And one in every 65 Americans has tested positive for coronavirus

Quote Tweet: Steven Dennis @StevenTDennis

1 out of every 2,000 Americans alive at the start of the pandemic has now died with COVID.

10:07 PM · Aug 9, 2020


Meanwhile, as we reported almost 54,000 new cases on August 8th.....

In China new locally transmitted cases fell to just 14 in the past 24 hours, the National Health Commission reported on Monday. The low figure was offset, however, by 35 cases brought into the country by Chinese travellers from overseas arriving in seven different cities and provinces across the country. All the cases of local transmission were in the northwestern region of Xinjiang, whose main city Urumqi is the centre of China’s latest outbreak. There are now 29 countries with higher cases than China, which has 88,793 confirmed infections and fewer than 5,000 deaths.

and.....

New Zealand has reported its 101st day in a row with no recorded community transmission of Covid-19 from an unknown source. All 21 active cases of the coronavirus have been diagnosed in travellers returning to New Zealand from other countries; all of them are in quarantine at the government’s managed isolation facilities. There were no new cases of the coronavirus recorded in the quarantine hotels on Monday.

1. The World Odometer site

says 165,617 Americans have died. It also says there are 331,214,010 people in this country. I wonder why there are those relatively small differences.

6. Worldometers is always different from everybody else's numbers.

I used to think it was the GMT that they use for the start of each new date but that isn't it. It usually balances out somehow though.

10. I haven't tracked this but my take is that John Hopkins is 2 days behind

World Odometer. JH also uses slightly different hours.

2. ..



And, New Zealand that had Lockdown immediately after learning about COVID hasn't had a new case in 100 days.

But they have a real leader, Jacinda Ardern

5. Wordometers has our death rate at 500 deaths/1 million pop.

We reported 989 deaths on Saturday. Europe, with a population of 741 million, reported 331, with 56% of those deaths coming from Russia and the UK.

If you had told me back in March that the United States would have a worse death rate than Italy by early September, I would have called you a liar. But that's exactly what's going to happen...and we have the worst president in history to thank for that.

7. Or more like 1 in 13 to 1 in 6.5 Americans have it or have had it ...

one in every 65 Americans has tested positive for coronavirus

And just about everything I read says that experts believe the actual number is 5X to 10X higher than the number testing positive -- if 5X that's 1 in 13. If 10X that's 1 in 6.5 or 2 in 13

8. Considering the rate of spread, you're probably right and.....

no telling how many asymptomatic case there has been, are here now, and will be in the future.

9. And those numbers are just going to continue to get worse. Because we do nothing to stop it.
