November 20 - 2020 Unfortunately, the COVID crisis is getting worse. However, my sister-in-law told me to emphasize the survival rate instead of the infection and death rate – this could be more positive:
0-19 years 99.997%
20-49 years 99.980%
50-69 years 99.500%
Over 70 94.600%
Perhaps this way we can reduce panic and anxiety?
