The problem with that is that there is a definitive correlation between new cases and future hospitalizations and deaths.


There was in April but it's not close to being the case now. We have far mores cases today and far fewer daily deaths than we had in the April peaks.

And the average age of a new case (positive test) is about 20+ years younger than it was back in April.

Completely false.
It’s not the same ratio, but there is still a correlation.

Completey true.

Look at the daily deaths in April and now and look at the number of cases.Look at the damn numbers yourself.

The average age for someone testing positive is 35 in Florida...down from 65 in March

quote:

In Florida, which breaks records for new cases nearly every day, the median age of residents testing positive for the virus has dropped to 35, down from 65 in March.


Are you actually trying to tell me they're dying at the same rate? Complete horse shite and you know it.

Lol a news article is science to you. Actual scientists understand what skepticism is and how you apply it. Many epidemiologists feel that the lockdowns caused several other severe health effects like: drugs overdoses have gone up 200% pretty much every month since March; suicides are up, domestic and child abuse; "electjve surgeries often include cancer diagnoses, heart problems, and kidney related disorders. There are millions of health problems, but because this is novel and scary we have to hide from this one.

If we can't even admit that other countries have handled this much better then we're never gonna get this thing turned around

Not at all. You’re just dumb and can’t read or even think for yourself.

Some articles are about studies by actual scientists.

But I get get what you’re saying and you’re right.

This is laughable

So we should slow testing...US has performed more than double the test than the next closest country.

I love the optimism, but what about the hospitals? That’s really the whole point of the quarantine. They just can’t handle a mass amount of cases at once. Other than that, herd immunity makes sense.

I mean, no one’s arguing that you can have a death without a confirmed case to go with it.

Name the countries. Why is it always a general remark rather than any specific country? Is it because if you took the country you'll likely find other factors were likely bigger contributors?

If you can't understand the differences between the situations, countries and that they are most likely just at best delaying the inevitable, then what does it matter?

Even worse, people such as yourself always treat the situation as if it's in a vacuum and as if there are no consequences or other factors involved.

And you base it all on a virus that has a fatality rate under 0.25%. If it killed everyone it's projected to kill, it would make up a total of 6% of all deaths - not population, just deaths for the year.

Furthermore, there is nothing to turn around. Nature will take it's course. All that can be done with a virus that is this contagious is wait it out.

I know it may be hard to believe, but our bodies are actually prepared to handle these things for the most part. And as for the rest, it's just a hard reality that life is that way. It's not realistic to put the entire worlds population in lockdown for an airborne contagious virus.

We have record hospitalization in areas that have record cases. Nothing has changed except the locations of the hot spots.

Yeah I know but they often don't understand the paper or that one paper doesn't make it a fact. I have read several papers on this on pubmed and Jama and NEJM. It is dangerous to certain groups but I still believe the lockdown was uneeded. Sweden has barely been affected by covid.

re: Herd immunity is gaining fast traction, peaking now...
The herd immunity narrative is the product of wishful thinking and ignorance, and it's annoying. Here's why.

In rare cases the floor for herd immunity is about 40% of a population, but in the vast majority of cases ( especially cases with highly transmittable airborne pathogens) it's around 80-95%.

Considering all of the information collected in the past 6 months the death rate is supposed to land between 0.5-1%.

That gives the US between 650k and 1.3 million dead as a very unlikely, wishful-thinking, best-case scenario of 40%. A more realistic expectation is 1.3-3.1 million dead. For perspective that's more than the total war dead in all of US history.

Consider the fact that plenty of countries are managing this well and providing a blueprint that we are simply refusing to follow. If we have to rely on herd immunity because of how woefully mismanaged this entire debacle has been, it makes this administration one of the 2-3 worst in the history of this country.

Note: A vaccine gets us to herd immunity without the millions of dead. If our strategy is do nothing and eventually it'll work out, let's go ahead pray for that..
