    The U.S. death toll from the coronavirus quietly surpassed 200,000 on Tuesday, less than eight months after the first American fatality. The U.S. reached 100,000 deaths in May. Now, some experts estimate the death toll could almost double by year's end. Fatigue for social distancing and the push to get back into offices and schools could fuel new cases – and deaths – in the coming weeks and months. Experts at the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation at the University of Washington predict 378,321 deaths by Jan. 1. Some significant developments: Our travel writer David Oliver checked in at...
  • Levin: LEFTWING NEW YORK TIMES AND KNOW-NOTHING REPORTER DECEIVE THE PUBLIC

    2 HOURS AGO · PUBLIC I get so tired of these sleazy know-nothing "reporters" like the New York Times clown Tiffany Hsu. The CDC data is clear. I did not make it up. It states that 6% of the now over 200,000 of those who died of the coronavirus died just from the virus, while 94% had comorbidities -- that is, 94% had life-threatening underlying issues such as severe heart disease, diabetes, etc. (The list of comorbidities is also provided by the CDC.) Obviously, 200,000 individuals did not die solely or even primarily from the coronavirus, but some subset of...

    State health leaders listed him as the youngest Oregonian to die from COVID-19, but it turns out 26-year-old Matthew Irvin of Yamhill County didn’t have the virus when he died in July. Family members of Irvin told FOX 12 they’ve been fighting for answers since their son died in his home. New testing conducted by the CDC confirmed Irvin did not have the coronavirus when he died, according to his parents. The Oregon State Medical Examiner’s Office said Irvin’s sample sent to the CDC tested negative for COVID-19. The family said back in July, Irvin became very sick and went...

    Elementary school children boarding school bus, Mount Shasta, California Most US schools have been closed since March due to the Wuhan Coronavirus.Democrats want to keep the schools closed. They say its because of coronavirus. But it’s only because of politics. So far this year, via the CDC— since February, there have been 226 deaths of children and young adults under age 24 in the United States caused by coronavirus or possibly linked to coronavirus. The last full flu season from 2018-2019, via the CDC, saw 477 deaths of children and young adults under age 17 in the United States...
  • CBS News: Grim virus death toll projected in Sweden after lax approach

    Swedish health officials said Tuesday that at least another 3,000 deaths from the coronavirus are likely in the country, known for its controversial softer approach to curbing the spread and much higher death toll than its neighbors. The projection comes from one of three potential scenarios presented in a report from the country's Public Health Agency on Tuesday. In the worst scenario, where COVID-19 was expected to follow a traditional pandemic trajectory, over 4,400 more deaths related to the virus could follow. That would nearly double the 5,646 deaths, out of 78,166 confirmed cases, that have been recorded since the...
  • Sweden's Coronavirus death toll is now approaching zero, but experts are warning others not to hail its no lockdown strategy as a success

    By all accounts, Sweden's high rate of coronavirus deaths was evidence that the country had made a horrendous error. Sweden — which did not impose a strict lockdown — suffered 543 deaths per million of its population, compared to just 105 in neighboring Denmark. The Swedish death toll has been roughly 11 times worse than Norway's, on a per capita basis. Yet coronavirus deaths in Sweden have fallen dramatically in recent days, and are now approaching zero. Between June 30 and July 6, Sweden recorded fewer than five deaths per day on all days but one. The decline in newly...

    The daily number of deaths from the coronavirus has risen recently in some of the nation’s most populous states, leaving behind grieving families and signaling a possible end to months of declining death totals nationally. In Texas, officials announced 119 deaths Wednesday, surpassing a daily record for deaths in the pandemic that the state had set only a day earlier. In Arizona, more than 200 deaths have been announced already this week, and the daily virus death toll in the state reached higher than ever. Mississippi, Florida and Tennessee also set single-day death records this week. Among those who died...

    The scare campaign around COVID-19 keeps chugging along, making things look as bad as possible, and probably worse than they really are. The New York Post Reports: New Jersey's coronavirus death toll adds nearly 2,000 probable fatalities New Jersey's coronavirus death toll climbed by nearly 2,000 Thursday — after the state began recording probable fatalities from the bug. The state added 1,854 fatalities that were deemed likely due to COVID-19, but were not confirmed by a test, to its tally New Jersey's coronavirus death toll adds nearly 2,000 probable fatalities This is sort of like claiming that humans, CO2,...

    The architect of Sweden's coronavirus response has defended the country's controversial decision not to go into lockdown, while admitting "improvements" could be made with the benefit of hindsight. As the coronavirus pandemic swept across the world and governments scrambled to enact emergency lockdown measures, Sweden was labeled an outlier for its seemingly relaxed approach that imposed only light restrictions on daily life. Its measures were markedly different from its Nordic neighbors, keeping most schools, restaurants, salons and bars open. It did, however, ask people to refrain from making long journeys, placing an emphasis on personal responsibility. Sweden's Covid-19 death toll...

    Last week I wrote about some indications that Russia’s coronavirus numbers may not be accurate. Specifically, the number of health care workers who’ve died from the virus is far higher as a percentage of total deaths than anywhere else in the world. Today, Russia tried to allay suspicious that it’s numbers aren’t accurate by releasing some additional details about how it calculated deaths last month: The Russian government on Friday presented more detailed mortality figures for last month that include more deaths linked with the coronavirus, in a bid to dispel suspicions from some Russian and Western experts that...

    STOCKHOLM (AP) - Sweden’s government defended its response to the COVID-19 global pandemic on Tuesday despite the Scandinavian country now reporting one of the highest mortality rates in the world with 4,125 fatalities, or about 40 deaths per 100,000 people. “Transmission is slowing down, the treatment of COVID-19 patients in intensive care is decreasing significantly, and the rising death toll curve has been flattened,” Foreign Minister Ann Linde told foreign correspondents at a briefing in Stockholm. “There is no full lockdown of Sweden, but many parts of the Swedish society have shut down.” More than 76,000 people have been made...
  • Focus on the Covid-19 Death Rate: Wise Public Policy Is Being Thwarted By Bad, Perhaps Intentionally Bad, Data

    American Institute of Economic Research ^ | 05/26/2020 | Gregory van Kipnis
    In the saga of the virus and the lockdown, the wisdom of the crowds, that is the wisdom of each of us, was thwarted by bad data, perhaps intentionally bad. On the other hand, the ersatz wisdom of the collective bureaucracy in federal, state and local health agencies was based on crafted data. In the end data didn’t matter, as the bureaucracies were more concerned with their natural territorial imperative, which is to rule and control. The most frightening aspect of the coronavirus-19 (COVID-19) epidemic in the US is that it brought about exaggeratedly heightened fear of death. That fear,...

    Memorial Day stories in the Associated Press and the New York Times each claim that the U.S. death toll from the Wuhan COVID-19 virus is approaching 100,000. AP says it’s “nearly 100,000.” The Times, dramatically invoking language reminiscent of the Iraq War, says that “America is fast approaching a grim milestone … of 100,000 lives lost.” The AP directly cites Johns Hopkins’ COVID Dashboard as its data source. The Times also uses the Dashboard’s data, but rarely acknowledges it. Following these two outlets’ lead, hundreds, if not thousands, of establishment media outlets and leftist platforms act as if the JH...

    New York state saw its coronavirus death toll drop below 100 on Saturday for the first time in months. Governor Andrew Cuomo and health officials announced Saturday that the hardest hit state in the country recorded 84 daily deaths tied to the coronavirus as of May 22, marking the first fall below 100 daily deaths since the pandemic began in March. The governor noted this number is "still a tragedy, no doubt," but said it showed massive improvement from the tens of thousands of total deaths recorded over the last two months. Cuomo also said hospitalizations and new cases are...

Wade Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion on demand, the governors of both New York and Illinois signed laws to extend and promote abortion. As he signed the Reproductive Health Act into law, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo described it as the “evolution” of humankind in America. In Illinois, Gov. J.B.

    Italy’s coronavirus death toll in March and April could be nearly 19,000 higher than the official figure of 32,000, the national social security agency said Thursday. The Istituto Nazionale della Previdenza Sociale (INPS), the largest social security and welfare institute in Italy, said in a new study that the official death figures were not “reliable”, according to AFP. Its study showed that 156,42 total deaths were recorded in Italy in March and April, which is 46,909 higher than the average number of fatalities in those months recorded between 2015 and 2019. But only 27,938 deaths linked to coronavirus were reported...

    Editor's Note: Timothy Craig Allen, MD, JD, contributed to this column.Over 86,500 people have reportedly died in the United States from the Coronavirus, and the fear generated by those deaths is driving the public policy debate. But that number is a dramatic overcount. Our metrics include deaths that have nothing to do with the virus. The problem is even worse as the Centers for Disease Control over counts even some of these cases and the government has created financial incentives for this misreporting. Relying on these flawed numbers is destroying businesses and jobs and costing lives. “The case definition is...

    Washington — One of the leading models for measuring the impact of the coronavirus is now projecting a total of 137,184 cumulative COVID-19 deaths in the U.S. through the beginning of August, an increase of roughly 2,700 deaths from its previous forecast May 4. Christopher Murray, the director of the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) at the University of Washington, predicted the number of cases to particularly increase in areas where people become more mobile. "What's driving the change is, simply put, the rise in mobility, and that's the key driver," Murray said on "Face the Nation" on...

    New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio’s delayed response to the coronavirus pandemic may turn out to be the most consequential failure in the country. Not only does the New York City area skew America’s overall numbers when it comes to coronavirus cases and deaths, but recent genetic studies suggest that New York also served as a hub for the spread of the virus across the United States. New research reported in The New York Times indicates that a wave of infections swept from New York City through much of the United States before the city instituted social distancing requirements...
