I went to a walk in clinic during all of this to get swabbed for possible flu and they won’t swab for flu. “Getting swabbed causes you to cough. If you have COVID19 then you will have coughed that virus into this environment.”

I see the logic, but there is something fucking stupid about not being able to get swabbed for flu during flu season. I should have asked them if they would do it out in the parking lot, lol.

COVID-19 Coronavirus Pandemic stats are interesting. To date, less than four-thousandths of one percent (0.003.5%) of the US population has contracted it; six ten-thousandths of one percent (0.0006%) of the US population has died from it. Italy’s death rate from the virus is 1.7%.

The Republic of San Marino is a 24 sq. mi. micronation surrounded by Italy. It has the highest fatality rate (of the countries listed) at 6.5%.
