 is 81. In South Korea it was about 76.
    The CDC wants you to blindly follow them, so they hide that facts. I'll depend on data from other countries instead of listening to those losers. They are so jealous that someone else comes up with a treatment that they try to tell people to be cautious. They pretend it does not exist.
    Isn't that 3 age groups then? What about people from 51-80?

    Lol...yeah, that's what it is, the CDC is just jealous! Hilarious.

    Its important that young healthy people avoid getting the virus because they can spread it other people who can die if they get it.
    20% of known cases. Most cases are almost certainly not known.

    It says +/-. I left the range open for discussion rather than try to pick an age by myself. I am using the only data available and that does hot include the CDC in the US because they do not release anything. They are afraid that citizens will see they are lying to us.

    I understand that you trust big government. You want the people that can do nothing right to run your healthcare. How foolish.

    The government doesn't run my healthcare. It acts as the insurer.

    The CDC lies to you? How do you figure? Did you read that on facebook?

    It's not really that I trust big government. It's just that I don't buy into the idea that they're out to get me.

    Yet Democrats are promoting more interference by government on healthcare to down right taking it over. Are you denying that?

    Yes the CDC is lying and holding back information that we need to judge our position in the US. As a result we have to rely on foreign data. Maybe you can find CDC data or US data on the victims in the US. I want to not know them by name but I want the age, race, Where they are in my county (not by street address).

    Facebook? No i leave that for left wing clowns like you. I do zero social media.

    Government does nothing well. Even our great military spends much more than is needed. They totally screwed up our public schools. Obama Care destroyed our insurance system that 85% of us were happy with to put another 5% on Medicaid. 10% still remain uninsured and that grew when the penalty was dropped because they just plain do not want what you are selling. If yu think government is your friend then you are a nutcase.

    Now take the new 26 trillion dollar debt and divide it by some 120 million people that actual pay income taxes in April.
    Then tell me that government is not screwing me as a taxpayer!

    The CDC provides data on cases by state and a lot of other data. Not sure why you need to know the race of victims.

    The CDC isn't lying to you and the government isn't out to get you...and you think I'm a nutcase? Lol...

    What are YOU doing to put the fire out?

    No, they aren't out to get you. You're right about that. But where you are wrong, is that you think they actually care about you.
    I assume no government likes me, and I don't have much use for them, but at the end of the day, you are just another number. They don't know you from sh!t.
    So, like most of us that understand this, realize we are basically on our own until this passes.

    yeppers...............there were 30% who had no insurance when Obama took over, and there is still 30% that don't have insurance today.
    Obama did nothing but make matters even worse.
