MSNBC Scaremonger: 20 Percent of Americans Could Die of COVID-19
Virologist and MSNBC contributor Dr. Joseph Fair told a TV panel earlier today that if COVID-19 goes widespread in the United States, "we know 80 percent of the population is going to survive."
Well, that's nice.
Currently, COVID-19 has a mortality rate of 3.4%, so where is Fair getting a number three to six times higher? Fair reminded viewers of the "typically 15 to 20 percent rate of mortality for those individuals that are both elderly or have underlying conditions."
