USA CoViD-19 Cases Up ~ 5% week over week
The Coronavirus has begun making modest gains of ~5% on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday so far this week vs the same days last week. Not sure how this comports with that latest data from Milan supporting that CoViD has vanished from the scene.
The good news is that local governments have no reason to keep small businesses sidelined, all business must be allowed to reopen immediately on grounds that we no longer have a pandemic situation. It’s over. Proof: Otherwise “protesters” would be disbursed or arrested or cited for gathering in groups just as are owners and patrons of Gyms and Hair Salons.

Of the 250 people in my social, family and friends network, only one person I know was hospitalized with the Coronavirus (age 72 and 60 pounds overweight) and no one died. This is 0.004%. (1/100 of 1 %).
In my opinion, the fear statistics that the news media is constantly reporting is out of context. The more meaningful information for reporting is the tracking of those that required “Hospitalization” and those that died i.e. “Deaths” for Covid 19. I don’t see the relevance in tracking or reporting “new cases of the Coronavirus” knowing that 99% recover.
I would suggest that the news media report on a daily basis the YTD number of deaths from the Flu (including Covid 19) and report in a format that tracks “this year (i.e. 2020) verses the previous 5 – 10 years.
Lastly, reporting outcomes comparing states or countries where the population “Sheltered in Place” i.e. “lockdowns” and how those statistics compare to YTD “Hospitalization’s” and YTP “Deaths” from States and Countries that did not lock-down.
Sir, the relevance is that it takes multiple digits of dead people to make others understand that their family member might die if they wont take any measures. Especially as authorities, like WHO, the Tegnell clown even majority of doctors were pushing nonsense about less than flu lethality,
also your math would work only if majority of your friends were infected, just add the 4th dimension there
99% recovery rate is also dubious, 99% chance for me, for you maybe 80%, really want to cast the dice? Cause there is nothing to win, just to lose
There is zero (published) evidence to date that 95%+ of Coronavirus CoViD-19 patients survive. To the contrary, all published data point to:
If you are sick enough to see a doctor, clinic or hospital and if you turn out to have CoViD-19 and become a tracked patient, you have a CFR of no less than 5% and as high as 22% depending upon where you live and how the statistics are calculated.
The CFR worldwide has remained steady between 5% and 22% for over 12 weeks now, this is not a good sign.
I base this on the official published stats. My CFR math is correct. If there is an error, it is in the ‘conspiracy’ of the published stats that I plug into the CFR calculation.
Are deaths the only relevant outcome? COVID also causes many other distressing symptoms and outcomes, including what may be permanent lung impairment. So I think we should think about chronic morbidity as well as mortality.
On the other hand, there seem to be people who test positive for COVID and don’t go onto develop symptoms, and people who test positive for antibodies and never had symptoms. This leads me to wonder if the RNA amplification test for COVID infection may pick up viral loads that don’t represent active virus (perhaps detecting RNA fragments independent of whole virus). Then there is the possibility of antibody cross-reactivity with other coronaviruses, of which there are many, the common cold being one.
