    "Covid is now the No. 3 cause of death in the US -- ahead of accidents, injuries, lung disease, diabetes, Alzheimer's, and many, many other causes," said Dr. Thomas Frieden, a former director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
    The rate of deaths from Covid-19 is also much greater in the US than in many other countries," Frieden said.
    "Last week, Americans were eight times more likely to get killed by Covid than were Europeans,"

    The number of tests performed each day in the US has dropped by an average of 68,000 compared to the daily rate in late July, according to data from the Covid Tracking Project."

    I wonder if those calling it a hoax will reconsider.
    I wonder if those refusing to wear masks will reconsider.

    How many more people have to die?
    How many more have to suffer and deal with long term body system failures?
    What will it take for us to work together to stop or slow the spread?

    I think you mean, Americans had the freedom to get killed by Covid. It is all about the freedom here in the US. USA! USA! USA!

    Appeals to emotion work on many people, but there is always a part of the herd who are more interested in rational analysis than emotional appeals.

    Those people do not use phrases like "sheeple" or rail against the mainstream media for spreading the "plandemic."

    Don't forget the freedom to kill others by spreading the virus. Oh, hang on - nevermind.

    In America, there are 5.613 million confirmed cases. There are 173.8K confirmed deaths. Divide those two numbers together and you get 3.096% mortality rate.

    Even if you take the CDC assumption that the number of cases is actually around 10 times higher, that means that the mortality rate is 0.3096%.

    And that number is both 10x higher than the rate from the Candice Owen's lie and roughly 3x higher than the seasonal flu.

    3/10 of 1% using those numbers. Number of deaths is what to monitor AND, like it or not, those with comorbidities are at the highest risk. Your answer= shut down everything rather than target the at-risk

    statist gonna do what a statist gonna do

    You can just write 0.3% and the number of deaths right now is more than 1000 per day.

    Shutting down everything for a brief period of time is the best way of targeting the at-risk.

    the land down under tried that, it failed. So their answer.....do it again

    Best solution is for the at-risk to take precautions or stay put. Sorry but that is the reality. The virus is going to go through the population just like other viruses. Most won't even know that they had contracted covid and most who are aware, will have mild symptoms. We're way past testing for positives and using that as a benchmark where the need for under 5% positives is when things open. If that is the benchmark, then bus in lots of healthy folks and keep testing them. The number to monitor is deaths, not positives because negative today cold be positive tomorrow and positive today could mean you feel fine and continue to feel fine

    So what?

    Life goes on... if you are in a high risk group - then take the necessary precautions and stay home. If you are not then wear your mask in public places and use your hand sanitizer. This isn't rocket science. Most of these people would have likely died of the flu if they got it too.

    99.5% survival rate is no reason to panic and lock down the country. Every day there is some new chicken little covid thread.

    Since 170,000 dead people is not worthy of your concern, finding out many dead people it takes for you to be concerned is quite relevant.

    So, how many?

    Let's try something simpler.

    If everyone was going to die, would that concern you?

    If it would, dial it back until it stops concerning you....

    (The Cult has no sense of responsibility, do you?)

    IF IF IF IF IF

    Except the survival rate is 99.5 percent. If ifs and buts were candy and nuts we'd all have a Merry Christmas!

    Those numbers are just Covid-19.

    And there is zero evidence that the numbers are inflated in any substantial amount and there is a significant amount evidence that we are under-counting both cases and deaths.
