Only if you cherry pick the data to compare the peak deaths to a Sunday are deaths down 90%. Take a look at today’s over 800 death’s reported for example.
Wth are you talking about? 283 deaths on June 21 (Sunday), 292 deaths June 22. Those are the last two days for which the data was posted. If you have today's death total, I'd be a bit skeptical given that "today" has not yet concluded in The United States.
No "cherry-picking." Just went with the last two days the data is available. The trend as shown on the chart linked below is unmistakable. https://www.google.com/search?q=corona+ ... e&ie=UTF-8
Death totals in The United States are PLUMMETING. For two days in a row now, the drop is 90% and the continuing trend, as shown, is clear.
Cower if you like, but I'm reasonably young, reasonably healthy, practice good hygiene, keep my distance from vulnerable populations, and refuse to participate in your fear porn.
As our country reopens, cases may be going up as more testing occurs, but actual deaths are down, WAY down.
I generally have been skeptical too about the overreaction and media overhype of coronavirus and actually went on 4 trips during April and May. But in this case the data does seem to show that those states are likely to see significant increases in death pretty shortly for the following reasons:
-Remember that it takes 2 weeks just to have symptoms and then it can be weeks more before death. And the case numbers just started skyrocketing a few weeks ago.
-the daily hospitalization increases in those states are skyrocketing. That negates the claim that it’s omnly young people that won’t get it bad and negates the claim that the cases are just because of increased testing. If hospitalizations are dramatically increasing, that means a lot more people are getting sick which means more people will die.
Unfortunately I think the data proves this is inevitable though I hate to acknowledge it.
Cases don't = deaths. The overwhelming majority of people who get this virus survive, many without showing any symptoms at all. And, as much as some may wish it otherwise for their own perverse reasons, the data is clear and unambiguous: the death rate is collapsing.
Will there be bumps and hills in the death graph? Of course there will, that is how viruses work. But the overall trend is down.
Another item to keep in mind is that viruses typically take the low-hanging fruit, if you will, first. Once it makes its way through those vulnerable (like the over 75 population), it finds a much more robust populous upon which it can't wreak its deadly toll. That is certainly what we're seeing now and suggests that our death counts will continue to drop as susceptible hosts become more scarce.
As far as data "proving" anything "inevitable:" the "data" doesn't prove anything. It's the interpretation of that data that either validates or refutes a prediction. So far, almost every prediction based on data has been completely wrong, starting with the 2.2 million American deaths that lead to the lockdown that crippled our economy, threw millions out of work and destroyed their financial futures.
If you want to take no risk whatsoever to catch this disease, a disease that if you are reasonably healthy your chances of dying from it are minuscule, then stay home. But don't force your fear onto others.
Even in California, work is returning, because it has to. Our airports are more crowded with each passing day. While as we all know, we have a long way to go re airport traffic, but fear is losing and people are returning to the skies. The virus, as shown by the death counts, is losing.
I had four trips in June. I have four, so far, scheduled for July. Our meetings typically have four to 12 in attendance and you would be hard-pressed to tell the difference between these meetings and those in January. For me, this is approaching normal, and I have precisely zero fear.
I won't force anyone to fly. Don't anyone try to force me to stay home...
