Good perspective on the politics of Covid

Interesting read and perspective from Mark Oshinskie on the lockdowns being political can be found here.

Think about the following quote from the article as we continue to get misled on the Covid death toll. We always hear about the high number of deaths — now over 500k — but never that 94% of those who died had on average 2.6 comorbidities. That is a significant fact to leave out! And calls into question not only the accuracy of the death toll but the reason for misleading us.

He says this even though 99.6% of those infected, survive. Of those who die with ā€” not from ā€” an infection, 94% have an average of 2.6 comorbidities. 80% of deaths with Coronavirus deaths occur in people over 65. Nearly half of those are nursing home residents, half of whom normally die within five months of admission. Even 95% of those over 85 survive infection. Average age of US death, from any cause: 79 years. Average age of Coronavirus death: 80 years.
