    Re: Covid-19, Part VII - Staying On Topic...

    Cambridge University Study. Is that good enough?

    In testimony before U.S. Congress on March 11, 2020, members of the House Oversight and Reform Committee were informed that estimated mortality for the novel coronavirus was ten-times higher than for seasonal influenza. Additional evidence, however, suggests the validity of this estimation could benefit from vetting for biases and miscalculations. The main objective of this article is to critically appraise the coronavirus mortality estimation presented to Congress. Informational texts from the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are compared with coronavirus mortality calculations in Congressional testimony. Results of this critical appraisal reveal information bias and selection bias in coronavirus mortality overestimation, most likely caused by misclassifying an influenza infection fatality rate as a case fatality rate. Public health lessons learned for future infectious disease pandemics include: safeguarding against research biases that may underestimate or overestimate an associated risk of disease and mortality; reassessing the ethics of fear-based public health campaigns; and providing full public disclosure of adverse effects from severe mitigation measures to contain viral transmission.

    How did America cause the world to panic?

    The world was panicking when Italy was hit so hard.

    That seems like revisionist history.

    I don’t even know why I’m engaging. 200,000 dead Americans with lockdowns. But yeah, it’s all a hoax.
    What would you say.....ya do here?

    The "world" panicked when it hit Italy -- cause Italy's white. I love to point this out to the woke.

    The Covid death rate -- even if you accept the number -- is on par with big flu deaths that didn't entail Big Brother measures.

    86 deaths in San Francisco.

    Thousands of lives ruined.

    As my son pointed out, SF corruption got buried by Covid-19.

    And that's been replicated worldwide. It's a get-out-of-jail card for corrupt Pols, which is a most Pols. A GIFT!

    It's kind of genius, all these state and local pols grasping onto Covid to hide their game.

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/a...nia-study.html

    Researchers found that, on average, a person who has a single contact with an infected individual has a one in about 4,000 chance of becoming sick, without using preventive measures such as social distancing or wearing a mask.

    For the middle-aged, the risk of hospitalization is nearly one in a million and the risk of death is almost one in 20 million.

    It's from the guy who once insisted you'll choke on carbon dioxide if you wear a mask. Sounds like he's mad that his mayor has done a good job at this.

    “The research letter from Harvard found that among 3,222 young adults hospitalized with Covid-19, 88 died — about 2.7 percent. 1/5 required intensive care...The study “establishes that Covid-19 is a life-threatening disease in people of all ages,”

    I know this isn't the flu, but those numbers (88 deaths in young adults) really are flu-like, no?

    And this is probably not something you have to deal with, but if you went to work you would see that things are taken seriously there. Most of the places I go take your temperature, screen you, and mandate masks 100% of the time. Two of them have installed UV filters in the duct work. One has an outside company on call to isolate and sanitize with hand-cleaning and misting if anyone is even suspected of testing positive. They have hired engineers and scientists as advisors to develop real plans. Not everyone works from home or live’s in mom’s basement, and they are going to great expense to deal with this and survive at the same time. But hey, let’s have high school football and grandma in the stands!
    All of those precautions are great, but, according to Fauci today, 40-50% of all transmissions have taken place through asymptomatic people. At the same time, however, he also said that transmissions have mostly taken place during "events", not from isolated individuals, one to another, even though that's the only way someonen in a care facility could have come in contact with the virus. There are no "events" in nursing homes.

    I don’t know the age breakdown for the flu, but this article is rebuking the notion that younger people are immune to Covid, which is what some people have been promoting.

    Fair enough. They're clearly not immune even if the risk is very low for them.

    Why does it matter if the risk is low or not? If you get it, you can spread it and that's the real risk to everybody.
