    One stone has been turned over. I wonder what is hiding under the other stones. This year is only getting stranger. Thanks for posting.

    Saw that. Certainly does show that healthy folks have little to fear from COVID.

    It is true, however, that some of those secondary diseases could have been picked up due to COVID like a pneumonia or something similar. So the numbers aren't quite as cut and dry.

    I thought that was pretty clear from the start. Those with comorbidities were the ones at risk of croaking.

    Unfortunately, that's a lot of people.

    "A full description of the methodology can be found in the appendix. As of 2014, 60 percent of American adults had at least one chronic condition, and 42 percent had more than one chronic condition."

    So, COVID-19 is actually improving the American gene pool? Guess one could make that argument, if all those who croaked were still actively reproducing.

    Seems to me, though, it may just have improved Medicare & Medicaid's near-term financial situation.

    Hmmmmm.....

    Actually, I was referring to age & susceptibility to illness, but your point is taken. She might very well be pleased by the way things are working out.

    A very strange disease. Not only will medical academics be studying this virus for years, but the extensive pilitical exploitation of the epidemic will provide material for innumerable political science theses.

    I went to the CDC's website and I still see that over 150,000 have died from CoVID-19.
    Is there another place that they revised the numbers?

    It can be true that people with comorbidities are at a much greater risk AND they died of covid.

    if not then probably need to updated the flu death number from every year. Many that died of the flu last year had comorbidities. Many would be alive this year if they had not got the flu last year.

    Nothing new viruses kill sick people mostly.

    I just ran this by wifey at work. It’s a slow day in critical care.
    It wasn’t news to her. Hell, she was complaining about this in April (back when she was assigned to the Covid unit). If someone got hit by a bus and died, but their autopsy came back C19+, they were counted as a Covid death. Hell, George Floyd was probably counted as a Covid death.

    I have a conspiracy theory about the timing of the CDC starting to change their Covid accounting process. I can foresee an “all clear” announcement around mid-November, assuming the election goes the way it’s supposed to.

    I posted this on Nextdoor after someone stated they would tell an anti masker off (county just extended mask order to end of November).
    Their response, it came from a right political
    Website so they don't consider it.

    You can't teach lemmings anything.

    We have a lot of fear from COVID.

    $3T in additional debt.

    People scared and refusing to work.

    Governors imposing months of lock downs.

    Idiots giving into the demands that leftist nazi governors and local politicians demand of them "to be safe" all based upon lies.

    Sheeple being trained to do as they are told and wear their Nikabs. It is training to do as you are told, based upon a lie, for some invisible boogy man.

    The damage has been done, and it wasnt the death toll. It was the people control toll.

    But go about your business, you conservative freedom lovers... oh wait.. nazis have shut down businesses and told you to wear Nikabs... and you followed right along....if you followed right along, just go vote for Joe and join an Antifa rally, you are already one of them should make it official.

    Yes. I hate little dictators, communist and socialists.

    Clearly I had referenced the disease itself not government overreaction.

    .0018% mortality rate.
    If 6 million infected.
    If 11,000 dead by CV.
    USA numbers rounded up.

    The CDC quietly announced the number of folks in the USA that have died from Covid, alone.
    9210.
    That's way different than the predicted TWO MILLION and not even 6% of the 180,000 that we are being led to believe.
    Find it for yourself on the CDC web site, "providing Covid deaths" table 3, under "Comorbidities"

    That will be ignored. You are correct, COVID causes the respiratory complications that develop into something like pneumonia that leads to death. So, in those cases you would see it listed as COVID and respiratory disease.

    Right, and that does happen to otherwise healthy people on occasion, it's happened locally in fact.

    Other types of minor issues can be caused, then greatly exacerbated by COVID and be listed as comorbidities. In addition, even if a secondary issue like a moderate or even minor diabetes can merge with the 'rona and cause death and be listed, but otherwise would not have been detemental folr healthy and long life.

    But still, it does reinforce that a generally healthy adult faces little, statistical, risk from this disease and clarifies that nationwide, populace wide, lockdowns were terribly useless and damaging, when simply protecting those who were already sick would have been a better plan.
