Wow Chris - a 2% infection mortality rate with a super-infectious virus - it's like what, the Napoleonic wars cholera or something? |
I think you're confusing case mortality with infection mortality as is ubiquitous in the scare-mongering, divisive, tyranny-pushing media. Infection is anyone with a positive test, ill or not. If you have an infection you're probably not ill at all. Though you might be. Cases: that's sick people who need hospitalization or intensive nursing.
But thanks for the sitrep, I know you know a lot about your patch a lot more than me. Another thing to say: treating anyone with a viral infection - a positive test alone - with "anti-virals" is very dangerous and likely to push up mortality. Anti-virals are strong drugs, at once confounding natural humoral immunity while killing a virus where they can get it; but then allowing its spread where they can't. That's a worst case and one lesson of the appalling treatment of suspected viral meningitis cases here in the UK which is all defensive medicine - defensive of the medics that is.
For me like I said, it's not really about this disease with about 0.1% infection rate mortality... well it's not the main thing. Pushing dystopian tyranny is.
