There are numerous article out there right now indicating that the fatality ratio of this corona virus looks to be in the same range as that of a seasonal flu. Dr. Fauci keeps saying that he thinks this virus will be a seasonal flu. But, of course.
Now, there’s a study by an Israeli scientist who tells us that this virus has its own pattern and that this patterns works itself out over a set period of time, lockdown or no. He marvels at the fear factor at work. It’s like a seasonal flu. He asks: was this exponential growth? His answer: no. (Was I not mocked for not understanding that we were dealing with exponential growth——–while I was looking at a chart that was going up linearly!)
Frankly, I’m tired of this nonsense. I live in California. Six weeks of this virus: about 800 deaths. We all mourn those who die; but 800 deaths is next to nothing. In the meantime I have to wear a facemask to buy detergent, can’t go to the library or the beach. Easter Sunday didn’t happen in so many ways. Why isn’t life back to normal right now? Why? A Democratic governor. We’re witnessing the politicization of science before our eyes by people who can’t function rationally. Alas.
And, how did we get here? Bureaucratic mismanagement, as usual. Our friend, Neil Ferguson, has published models over the years that did exactly what his latest one did: completely miss the mark by orders of magnitude. This isn’t the first time. Why did anybody who knows anything pay any attention to him?
I might not respond very much. This is being so depressingly mismanaged.
