I think we missed a LOT of cases during the initial outbreak. The testing capacity wasn't there and the tests that were there were shite.

Subtract the deaths that aren’t really Covid deaths. Divide by 3.

You’ll end up around 0.5-0.75.

Recall testing favors more serious cases and disfavors asymptomatic and mild cases.

Now that they are testing everyone and everything, the CFR should continue to decline. I remain convinced the actual IFR is going to settle into a 0.4 to 0.6 % range.

No one will care that it is more like a powerful strain of the seasonal influenza than the Spanish Flu, but it is already obvious that it is true. This is why politics and science don't mix.

Cases and deaths are dropping hard even with heavy testing.

Because I think for the 90 year old plus group it's got a much more severe mortality rate of something like 6-10%. It's anchoring the average. We see the news stories talking about college kids, but it's still creeping its way through nursing homes and when it gets there it is still pretty rough.

I think it’s going to settle in lower, actually.

We know way more regarding how to treat this than we did just a few months ago and virus’ generally mutate to be weaker/more contagious as they progress.

I’m seeing a lot more incidental covid positives in elderly than I was before. Lots of >70 that are just confused/sob like a flu rather than knocking on deaths door.

What happened to the positivity rate from 9/14? It wasn’t showing that high yesterday.

That was exactly my question. The testing number went from 700k down to 400k.

I don’t know if comparing a 100 year old flu to today’s Covid-19 is a fair comparison. Public health has come a long way since then.

Covid-19 has resulted in about 920,000 global deaths compared to 150,000-550,000 for H1N1 which is often averaged to 300k. So Covid-19 will end up globally 4-5x more lethal than H1N1.

This isn’t a bad flu season. The US has averaged 38k flu deaths from 2010-2018 per CDC. We are at 199k Covid deaths. Even if we take the highest year of 61k and subtract that, we are still 3x that amount with 3.5 months to go. At our current pace, we will end the year in the 250-275k range for deaths or 4x the highest flu outbreak in the last decade and 6.5x our average year.

I agree; politics and science don’t mix.

Is a nonsensical phrase. There’s no average pace to a virus over the course of months.

It seems weird that you take issue with this phrase. It doesn’t significantly change the other statements made. So what’s the point?

CDC is projecting that 205-217k total deaths will be reported Oct 4. We are at 200k with 19 days to go. We will be in the top end around 212-215k. I suspect football, election, and Thanksgiving are going to result in a very bad December. I also think we will stay in the 750-1k range for daily deaths.

Not terribly consistent in this post.

You do realize we aren’t having 750-1000 deaths/day? Most days, a decent percentage of deaths recorded are from death certificate “matching” from 1-3 months ago.

We had our peak day of deaths months ago. We haven’t got close to it again. We’re in the rural community spread phase of the disease.

The issue appears to be data frickery from Texas. They are now showing -336K tests for yesterday. You won't see it in my state dashboard for texas, as my process zeros out all the big negative numbers to keep it from screwing up the charts.

So what is the deal with the deaths from yesterday? I'm listening to dumbass MSNBC talking about we had 1300 deaths yesterday. But were the deaths from months ago? If so, can somebody gimme a link to something that explains that? I am trying to combat misinformation. TIA.

Very frustrating to listen to these a-holes just go on about things they don't understand.

The 7-day average for deaths increased yesterday and will spike up today due to the Labor Day effects. But there is no cause for alarm. The average should fall again starting on Wednesday and we'll likely reach an average of around 750 deaths per day by the weekend.
