Yeah, that seems to be a possibility. On the other hand, the cases have been rising in Georgia for a long time without a shift in mortality. I think the key is that its been largely kept out of nursing homes. So, yes, younger people affected but not in such a way that the older folks can't be protected (maybe).
I think there's a chance this will keep moving around, so that any state or country or region will have flair ups, until many of them have roughly similar positives/herd immunity. Mortality might fluctuate pretty widely, based upon whether a jurisdiction was overwhelmed for a time (Italy, NYC, etc.) or had a more modest caseload that didn't tax resources.
I wonder if the virus could be mutating, so that the current outbreaks are less lethal. I've been wondering that awhile and Nomad's post, early today, including a link to a story which refers to that. I don't know if it's credible - I'm not familiar with the source. If it really is possible, I'd like to see a lot more.
I really like the way my state and county has handled things, given the uncertainties and tough balancing needed. We may simply be lucky or they may have been more to it than that. There's complete dissonance between life here and what's being showed on the media. I think most places in rural America are just like here, but that's just a hunch.
All of us have tales to tell about 2020. It's been a ride.
