Covid-19

Covid-19 reproduction strategy is to use kids as carriers by making sure that kids (and other people with a strong immune system) are not getting too sick when they are infected. That gives carriers plenty of time to spread Coronavirus to other people.

That suggests that Covid-19 is, actually, not as deadly as initial reports suggest. Most likely the number of infected people is heavily underreported.

If the number of people infected by Covid-19 is underreported 10x, and the number of people who died from Covid-19 is reported accurately, then Covid-19 mortality is overeported by 10x.

It is possible that Covid-19 mortality is comparable with mortality of a regular influenza (0.2%), but scientists inflated Covid-19 number to 2% by missing underreported infections.
