(Tea Party 247) – The coronavirus crisis is causing a lot of problems for the country and not all of it is directly related to the physical effects of the illness. There are a lot of people getting seriously ill and quite a few who are actually dying from the virus, but what’s worse is that the “cure” for the disease — social distancing — might be worse off than the actual sickness itself.
Due to shutdown orders from many local and state government officials, many “non-essential” businesses have been forced to shut down, which means they aren’t producing products and services and thus not making any money. Tons of people have lost their jobs and many others have actually lost their businesses due to this crisis situation.
One of the biggest issues we’ve been facing with all of this is a lack of solid information analyzed by trustworthy experts to help us navigate the dangers posed by the illness so that we can make sound decisions about reopening the economy.
Of course, Democrats don’t want the economy made open because then there’s no reason to ask for more “relief money,” which is just an excuse to craft another bill with a bunch of goodies from their wishlist attached to it.
Well, new studies are revealing the truth about the coronavirus death rate that everyone needs to see.
Here’s more from Gateway Pundit:
Initial data out of New York show a pattern consistent with the rest of the world – the elderly and the sick are almost exclusively at risk by the coronavirus. Individuals without pre-existing conditions and younger Americans under the age of 65 are at a very very low risk of dying from the coronavirus.
Steve Elliott Grassfire reports today that the “New York Coronavirus Data Confirms EVERYTHING about age and condition of victims, meaning it’s time for a more targeted strategy”.
Data was finally located related to the China coronavirus deaths in New York:
We’ve been searching and searching for REAL U.S. DATA on COVID-19 deaths by age, and it’s been mostly missing other than a passing mention by the CDC that “80%” of those who died were over 60.
Until we saw from market-ticker.org that New York City posted death by age and condition data for the city (as of April 2).
And the numbers confirm EVERYTHING the global data has been saying (and perhaps our government and the media have been hiding?). Namely that:
* The VAST MAJORITY of the victims are older (NYC, 70% 65 and over)
* Very few are under 50 (NYC, 5.8% under 45)
* Almost NO teenagers or children (NYC, one death under 18, or .07%)
* Only a fraction have NO OTHER HEALTH CONDITIONS (1.29%)
So, if this data is totally accurate, then maybe, perhaps, we ought to consider allowing the young and healthy out of quarantine — that’s exactly what this is, have no doubts about that — and let them get back to working and providing for their families since this illness doesn’t pose as much of a risk to them as it does the elderly and immunocompromised?
Then again, it’s critical to consider the possibilities of accidentally transmitting the disease to those individiuals by causing so many others to be exposed to it. We have to really be careful about the actions we take here. We do not want to cause more death and destruction and end up having to go back into a crisis mode like this again.
But we also must consider the devastating effects this has on the economy. The economy isn’t about money, it’s about each and every human being in this country. We are the economy. It affects our everyday lives in dramatic ways that cannot be ignored. There has to be a middle road we can take that considers both sides of this issue and provides a practical solution.
What that is, at this point, is anyone’s guess.
