I like going to Worldometers. Then, I like to click on tests per million. Then, I scan down to Saint Pierre Miquelon to find the US just behind it.

How many are never hospitalized? How many that are hospitalized recover? How many positives are false positives?

How many people have the flu? Since it is also airborne, and sometimes deadly, why don’t we start testing asymptomatic people for the flu, too, so we can know how contagious it really is?

So many questions. No one ever wants to answer them.

Daily Cases have been going up for weeks, yet Daily Deaths continue to go down.

Looks like we are having just a Daily Test surge.

Something 'very strange' is occurring amid Europe's second wave of infections

If I understand the doctor, lots of infections but very few deaths. A natural immunity due to low dose exposer has occurred, and now a herd immunity is taking place.

Cases aren’t meaningful at this stage. It is everywhere and we can’t stop the spread and live anything like a normal life economically. Sweden is finished with the lethality part and never shut down. We will just have to wait until w e catch up to them.

Their ratio of deaths to cases is .057. Ours is .027 except in the Northeast where it is .07. The rest of the US will follow slowly upward so we might as well open up.

Bubbling healthy 30 year old baseball players is a symbolic gesture but pointless from a mortality standpoint.

The US 7-day average of deaths has fallen to 702.
This is the lowest in the 2nd wave.
The US 7-day average first passed 702 on April 1.
Between the 1st and 2nd waves it fell below 702 from June 17 to July 10 with a low of 518 on July 5, depressed slightly due to the July 4 holiday lack of reporting.
(There was a similar dip in the Labor Day reporting leading some media to call a 3rd wave from there. The 3rd wave of cases actually started 2 weeks later.)

Third wave of new cases, yes. We are still in the second wave of deaths, they are still trending down at this moment.

herd immunity = the vulnerable are already dead

Vulnerable = old + comorbidities + genetics

The last factor is generally ignored because other than “minorities hardest hit because Trump hates Blacks”, considering genetic factors would be racist. The fact is COVID-19 kills ethnic groups in the order they left east Asia or were never there.

Or it could be a weakening virus. Way back in mid May my friend, a doctor at a Long Island hospital told me the people being admitted then were far less sick than those admitted a month earlier and far fewer required ICU care. The staff at the hospital put it down as the virus mutating to a wesker form.

That would make sense. The virus is widespread in the U.S. but deaths are still coming down.
