Screaming media says US reached a ‘grim milestone’ in Cov-19 deaths

The media is blasting headlines about the U.S. reaching a new “grim milestone” in coronavirus deaths today. The U.S. has overtaken Italy for the most coronavirus deaths in the world. Other than getting clicks for the click-happy media, it’s not accurate to only talk about that number in isolation.

First of all, the U.S. has the third largest population in the world ( 5 and 1/2 times Italy’s) and secondly, China’s lying their fool heads off. In all likelihood, they have far more deaths.

A tally by Johns Hopkins University showed Saturday that 18,860 people have now died in the U.S. since the start of the outbreak. On Saturday, 2,108 people died in the U.S. in the past 24 hours – the first country in the world to record more than 2,000 deaths in a single day.

As a result, the U.S. has now overtaken Italy’s total of 18,849. It has recorded more than 503,000 cases.

However, experts on the White House’s coronavirus task force suggested the outbreak within America’s borders is starting to level off slowly.

“As encouraging as they are, we have not reached the peak,” Dr. Deborah Birx said Friday.

More than 40 percent of the deaths in the U.S. have happened in New York state, which is considered the epicenter of the virus in the country.

De Blasio suggested he will close the New York City public schools through the school year, but the governor says not so fast

Cuomo said of de Blasio, “He didn’t close them and he can’t open them.”

What should also be stressed is the success of our wonderful healthcare system and all those professionals who make it work.

The USA is doing a lot better than the rest of the world

The United States is doing much better in terms of death rates than the other countries with their socialized medicine. That holds true for the pandemic.

As of the end of February, the death rate for any illness in the USA is [going up but still] very low at 3.3 per million, Spain is 89 per million, Italy is 124 per million, The Netherlands is 25 per million, and Great Britain is 7.2 per million.

The death rate from coronavirus as of today in terms of the total population of each country is: Spain is 352 per million or (46.4 mn), Italy is 312 per million (60.4mn), The Netherlands is 152 per million (17.4mn), Great Britain is 155 per million (63.7mn), Sweden is 87.8 per million (despite no serious precautions), USA is 57.4 per million (out of 327 million).

The death rate as of today for coronavirus alone of those who are confirmed to have the disease or had it: Italy 12.8%, Spain 10%, France 10.5%, The Netherlands 10.8%, Great Britain 12%, Sweden is 9.2%, and the USA is 3.7%.

The caveat here is we don’t know how many have it or had it.

The IHME NOW says they won’t be giving updates nearly as often. I wonder why. Of course, now the amount of work involved is too much for their understaffed workforce.

What a Lying SOB. The model’s Projections WERE the reason for the economic Shutdown.
Trump has said so many times. He mentions the TWO MILLION. His entire job has to do with models and statistical analysis.

They actually showed that CGI rendered animation. Particle physics animations are limited in what they can do. Assumptions have to be made in the same way modeling does. They have highly increased the particle size, density and even wind velocity constants. One of the primary determining factors is the type of Particle Emitter. Having a human model itself being the emitter tells nothing. You would first have to build the head, nose and mouth and have the emitter inside it with constraints that allow particles only from the orifices. Using CG software is no different than model projections.

When it’s phrased, as Fox did, “perhaps the biggest historical moment of our lifetime..”, it’s being quite hyperbolic. The Asian Flu epidemic had much larger numbers than we have seen. That was in MY lifetime. This concept of “flattening the curve” isn’t for the reason of reducing the death toll. The Only purpose was to relieve hospitals of being overburdened. That flattening showed the spread over a longer period of time. The deaths were considered to be mostly the same.

Even MORE disgusting report by Fox is their chart of “Potential Hot Spots”. They list S. Dakota having over a 200% increase. As of today they have a total of SIX deaths. This goes well beyond scaremongering and into the realm of the worst yellow journalism there is. But I Will say, Fox doesn’t have the brightest people on the payroll. To claim distancing is what brought the numbers down from peak hospitalizations is to ignore the models’ own assertions. The figures WITH mitigation brought down the numbers to 240,000 from 2 million without mitigation. But that number Never came close to reality. The conclusion is the model was just flat out demonstrably wrong. The IHME charts actually show the increasing issues WITH their models. It is the margin of error, which is the “shaded part”. That shaded area has grown exponentially over the course of their modifications. Good modeling doesn’t need Constant “adjustments”. Something was wrong from the beginning.

Lest we forget, Fox was also believing the lying woman against Kavanaugh saying how “believable” she was.

Then there is the semantics, social distancing versus enforced confinement. The ONLY people keep social distancing is the “essential” workers. The REST of the country is in enforced quarantine. If were aren’t even suppose to go grocery shopping, according to Birx, then it is NOT social distancing. “Distancing” implies “gathering”, but keeping your distance. When confined at home that is anti-gathering.

“As encouraging as they are, we have not reached the peak,” Dr. Deborah Birx said Friday.

Said the other half of the team of Doom and Doomer.

I might be more willing to listen Doc, if you weren’t trying to pad the numbers by counting every death as a Covid 19.

The Bolshevik RAT enemedia will have the sads if and when the CCP flu fades away.
Do they talk about any risk factors to help comfort the afflicted?
In the break room they hope that the deplorables are over represented in the number of cases.
