One in every 450 Americans now dead from Covid-19.

And it's worse in some other countries, so please act responsibly.

Get your shots, wear a mask in stores, etc., and don't spread false information in the name of Trump, Jesus and freedom.

It's almost like a new paradigm of false info and conspiracy. I'm glad I got my vaccine. Even though this vaccine isn't a 100% effective, no other vaccine is either, like for the flu. Doesn't mean people shouldn't get it tho.

It's very crazy how some people also balk at mask wearing, even though they are worn by medical professionals for a reason.
[@761112,deadgerbil] Hospitals for all the good they do are breeders of bacteria and germs that affect patients , visitors and staff.
[@822235,soar2newhighs] yeah, hospitals can be pretty bad, esp the floors. Sick people congregate there

But the last thing we need is to regress in sanitary measures to appease the ignorant, making the germs already present worse. If I have to go to a hospital and go under the knife, I don't want a knucklehead doctor saying how he can't breathe with a mask on or how he doesn't believe in sanitation

Your Information is [c=BF0000][big] Surprisingly CORRECT!![/big][/c]

[quote]One in every 450 Americans now dead from Covid-19[/quote]

Approximately 鈮 333,984,000 Americans
Divided by 450 = [c=BF0000]741,111 COVID DEATHS![/c] 馃憟馃徎 Using your Figures!


True Numbers: 鈮 333,984,000 Population
With Newest Figure of 2,219 Deaths/Million
So 333.984 Times 2,219 = [c=BF0000]741,110 Deaths[/c]


The Cute Part about Reporting Bad Things like Deaths is that No One Understands Statistics or even Fractions!

So 1 Death in 450 sounds Small!
So Does 2219 Deaths per Million!
Neither Sounds/Feels even Close to
[big][c=BF0000]741,110 COVID DEATHS!!!
[/c] [/big] killing more Americans than unintentional injuries, strokes, chronic lower respiratory disease, Alzheimer鈥檚 disease, diabetes, influenza and pneumonia and kidney disease Combined!

[big][c=BF0080]Heart Disease Deaths: 690,882 in 2020[/c][/big]

[big]Just [c=003BB2]38,680 Car Accident Deaths in 2020.[/c][/big]
[@460373,Valerian] I accept a small margin of error, yet we should expect those on the serious, critical list to be as good as dead. This edges the ratio to 1:450
[@460373,Valerian] Perhaps the most devastating figure would be how many dead people that we knew. I don't have a figure for the average number of people a person knows, but it would be an interesting calculation.

I'm only a teen, but I expect I've met 2,000 people so far. If so, this could mean that I've already lost at least 4 to covid.
BackyardShaman61-69, M
Yes sad and true and the fake propaganda is so depressing.
BackyardShaman61-69, M
Lately they鈥檙e back harping on Obama again with fake stuff, one of their moronic heroes likely said something on FOX.[@1233853,Krissta]
[@1062793,BackyardShaman] [@1233853,Krissta] They really need to stop talking about Obama. His administration actually provided a 鈥済ame plan鈥 during the Ebola scare for pandemics that Trump ignored and probably tossed.
[quote] Update: In an interview on Fox News, McConnell acknowledged that he was incorrect in his assertion that the Obama administration didn鈥檛 leave behind any kind of 鈥済ame plan鈥 regarding a pandemic threat. 鈥淚 was wrong. They did leave behind a plan so I clearly made a mistake in that regard,鈥 McConnell said.[/quote]
BackyardShaman61-69, M
[@328496,bijouxbroussard] absolutely!!
Why get a shot or shots if there is a possibility as the CDC has acknowledged that there are those who are/were 鈥 fully vaccinated鈥 and still did get covid?
Less severe disease and unlikely to be hospitalized or die. That鈥檚 why [@822235,soar2newhighs]
Iamonfire66636-40, F
It鈥檚 sad and many more unvaccinated are going to die
Nope fuck the Shots 馃槉 I ain't listening some clowns from the Mainstream Media
Wow :(
Jimmy201661-69, M
馃.....Lot of people dying for other medical reasons that just happen to have COVID at the same time....
Wrong [@383312,Jimmy2016]
[@383312,Jimmy2016] Unfortunately, if you have certain medical conditions already, catching Covid will just insure that rather than remaining illnesses that you manage, they鈥檒l kill you.
Pretzel61-69, M
I was going to call b.s. on that - and then did the math...and sonofabitc* if that isn't correct.
[@15458,Pretzel] Yes, it's correct.
ProfessorPlum7761-69, M
Don't spread false information in the name of Fauci, Dr. Leana Wen nor CNN.
[@673904,ProfessorPlum77] You must actually live in a board game...
whowasthatmaskedman61-69, M
Okay. Let me play Devils advocate here for a second. Since there seems to be a convergance of right wing stupid and anti vax/anti mask belief......Is it really in the nations long term interest to encourage those people to get vaccinated and take sensible steps to protect themselves?馃樂
[@621893,whowasthatmaskedman] Even those stupid enough to denounce facts in favor of right wing propaganda have children. We shouldn't wish death upon them due to our remaining silent.
whowasthatmaskedman61-69, M
[@1233853,Krissta] Aye.. Theres the rub.. One has to view these innocents as collateral damage. Clearly inhumane. But I cant see anyone taking these children from their parents and vaccinating them, then giving them a good education. And the ability to think for themselves. Without which they are more than likely to end up like their parents.馃樂
MarkPaul22-25, M
But, "the base" doesn't want to be told what to do.
Oberon156-60, M
Sorry but reality does not align with the media, doctors, or the politicians information.
And every doctor or nurse I know personally. [@1233853,Krissta]
eli160161-69, M
So that means 449 of every 450 are not.
[@10531,eli1601] Yes. That's the optimistic view.
[@376270,TimingQuasars] ...because facts are not allowed? Go back to giving a picture of your sister a tribute.
NotJamieM46-50, M
[@376270,TimingQuasars] you type only three words, misspell one of them (and a pretty basic word, at that), and then call someone ELSE an idiot? 馃ぃ
