Coronavirus Update (Live): 21,680,015 Cases and 770,087 Deaths from COVID-19 Virus Pandemic - Worldometer


Yeah, they're reopening their economies.

Canada's GDP is climbing back up. The second quarter is still down about 12% but the month of May set a single-month record, going up 4.5%. It varies by region but here, in BC, pretty much everything is open but you have to wear a mask in some places and other places where you sit down to eat or drink are at just 50% capacity.
We have 2 big challenges left. We have to safely open the schools and we have to keep the border closed.
Oh, and we have to convince young people, late teens to mid thirtys, that partying is still a bad idea.

On February 26, President Trump boasted “You have 15 people, and the 15 within a couple of days is going to be down to close to zero.

The positive side of this is the number is going down compared to peak, but it's still really high compared to almost all industrialized nations.

True, the number is "down compared to peak", but the question remains "Is it going to stay down?" and the above plus

sort of hint that it just might not.

I disagree.

What's the point? We all can see the numbers. Do you need your daily dose of misery? Do you think this thread will get the attention of the "hoaxers"? Maybe they'll start taking it serious?

I think some of you are addicted to gloom! It's not good for your immune system. Things are getting better. These death numbers will start going down quickly.

If you need a model for how to do it just follow what we are doing in Arizona.

Perhaps these figures will be of interest.

US Covid deaths/day

April: 1,975
May: 1,365
June: 798
July: 859
August: 1,056

Regards, stay safe 'n well. Remember the Big 3: masks, hand washing and physical distancing.

Yeah. Some people definitely need to change the subject.

A year from now we will have 2 deaths from C19 and you people will start threads saying "People are still dying from Covid". We have a bunch of drama queens in this country.

Yeah, they're reopening their economies.

If we're going to keep up with pointless comparisons, we might as well get a broader picture, just by way of example:

California total deaths: 11,231 out of 40 million population
Canada total deaths: 9,072 out of 38 million population (and less than 1/20th the population density)

Florida+Texas+CA total deaths: 30,954 out of 90 million population
Italy total deaths: 35,396 out of 60 million population
France total deaths: 30,410 out of 65 million population
UK total deaths: 46,791 out of 68 million population


The only thing that's particularly remarkable among the countries you listed is that Germany is such an outlier on total deaths, with only about 9200 deaths over a population of 83 million.

Makes sense to me. The virus is spread everywhere now compared to the early months. The social mobility has increased significantly over the last couple months due to more places opening up. Millions of ding dongs out on the streets blowing things up certainly hasn't helped. More cases, more deaths. Now put this into context and show us the percentage of people dying from this recently.

I don't think they understand context.

At the root of science is a thing called causality. When there's a significant difference in, for example, Covid-assigned deaths per unit of population between two countries, a scientist asks the question, 'Why?' In this instance, the answer(s) may result in saving American lives.

No Man Is an Island

No man is an island,
Entire of itself;
Every man is a piece of the continent,
A part of the main.

If a clod be washed away by the sea,
Europe is the less,
As well as if a promontory were:
As well as if a manor of thy friend's

Or of thine own were.
Any man's death diminishes me,
Because I am involved in mankind.
And therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls;

It tolls for thee.

John Donne

Regards, stay safe and well. Remember the Big 3: masks, hand washing and physical distancing.

Hi!

Thanks for taking time to respond.

Yesterday, the US Covid-assigned deaths were listed at 1,071. A single day does not indicate a trend.

Regards, stay safe 'n well. Remember the Big 3: masks, hand washing and physical distancing.

You blew it when you had the chance. Poor model to follow when you finally come to your senses.

Not if things don't change. It will be this bad next year too. Your rights have trumped reality. College campus cases are on the rise already.

If we're going to keep up with pointless comparisons, we might as well get a broader picture, just by way of example:

California total deaths: 11,231 out of 40 million population
Canada total deaths: 9,072 out of 38 million population (and less than 1/20th the population density)

You do have to adjust that "population density" to account for the fact that 80+% of Canada is unpopulated. California's population density is ~254/sq.mi. Canada's is ~11/sq.mi. but adjusted to take into account the fact that 80+% of the country is unpopulated that works out to ~55/sq.mi.

To normalize the populations then the Canadian 9,072 comes out as ~9,550 (or ~85% of California's).

Florida+Texas+CA total deaths: 30,954 out of 90 million population
Italy total deaths: 35,396 out of 60 million population
France total deaths: 30,410 out of 65 million population
UK total deaths: 46,791 out of 68 million population


The only thing that's particularly remarkable among the countries you listed is that Germany is such an outlier on total deaths, with only about 9200 deaths over a population of 83 million.

What you might not consider "remarkable" is the fact that a person picked at random in three of those countries actually has a LOWER chance of dying from COVID-19 than does a person picked at random in the United States of America. When you adjust for "ability to pay" (PPP GDP per capita) or "amount spent on healthcare" (health care spending in US$ per capita), things look rather gloomy.

Of course, if you want to look at the CURRENT daily deaths from COVID-19 then the situation in the US vis-a-vis countries of roughly the same economic clout looks positively dismal.
