    Media still using "asymptomatic" to describe a mixed population of true asymptomatic cases and pre-symptomatic. Not helpful that the author apparently misses this and warns that asymptomatic cases can cause symptoms...in someone else. How many of these people developed symptoms in the next week or two? It's a fine point with respect to contagiousness, but the confusion of those two groups is a big chunk of why people think they can ignore the disease altogether.

    Agree, and if the number is only 40% that still is frightening as hell.
    Ooof!

    50-64 → = 0.05%
    __65+ → = 0.9%

    COVID-19 IFR percentages for New York City by age based on seroprevalence:

    18-44 → = 0.09%
    45-64 → = 0.8%
    65-74 → = 2.6%
    _75+ → = 7.1%


    Also, according to the CDC people aged 20 to 44 accounted for 20% of the coronavirus hospitalizations in the U.S. whereas for the '17/18 flu season people aged 18 to 49 accounted for only 10% of the influenza hospitalizations.

    On top of which there's a much higher percentage of people susceptible to SARS2 compared with the flu virus.

    And comparing flu numbers from prior years with no social distancing to Covid numbers from a few months of social distancing is apples to oranges. And comparing a bug for which we have a somewhat effective vaccine every year to a bug against we have no defense other than avoiding other people is apples to potatoes.

    So influenza is life threatening if you are in an extremely compromised physical state and or too fucking stupid to get a flu shot. Covid is life threatening if you are a human being in 2020. Why the hell do people continue trying to compare the 2?

    Wow indeed, that's the most evil politics I've heard of in this country. I hope it's broadcast on the major outlets, and that those culpable are prosecuted. Damn, it's a sad day.

    Uhhh. Do we have a “Bad covid takes” thread?

    Over 90% of Italy’s dead had pre existing conditions.

    40-50% of covid deaths in the US are in nursing homes....

    One also has to wonder what flu deaths would look like if states were to mandates all influenza patients becsebt to nursing homes...

    I don't often zuckerbitch
    and I had it on mute to not wake the betters
    so I aint sure what politics bros talkin bouts
    but gentle giant newfs gods make me smile
    thanks
    well one of employees lives with a person who tested positive
    hes under quarantine and gitting tested
    He works on our bike side of the warehouse and I spend less time there
    Monday 2/3 of us worked and we had our first bbq communal meal
    I don't remember if he worked
    I know I skipped sitting down at the break room tables to eat
    cause I always eat and share mine at my mount bench with my newf partner
    and there is only 1 person who I have daily closer than 6' for 15min contact with
    I don't wear the bandana or buff all the time but I do when I enter others space
    I hope it all works out for all of us
    utahs been doing a banner job of contact tracing infected and slowing the potential spread and crushing the curve
    our peak keeps being pushed back july or aug now so its not surpsing to see the 14% infection increase as we test more
    and attempt to put people back to work
    I don't eat out much but hectors reopening was the last store/resturant in the millcreek strip mall to reopen after most closed

    Our best hope is that the Trump family lines up and pulls up their sleeves for a rushed shot.

    Apparently the poster above is completely oblivious to the heavy irony of his statement.

    That seems to be what Como and other governors were thinking when they ordered nursing homes to take covid patients.

    No. Many suffered and died because of governors horrible policy decisions.

    But I’m sure most here will ignore this fact because the majority who made the blunder are democrats.
