Since when does 0.3 percent fatality rate warrant calling something an epidemic, let alone a "pandemic"?

Testing for and finding coronavirus antibodies only proves you've recently been sick and your body's immune system is functioning as it should. It does NOT mean you're a menace to society as the media would have us believe. The elderly, babies, and people with weak immune systems are the only ones at risk. THEY should be the only ones keeping their distance and wearing masks and gloves.
