The CDC says that 23,000 Americans have died from the flu since last September. Yawn. Ho hum.
Around 6 PM today the TV news cited another CDC statistic that 400 Americans have died from the coronavirus. Emergency! Suspend the Constitution — Permanently! Declare Martial Law! Stop the economy — Now!! Stay in the house — or else! Shut up and take your Masters’ orders! Rev up the printing presses! Call out the National Guard! Imprison all dissenters!!
Here’s another interesting tidbit: The Italian version of the CDC says that just under 50% of those who had “died from the coronavirus” had at least three pre-existing diseases such as cancer, heart disease, lung disease, etc. The average age of such Italian disease victims is 80.5. Around 25% had at least two such diseases. Nevertheless, they are claiming that they died from coronavirus alone. 0.8% of Italians who died from the coronavirus had no pre-existing serious diseases.8:11 pm on March 22, 2020
