I’ll be brief, as I’m hoping - in vain perhaps - that most people with a brain above room temperature would already know and understand the following.
What passes for news reporting in the United States has been and is - I believe for purely political reasons - focused exclusively on the number of new cases reported.
Allow me to VERY briefly say this about that: Communicable diseases transmit through exposure. As more and more people climb out of their government/self-imposed bunkers they will, by scientific definition, expose themselves to infection. Are you with me so far?? Good!!
We now have therapeutics - at least a few - that have been shown through usage to be of significant benefit in mitigating the effects of the virus on the body. So far, so good?? I sure as hell hope so. How about you Democrats, are you getting this?
The point is, as more people are exposed by way of beginning to crawl out of their bunkers and resume their lives the more reported cases we should expect - unless you are a Democrat, in which case none of this will make sense.
The real key statistic is NOT the number of new cases, but the death rate among those contracting covid-19.
As we have learned more about the virus, the death rate has been and is falling significantly in the US - among all age groups and among those with seriously compromised immune systems. Scientifically, that is a function of having a better understanding of the disease leading to our ability to significantly improve our regimen of treatment protocols.
Survival rates - again, for those of you on the Left, the survival rate refers to the rate of survival among those who have tested positive for covid-19. Among the younger members of our society in good health we currently have a survival rate approaching 99.8% For those of you who did not pay attention during your exposure to 3rd grade math, that translates to roughly 2 deaths per 1000. Even among the aged and infirmed the current survival rate is in the 95.5% range - or 4.5 deaths per 1000.
And for this, according to Joe Biden and the entirety of the Left, we are to shut down our economy (read: destroy our economy and our future) if Fauci says so?
Are some of you nuts, or what?
