CNBC had Scott Gottlieb on pitching more doom and gloom and fear about the coronavirus. Here’s the truth about COVID-19. Ask yourself this: why is Scott Gottlieb the only guy CNBC ever has on? Why doesn’t CNBC have doctors on with other opinions about COVID-19?
For example, the death rate is 1.4% of those that contract the virus; however, that headline number is extremely misleading as it doesn’t include age.
A whopping 74% of the 1.4% that die from the coronavirus are over the age of 65. For those under 65, the death rate plunges to about 0.36% which is a little deadlier than the seasonal flu. In other words, the odds are 99.6% that you will survive the coronavirus if you are under the age of 65.
If you are 50 or younger, the news gets even better. The death rate plunges to 0.09% which is about as deadly as the typical seasonal flu. In other words, if you are 50 or younger, there is a 99.9% chance you will survive the coronavirus.
I use California death stats to calculate these numbers. Please go here and check all my numbers, you will find that I’m 100% correct in my calculations.
As a society, simply by sheltering those 65 and older, we’ve massively reduced the death rate of the coronavirus which is why we had a surge in cases during the summer but never got a surge in deaths.
Isn’t it interesting how Comcast’s news units are putting maximum fear into the population because of the 2020 Presidential election. It appears the pumpdemic is on as maximum doom and gloom and fear is propagated in order to control people and influence them to vote for Biden because of the pandemic.
At the same time, these news groups and big tech companies block the news that Joe Biden let the H1N1 pandemic infect over 60 million Americans, 10x more than the coronavirus has infected.
