Of the number of tested, that becomes 0.15% - that's only the number tested. As more tests are administered, who knows how those numbers change, but out of a general population of 28 million, that's a rate of 0.00032% rate. Depends on how one wants to structure the numbers on spreading fear. Do I think it's a nasty bug? I do indeed - especially in dense population areas where those percentages would be higher than the overall average. Even at a week away from turning 69 years old, I fear the destruction to the economy and delivery infrastructure more than the "bug" itself. JMHO.
