In 20 years time the virus will kill off 0.6% of today's population but the bad news is that this year we've had nearly 137 million births already!
From my perspective the virus is not going to make much of a dent, but all those jabs and endless booster shots may just do the trick?
If you let the virus spread uncontrollably and, as a result, the positive cases get a dramatic increase, then the death rate will definitely not the same as the one you claim.
The death rate in an overloaded medical system which is unable to take care of severe patients is definitely different from the rate in a normal system, when the situation is still under control.
Human survives the diseases and disasters better than animal not because they have superior natural immunity or physical traits. But because they know that diseases and disasters are bad and must be avoided, and they mobilize their social and economical forces to prevent it and to cure it if things happen.
The success of a human is determined by his social status, social relationship, and socio-economical situation of the era he is living in, not determined by his genes or innate traits.
There are countless examples show that the least expensive and most effective way to treat a disease is to prevent it from happening from the beginning.
And last but not least, the Western Big Corps are sh*t does not mean the whole notion of pandemic control is wrong.
The wrong thing is that the socio-economical resources is being mobilized for the profit of the Big Corps, not for the common interest of the working people, including the interest of being healthy, being protected from the diseases and illnesses, and being able to economically survive during the pandemic.
