Cancer, heart disease, diabetes, stroke, chronic lower respiratory diseases, alzheimer's, other dementias, and other diseases are far more serious than COVID-19 for the vast majority of people.

In 2018, around 610,000 Americans died from cancer, 160,000 from chronic lower respiratory diseases, 146,000 from stroke, 121,000 from Alzheimer's, 84,000 from diabetes — about 170,000 from accidents, according to official numbers that may or may not be accurate.
