    Virus in US

    Covid19 deaths are undercounted. Flu deaths are as well, which is why they multiply the number upwards for the estimates you reference. Comparing the raw count of one with the (reasonably) inflated estimate of the other in an attempt to downplay the former is, put simply, dumb.

    Which would all be fine ... if the number of confirmed COVID19 deaths wasn't being compared, by idiots, to the (reasonably) inflated estimate of flu deaths as we set and assess public policy.

    Sharing once again ... flu deaths are an inflated estimate: These coefficients are based on assumptions of how many cases, hospitalizations, and deaths they believe went unreported. In the last six flu seasons, the CDC’s reported number of actual confirmed flu deaths—that is, counting flu deaths the way we are currently counting deaths from the coronavirus—has ranged from 3,448 to 15,620, which far lower than the numbers commonly repeated by public officials and even public health experts. https://blogs.scientificamerican.com/observations/comparing-covid-19-deaths-to-flu-deaths-is-like-comparing-apples-to-oranges/

    Wrong. 80,000 is an estimate. You'd know that if you read the news, this thread or the CDC website. Actual, documented flu deaths are closer to 5,000 on an annual basis. Now, imagine if COVID19 cases were (rightfully) multiplied that high based on estimates. You're not comparing apples to apples and it gives a false impression. Thanks for proving the point.

    Actually, it isn't. Is that actual, documented deaths from the flu or is it estimated deaths, increased by a few multiples?

    Clay Travis is a fucking loser who increasingly peddles his shit to the far right conspiracy lowest denominator. He's a pathetic sell out. And, no, not all opinions are equally valid. Especially when they're not based on and/or don't cite relevant and accurate data.

    Can people in stand your ground states shoot maskless people less than 6 feet from them citing fearing for their life. That would make a fun court case.

    My late uncle who had addiction and conformity issues and lived on the streets moved from Indiana to Arizona and then California. Anecdotal evidence.

    Is it worse than MERS, SARS or the flu?

    https://www.yahoo.com/news/alabama-hospitals-icu-beds-montgomerys-014045993.html Montgomery hospitals are "down to just a handful of ICU beds," Mayor Steven Reed told Business Insider on Thursday. Many of the incoming patients are from surrounding rural counties which don't have ICUs. Unable to take in new patients who are in need of immediate attention, Montgomery hospitals are transferring them 90 miles away to Birmingham, Reed said. It's the first time they've had to make such transfers since the pandemic began. "That's very serious," Reed said in a Wednesday press conference. "Right now, if you're from Montgomery, and you need an ICU bed, you're in trouble. If you're from Central Alabama, and you need an ICU bed, you may not be able to get one because our health care system has been maxed out."

    MERS killed 866 people worldwide. Again, basic math. Btw, in an entire year, the flu kills 3,500 - 15,500 in the US. They suspect some cases aren't identified and so they estimate up to 61,000 but the actual number is 3,500 -15,500 depending on the year. And, again, that's 12 months. Oh, and 61,000 is still less than the reported deaths for Covid19 in just a few months of extreme social measures. Oh, and Covid19, just like the flu, has a number of deaths that aren't identified so even this comparison is too soft. The fact (yes, fact) is that Covid19 is way more deadly than the mother fucking flu, MERS and SARS. Put. Together. But keep on insisting otherwise.

    Speaking of idiots, SARS killed less than 800 people globally and exactly zero people in the US. Otherwise, good point.

    I also believe in basic math, fool that I am.
