And next year, according to some experts, 50%-80% of all people in the US willl show Covid exposure. So, 50-80% of deaths will be “covid deaths.” It does not mean covid will cause their death. The number of deaths caused will be measured by epidemiologists and will be a fraction of the total deaths that test positive. We need those numbers.
Yup, it is crucial to figure that out. But i don´t think everyone dying with Corona Antibodies will be counted as Corona death, but only those that die of something looking like Covid-19 and show the infection.
The headline is not useful... but it is worrying. More useful: did more people die in NY than usual this week? There might be a lot of infections and 200 covid deaths, but no excess deaths. In which case, no apparent impact from covid. We don’t know yet, and I’ll be interested to see it. My hope is mild numbers and people do ok. That’s what I’m hoping to see.
I would assume there will be less death from traffic for sure. ....
I’m hoping to see our collective effort pay off, the wave happens and we go back to normal with fewer deaths than some are implying.
That is what everybody is hoping for, and when we tally in the end we can say pretty exactly how many people died over each day in delay.
