According to the Johns Hopkins map, currently of the 321,762 confirmed cases in the United States, 9,132 have died. That is 2.8% of the resolved confirmed cases. There has been 15,044 individuals who have recovered. That is 4.7% of the resolved confirmed cases. That leaves 92.5% of the confirmed cases unresolved. Keep in mind, that there are many unconfirmed cases that will never be quantified by us. Until the confirmed cases left unresolved drops we will have a difficult time really knowing what the true mortality rate is. We still truly have no idea how many people will be infected. The H1N1 flu infected 60.8 million Americans, with around 15K deaths. We are already approaching that mortality number with the coronavirus even though we have not come close to having that number of people infected
Hopefully there have been so many unconfirmed, and resolved cases that we won’t have any more deaths, but be prepared for it. Since none of knows what is truly happening, and what will happen, there is much insecurity, and anxiety. Everyone’s plans are on hold. We are in a type of limbo.
One thing we can be sure of is our Savior. Have you repented and put your faith in Christ Jesus? God is sovereign, and in control of all things. Not a sparrow falls outside of His will. If we die, we will be with Christ. If we live, we live for Christ. We who have been justified by Christ, have peace with God. We are secure in His strength. In that security, and peace, we can be a blessing to others.
Pray for God’s will to be done, and pray for Him to be glorified, even if that means that we die. There is not sting in our death, there is no victory for death, when a saint goes home. There is no condemnation for one of God’s adopted children. Seek His kingdom first, and place your hope in Christ alone.
