90% of Covid-positive individuals are asymptomatic. This is the most significant and meaningful statistic of all.
Asymptomatic Covid-positive have a spread rate of only 0.7% – less than 1%. They are NOT super spreaders.
Survival rate of ages 0-69 is 99.82%. Survival rate of age 70+ is 94.6% with high comorbidities and other causes of death.
Dr. Deborah Birx and state health officials confirmed that all Covid-positive individuals who die from other causes are being counted as a Covid death, including, but not limited to: car accidents, gunshot wounds, 1-week to live in hospice, drowning, dementia, and alcohol poisoning. Most people did not die "FROM" or were "KILLED BY" Covid, they died "WITH IT."
Only 6% of death certificates show Covid-19 as the only cause of death, which includes "assumed cause." On average, there are 2.9 comorbidities to documented Covid deaths. That number increases significantly in nursing homes.
The CDC is grouping pneumonia, influenza, and covid deaths together as "PIC", while discontinuing reporting on influenza hospitalizations because "the number is too low" despite being in the middle of the flu season.
38% of all Covid-related deaths have taken place in nursing homes & long term care facilities, accounting for over 129,000 of deaths reported, in which 43% of those deaths were attributed to influenza and pneumonia, and 31% were age 85+.
