Reply to "Coronavirus 2019"

If you take the annual death rate from the worst flu season in the last decade (2017-2018 = 61,000 deaths), that's about 167 people per day.  If the Covid death rate drops to that level (the current 7 day average, per the CDC, is 347), then I can envision people arguing that since Covid is no longer any worse than the flu (death-wise) that we should handle it the way we do the flu - which means basically just go live your lives and not worry anymore.
