Well, we have no where to go but down.
We’re hitting death counts unseen for about 1 year. Certainly higher than Delta counts.
I would bet 25-50% of these deaths are fully vaxed by the original definition. The vax got old and people died.
Therefore based upon statistics on those aged 0-49 who were tested as being infected with Covid-19 and judged as having died due to it, then the CFR is 0.14% while for 0-64 .it is 0.18%. In contrast, for those ages 75 and up the CFR rises to over 26%. For a comparison, the odds of dying in a motor vehicle accident are calculated to be 1 in 107 (0.93%) and your chances of getting into a motor vehicle accident are one in 366 (0.27%) for every 1,000 miles driven. And thus despite headlines of exceptions, for the young (and fit and healthy) the odds of dying from Covid-19 are very minimal.
That is, unless you are “quarantined” in the womb. since as the CDC reports, "in 2019, the abortion ratio was 195 abortions per 1,000 live births,” which means that the “pregnancy fatality rate” (PFR) is19.5% (excluding spontaneous miscarriages among known pregnancies which are estimated to average approx. 15%). Thus to impose long-term severe restrictions and requirements in the interest of saving lives (yet which restrictions have their own deleterious effects) due to an infectious somewhat preventable disease, while actually fostering the death of the most vulnerable who are safely “quarantined” in the womb of their mother — as well as doing comparatively little to combat the leading Covid-19 comorbidities — is irrationally inconsistent.
These same numbers had many parts of the country locked down a year ago. Now, more a shrug of the shoulders. People are funny.
I think Sweden had the right approach all along. No hysterical policy changes in response to shifting data. Steady as she goes.
I looks like the cases have peaked and are going down.
What a fine, reliable source to trust, and to promote.
One learns from them: https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/#countries
USA -- 1st in the world in worst pandemic responses
( 898,680 "Worldometer Covid Death in US / 331,002,651 US population ) x 100 = 0.27% over twenty-five months
India - 3rd in the world in worst pandemic responses
( 491,729 "Worldometer Covid Deaths in India / 1,380,004,385 Indians ) x 100 = 0.036 over twenty-five months
China -- 84th in the world of pandemic responses
( 4,636 "Worldometer Covid Deaths in China / 1,439,323,776 Chinese) x 100 = 0.003 % over twenty-five months
The conclusion: Either the data is wildly incorrect, or the Fauci-NIH-CDC pandmeic repsonse in the United States has been singularly awful, deadly and the worldwide leader in death, Covid as a percentage of the population. Perhaps both are correct? Or incorrect?
Yeah. The worldometers site has a deaths/million column. Sweden is way way above Finland and Norway the nearby Scandinavia countries. And above the world average.
Nobody got anything right or wrong. The virus is a scythe.
Or the virus has much more difficulty harming people with Han Chinese DNA…
ransomnote: Worldometer.com uses, as its source, many organizations which have their own credibility problems. Since 'someone' rewrote the content of Wikipedia's entry for Worldometer to eliminate mention of it's flaws/limitations, I thought I should capture what Worldometer says about itself before it, too is revised and sanitized. The thread below primarily demonstrates that worldometer collects its date from the CDC and other, similarly discredited organizations. People wishing to hide the fact that they are repurposing CDC fake data can always quote worldometer…..

Very correct. And when one tabs on that column to order nations by deaths/million numbers, China appears in place 208. The US is in 19th place.
Trust the data. Trust the site.
"Edouard Mathieu, the data manager of Our World in Data, stated that "Their main focus seems to be having the latest number [of COVID-19 cases] wherever it comes from, whether it’s reliable or not, whether it’s well-sourced or not."
Virginia Pitzer, a Yale University epidemiologist, said that the site is "legitimate", but flawed, inconsistent, and containing errors."
Since only the old are vulnerable, you might want to research car accident fatalities for the old and compare them to Covid for the old.
This perpetual litany demanding that denominators be entire country populations is bizarre. It’s like including men in a computation of pregnancy rate.
The death count for 65+ last year was about 25% Excess — meaning above typical pre Covid years.
Trust the data. Trust the site.
People were saying that a week or two ago on MR’s threads. I said it was way too soon to tell and back then I was right it was not a peak then. Yes on the chart it looks like a peak now. We’ll see. In any case these numbers can’t be sustained indefinitely. Ideally this volume of cases + cases already cleared in the past creates a herd immunity.
Deaths are a lagging indicator so we may yet still see high death numbers. Proportionally they may be lower relative to the case count, but still very high numbers.
I have some symptoms. Saturday, a slight fever a touch over 101, chills and aches - but they were gone by Sunday. But Sunday I woke with a horrible sore throat - worst I can remember since being a kid with strep throat. No redness or white spots on my tonsil yet it still hurts a lot. Horrible cough and hoarse voice (neigh!). It’s not constant but when I cough it is productive, and clear so doesn’t look like a bacterial infection. Also digestive issues. From what I read those are all omicron symptoms except I don’t have nasal congestion. I went and got tested but they are taking their sweet time getting me there results. Been staying at home. Would rather be at work.
More tests, more positives. Fewer tests, fewer positives. We are #1 in tests. Remove totalitarian regimes from the equation they put out more fake news than us. Poor countries, give them some slack they have trouble distributing basic medicines. Though India is pretty good with medicine they still have their poverty issues.
Being at home may save some oldster down the line. Good job.
This wallowing in optimism . . . it’s very hard to get people to accept that optimism is 1000s of times more dangerous than pessimism. They want to hear things have peaked and all will be well soon and they rage when 1) they hear something different or 2) the numbers actually turn out to be something different. If you want to think everything will be fine soon, you can book your cruise tix. Then when your cruise date arrives and the US has death counts 2X what they are today, the expenditure influences your choice of getting on the boat.
Stop with the rosy scenarios. It gets people killed.
Deaths will inflect and decline in a few weeks. Just as they did last year.
There will be an absolute explosion of people celebrating how 1) Herd immunity finally took hold and also 2) the Vax population wide finally took hold. Everyone will have an explanation for VICTORY!!!
A couple of months later, the next surge will start. Instantly, without any delay at all, people will manufacture an excuse for their claim being wrong and also, blame it on someone else.
In the meantime, even more will die.
So people don't know when they are ill?
After a test, to know if one is ill because one can't tell, one will always need that next test to be sure, for each day passes, and "tomorrow is another day" with other opportunities to be ill, because now being without symptoms means you too can be ill. But only with Covid. What about influenza tests? Pneumonia tests? Other respiratory illness tests?
Time to invest in test makers. Or stop worrying.
