Round and round, eh rood?

I'm onto something new: actual confirmed cases of flu deaths (between ~3.5k to 16k) to actual confirmed cases of Covid-19 deaths (watch them bristle!) currently closing in on 65k in the US.

Should be defined by separate ICD codes for COVID death.

Death FROM
Death WITH

Makes a difference.

Not sure I follow.

There are 2 ICD codes for COVID death. There should be 2 stats for COVID death. That way, it is clear how the death was categorized.

Are you against information? I'm not. /shrug/

Older people had already survived previous pandemic of the same strain.

Why do you think they don't only want positive/negative testing, but antibody testing as well?
I don't need to do a Google search. It's only natural to develop immunity from exposure to it. Also, some people have already been exposed to SARS. In fact, there may be a lot of people who already have some immunity to the Coronavirus. A coworker of mine, who's wife had the Coronavirus, had such mild symptoms of it that he didn't even get tested. His wife has some sort immune deficiency, so she had to be treated at the hospital before quarantining herself at home for a couple of weeks.

Here are the real numbers for the US: https://t.co/vu4lYNo0Y5?amp=1

All this nonsense, shutting everything down, crazy unemployment, and suicides for under 40K deaths which is less than the flu's numbers.

Uh...what? That 37000 was for two weeks ago. 20 thousand more have died since then - the updating rate of that table is clearly explained above in the guide and below in the foot notes. Next week ain't looking good either.



Any way ya look at it - 12000 dead in a week from COVID outpaces the flew every "flu week" we have data for.


Not sure why that's "nonsense."


Rayin - I'm not sure what you're saying there - if you're implying that some people will become immune without being infected - there's no proof of that. The general path to immunity is to get infected. Not sure what the "mild symptoms" have to do with it - that's "fully infected" even if your symptoms are mild. Which mainly means - you are fully contagious. A whole lotta people are fully infected (confirmed by tests) with zero symptoms - ever.

Uh, I read the notes. They knocked off the numbers. It was over 60,000 on April 30th. https://twitter.com/trex93/status/12...670401/photo/1

It's nonsense because WV or Idaho shouldn't be treated the same as NY or Mass. It's nonsense because over 20 million are unemployed due to a problem that has been mostly confined to certain areas.
