https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2020/05/27/cdc-suggests-coronavirus-fatality-rate-higher-than-flus-but-at-least-8x-lower-than-initial-estimates/

 

So take out the 50% of deaths that happened in nursing homes.....fatality rates for general public = .013

Basically shut down the country for the Flu.  Should never happen again.  

What kind of shitty math is that? 
 

Do you think people in nursing homes don’t die from flu? What’s the mortality rate for flu if you eliminate nursing home populations lol? 
  You can’t  say something is the same as flu if you just want to change metrics to fit your agenda lol

It's Breitbart math! Also known as "math for people too stupid to think at human intelligence levels".

If you take out people that have previously tested positive for HIV, the death rate of AIDS is like .001%!

Guyz ... if you ignore old people for covid and count them for flu ... it’s pretty much the exact same! Has anyone even looked into that yet? cdc? Anyone?!!?!!!

My gf's bro tested positive today for the actual rona.

Two brothers of 3 tested for the antibodies. They were the last people I hung out with before this lockdown. I'm getting tested in two weeks. I'll be surprised if I'm not positive.

That should help the Spocks of the world. LOOK HOW MANY PEOPLE HAD IT!!!

Have you ever had the flu? Or been to a nursing home? Or drove by one? If so then you don’t have corona virus you just have the flu and luckily for you it has a 0.00046 percent death rate when you factor out the people who drive by nursing homes and you probably just have the flu anyways because 85% of people who test possible for COVID basically just have the flu. Also if you’re white you don’t have COVID you’re just feeling guilty because everyone thinks you’re racist but you’re not here’s a breitbart article that proves that

Forgot to mention, my gf’s brother works in food processing. It’s running wild at his facility, no plans to shut down.

I don't believe you. Please post a reputable article from Breitbart

https://www.foxnews.com/world/who-guidance-healthy-people-wear-masks-around-coronavirus-patients

"The World Health Organization is recommending healthy people, including those who don't exhibit COVID-19 symptoms, only wear masks when taking care of someone infected with the contagion, a sharp contrast from the advice given by American public health officials who recommend everyone wear a mask in public."

 

 

Don’t wear a mask

 

Wear a mask

 

Don’t wear a mask

 

 

 

The buffoonery would be comical if it hadn’t cost trillions.

Fuck the WHO. 

It's not a huge deal to me, weird that people are getting off on it and making it political. I expect to wear a mask when I'm in the grocery store or confined public spaces for a while. Also when flying.

Not saying everyone needs to, obviously depends on location and their own personal feelings. 

If a business demands it for entry and you don't want to abide...feel free to go elsewhere.

As I recall, one of the significant differences is that the flu mortalities are mostly young children with underdeveloped immune systems, so it might not be that different, but your point still stands: Removing the most vulnerable segment skews the actual numbers, and since so many people don't show symptoms, it'd be pretty easy for some "nobody-tells-me-how-to-live-my-life" blowhard to get it and pass it to others because he was too much of a tantrum-throwing child to cover his mouth and nose.  Those others may have higher risks, or they may have to interact with people of higher risk.

It's really not that complicated.  Maybe a guy likes his odds of not experiencing symptoms.  That's fine.  But what does he think the odds are of passing it to someone else ... who passes it to his Gammies at Sunday dinner, and she gets sick?

Pretty much.

 

Glad this Covid shit is over with though and we are allowed to gather in large crowds again.   This shit was getting retarded annoying.

Damn.....China made a good one with this.  Highly contagious, only killed old people and fades out just in time.

I know this has been mentioned but all it took was this George Floyd incident and "poof" social distancing and the Coronavirus suddenly is suddenly disappearing or at least on the back burner.
