Can a doctor explain this abut the death rate?


Posted: Mar 22, 2020 4:18 PM
 

I read that in US in the 2017-2018 Flu season 61,000 people died from the Flu. In the 2018-2019 Flu season, that number was 34,200. So far, the coronavirus has killed 414 in US.

These numbers are not close. We were not concerned about 61,0000 2 years ago, and yet we are in FEAR over 414 deaths. I know the number will likely grow, but will it grow so much higher than 61,000 that we should all self-quarantine?

This is a serious question being asked for a friend.

Listen to this interview, you will feel better and feel smarter (before the peanut gallery chimes in about healthcare system falling apart, not enough beds, equipment, etc.):

Oh yeah, when I want solid medical advice, I look to Colin Cowherd and the guy from loveline.

My preference for being lectured about anything important is to have it done by the smartest super geniuses in our society: liberal celebrities.

I appreciate the factious satirical video, but really, the information and message in the video I posted is what every American should focus on, regardless if Colin called Clemson a "fraud" 3 years ago or not...anyone who doesn't take the time to watch it just has their own agenda. This is a serious situation but no need for hysteria. Facts back that up. Be smart, be safe, but do not panic.

My post was for MarcusA. Because when leftist liberals do it, it’s A-Ok. They love them some liberal celebrity lecturing. It’s the best.

So you’re shaming me by not wanting to listen to celebrities by posting a video with more celebrities? You’ve been holding your breath underwater longer than is recommended.

....And there it is. It's the interview, not the host, blows my mind how some people just love to bash no matter what (replies were in less time than even being able to watch the video posted--so case and point, just love to push their own agendas without even listening. LOL!)

Thank you for that video. It has indeed calmed me down. But there's one thing that still worries me-- just how far up the Savannah river can we get a Naval hospital ship??

That was a nice video. I am not sure it fully addresses

my questions, but it seemed logical. And it did seem to indicate that we might be over reacting. I look at states like Idaho, Wyoming, SD and ND, and wonder why they would need to "Shelter in place". I don't think those 4 states have much more than 100 cases combined. I am hoping someone has their finger on the pulse of this and determines in a week or two that we are free to move about our cities again. I'm okay shutting down large, high density arenas. I want restaurants to re-open. I want department stores to re-open.

Anybody who isnt in it and suggests that its overblown is removed from it and should be on their knees saying thank you.

Because we are not even remotely close to having diagnosed everyone who is infected.

It would suggest the death rate is lower than the flu. All of the fear is being driven by an irresponsible and unaccountable media. If the limits on travel and commerce continue much longer it will take years for our economy to recover from our self inflicted depression.

He is NEVER held hostage by or manipulated by the media. He always calls them out and spits in their face. He's the one that declared a national emergency. He's the one who shut down the borders. He's the one who proposed trillions of dollars of emergency spending. He's the one whose task force is suggesting drastic societel behaviors that dramatically impact the economy. He's the one who spends hours every day in front of the cameras feeding the media frenzy. The most powerful, most scrutinized man in the world is driving this. If the media is behind this, he's either totally ignorant or he's in on it. Which is it?

Good interview that 44 posted... And I do really hope that we learn from this and can reduce the flu rate in years to come. Don't know for sure if CDC tracks this info or not, but I wonder how many of those flu deaths were people that 1. Didn't get a flu shot, and 2. How many were in nursing homes where irresponsible relatives who had the flu or their petry dish children had the flu and went to grandma and pa's house, bed etc.

In addition, I'd suggest reading some CDC materials where your question is posed. A lot is the spread rate and the timeline.

Because you're comparing 12 months of numbers versus 3 weeks. Let's come back next March and compare numbers

I'm guessing you don't want a real answer so this may be pointless. But the Fatality rate of COVID-19 is significantly higher than that of the Flu.

That 61,000 number was with like 65 million people having the Flu. If 65 million people get COVID-19, more than a million people will die.

I'm really not sure why people are struggling to understand that. That's why everyone is taking it so seriously.

The number diagnosed with COVID-19 isn't accurate right now either so there is that

Sure but it isn’t as high as people want to believe.

Everyone didn’t have it in December like they keep claiming.

Influenza is a known , it's something we can combat with vaccines .
This virus is new , or novel as they say ... and it's spread and ultimate toll are far from known .
I guess what I am trying to say is stay inside and don't touch your face .

Search Youtube for "Peak Prosperity". Guy is a PhD from Duke and explains everything very well.
