Is the curve flat? Luckily for all the fearful ones, I do not decide.
The above figures are from todays report, and unless you are willing to work, they just present figures and NO context.
NOW you have some context. Here are some points.
- In 8 months, we have only tested 13% of our population, and it is beyond possible that there are more asymptomatic people than those with symptoms.
- Out of the 180,000 tested, 1%, 1 out of 100 people have tested positive.
- Out of the 2000 positive tested there are currently 32% active cases (that lasts 3-4 weeks)
- Out of the 618 that are active, today only 13 are hospitalized, with 7 of those in ICU. Where the hell is the run on beds? Oh yes, I forgot, we DEPEND on contagious people to quarantine themselves, while living in close quarters with unquarantined people. CAN YOU SAY STUPID?
- Of all of those tested positive, we have lost 20. 1%! All of which had lethal co-morbidities, which were likely the major factor in their passing. In 8 months, we lost 20. TWENTY. We lost 48 to traffic in the same timeframe. How many to other contagious illnesses? Bet they will not tell. How about the suicide rates, how many did we lose because they could not see a future? We won’t learn of that either.
Disturbed by all this?
Not me. I am furious. If what I have calculated is near the truth, I am looking up at poles with crosstrees, and thinking about hempen rope. At best, this would be malfeasance on the part of our elected officials. At worst, it is criminal. If it is wrong, then tell us how and why.
Share with friends, enemies, everyone. Cut and paste, then send to your reeve/alderman/civic representative. In addition, ship it to your MLA asking for a reply. Send it to the Minister for health in the Province, send it to the Premier, or continue to be afraid and to suffer.
