Report just in!
“A study by the Comparative Health Outcomes, Policy and Economics Institute at the University of Washington’s School of Pharmacy, found that 1.3 percent of those who show symptoms of COVID-19 die.
This infection rate is 13 times higher than a bad influenza season.” “This debate can be laid to rest.” according to Anirban Basu, a health economist at the University of Washington.
So yes Roger Rabbit, COVID-19 is deadlier than the flu.
Current reports seem to be indicating that open the country for normal activities can be comparatively safe.
This new study indicates that is a false comfort. As distancing restrictions are let down, the virus could claim between 350,000 and 1.2 million lives — by the end of the year!
Do not let your guard, er, facemask down.
Continue safe distancing.
Be aware of new coughs, chills, and other flu-like symptoms.
Thanks for stopping.
