I'm sure it's a similar situation in Africa. Based on that study on India, it's likely their real infections number is well north of 500 million.That's pretty crazy if that's really the case. How many other countries have under counted the death toll?
All these statistics just get everyone arguing on the numbers ... but one thing that can't really be denied is a hell of a lot of people on Earth have died in the last 18 months.
If 4M have died in India it kind of reminds me of this old Planet P song.
Yes 2020/2021 flu season was extraordinarily mild. But there are reports that this could be a rebound year due to that fact and with less people having some natural immunity from the previous season. Last season also showed a significantly higher flu vaccination rate.The entire flu season numbers were way down for 2020-2021 vs 2019-2020 flu season due to all the risk mitigation practices used for Covid. It will be interesting to see how all the kids now attending in person learning at schools fair this winter, even with the risk mitigation practices going on.
I think you meant 99.997% SURVIVED, not died.I looked at total deaths and it was 412 people under 18 for all 50 states. So about 8 per state. Yet we are supposed to jab people 12 and over. That might make sense if everyone else in the world who wanted one had one.
From the CDC, 99.997% of people under 20 die from covid.
Israeli study, people who have had and reco ered from covid are 27 times better protected than people who never had it but got jabbed.
My friend says that if only one car in every 14,000 catches fire, nobody should be worried about it. No reason to do a recall.Here ya go ... https://finance.yahoo.com/news/gm-tells-bolt-ev-owners-231849920.html
... checkout the cost of the recall.
" GM in August widened its Bolt recall to more than 140,000 vehicles to replace battery modules, at a cost now estimated at $1.8 billion after reports of 10 fires. The automaker said it would seek reimbursement from GM battery supplier LG. "
I must say, this is amongst the weirdest replies I’ve seen you post so far.Opinions | Natural immunity to covid is powerful. Policymakers seem afraid to say so. (msn.com)
“More than 15 studies have demonstrated the power of immunity acquired by previously having the virus. A 700,000-person study from Israel two weeks ago found that those who had experienced prior infections were 27 times less likely to get a second symptomatic covid infection than those who were vaccinated. This affirmed a June Cleveland Clinic study of health-care workers (who are often exposed to the virus), in which none who had previously tested positive for the coronavirus got reinfected. The study authors concluded that “individuals who have had SARS-CoV-2 infection are unlikely to benefit from covid-19 vaccination.” And in May, a Washington University study found that even a mild covid infection resulted in long-lasting immunity.”
“Downplaying the power of natural immunity has had deadly consequences. In January, February and March, we wasted scarce vaccine doses on millions of people who previously had covid. If we had asked Americans who were already protected by natural immunity to step aside in the vaccine line, tens of thousands of lives could have been saved. This is not just in hindsight is 20/20; many of us were vehemently arguing and writing at the time for such a rationing strategy.”
“One reason public health officials may be afraid to acknowledge the effectiveness of natural immunity is that they fear it will lead some to choose getting the infection over vaccination. That’s a legitimate concern. But we can encourage all Americans to get vaccinated while still being honest about the data. “
Hello; There is more worth reading in the article. It is an opinion piece but does have links to some information. One link is below.
Booster shots won’t stop the delta variant. Here’s the math to prove it. - The Washington Post
Speaking of Tesla, OK, maybe very peripherally Tesla related …
Oops that was supposed to be posted right after the Tesla comment, hahaha, it was sitting unposted for like an hour
I need to watch one of those launches up close - from our place, I can see a light go up during a SpaceX launch, and a light from the booster coming back down, but that's it.We could see it from the end of the street / beach cross over, I took a couple of very mediocre-at-best pics (it was pretty hazy last night), just amazing though, it's kind of more about the experience of seeing it vs. crappy iPhone pics
