Mortality rates will vary by area/nation. Medical care is not the same in all areas. Secondary infection is a second issue. If it gets established here we have some populations which will be affected more than others. Our homeless are not in prime health so they will have a higher rate of death. Druggies and alcoholics again have health issues/weakened immune systems. The virus could have some benefits for us. I would suggest that if the virus hits us, it would be prudent not to stop and give the corner pan handler cash. Might be a good idea to avoid mass transit systems. I would look at the death rate of China as a parallel to our nation it we get hit.
