With the pandemic starting to wind down, maybe people will have a chance to take a rational look at what really happened over the last two years during the COVID outbreak.
The Daily Caller explains:
Since January 21, 2020, there have been 78.8 million positive COVID-19 tests in the United States, according to the CDC, and according to any expert, at least tens of millions more undiagnosed cases. As of March 1, 947,882 Americans have died of the virus, the vast majority of them elderly or with serious comorbidities.
1,433 Americans under age 18 have died with COVID-19, making up about 0.1% of total deaths. Seventy-five percent of COVID-19 deaths have been in Americans aged 65 and older, and among the vaccinated, over 75% of COVID-19 deaths occurred in people with at least four comorbidities, such as obesity, diabetes or cancer.
The COVID hysteria may take a bit longer to cure
Of course, it may take a bit longer to find a cure for the COVID hysteria:
And apparently, some people completely lost it when Florida Gov Ron DeSantis recently told some teenagers to take off their masks.
Remember, two things:
- Only 1,438 kids under the age of 18 died of COVID over the past two years, and
- Cloth facemasks are essentially useless if the actual intent was to stop the spread of COVID. READ: So, what was the point? Cloth masks allow 90% of particles to filter through giving them little ability to prevent COVID transmission, study finds
Meanwhile, the lockdowns and associated panic-demic resulted in a significant rise in suicide attempts among American youth. But hey, let’s worry about facemasks.
NBC News reports (article dated June 21, 2021):
Emergency room visits for adolescent suicide attempts soared this past summer and winter, especially among girls, perhaps in connection to America’s struggle with Covid-19, new Centers for Disease Control and Prevention data revealed Friday.
There was a 22.3 percent spike in ER trips for potential suicides by children aged 12 to 17 in summer 2020 compared to 2019, according to findings published in the CDC’s “Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report.”
That trend seemed to continue into this recently completed academic year as visits were up by 39.1 percent this winter, compared to the previous winter, the report said.
