Some interesting points. One question, though: Where does this 0.08% death rate come from?

The US has around 2 million confirmed cases and approximately 130,000 deaths. That's 6.5%.

Clearly there are many unconfirmed cases; is there a model suggesting what this number is, somewhere?

To be 0.08%, from 130,000 deaths the number of cases would need to be 162,500,000 which is just shy of half the US population.

I've not seen anything anywhere that suggests that half of any population has had the disease. If they were, they would be approaching the 70% infection-rate required for herd immunity far more rapidly than is being discussed anywhere that I've seen.
