Historic Pandemics in Perspective: Coronavirus Is a Blip on the Timeline

The current estimate for the fatality rates on the coronavirus just don’t add up.  The estimates based on current data are completely inaccurate. Current data shows that this virus is much less deadly that even the common flu from the 2019-2020 season.

Details below:

    • The point of the figures in the table RRM is the WHO, when it talked of the COV19 having a death rate of 3-4% and the Flu at 0.1% had it all wrong because were comparing apples and oranges to get their 0.1%.
      More importantly it was based on their figures that the Governments around the world started turning their economies upside down. In short the WHO stuffed up big time.
      Having said that you are correct, we will not know the actual effect until it is over.

      • The W.H.O. is a part of the United Nations

        The United Nations org is not your friend.
        They have been trying to reshape society in recent decades.
        UN is stacked with self loathing YTs.
        UN is behind many toxic campaigns (Agenda 21, UN2030) and Ardern is an adherent to their evil.

        Look at the sort of people who have gone to the UN from NZ . A lot of homosexuals: Chris ‘nasty’ Carter and Charles Chauvel. Not exactly representative. And Klarkenfuhrer.
        The daffy, dozy, thinks he is a do-gooder, ex-school teacher, David Shearer
        The UN is made up of people you would not welcome into your home.

        Are you sure the response is not as planned?

      • As howitis points out about the UN. and so WHO is also astro turfed & stuffed.

        Tedros Adhanom announced that he had chosen President Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe to serve as a WHO Goodwill Ambassador to help tackle non-communicable diseases for Africa.
        He said Zimbabwe was “a country that places universal health coverage and health promotion at the centre of its policies to provide health care to all”.
        ….. Zimbabwe’s healthcare system had in fact gone backwards under his regime, …….
        …… Mugabe himself does not use his own country’s health system, instead travelling to Singapore for treatment.
        Observers said Tedros was returning a campaign favour. Mugabe was chair of the African Union when Tedros was endorsed as a sole African Union candidate in a murky process that didn’t consider qualified alternatives like ……
        …… The editor-in-chief of Lancet, the prominent medical journal called Tedros “Dictator-General”.

        So it would seem he is someones muppet, and like all Marxist Leninist, would seem to take the money & lifestyle.

        So parts of this is all going to plan, moving things along with in a crises.

        “WHO boss suggesting the stigma of Covid-19 is worse than the disease is ‘farcical’: Bolt”

        7 mins 50 secs. best from 3 minutes 20 seconds to 6 minutes
        Tedros is eviserated with the connections and the words he uses.

  1. There are 1.2 million people a year killed in motor vehicle accidents.
    There are many more injured, some permanently injured or underperforming to previously.
    That is more than 3,000 human lives a day lost to MV accidents… day after day.
    Why has this not been a genuine concern given the reaction to COVID?
    The 1991 Gene Hackman movie ‘Class Action’ might help there.

    Malaria kills more than 500,000 a year and those that have it suffer while alive, usually for years and for the rest of their life.

    I think there is an over-reaction to this COVID just as there was an under reaction to the 2018-19 influenza that took out many in OECD countries.
    I am still not sure why NZ escaped that.

    My belief is there is a deliberate crashing of the world economy to be rebuild differently.
    Recovery from 10 weeks lock down will take 3 years to recover for those that make the effort.
    eg Japan never faced its market crash circa 1990 and allowed zombie banks to stumble along like they were in a zombie movie.
    USA took their hit from the Savings and Loan scandal at the same time and moved on.

    There has traditionally been a crash around decade changes. 1989/90;
    On Friday, April 14, 2000, the Nasdaq Composite index fell 9% in the dot com crash
    Sept 2008- the GFC
    Now this and the market was being pumped up significantly in Jan and Feb 2020.
    Ripe for profit taking on turning points.

    A thought:-
    with less activity – little tourism and self drive cars, buses on the road; people confined to barracks etc – will there likely be less MV accidents ?
    Will there be less MV deaths and how much will this be offset by COVID deaths.
    A Good Masters or PhD study!
