I found the information on profound and valuable. It puts the COVID-19 in perspective. Total deaths 9,276 versus 9,943 deaths out of starvation every day!

Upload or share a link to this resource/message/source of information to share it with others.

When we have a wound we put bandage on it to prevent it from getting infected, rather than ask everything which could infect you to stay home. Government needs to take realistic measures and protect high risk population. Asking everyone to stay home is like burying head in the sand.
