Did you know the CDC was using both positive and antibody tests as the sum of new infections? Story came out in the Atlantic.
% months... how many died of flu in same time period?
In 1968, H3N2 killed over 100K in US. Nobody blinked.
And there were only 200 million peeps.
and we only had network TV.
Some are questioning how COVID-19 is being listed as a cause of death, when there were other contributing health problems. I can understand that, as it seems there are inconsistencies in how various cities/counties/states choose to report the data.
However, it appears that the NCHS is currently putting excess deaths going back to February at between 115,000 and 120,000 (has to be estimated, as the reporting lags by weeks in some cases). Is this number also being questioned? Do you believe that fake death records/certificates are being generated, leading to those numbers?
If not, then what did kill those people? Is there another virus making the rounds right now?
Every number should be questioned.
The only consistent truths I've seen are the risk factors of age and underlying conditions. Beyond that I see a lot of horseshit being flung around with the occasional outlier trotted out to terrify the masses.
Interesting CDC chart.
thank you for enlightening us to this horrible tradgedy that has befallen our fellow man.
"Actual Cases [NY] (1.7 million: 10 times the number of confirmed cases)"
I know your stance on this thing, but 100,000 people dying in two months doesn’t matter to you? And yes I know lots of people die all the time, I’m talking about the virus specifically, no big deal?
<—-not taking the bait.
It wasn’t bait, it was just a question.
We`re back to two months....
In summary, no I’m not concerned.
Let’s go back 5years
the reality is theres a large group of boomers who are aging out right now. Along comes a bad ass flu strain and helps. Thats nature, GFL changing it.
I scheduled to get an antibodies test, going to get drawn next week.....curious to see what comes of it.
I heard the other day that the average age of death from COVID is older than the average life expectancy age.
Don’t know. I’m not the one posting numbers.
If my life depended on it, I’d say far less. I’d also say that when you factor in the actual number of people that have asymptomatically had it and were never tested, the actual morbidity rate of this will be far less than the flu. I believe it’s highly contagious, but not very deadly all said and done.
With over 90% having any number of pre-existing medical conditions, poor health and older in age.
Oh and 99.99% survival.
Amazing how all of a sudden over the exact same time frame, flu deaths have almost disappeared.
Why is this?
I agree, nothing to see here. Overblown to say the least.
Depends. How much unemployment spiff you still got coming?
Sending you my number, got the girls this weekend so if you’re cool with the dueling dynamos coming along I could swing by and peek anytime.
Don’t forget to wear your mask.
Perspective is important. Assuming the actual deaths attributed to covid are accurate. Which in reality they are over stated. So the percentages are even less.
As of May 19th/20th, 2020, 323,603 people have died from the CCP-Covid-19 virus. The current population of the world is approximately 7,700,000,000. 1% of the worlds population is 77,000,000. That means that .004% or 4/1,000ths of 1% of the people in the world have died, so far, of Covid.
The current population of the US is 328,500,000 and, so far, 100,000 Americans have died. 1% of the US Population is 3,285,000. That means .02% or 2/100ths of 1% of Americans have died of Covid.
And yet some continue to believe it’s a huge deal. Idiots unite.
