It is about less than 3% compared to the confirmed case.

if you consider the asymptomatic folks who never got tested, the percentage drops even lower


I thought less than 10,000 died?
Didn't the CDC already confirm this?
The rest had severe underlying conditions, and many were killed by early treatment.
Now no one is dying barely; same thing across Europe.
Ventilators were killing everyone as treatment was ARDS-related rather than Blood clot organ failure related.

D241 was right about one thing, which in hindsight is incredible.
This may not be the thread of the year.
The Civil War thread may beat it by the end of November.
I'm sitting in nuclear unrestville, desperately looking to find a safespace!

BTW, I don't even wear a mask anymore except in this terrible smoke and where it is mandated.
I'm fully convinced vitamin sunshine, diet, and the other vitamins I take will keep me good.
Dr. Chris Martenson's videos, as well as Shiva and Buttar's, have basically concluded, along with tens of thousands of other doctors worldwide, that (a)the treatment is available and cheap(b)this isn't as 'novel' as we thought, showing a now either 40% herd immunity or total immunity predisposition(c)hits the unhealthy and crowded the worst.

I have 20 n99's and a pile of N95's still, but I'm saving them for the next pandemic, or the next wave of fires, or Mt. Ranier exploding, or Yellowstone, or the asteroid.

Even attempting to say that covid killing patients with other health problems isn't covid killing them, this is still complete misinformation.

Why is this unpinned? Is Rona over?
I keep getting requests to pin all the other most important threads -- fires, civil unrest, president, and decided to just let them ride.
I am fine with whatever the democracy of the forum wants, but we can't have a ton of pinned threads. Over time it ironically lowers input in those threads because people glaze over the clump.

I knew it!
Risk of not seeking care is larger than risk of coronavirus in early infections when you don't have flare ups (such as NYC/NJ in the spring, Texas/Florida in early summer). Texas during lock down had a larger percentage of chronic disease deaths (ACS/DM2, etc) as a share of excess deaths than coronavirus. But that doesn't hold true during flare ups like NYC and then Texas in the summer.

In Texas, to reopen elective procedures, Governor had hospitals sign agreements stating they had so much PPE and protocols on hand that they will not request government help. This in response to the large PPE shortages. This is obviously a bad incentive. Hospitals can just say yes, get opened for elective, and then let it ride. You can't stay closed, but there was no support or apparatus from government assistance for [from your article]:

control viral spread with the right tactics like testing every patient on arrival and requiring everyone who is able to wear masks to do so


Just one more buck passing to the lowest level. And as you know, what does the hospital admin do? Blame the agency nurse if she/he gets sick. Must have not worn your PPE well enough. All while reusing gowns and eye protection, etc.

Every single plan comes back to data and need for larger more consistent testing to isolate the infected. And here we are going into flu season just as bad as we were in May.

Can you pin every thread and make them all live?

do you blame the president?
Thanks Biden!


I guess Trump doesn’t realize Biden isn’t the president.... and he must have missed this, from back in September:

Prison Rape Survivor @conor mcgregor nut hugger whats your positivity rate look like?
Overall it's 13.36%

Last two weeks, state:

Last two weeks, Broward County

The state decided last week to re-open bars statewide lol. Doing that is exactly what led to the record-breaking spike in infections in June. Fortunately they won't be opening in my county or the two counties closest to me.

Looking good, we still haven't opened bars but you also don't hear about it a whole lot anymore either. It's interesting to say the least.

Really.

So let's talk about Chadwick Boseman.

Would you say he died of multiple organ failure, or colon cancer?
