tragic stat regarding CV19 deathrate in Orleans Parish
quote:

Orleans Parish has the highest per-capita death rate for the coronavirus among all American counties to date, a new analysis by The Times-Picayune | The Advocate shows.

More disturbingly, perhaps, it’s not even a close call. The county with the No. 2 rate — Richmond County, N.Y., better known as Staten Island — has a rate half that of New Orleans.

quote:


Jefferson Parish, meanwhile, had the sixth-highest per-capita death rate among American counties.

By Thursday, 46 New Orleanians had died from the virus, or a little more than 1 out of every 10,000 city residents. In Jefferson Parish, which has recorded 12 deaths, the rate was about 1 for every 36,000 residents.

Viewed another way, New Orleans has recorded more deaths than Manhattan — generally seen as America’s epicenter of the pandemic — with a population less than a quarter as large.


holy crap

New Orleans has its own problems.

But this is a result of Marci Gras. And Jefferson is a result of being one parish away.

It's more likely that the virus arrived in Nola earlier plus mardi gras, plus the general poor health/morbidity of the region.

Every time a calamity occurs, be it Katrina or Corona or whatever, what gets laid bare is the tragedy of people who are wholly dependent upon the government for their survival and how that reality is deadly for those people.

Sad to say, but to be expected with how unhealthy New Orleans is as a whole. Tons of overweight and pre-existing conditions.

It’s basically the Italy of the US

90% of New Orleans makes no money from their own work and depends entirely on the government.

It has one of the highest obesity rates in the Union.

Obesity is becoming a linking factor apart from old age.

Obesity creates tremendous strain on the lungs and heart for years.

Not saying there aren’t... But other cities didn’t have Marci Gras to ensure the spread. The deaths are a result of the obesity and general shitty health of a majority of people down there.

I disagree completely.

I think dependence on government for healthcare results in similar outcomes.
