So the real number of people without comorbidities who have killed by the coronavirus is about 6 percent of the reported death number. Are they telling the truth about anything? From William M. Briggs at wmbriggs.com:
Going a day early with the update because of the news about death counts.
Also, I want everybody to pay attention: memorize the next paragraph.
You hear things like this: “Business are suffering because of coronadoom”. NO! NO! NO! We suffered because of the government reaction to coronadoom. Not because of the bug. Do not repeat this error, and call it out each time you hear it.
Update Proof of the contention:
People voted for this evil man’s brand of insanity TWICE.
You’ll have seen it by now, but if not, here’s the word from the CDC itself:
Table 3 shows the types of health conditions and contributing causes mentioned in conjunction with deaths involving coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). For 6% of the deaths, COVID-19 was the only cause mentioned. For deaths with conditions or causes in addition to COVID-19, on average, there were 2.6 additional conditions or causes per death. The number of deaths with each condition or cause is shown for all deaths and by age groups.
The other number of interest is the official coronadoom death total, which as of Sunday night is 167,558. Math is easy: 167,558 * 0.06 = 10,054. Rounded up, to be fair.
The remaining 157,504 died of other things—an average 2.6 other things!—with the presence of coronadoom. Some fraction of these poor people, considering false positives, died of just other things.
