(Tea Party 247) – The mainstream media has been clear in their perception of the coronavirus pandemic.
The sky is falling, the apocalypse is upon us, millions of dead bodies will soon line the streets, and oh yeah, we’re all gonna die.
And it’s probably Trump’s fault, too.
They’ve poo-pooed the drug hydroxychloroquine, which has been recommended by a survey of 6,000 doctors as the “most effective therapy” for the disease.
Meanwhile, the numbers are showing a very different story. Yes, the coronavirus has proven to be hyper-contagious, difficult to control, and potentially deadly.
But just how deadly is it compared to all the “normal” things which take the lives of Americans each and every year?
The Gateway Pundit reveals that:
The Worldometer coronavirus website says there have been 7,896 coronavirus deaths in the US as of noon on Saturday April 4, 2020.
The CDC website has only 1,150 US deaths listed as confirmed or presumed to be linked to the coronavirus.
Yikes, this is a very different picture than the one being painted by the mainstream media.
According to the collected data, TGP breaks down:
** 79% (910/150) are over the age of 65
** 90% (1033/1150) are over the age of 55
** 3.5% are under 45
** 0.7 (9/1150) are under 35
As has been consistently reported, the vast majority of coronavirus deaths are in people over the age of 65, nearly 80% in fact.
In the United States, there is an average of 7,838 deaths every day, meaning 446,778 for a period of 57 days, which is roughly the time in which the coronavirus has post a serious threat.
The total deaths this year is even lower than the deaths in the same time last year.
What is really going on?
