A Graph for the Covidiots

Including the Covidiot-in-Chief.

But he won't look at it because it doesn't have his name on it.

Well, the graph isn't on FOX News, Britebart, or Qanon so it won't register with them. They'll just deny the facts with made up numbers just like their leader.

Which made up numbers?

The Death Rate?
The rate of people showing symptoms?
The date the"curve" starts?
The number of ventilators and hospital ICU suites we were gonna need?
Or one of the other overstated/inflated numbers?

It would appear, Comrade, it is just not simple enough.

Ladies and Gentlemen, we present the evidence and ask it be entered as Item “B”.

So, non-peer reviewed yet, but a Stanford University study in Santa Monica shows antibody response testing on slightly more than 3,000 people suggests that actual COVID-19 rate is 50 to 80 times higher than current estimates. There is good and bad news with this, if confirmed. The good news is we would be much closer to possible “herd immunity”, IF that proves applicable to this virus. The other good news is it would drive the death rate down significantly. The bad news is that is suggests a possible (significant) undercount in deaths from the virus so far.

Given California was an early location for outbreak, if we take a conservative view, that would put 30-50 million cases of people with antibodies, which drops nicely into the 1-2% mortality rate expected based upon current “known” U.S. cases.
