looking on the bright side

if the CV mortality rate among +70 cohort is 15% and 8% 60-70,  as has been suggested, and the infection rate hits 50%+, there will no longer be a future SS and Medicare "crisis."

Although Very Serious People would need to move on to a new (or old) problem, like deficits when Democrats are in the WH.

Might also be a problem that the youngest remaining presidential candidate is 71.

Thinking about that on account of how back many years ago I was a Very Serious Person and would go on about SS and Medicare obligations and a friend used to say, don't worry about it, plenty of time for an epidemic.

In fact it might be me in the mortality statistics- watching my wife battle the flu recently I realize it all gets to be a whole 'nuther game at some point. I'd apparently acquired immunity to that strain (which the vaccine didn't get) at some point or the other. Probably back a long time ago when there were sows farrowing or something and you just got through it.

But my first point of interest upon hearing that the new bug had pandemic potential was to learn what the age related mortality stats were.  All things being equal, something like the 1918 flu that killed young people would be much, much worse.
