A timely look back at a 6/11 post in another thread by Calbearman:

In this thread I will calculate from time to time the current death rates from coronavirus worldwide and in various countries. The data will be derived from the Johns Hopkins coronavirus website.

I have a tentative hypothesis that the worldwide death rate is currently distorted upwards by the huge numbers in China, which had grossly insufficient hospital space and likely has a medical system closer to third world than first world, and by Italy, which also has a shortage of hospital space.

The format will be Deaths/Confirmed Cases = Death Rate

As a reference point, the death rate for seasonal flu in the U.S. is about 0.10%.

Worldwide: 4,630/126,136 = 3.67%

(Editorial comment: Note that the worldwide deaths from CV are only ~20% of the >20,000 deaths from this season's flu in the U.S alone.)



Three months later it is a good time to look at your original assumptions. Clearly the severity of Covid-19 is far greater than what I believe you and many others believed 3 months ago. 115,000 deaths and about 1000 more each day. The deaths from Covid-19 are already more than 5 times the annual deaths from flu. There are many things we still don't really know but we are learning about the spread of the virus and while I believe a healthy skepticism combined with a willingness to learn from data.
............
If people would heed the warning I believe we could get back to a new normal with significantly less spread going forward. But science denial has stood in the way of dealing with this crisis. I believe your posts have been helpful in laying out data. Let's hope people can learn from it.


Now, four months later, we've just about doubled that 115K number. Shocked

Just a bad flu season, right? A really really really really really bad one. Don't let it dominate your lives if you still have them.

And now the top Pentagon leaders are having to quarantine because one of them tested positive for coronavirus.

So now we have this, combined with a White House where the President himself is quarantining and much of the White House staff are having to quarantine at home.

If there were ever a time for this country's enemies to team up and strike us…………………………………………… hoo boy. Ya just know Putin was lookin' to send a parting gift to this country in the event that Biden is elected anyway.
