    Covid-19 poll

    Assume 2 things: 1. It will take more than a year for a vaccine to be created, tested and readily available, 2. The economy will be re-started in the knowledge that there will be further deaths due to covid-19

    The poll question is: WHAT PERCENTAGE OF THE GENERAL PUBLIC THAT CONTRACT THE VIRUS WOULD YOU BE WILLING TO LET DIE TO KEEP THE ECONOMY FROM COLLAPSING ?


    1. <= 2%
    2. >2% <= 3%
    3. >3% <= 5%
    4. >5% <= 10%
    5. >10%

    Really need a lower bound of like .25% or less. 2% annual excess deaths would be devastating to the economy, so the question is a false premise anyway.

    I agree in so far as the wording wasn't as good as it could have been. I've now amended it

    Bear in mind the Spanish flu epidemic killed anywhere from 20 to 50 million of the 500 million that contracted it. That's between 4% and 10%.

    What percentage of death is acceptable if the economy collapses and people can't pay for food and necessities.

    Unfortunately the 2 issues cannot be separated. Economy is affected negatively by fear and uncertainty and positively by consumer confidence.

    I have no idea what you are trying to say. Normally I'd suspect you might be trying to insult me, but am not sure because I would think that a person of your stature in the community would have more class than that. I don't want anyone to die from this virus. People that are the most susceptible to this disease should be self quarantining. I was just making a counterpoint to the argument in the original poll.
