People are terrified by the number of deaths caused by Coronavirus. However, this horror can be controlled with a simple comparison of the number of deaths to the world’s population. In Canada, 59 people lost their life due to the virus, making it only 1% of all the confirmed cases. In the United States, a maximum death rate among the high-risk group (ages 65 and older) was 38%. The death rate falls dramatically with the decrease of age; people between the ages of 55 to 64 had only 1% to 3% cases of death, less than 1% for people between the ages of 20 to 54, and no death cases for 19 years old and less.
Whether it’s good or bad news, the end of the world is not here yet. Instead of spending quarantine worrying about wrong fact, use this time to finish your Netflix library, learn how to cook, get a hobby and prepare your goals and dreams for 2021. It can’t be worse than 2020.
