Let me make up a new leftist standard for counting bodies. So we use harvesting deaths. That of course is a given. The new standard let’s say will be if a person was not tested but he died and if he lived within 5 miles of somebody who had Canova virus then we’re going to assign that cause of death to cv-19. Their house that?

According to Worldometer, the number of new cases in the United Kingdom in the last few days has either plateaued or dropped, with the only outlier number on April 10 with a rise up to 8681 new cases when the previous day was 4344. It was at 4342 yesterday. New deaths have been on a downward trend since the April 10 to 11th range.

This is reminiscent to the Dems finding boxes of uncounted ballots after the election. They should go back a few months and come up with a few thousand more.

This is the new leftie talking point to counter the fact that the coronavirus death toll is lower than they told us when we shut down the economy.

So far it looks like the weekend effect. We’ll get a better view today. Here’s to hope.

Or rather, it’s more certain than the way we calculate flu deaths.

The Fake News is going to he pushing these bull sh*t stories 24/7 as this hoax winds down. They are not going to let this thing go away quietly! Actually, the Fake News has brothers in arms right here at FR who are not going to let Coronavirus go without a fight!

If the numbers are up it’s the fault of people not staying in doors and the politicians and scientist were right... If the numbers are down it’s because people stayed in doors and the politicians and scientist were right.

Either way, the scientist were right and the politicians were smart to listen to them... The global warming hoax is kind of the same.... If it warms up, they were right, if it doesn’t they were right... The one thing we all know about predictive and soothsaying scientist... They’re always right no matter what the outcome is.

Or 15% lower, as most modelers’ tool of choice appears to be the dart board.

Don't make me re-post the SMBC tutorial!
Bring Out Your Dead

Post to me or FReep mail to be on/off the Bring Out Your Dead ping list.

The purpose of the “Bring Out Your Dead” ping list (formerly the “Ebola” ping list) is very early warning of emerging pandemics, as such it has a high false positive rate.

The false positive rate was 100%.

At some point we may well have a high mortality pandemic, and likely as not the “Bring Out Your Dead” threads will miss the beginning entirely.

*sigh* Such is life, and death...

If a quarantine saves just one child's or one old fart’s life, it's worth it.

That can’t possibly be. Bill Bennett would have said so!
