both diseases can be avoided or prevented with common sense.
“Stanford University researchers recently made headlines after testing 3,330 volunteers from Santa Clara County for antibodies against the new coronavirus.
The team concluded that 2.5 to 4.2 percent of people have already been infected—a proportion much higher than the official count suggests. This, the authors claimed, means that the virus is less deadly than suspected, and that severe lockdowns may be overreactions”
Sometimes we need to listen to doctors instead of bureaucrats.
Are face masks effective in protecting against COVID-19?
“If you are infected, the use of surgical face masks may reduce the risk of you infecting other people. On the other hand there is no evidence that face masks will effectively prevent you from becoming infected with the virus. In fact, it is possible that the use of face masks may even increase the risk of infection due to a false sense of security and increased contact between hands, mouth and eyes while wearing them. The inappropriate use of masks also may increase the risk of infection”
However, we still do not know with certainty the actual number of COVID-19 cases or deaths for multiple reasons:
and this may be the best index of the USA’s COVID-19 dangers overall. The CDC data states that the US COVID-19 related peak occurred during the week ending April 11, 2020, which has steadily declined and recently disappeared, with a total of around 90K excess deaths to date.
Information from the United Kingdom separates these excess deaths and indicates that not all such “excess deaths” truly are COVID-19 deaths.
The media continues to exclaim a resurgence and possible second wave of COVID-19 based on “new cases” and neglects that the deaths have been typically in older, sicker baseline patients, who may have likely died in the next 10-20 weeks of other causes. While young people can go out and demonstrate, they too can go to work.
COVID-19 may simply document this recurrent nature of the modern severe coronavirus disease cycle. The rates of COVID-19 total numbers will ALWAYS go up and bigger numbers result in bigger fear, until the mass of society has survived the virus and created a “herd immunity”-until the next mutation.
We should mandate publication of only daily or weekly numbers in chart form, which show the current decline (or increase), to provide a risk analysis perspective for the masses. We must also remind ourselves that the young and healthy have the lowest risk of death and that overall the death rate is around 2% of “all cases” and “cases” as well as “new cases” have yet to be clearly defined! With a damaged economy, the general population still cannot obtain protective equipment (N95 masks are not available to date) and home-made masks do not protect the wearer-but do limit spreading of secretions to others.
