Skip to comments.Association of American Physicians and Surgeons: 98% Of People Who Get COVID-19 Fully Recover!
Posted on 04/05/2020 9:03:33 AM PDT by USA Conservative
There are now only nine states in America that are not under stay-at-home orders by their governors.
Utah, Wyoming, North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Iowa, Oklahoma, Arkansas,, and South Carolina are now the only states where residents are not under orders to only leave their homes for essential purposes.
The contrast is the starkest in five states Arkansas, Iowa, Nebraska, North Dakota,, and South Dakota where there are no such orders in place, either in major cities or statewide. Another four had partial restrictions issued locally in certain cities or counties, the New York Times reports.
Is this the right thing to do at this moment? Well, the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons thinks that this is the best thing we can do at the moment.
The only way to effectively combat the disease from a practical standpoint (other than herd immunity) is to shield those at high risk until the virus has run its course through the country. Patients with significant underlying health conditions (cancer, lung disease, immune deficiency disorders) and those over the age of 65 should isolate themselves to the best of their abilities the Association Of America Physician and Surgeons reported.
Martin Dubravec who is an Allergist/Clinical Immunologist Allergy and Asthma Specialist wrote for the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons:
Of all the deaths reported in the United States as of today, only 2 have been in patients under 18 years of age. Currently, our death rate (deaths/confirmed cases) has been as high as 2.3% and as low as 1.1% over the past 2 weeks. The Presidents COVID-19 Taskforce estimated that as many as 1/1000 New Yorkers may have the virus. If this were projected to the entire United States (population 328,239,523), then the total number of COVID-19 would be approximately 328,239 and deaths from COVID-19 (1.8% death rate) at 5,909. Even if this ends up being wrong by 1,000 percent, the death rate would still be 59,000, i.e., within the range of the estimates for influenza deaths. You can look at it in another way. 98% of people who get COVID-19 fully recover!
As of today (March 29, 2020) there are 123,828 confirmed cases and 2229 deaths (1.8% death rate) from COVID-19 in the United States. Compare that with the influenza estimates so far this year: 29,000 deaths! And the flu season is not yet over, with the CDC estimating as many as 59,000 will die of influenza by May of this year.
Americans at this time are seemingly eager to exchange their freedom for what they believe to be security and safety. What they dont realize is if this is allowed to continue, they will lose their security, safety, and their freedom.
What will happen with the next epidemic? Will we do this for the next outbreak of flu? Or Strep? Or drug overdoses? What type of precedent will this set?
Federal and state leaders are using bad public health policy to promote even worse regulation. Several have remarked that this epidemic offers those who wish to subdue the population an excellent way to see what works and how long it takes to corral people into almost total submission; its taking about a month.
If this government-ordered shutdown continues for much more than another week or two, the human cost of job losses and bankruptcies will exceed what most Americans imagine. This wont be popular to read in some quarters, but federal and state officials need to start adjusting their anti-virus strategy now to avoid an economic recession that will dwarf the harm from 2008-2009.
Much of the world economy has shuddered to a halt. In the United States alone, a record 3.3 million people filed for unemployment benefits in late March. President Donald Trump once mused about lifting pandemic restrictions by mid-April to prevent more economic damage, but ultimately settled on extending federal advice to maintain physical distancing through the end of April.
Trumps decision, however, has only put off the question of when, exactly, cities and states should begin to ease up on distancing orders. If you keep the shutdown going for 2 months more than we need to, thats just an unbelievably costly mistake. What do you think? Scroll down to leave a comment below.
Fauci has made everyone "just a number".
MY 72 year old chain smoking nrighbor recovered by sleeping for 5 days with NO medicine. Slept and drank water.
Wait until May comes and the weather gets really warm. It will be the death of this horrific virus.
RE: 98% Fully recover.
What about the 2%?
Considering that there are millions of cases worldwide, that would still amount to tens of thousands, perhaps, hundreds of thousands of deaths.
Ive been thinking of retiring to Arkansas. Good to see them on that list. My Mom worked for Lockheed Martin there and I fell in love with the place over years of visiting her. Not an easy group to kill off from what I could tell.
The Panic Porn media cant stand this
Do not believe Texas is shut down.
I have said from day one tihis would be over mid May
Looking at the actual CDC Data, If you start the 2020 Flu Season in December 2019, then between that date and March 28, 2020, there have been 62,143 deaths from influenza and pneumonia (the standard the CDC uses to report "flu deaths."
I dont give a flip about world wide. I care about the US
1 death out of every 50 people is unacceptable.
And it’s not clear that they “fully recover”. They recover from the virus but may have lasting lung damage.
We’re not going to lay down and not fight this thing.
That is, unless the way to fight this it to lay down in our homes.
And I am not even what you would call a shopper!
Any particular spot in our state appeals to you?
Watch for “reported” influenza and flu deaths this season to be “weirdly” low. Sleight of hand? Magic? Creative reporting to make deaths from Chinese virus appear to be worse than it is/was in order to justify loss of freedom? More deaths to blame on Trump’s “handling” of the “pandemic”?
Wink, wink. Nod, nod.
Also, might there be a financial consideration for the medical community as the Feds have signaled money, money, money will be coming to pay for “Coronovirus” treatment? Why, yes there “might” just be.
And it will get higher than that.
Probably about a 0.5% fatality rate, like all the other flus.
Yes we are.
One things for sure. No matter what data to the contrary comes out, and it will, youll always pimp fear and dread like its the second coming of the Black Death.
Time for a road trip. I am sick of not being able to go out for breakfast. I know, that sounds pretty damn trivial compared to people actually suffering from this. Unfortunately I cannot get the wife to go along. She thinks they have to be lying to us because the numbers do not justify putting most of the nation under house arrest.
