Dr. Fauci Drops The Truth About The Coronavirus Death Rate…This Is A Must-Read

(Tea Party 247) – The country has been on virtual lockdown for the last two weeks due to the novel coronavirus’ spread within our borders.

Schools have been cancelled, millions are out of work as businesses close down, and the whole country is being advised to social distance and avoid gatherings of 10 or more.

California and New York are on complete, actual lockdown, as residents are banned from leaving their home for anything other than groceries, medical care, or to attend essential jobs.

When these states first announced these draconian measures to stop the spread, there had been, as The Gateway Pundit notes, “16,067 cases of the coronavirus reported in the US at the time,” and “219 deaths in the US due to coronavirus at that time.”

These numbers have dramatically increased, of course, and the United States has surpassed every other nation in total number of cases.

But not deaths.

When New York and California first announced their shutdowns, Dr. Anthony Fauci of the White House coronavirus task force told reporters at a briefing, “I strongly agree” with the measures taken by these states to stop the spread.

This was, however, based on the “highly flawed models on the coronavirus that were being peddled at that time,” TGP reports.

However, this week, Dr. Fauci has appeared to change his tune.

He has co-authored a report on the COVID-19 virus in the New England Journal of Medicine.

In the report, Dr. Fauci asserts that the mortality rate of the virus may be much closer to a bad flu.

This has been asserted by many for months.

From BlackJack on Twitter:

On the basis of a case definition requiring a diagnosis of pneumonia, the currently reported case fatality rate is approximately 2%.4 In another article in the Journal, Guan et al.5 report mortality of 1.4% among 1099 patients with laboratory-confirmed Covid-19; these patients had a wide spectrum of disease severity. If one assumes that the number of asymptomatic or minimally symptomatic cases is several times as high as the number of reported cases, the case fatality rate may be considerably less than 1%. This suggests that the overall clinical consequences of Covid-19 may ultimately be more akin to those of a severe seasonal influenza (which has a case fatality rate of approximately 0.1%) or a pandemic influenza (similar to those in 1957 and 1968) rather than a disease similar to SARS or MERS, which have had case fatality rates of 9 to 10% and 36%, respectively.2

  1. In response to MAZ, I quote directly from Fauci`s Editorial in the New England Journal of Medicine,
    March 26, 2020 ” –the case fatality rate may be considerably less than 1%. This suggests that the overall clinical consequences of Covid-19 may ultimately be more akin to those of a severe seasonal influenza (which has a case mortality rate of approximately 0.1% )”
    The above represents Dr Fauci`s most recent opinion about the mortality rate of Covid-19 and published in a peer reviewed journal.
    You have claimed that Dr Fauci repeatedly stated a mortality rate 10X greater than flu.For credibility
    you must cite actual dates and times when these purported statements were made.

  2. ICU’s are being overwhelmed. Care for non-Covid is being hampered. And this is only the beginning. Even if the death rate is less than 2%, the health care system is being strained to its limits.

    • The health care system in three hotspots in the country. We still will be wise to be hygienic and finish this quarantine. Then anyone coming in from out of country goes into self quarantine. If you break self quarantine than make laws to punish these people. And close both borders to illegal entry. And vote trump2020

  3. The new ” climate change ” . They can’t shut the world down one way, they try another. Lots of arrows in their quiver when you have all the money in the world.

  4. The problem is that if you let everyone catch it, so many people will be sick that the hospitals won’t have any room. If that happens, the death rate will skyrocket. Right now there are a lot of middle-aged people that catch the Coronavirus. And some of these people end up in ICU at the hospital. Most of these people recover. But if there was no room in the ICU and these people didn’t get proper treatment, many of them would die. So the bottom line is that with proper treatment, the death rate might be pretty low, probably well under 1%. But without proper treatment, the death could be far higher. That is why we need to drastically slow down the spread, so the hospitals don’t get overwhelmed.

  5. From the beginning this virus has been used as a political weapon against trump . They wanted to back him into a corner where if he did nothing > critical , fails to do enough > critical again . The reality is this virus is media overblown by a country mile by the left to crash the economy & have confusion & anxiety reign amongst the citizens . Left tries the stupid ass impeachments , don’t work X 2 . They are desperate for ANYTHING to get him out . They know Biden is a blithering idiot , it is pretty obvious .
    The statistics do not bear out that it is even more dangerous than the common cold . With a mortality rate that is well below 1% . What is not even being calculated is how many of the old & complicated ones may have died anyway ? Thought about that ? The whole thing is complete BS ! For idiot mr gator , yes there is no cure for the common cold virus , your right ,, Geez

  7. He states himself that the death rate will be lower than publicly acknowledged. In print. And others in this field, epidemiology, including Gupta of Oxford and the Chairman of epidemiology at Stanford said this in recent weeks.

    Its a scam. I work at a Hospital that has been waiting for the infamous wave of infected for two weeks.

    No wave. A trickle. We get a trickle. Most places get a trickle. Places that slowed down their own response to the outbreak, namely Calif and NYC got bombed. Yet the rest of Cali., outside LA is the trickle model. Same for the rest of NY state.

    Clean out your headgear. You’re being played like a hick in a casino. There aren’t 5 aces. Get a grip.

    • I could not agree more. This a fraud being perpetrated on the world wide public and especially in the USA. There is a reason behind this fear being perpetrated, either for profit or power, but something not good for the public in general.

    • Sonoma county.ca We have two. One imported from travis AFB. The other is an unknown. They will not name him/her. Great. So if i just met this guy/gal i have to wonder.

  8. This message is nothing but political junk. Read the words that aren’t highlighted words– “assume”–.. I am ashamed at how the president I voted for has handled this emergency from day #1. As a healthcare professional I am appalled by teaparty247 and most of my fellow republicans for being so brainwashed they cannot think logically for themselves. My grandmother and my mother have this virus and it is not a political weapon etc… It is a real virus that can and will kill many more than what you typically get from “the flu” that we are all used to being exposed to every year.

  9. Mr. RJ

    Time to open up the areas that are not as effected.

    I hope here in Iowa the Governor will open up areas here in our State.

    We have 235 cases with 3 deaths. Deaths were all older age around 80 with other
    physical problems.

  10. If this country is desperate about COVID-19 why is Dr. FAuci against other studies proving that HYDROXYCHLOROQUINE plus AZITHROMYCIN combination is effective almost 100% against COVID-19???? Other side of the aisle we all know have been wishing for the economy downfall of the USA by all means. It’s their last resort to see the fall of the economy and they are excited about their wish being fulfilled. We all know that Dr. Fauci is a remnant of the past administration, not appointed by the current administration. Now, do you trust this man?

  11. Unless you have some other medical condition that compromises your health the survival rate is 100%. Always reported are 2 numbers. The number infected and the number who have died. They never report the number of people who have recovered. Manipulation at its best.

    • I would say you refuse to read the death statistics that are presented each and every day. Know of what you speak, Markus. Certainly hope you’re not one of the statistics.

  12. Fauci is a vaccine pusher and board member of Moderna. He and Bill Gates want to institute mandatory vaccine programs including a certificate for travel. Without your vaccines you cant travel. Wake up and research Event 201.

  13. Que sera, sera. Every flu, virus and pandemics are different as is their mortality rate. Further, the manner in which they are treated, country by country, factoring in age and existing medical issues, determine what results will be.

    There is no crystal ball. We won’t know the facts, until it is over. Everyone stop putting your spin on what you think, believe or feel. Nothing is real. Everyone feels, thinks and believes differently, that can change daily. Que sera, sera.

  14. It’s like climate change and the Russians, Covid 19 is a political weapon, not a disease.
    I wonder how many kommiecrats will name their gender neutral offspring Covid?

  15. Dr Fauci has repeatedly stated that mortality rate of CoronaVirus TEN TIMES(10 X) greater than flu. Stop misrepresenting got political purposes.

    • Reminiscent of a bad flu? Haha! The Spanish Flu of 1918-1920 killed. FIFTY MILLION PEOPLE worldwide.
      And don’t let the official numbers fool you… There are a SHITLOAD of people out there that are infected and spreading this tbat are bot among the officially counted. Most will not show up on the radar until they require hospital intervention or family calls a meatwagon.
      We will not even see the peak of this until mid-May.
      So relax, get comfortable, and find a new hobby to do at home. Anyone tbat tells you this will only be snother couple of weeks in duration? Are full of shit.
