Do You Know the Score?

If you don't read any further, please read conservative Republican Mona Charen's recent column by CLICKING HERE. Then perform a good deed by forwarding it to any one you know who is even considering voting for Donald Trump in November. That would be about the most un-American thing a voter can do!

It seems to me, from what I read and hear, that no more than 20% of those who are infected manifest symptoms, and of that number, only those who do not recover in a week or two on their own are hospitalized. Of that number the percentage who die is about 2% or 3%. That percentage seems to pertain to those showing symptoms requiring hospitalization. If you are looking for a mortality percentage for the far greater number of those testing positive for Covid19, including those without symptoms, the mortality percentage probably would be much, much lower. But we don't have those numbers due to inadequate testing.
Any effort to delay or contaminate that election should be fought vigorously. At a minimum, it should proceed on a "vote by mail" basis. Congress must act on making this possible.
