I hate to think what this graph will look like 2-4 weeks from now...especially if the second outbreak in China with a mutated, worse version is indicative.

FYI, that we have the most cases because of " stellar testing" is another lie.

We are 13th in the world in testing per capita.

That death rates would go down is expected since the public seeks treatment sooner and can get tested sooner. At least, until we are overwhelmed with cases again.

11967 infected = 0.004% of State Population.
570 dead = 0.047% of Infected Population
570 dead = 0.0002% of State Population.
We are getting closer to the apocalypse day by day.

Crawl back into your paper bag @11:56 AM. You'll be safer there, at least until the anarchy breaks out. Sure hope you made a point of purchasing ammunition.

Let's hope the high rollers aren't in the current 51% not in nursing homes of the .02 deaths in that percentage.

33% of the casino market is over age 65 and 23% is age 50-64.

Killing your best customers is not a great long term strategy. But, carry on...

12:11 - 4.7% of the infected have died. not 0.047%. big difference. Thats a huge mortality rate. We're 8 weeks in and this isn't going anywhere.

I'm not approving two comments. One is about state data and is dead wrong, as I will show probably tomorrow, if not tonight, and the other cites the US as leading deaths and cases of the virus. Not approving any comment that says so for one simple reason: China. It's a known fact that China lied. Comments that repeat Red propaganda will not be approved.

570 dead out of 11967. 570/11967=0.047%. Show your math please.

IMINT showed heat signatures from the crematories near Wuhan at the height of the breakout, and close to 20,000,000 cell phone users (which is required in China) that simply disappeared. There is no way the numbers from China are even close to accurate, even by a factor of 50.

570 dead out of 11967. 570/11967=0.047=4.7%

Basic math skills bruh.

and no, we do not know the total number of infected. nor do we know how many of the currently known infected will survive. the point is this virus is far more contagious and lethal than the flu. its a terrible comparison.

Calm Down said...

@2:56
The regular flu is the exact comparison. Also another type of coronavirus. Estimates of the regular flu from the CDC put the number of deaths at 23,000 (2015-16) to 61,000 (2017-18).

if you trust the current reports of wuflu at 92,000, it makes for a valid comparison.

Anonymous said...

@2:56p- Realistically, the number of infected is WAY higher (mild to no symptom cases that were never tested), therefore, the TRUE percentage is much, much lower than 4.7%. (This doesn't even account for inaccurate death declarations.) If I were you, I'd hold off on comparisons to the flu until it all comes out in the wash.

Any comparison to historical data shows that NYC is the ONLY area truly affected by this outbreak where deaths are concerned. Most everywhere else is essentially experiencing normal death rates.

@12:11, which of this state’s fine schools can take credit for your knowledge of basic math?

Have to agree that this is not the end times and that we will do ok. Those that die will die of this or something else. Cannot run from death nor put it off. Cannot be dealt or bargained with. All need to take a deep breath and relax. Yes, I have lost loved ones. Not to Covid but to other malady's, accidents and even murder. No fun, but we all press on. Take care all.

Anonymous said...

@3:12 The influenza virus is not a coronavirus. Comparisons between the two are totally misleading. While we don't know the exact mortality rate yet, the best estimates are 0.5%-0.75% which is several times higher than even a bad flu strain. That is compounded by the complete lack of any immunity to the coronavirus. The flu infects an estimated 30 million people and you have a vaccine that prevents or minimizes the effects of getting it. COVID would be expected to infect over 150 million people in a year without mitigation.

The end result is an uncontrolled COVID epidemic would kill a million American citizens over the course of a year. Despite the extreme measures we have taken so far we are already 10% there in two months. Look for deaths to approach 250,000 by the end of December.

Some of you need to google "the paradox of preparation" and enlighten yourselves. Because obviously it has never occurred to you that part of the reason the virus did not spread to more people is precisely because we implemented social distancing and stayed at home. That may be too logical for some of the smaller brains to comprehend.

Wednesday Numbers. 413k Tests. 22k Positive.

Your 0.047 is the decimal form. To convert to % you must multiply by 100%. My kids learned this in 3rd to 5th grade.

The following might help:

@2:11 Not going to call BS on the CDC, but what that article does state is the primary method of transmission is person-to-person which makes it even more important that everyone take precautions when out in the public. Maintain 6 feet of distance, don't stop and chat with other people in stores, and for goodness sake wear a mask to reduce the range where an infected person can pass the virus on to an innocent victim.

Ordered takeout from the new restaurant in town, really good food, gave em 20% like I always do, just wished I could have gotten an adult take out drink. I am supporting em any I can. But this shit is not over, I am staying in.

I stand corrected on my numbers. Failed to complete the equation. I appreciate the help and will not forget the help from the many understanding experts I received on this blog. Bless you all, just wish I was perfect as you all are. I will endeavor to be so in the future.

Anonymous said...

@4:12p- The irony of your own misunderstanding is blinding. There were not many people who actually “LOCKED” down. Many continued to work, more continued to occupy stores, people continued to visit, etc. Given that people are still testing positive, the virus didn’t “stop spreading.”

Now we will ALL earn the prize of greater risk with lowered immunities. I’m grateful doctors continue to speak up, including the hundreds who sent a letter to the President today.

Anonymous said...

People must stop saying social distancing worked. It appears to work because this thing is a minor thing that is not something to worry about.

China probably did lie but do their official numbers match closely to the ones we view as fact? It seems almost no one here is affected.

Anonymous said...

@8:01 Almost 100,000 American citizens who have already died dispute your "minor thing" statement. We're off the peak caused by the massive outbreaks in New York and New Orleans, but it isn't slowing down any more. We'll be at a quarter million or more dead by the end of the year. Social distancing worked despite a few selfish individuals best attempts to keep the spread going as fast as possible. You don't see situations like New York City and New Orleans now simply because the mitigation efforts did some good.

Anonymous said...

@11:56 We are reporting total cases- not cases per capita. Therefore, being 13th in testing per capita is irrelevant. How many TOTAL tests (absolute total number) have we conducted versus countries 1 through 12 in per capita testing.

@4:12 Prove social distancing was effective. Let's see your study with the control arm.

Anonymous said...

@711 he didn't say the virus STOPPED SPREADING, he said it didn't spread to more people. And NO ONE is going to do a study to confirm social distancing worked. That's a stupid rebuttal.

The doctors who wrote to the president are ass clowns who were recruited to do so. The majority of doctors were in support of social distancing and locking things down for a bit, especially the infectious disease docs and epidemiologist.

Anonymous said...

100s of doctors, it was 27 doctors recruited by his campaign.
Not one is an expert on airborne infection.

Green Acres said...

@4:51 - I'm with you. We are ordering take-out food at least once a week, grocery shopping every other week, wearing our masks, and social distancing. We also are ignoring the political crap from Washington DC, the idiots who keep comparing C-19 to the flu, common colds, etc., who deny that social distancing has slowed down the rate of infection, and who are obsessed with disputing the mortality and morbidity rates from CDC and the state department of health.

If we all stay the course, respect others' right to be protected from us in case we are contagious, and CALM DOWN, then we will get through this with as little damage as possible.

Speaking of restaurants, why in hell do those who opened back up have what they're calling 'temporary menus' with most of their best items not included?

Here's an example: Georgia Blue touts their safety protocol on radio all day long but they serve no steaks and not even fried green tomatoes. If I wanted grits I could have stayed at home. Robert St. Johns' business in Hattiesburg is doing the same thing.

People are anxious to dine-in (under the new regulations) but nobody eats out in order to enjoy something off the Sysco truck.

I don't give one whit about 'The Paradox Of Preparation-H'. I'm here to learn math.

Anonymous said...

9:30 pm Yes we are reporting total cases. Per capita cases are counted in every country using the same per capita to account for population differences. This is not hard. It's one more math step.

And, I'm not 4:12 but again it's the comparative statistics in affected countries. I would point to us, Brazil and Sweden as countries where social distancing was ignored. In this country, you have to look State by State and county by county but that's true in other countries as well.

So divide 1,581,903 cases of confirmed coronavirus into our current population of 332,865,306. So that's 1 of every 210 Americans. That's pretty close to 5% of us. Now, when you consider that's out of only 3.6 million total tests as of last Friday. Contrast that with the test rate in other countries ,and note their populations.

Now, as to your other misunderstanding of facts:

New Zealand is your proof that rigidly following all the protocols for epidemics works. That's less mentally challenging for you that doing all the math for other countries who sheltered with far better cooperation of their citizens. But, the results are the same. The thing is, you have to have a population smart enough to do it and/or leaders who understand why it works and explain it .

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).


Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.


In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.

If you get tired come relax at the Fox News Tent. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag.
