Covid19 How many in your state or country?

Recommended Posts

Declining daily deaths from the plague are always a welcome thing!

Those are positive tests - 50,000 is a lot of people.  I suppose the numbers could be much higher, I've only got the official statistics.  

Really a strange thing as you can get it and not know it all the way to get it and croak with a tube down your throat.

I'm doing my best to keep from getting it but these local bozos act like it's not even around.

See, that's the thing. As there are more and more test, the death rate will continue to drop. Meaning your odds of DYING go way down. WAY DOWN...

That's why a lot of the "Bozo's" are acting normal. It's because they are not afraid of getting it. They know they'll get over it and be fine. That's me. Not afraid. 

As bad as it's been in NYC and stuff, it's simply not killing large masses of people here in the Heartland. There's not a single death from it in my County, and we have a County with zero cases. Yet those people are told to cower in there houses. It's stupid.

They should be afraid of getting it,  the hospital where I was taken following my heart attack last year has been converted to cardiac/COVID-19, everything else has moved to another facility and that's a big hospital.

The CDC has a feature where you can see cases by zip code, my little town has 0, the town over had 11 last time I checked it.  That doesn't sound like very many but it can spread like crazy.  

Count your blessings if you're in a rural area and it hasn't hit yet.  

The wife works for the local hospital system, it's a mistake to downplay the seriousness of this.

Almost time to go to work so enough pretending to be Marcus Welby, MD on some guitar forum.

Wait ... Are you saying for each negative test they do, your odd of dying change?    Your odds of dying stay exactly the same.   You just have better data about it. Statistics are tricky.

So if we test more and more people for cancer do your odds of DYING from it go way down, WAY DOWN?

People aren't afraid of getting it.  People have been told by their doctors, not the media, not the president, their doctors, NOT to get it.  There's a big difference.

Go on a cruise, wear that fearlessness on your sleeve brutha.  Get out there!  Don't let THE MAN keep you down MAN!!!  Be the PATRIOT you love to tell everyone you are!!!!

If I were over 60 and/or had health conditions, I'd stay the hell away from it.  Since I'm not in either category (although by age I'm getting close) I'm not very concerned about it.  Plus, I know that if I haven't already had it, it's only a matter of time until I do.   But I actually think I've already had it.

How is my recognition of the reality that I've either already had, or will likely get this infection disrespectful to anyone?

He never said he was not concerned for others! He said he was not concerned about catching it himself.

Gee, talk about misreading something!!![-(

My primary risk for exposure is going to work.  Should I stop working?  Should all doctors stop working?  Maybe anyone who hasn't had the virus yet should be killed because they could get it and if so they could spread it.  That would save lives, right?

BTW, you do know that we use PPE and that if a health care worker becomes ill we are out for 2 weeks for patient safety.

Here's the latest ILI graph from the CDC.  This reflects "influenza-like-illness" activity across the US.  That includes Covid illnesses.  It's not based on tests or deaths but rather medical visits for flu like illness/symptoms.  It's not specific for anything but it is a good indicator of the overall illness burden and trend.  We are now well below baseline and falling fast.

Is there a chart for hospital admissions? Not ONE person who has had this virus  that i know personally visited a doctors office! They did not want them in there since  there were no tests (had to be on your deathbed and admitted to the hospital to get one) and as of yet they couldn't do anything anyway so medications were called into a pharmacy and you wait it out. Your chart means nothing.

Yep.  Gotta figure less people are going to the doctor's office and that will show in the stats too.

First of all, it's not my chart.  It's the CDC's chart.  

So, of all the people you know who "had this virus", who didn't go to a doctor and couldn't get a test, how do you know they had it?

They are mainly going off the stats from hospitals since that is the only place you can get tested right now for the most part.

Knew that was coming! Let me edit my statement although changing the wording doesn’t change the facts. “Had flu like symptoms”.  How’s that....How do you know they didn’t?

Who is "they"?  

Who says you can only get tested at a hospital?   Simply not true.

So that's the standard now?  How do we know they didn't??  Do you know how many things cause flu like symptoms?  Hum, that's right, you don't.

The people who accumulate statistical data are they.   And they are not seeing much from doctors offices because a lot of them are closed.   Not true?  How many did you check here in New York?
