I did a little figuring today

19,400,000 cases with 330,000 deaths = 0.017% death rate/99.93% survival rate.

I told this to a friend. She said “Tell that to the families of the 330,000 that have died.

And I thought to myself “Justify it to the how many people who have lost their jobs, their BUSINESSES, their way of life, their homes, savings, and whatever else…..”

Which is worse?

A friend’s mom just passed. Yes, she got Covid 10 days before she died. She also had congestive heart failure, COPD, smoked like a chimney after losing part of a lung to cancer, and numerous other things. What killed her.

Congestive heart failure. Two valves in her heart no longer worked. It was a matter of time.

I feel bad he lost his mom. But he is realistic about it. She did NOT die of Covid. She died of CHF.

I tell people of the flu that went through my school system when I was in 10th or 11th grade.

Out of the 30 students in one of my classes, 4 of us remained at the end of the 2 week session. We didn’t even have a teacher. We stayed in school. No quarantine, no masks, no obsessive hand washing, no PHYSICAL (social distancing is beyond a stupid term because that is NOT what you do) distancing, schools stayed open, we soldiered through it. I never ended up with it despite classmates dropping like flies.

Within a month, that flu had run its course, it was over and done with.

I know everyone has different beliefs about this. I, for one, am sick of being blasted because I am questioning the CONSTANT inconsistencies between the American population and our beyond stupid government.

You all should be questioning too. If that ugly bitch pelosi can go unmasked to her salon, when Walmart, Menards, Home Depot, Lowe’s, Target, etc can be open, why can’t I go to church?

Makes NO sense to me.

  1. I cannot speak for the US, because I have no idea, but here the main problem is that the hospitals are now being overwhelmed by very sick covid patients, meaning that all scheduled operations and treatments – including cancer care – are having to be put on hold. People are dying because the health system is being overwhelmed and many more are dying not with covid, but because of covid. Here, too, there are all manner of inconsistencies in the government’s approach but, by and large, I think people will just suck it in until the vaccine (please) starts to make a difference.

  2. Well after having my husband in a small local hospital for 3 days because where he needed to go was FULL, and then he ended up in the Covid infected ward…you can go ahead and tell me about survival rate all you want. But sorry, it doesn’t cut it with those who have mothers, fathers, husbands, or wives who are at high risk.
    3 days in hell.
    Sure there is a good survival rate. Also consider that 10 to 15 % of those who become sick have health issues for the rest of their lives.
    Please understand how the medical field works. Covid will kill my husband. And you know what ails him, however he can die in a split minute from any number of his ailments. Covid will contribute to his death. Therefore it would be a Covid death.
    Health care needs help in this upside down world. Health care should be available to everyone. That is my take.

    1. I get it Val. EVERYONE is overwhelmed. And if those worthless MORONS……ALL OF THEM…in Washington would figure out THEY work for US , maybe things would change.

  3. You know how I feel about this issue. Low death rate? Tell it to the overwhelmed hospitals and health care workers. I don’t know about you but I don’t ever remember refrigerated trucks being needed to store the dead. The minute this pandemic became political we were doomed. Leadership is important, too bad we didn’t have any.

    1. I have relatives that are nurses. I also have friends that are. I am not saying one is worse than the other. But people who are losing everything because of ALL the morons in Washington are feeling just as overwhelmed.

  4. st read that California has the highest number of covid cases yet they are one of the strictest on lockdowns etc. My state, Florida also has one of the highest numbers of cases and we are pretty much open now, so I don’t know what the answer is to all this. Most churches are open and some require masks, some don’t. I guess it boils down to individual choice and doing whatever makes a person feel safe. I do know the country cannot stay on lockdown forever because so many businesses have closed or are about to close. So many people have lost jobs and there are going to be tons of people out on the streets and that will be a whole other issue. And the amount of contradictory information being put out there does not help one bit. It is one big mess, that is all I know.
