For the deadly (but mysterious) virus with a 99% survival rate
Your post is riddled with inaccuracies but I'll start with this one, since so many people try to trivialize COVID-19.

The mortality rate is closer to 3% than to 1%; to be precise, 1,845,300/62,051,251, or 2.97%.

Of course, by looking at only the mortality rate, you are ignoring the debilitating effects on survivors. These are now quite well documented, and extensive. Note that the numbers you see online of patients "recovered" from COVID-19 are simply those who weren't killed by the disease. That doesn't mean that they are all healthy and happy, having returned to the lives they had pre-COVID-19.
