Don't Be Fooled, Recent Coronavirus Data Suggests the Lockdowns Were a Colossal Mistake






In various states across the nation, there’s been a noticeable trend of an increase in coronavirus cases. While this fact makes the headlines, the detail that seems to get overlooked is the fact that deaths have declined. Florida, Arizona, Texas, California, and Ohio are among the states that have experienced spikes in cases but have maintained declining death rates or no spike in deaths.

How is this possible? Conventional wisdom suggests that a spike in cases should result in a spike in deaths, but that has not panned out. The protests and riots following George Floyd’s death have been going on for nearly a month now. Surely a spike in deaths should shave occurred by now. But so far, it hasn’t.

Why not?

According to Justin Hart, an information architect and data analyst from San Diego, “who” gets the virus is just as important as “how many” get the virus. “Right now the average age of infected cases has dropped nearly 20 years,” Hart told PJ Media.

White House Coronavirus Task Force Member Dr. Anthony Fauci acknowledged this fact last week: “The overwhelming majority of people who are now getting infected are young people, like the people that you see in the clips in the paper or out in the crowds enjoying themselves.”

Why does this matter, you ask? Let me explain.

Coronavirus data says risk is low for most Americans

Young people, possibly from the recent protests and riots, are likely behind the recent spike in cases, and that tells us a lot about why the data looks the way it does right now. According to the CDC’s current best estimate, the fatality rate of the coronavirus for symptomatic cases only are as follows:
  • 0-49 years old: .05%
  • 50-64 years old: .2%
  • 65+ years old: 1.3%
  • Overall ages: .4%
When you take into account that approximately 30% of coronavirus infections are asymptomatic, that drives the fatality rate down even further. “The risk of death for the general population of...

  1. Since we cant go visit an alternate universe where everyone didnt lock down to compare, there's no rational way to tell. The same is true for just about everything else in politics.

  2. "Don't Be Fooled, Recent Coronavirus Data Suggests the Lockdowns Were a Colossal Mistake"

    So, how was it a "colossal mistake"? Are you being ironic, or do you actually believe that?

  3. I don't know about other areas, but suddenly my local news stopped reporting the new hospitalizations, and is now reporting only the new cases. I suspect it is because hospitalizations are not going up, or at least not in proportion to the new cases being reported. One also has to wonder how many false positives are being produced by the tests...

  4. The "mistake" was quarantining everyone instead of quarantining just the most vulnerable. We could have kept the economy open, let the virus blow through the general population, and have had herd immunity in 6 weeks. But of course, that strategy didn't serve the interests of our power-hungry governors, or the pharma industry that stands to make billions on treatments and vaccines. Think that's a conspiracy theory? Look into Bill Gates' vaccine programs in Africa and India. Why would anyone take his advice or consider him an expert ever again?
