Skip to comments.New York State Antibody Study Finds Infectino Mortality Rate At Least 5 Times Greater Than Seasonal Flu.
Posted on 04/23/2020 9:53:52 AM PDT by brookwood
As of Thursday, nearly 16,000 people in New York have died of virus-related complications. With 250,000-plus confirmed cases, the mortality rate would be as high as 16 percent. With 2.7 million cases, it would be around 0.5 percent -- much lower, though still much higher than the seasonal flu.
Using a 13% infection rate and 2,700,000 cases, the Infection fatality rate is .8%, 8 times higher than seasonal flu. And the .1% seasonal flu mortality rate cited is based on cases with symptoms, it does not consider infections which could be detected by blood test but produce no symptoms. 75% of regular flu is asymptomatic so the infection fatality rate for normal flu is actually .025% Therefore Covid19 is 32 times as deadly as seasonal flu. Any questions? https://www.nhs.uk/news/medical-practice/three-quarters-of-people-with-flu-have-no-symptoms/ https://www.cdc.gov/flu/about/burden/2018-2019.html
I think you have discovered the root cause of the infection! Infectinos.
All this time I thought it was virions. You may be in line for a Nobel Prize.
Mike Pence was just talking about this on Rush Limbaugh’s show.
Says they are finding many, many people with antibodies who did not know they were sick. Can you say “herd immunity”?
Also said that this was anticipated. I don’t buy it. I think he’s being a gentleman and covering Fauci’s arse.
It’s still going to take a week or two before the normies figure this out. Doesn’t help that the antibody results aren’t repeated over and over at the daily briefings.
“much lower, though still much higher”
OK. “Lots worse, but less worse.”
“Lots hotter, but much cooler.”
Sixto Infectino. Isn’t he a hot shortstop prospect for the Yankees?
Lots of then Eye-talian people gettinga thata virus there.
Worldometers is communist funded Soros propaganda.
“Sixto Infectino - hot shortstop prospect”
LOL...really, I am by myself and laughing out loud at that one. Thanks!
so the denominator is gigantically higher and the numerator is about the same — this, therefore, is in the flu-like range and not the Black Plague.
therefore, the FEAR bros are incorrect — again.
And it’s clearly time to open up the imprisoned economy and its jailed workers.
So is brookwood
That’s good! ;)
I thought I was wrong but I was mistaken.

‘Pierre Delectos’ half brother.
I didn’t know until this day it was Infectino all along.
Not clear from the article how “seasonal flu” was defined and how far back that data went. The trick is to isolate the effect of the virus. To do this, it seems that there should be some sort of age adjustment if the data went back far enough — aren’t the aging baby boomers who are dying from the virus now 10 years older, and in worse shape, than they were when the SARS epidemic broke under Obama?
