“Not to say anything is often better than speaking too much or saying something inappropriate.”
Unfortunately, this does not apply anymore as you need to speak up to be heard. This works when people are looking at each other and reading people’s minds by evaluating facial and body expressions. These days people do not look at each other. They tend to look at their iPhones most of the time. That means that unless you speak you will not be heard. Better yet, you should email or text. Instead of speaking in public, you should consider an email broadcast or a social media post.
Another thing - people’s attention spans are getting shorter and shorter. Instead of long articles, your message should be very short and to the point. However, you should make sure you send out that message often. Things have changed. What was considered a virtue is no longer relevant. As a business owner, I always try to be up-front and easy to understand. I am still not very good at it.
Anyways, my point today is that if you want people to know your business, you need to communicate with the tools people use. That is not a speech, it must be digital and short.
I just listed the facts based on the public record. No judgement here.
As of today, we recorded 210,000 Coronavirus confirmed cases in the world with over 8,000 deaths since last December. Almost 83,000 people have recovered. The fatality rate is about 3.8%.
In the US, as of March 18, 9:00am, there are 7,512 confirmed cases with 115 deaths. That is fatality rate of 1.5%. Sp far only 106 people has recovered and released from the hospital.
Death rate by age is another concern. Here are the current numbers;
80+ years 14.8%
70-79 years 8.0%
60-69 years 3.6%
50-59 years 1.3%
40-49 years 0.4%
30-39 years 0.2%
20-29 years 0.2%
2—19 years 0.2%
0-9 years 0.0%
Compare to Influenza
This fatality rate is one of the highest among the virus infection. Average Influenza fatality rate is 0.1%. In the US, 19 million people got flu and 180,000 people had to be hospitalized in 2019. Out of that 10,000 people died. That is a fatality rate of 0.05%.
No opinion here. I just listed the numbers I found on the net. What do you think. about Coronavirus based on those facts. (Unless those facts I listed are not correct.)
