Just My Hunch

Now, this is just my hunch, and -- but based on a lot of conversations with a lot of people that do this, because a lot of people will have this, and it's very mild.  They will get better very rapidly.  They don't even see a doctor.  They don't even call a doctor.  You never hear about those people.  So, you can't put them down in the category of the overall population in terms of this corona flu and -- or virus.  So you just can't do that.  So, if we have thousands or hundreds of thousands of people that get better just by, you know, sitting around and even going to work -- some of them go to work, but they get better.  And then, when you do have a death, like you have had in the state of Washington, like you had one in California -- I believe you had one in New York -- you know, all of a sudden, it seems like 3 or 4%, which is a very high number, as opposed to -- as opposed to a fraction of 1%.
