Covid Survivor Rates
« on: Tue Apr 20, 2021 - 20:42:05 »

According to the WHO corona virus dashboard: as of Apr 19, 2021 there were approximately 140,886,773 confirmed cases and 3,012,251 deaths.

That translates to roughly a 97.86% survival rate. (close enough to be called 98% in the new dumbed-down math.)

So even when people come down sick with the covid thingy, their chances of getting over it are very good, i.e. excellent.


NOTE: The percentage given is global. The survival rate relative to USA cases is likely to be higher seeing as how American sterilization, sanitation, hygiene, and diet are, on average, quite a bit better than some areas of the world that I could name.

One of our long-time family friends came down with covid this past week. His case isn't serious enough for hospital. He can breathe okay but his tummy doesn't feel right, his head swims a bit, and he feels tired a lot.

Ironically, our friend is required to wear a mask all day every day on the job and yet still came down with it. He's a bit ticked off because he was led to believe that masking would protect him from the bug.

He needs to get a vaccine that probably won't keep him from getting sick or spreading it either.  ::geek:: But he will feel morally superior.

but most of all when he's outside in the wide open, be sure to wear two masks. Compliance is the only thing that works.........sort of.........sometimes.

Our friend's disappointment isn't due to faulty logic, rather, due to being misled by faulty information; for example:

"Wear a mask, Save a life"

That wording is misleading. It ought to say you "could" save a life.

Quite a bit of the information out there about covid is written and spoken like propaganda, i.e. it contains truth, but in some instances not the whole truth. I can't say whether these half truths are deliberately meant to mislead people, but nevertheless, intentional or not; it's causing people to go along with some wrong ideas about this disease.
