Of course it is overblown. It was a manufactured crisis

So now you believe thew CDC, interesting. Only 2% of the 185,000+ died from COVID.
That is amazing what a wonderful thing this president has done, he can coerce and federal agency to say what he wishes!

Really?! Better impeach him (again) then!

Or maybe you should *read* the article. Naw. That would take thinking and why think when the MSMs tell you what to think already.

Although this article is accurate, it is not correct.

Yes, only 6% of people who died of COVID ONLY had COVID. But, we are American. We are fat, diabetic, out of shape and unhealthy. It is nearly impossible to get an accurate number on something like this. What we can see, is that SOME areas are at significantly higher risk than other areas, and that is because of mitigation measures.

Busy cities are hot spots, because of the lack of social distancing. Areas like Florida and Texas as well, because the lack of use in mask wearing. COVID does not seem to be a significant threat at all for those below 45 and in good shape.

This is a pretty straight forward situation to handle, but actually implementing it is difficult. Keep your distance. Wear a mask. Separate when symptomatic.

Yes. All those things you mentioned were here for the last several decades - long before Covid. I am struggling to see what is not "correct" about the article. Can you clarify?

SGT Heller, Interesting, the exact same thing could and can be said about seasonal influenza. It is also interesting that it appears to spread in exactly the same way.
Maybe we should compare the numbers for the flu from 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, or even 30 years ago. I am positive that we could also go back to the 1950s and find the exact same personal hygiene recommendations (minus the mask) in handling an outbreak of this nature, though they did not recommend overall social distancing.

We know this isn't as big as it was put out to be. I am not arguing that. My point is, accurate data can not be gathered due to those other factors since they are synergistic.

The article is misleading in the fact that only 6% died from ONLY COVID. Someone with COPD may not have died FROM COVID, but COVID certainly exacerbated their COPD which killed them. There are PLENTY of cases in which people were wrongfully labeled as a COVID death, when they MOI had absolutely nothing to do with COVID. But it was ruled COVID, because they were COVID + at the time of death.

While I do not believe 6% is a truly accurate representation for the reasons listed above, I do think it is EXTREMELY close to the true number though.

SSG (Join to see) - Considering that you are a health care professional, I suggest that you return to your earlier statement and pull out a dictionary and look up the definition of accurate, correct, and synonym. Then after that pull out whatever device that you use for research and search for accurate versus correct and then pull out or use an electronic thesaurus and learn what a synonym is.
I would then advise you to then go and read the CDC report for yourself. I would also suggest that you check the COVID19 report referenced against previous CDC mortality morbidity reports at the intervals that I suggested in my response. In conjunction with I would also check-out the CDC tables regarding the seasonal flu for the past 20 to 30 years, since they (the CDC) are actually starting to do that and being quite circumspect about it since their earlier statements about not making comparisons with the seasonal flu.
