Some areas of the country, the US, are having low COVID death rates, we don’t know why.
Nobody talks about it or reports it. Trump doesn’t talk about it either. As conspiracy guys, we tend to run to the ‘wipe out the old folks’ riff.
As statisticians and scientists, we tend to believe we are dealing with more than one disease and clear evidence of bioengineering or biological warfare.
VT tracks death rates for COVID carefully, they follow a curve, which has flattened out at where VT predicted. VT predicted 3.41 for the US by January, we are at 3.85 percent now.
This number is the percentage of those who test positive who die, simple as that. There is a graph at Worldmeters.com, the most accurate of the reporting services.
This is Italy’s graphThis is the US
These are today’s figures. They were much higher in March.
Where I live, we are running about 1 percent but with 20 to 30 we are running .3 %.
With 80 year olds, about 30%, halve that for 70 and halve again for 60.
However, there are some very serious things wrong.
- Death rates start at 50 and don’t really involve so much ‘co-morbidity’ as they do level of care. Minorities get very poor heath care in the US and die at a higher rate. African Americans are susceptible to certain cardiac and lung issues with extreme numbers suffering from asthma.
- Yes, there are regions whose rates are much lower than others, inexplicably so, almost as though it were another disease. By ‘inexplicable’ we mean something very bad and purposeful is probably going on and it is being covered up
- We suggest that the curious don’t read apologists Trump material but look at things themselves using simple math. If you don’t have simple math skills, don’t vote, you are too stupid.
What is clear is this, too much fake information is out there. Only a vaccine, properly tested, can save the US now. There will have to be national mandatory masks until then, for a few months, to cut deaths, which are back to 1000 a day.
This is a very real and very high rate.
Not even Fauci is being clear about the highly divergent death rates.
Here, where I am, Grand Valley State College pumped up our numbers with a massive infection rate. They instituted a 2 week lockdown and cut it to nothing.
Pay attention. Real lockdowns work.
However, nobody died but how many got really sick? Nobody knows, it is a secret? Why?
Our hospitalizations here go 4 percent or a bit more of all positive tests. These are not being tracked or are outcomes, not in a meaningful way. Why?
With an overall figure for the US of 3.85 fatality of all positive tests, if we had a national figure on hospitalizations, we could extrapolate a death rate v. hospitalizations. But we can’t, why?
Why are some regions so much lower? Why?
Why so high a death rate still?
OK, if there was honest reporting, which is blocked by HHS and Trump, we could have unlocked many areas in a safe manner than was done. Many lives were lost because of lying at HHS, not the CDC.
Trump put a liar and fraud at HHS to oversee fake stats which, in turn, blocked those who were doing a good job from doing it right and this has been killing tens of thousands.
