    If they didn’t already have cancer would they have died from coronavirus?

    It says right there in the link that only 12% have a direct casualty to Covid.

    Yeah who knows man it’s definitely strange. Maybe part of the 5 steps that Pats Reign pointed out.

    So the number of death the models predict have declined by 25% since yesterday. They have declined by 97% since last week's 2,000,000 prediction, perhaps by the end of the week it will decline to 30K.

    There are many “opinion shows” on the news networks and Tucker Carlson is one of them

    No one should confuse opinion with news

    So you would agree that the containment was necessary and effective?

    Laugh all you want, but NewsGuard gives them a green check. Take it up with NewsGuard.

    Nope. I'm not leaving my house except for groceries. I have my Mom's health to consider.

    Sigh...I obviously get what you're saying. The fact we're even discussing it this way is the weird thing to me, which is I guess my issue.

    This is how WHO recommends classifying deaths during pandemic, The approach is intentionally conservative, because if an error is to be made it is preferred over reporting versus underreporting is the error to be made.

    The argument has also been made that CV19 deaths are actually being underreported (in spite of the conservative approach). For example patient deaths at home in untested deceased patients

    Official Counts Understate the U.S. Coronavirus Death TollThe New York Times·2 days ago

    In infectious outbreaks, public health experts say that under typical circumstances it takes months or years to compile data that is as accurate as possible on deaths. The reporting system during an epidemic of this scale is particularly strained. And while experts say they believe that virus-related deaths have been missed, the extent of the problem is not clear.

    Opinion isn't, or shouldn't be, a license to disseminate disinformation on a national tv network.

    The intention is to keep us all endlessly bickering at each other. Why would they stop that?

    CNN is fake news, MSNBC is conspiracy central, and Fox News is controlled opposition. If you think of these 3 all working together, with purpose, to keep the people divided...It will start making sense.

    I truly don’t know and I doubt I could even find an answer in an article. Flu deaths aren’t a hot topic so that would probably take some serious digging.

    I didn't say you were. I just meant the context of this entire discussion so far today is just strange. Although it's not just today, it's been for a while and as we've seen, even on a national level. I just don't get it.

    Got it. So evidence to the contrary of your firmly held beliefs are of no use.

    Carry on
