Or an increase in other viruses...

 

As in feeling sick and finding out you only have VD and breathing a sigh of relief.

Behind the numbers:

 

OK, I have said this is all bullshit, but in looking at the daily numbers in the U.S. over the past 5 days (website https://infection2020.com/),  an extremely disturbing trend is emerging that is making me question myself.

 

Tracking the number of cases is useless in the face of limited testing, because it doesn't represent any sort of true reality.  As more people are tested, that number will climb, and is heavily impacted by test availability.  As long as testing is limited, it is not a good metric.

 

So that leaves us with the fatality rate.  The dead are dead, regardless of how many people are tested.  At this point it is the only solid metric that we have.

 

So, how has the death rate in the U.S. been for the past 5 days?  Well, it has held steady at around a 25% increase per 24 hour period.  If that doesn't sound like a lot, guess again.  That is an exponential growth pattern.  Not the classic power function 100% growth pattern that they show in the movies, but significant and disturbing nonetheless.  (And even worse, in the past 24 hours, the number of fatalities has increased by 32 % as opposed to around 25%).

 

Ignoring the past 24 hour rate of 32%, and assuming a steady 25% increase per day, and starting right now with the current number of dead at 1609, the formula for the death rate is as follows (I had to research how to come up with the formula):

So how bad is a 25% increase per day?

 

Well, using the formula above, take a look at these numbers (I rounded off the values for clarity):

 

After 2 weeks:       36K total dead

After 1 month:       1.3 million total dead

After 2 months:     1 billion total dead

 

Wow.  I don't know what to make of this.

 

 

 

 

 

You should refrain from trying to do math.

It's the same throughout TN. It's the Republican propaganda machine and Trump downplaying it.

 

There's a test engineer at work that's in his early 60s but seems like he's in his 80s and when we tried to get him to stay home he's just popped off Trump BS to downplay it saying he wasn't afraid of it. 

 

Fox News 24/7 in my home town for sure...

 

The ridiculous thing is I know these are very intelligent people...😖

The Fox Business Network announced on Friday that it had parted ways with Trish Regan, the conservative news host who ignited controversy earlier this month when she dismissed the coronavirus pandemic as a conspiracy to throw President Trump out of office,...

 

Regan faced fierce criticism earlier this month when she described the coronavirus to her viewers as an "impeachment scam."   Regan claimed "many in the liberal media" were using the pandemic "in an attempt to demonize and destroy" Trump.  "This is impeachment all over again," Regan said at the time, claiming Trump's critics were using the pandemic to spark panic and destabilize the economy to harm his chances of being re-elected,...
 

Fox News and the Fox Business Network have come under fire in recent weeks for how its top hosts and personalities initially covered the coronavirus pandemic. For weeks, they downplayed the coronavirus, with Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham telling their audiences that news coverage of the virus was aimed at hurting Trump politically. The often-dismissive messaging from Fox News hosts was notable, given that the viewers who make up the network's audience skew older and are thus more vulnerable to the disease.

 

Polls from both Gallup and Pew Research revealed that Republicans — who are largely distrustful of mainstream news organizations and primarily turn to Fox News and other right-wing sources for information on current events — were much less likely to take the risks of the coronavirus as seriously as their Democratic counterparts.

Yeah, it's not about intelligence. Propaganda works especially when that's all you see. Trump and the right wing machine has systematically undermined the right's trust in almost anything outside of their propaganda machine. It's disturbing to be honest.

Not sure how old you are, but back in the day there was an expression about not discussing politics or religion at the dinner table.  Seemed to be a focus around Thanksgiving.  

 

Intelligence has been abandoned when these topics come up for a long time.  And now we have the internet in which Uncle Jeb shouts his opinion constantly.

Lol what? 

 

Well, let's just say in his brain dead desire to be right, and doubling down on it, he was suggesting that consumerism isn't the primary driver of the economy.  

 

Who knows what he really believes, because Dems being wrong overrides any semblance of intelligence he may have.  

 

But whatever, we're going with what he posts, so fucking stupid it is.

Keep your head up my man. She should be okay. Plenty of rest. Stay extra hydrated. Make sure she sleeps propped up on pillows to keep her chest open and draining instead of allowing fluid to build in the lungs.
