Last survivability numbers I've seen are about 99.7%. Of course, there are folks who survive, but still have ongoing effects. I don't know what the rate for that is. Vast majority survive with no ongoing effects, but it stinks to be unlucky enough to have it bad.

99.7% of those who got a + test. No telling how many had it and were never tested.

Rangers wonít win a 65 games this year. By June there wonít be 10000. People at a game should be plenty of social distancing then.

How can any of these so called "statisticians, doctors, or scientists" know any rates? The denominator in any of these rates is number of people infected. They have absolutely no idea what that number is. The collective hystericals have even stated the majority of cases are/were probably asymptomatic.

If they are saying high 99 percentile and then add in all the people never reported as having it and you are so close to 100 percent survival rate its not even funny.

I was there and 95% of the time i was mask-less. People are just tired of being told not to do anything and i believe this will start to happen more and more often. If you don't like it or agree with it, then stay home.

There are no actually scientific, prospective, randomized studies demonstrating that masks prevent the spread. The only scientific studies that I have seen show that they don't make a difference. Even the CDC's own, large study showed that masks decreased spread by only 1.2%, which was within the margin of error.

Yep. Then breakout the number of people who have pre-existing serious illnesses and I would expect to see a number well above what you have listed. It just easier for big gov to push agendas when you slap a one size fits all on the narrative.

That side of the aisle has been too busy and preoccupied with George's trial the last 2 weeks. I'm sure someone will remind them to sharpen their pencil and get back to business creating cases. There's bound to not be a hospital bed available in all of Tarrant County.

We had 14 guys in my unit go out with covid. Everyone wearing their masks, washing their hands, using hand sanitizer, wiping down surfaces, social distancing. The symptoms everyone had sounded like the flu. The flu is a covid virus. If you test for the flu, it shows up as the flu, not covid. If you test for covid, it doesnt tell you which covid, just covid. Funny how they tested for covid and tested positive. Nobody was tested for the flu.

Hospitals around us are starting to increase COVID admissions. The people that are getting admitted are ones have not been vaccinated. To date, our 3 small hospitals have not had to admit a patient that had been fully vaccinated. Just passing along information

How in the heck are you getting that info? Even "IF" what you are saying is true, No Hospital Administrator would release that information due to HIPPA regulations. Can you post sources for your statements?

Checking the latest posted info for stats. Since the government started tracking COVID cases they show 32 million confirmed cases and 570k deaths. Thatís officially about 1.8%. However thereís bound to be more people who got infected that never got tested so a guesstimate of 1.3% is probably closer. The CDC 2019 flu season stats show 35.5 million flu cases with 32,500 deaths. About .1% death rate. Evidence indicates COVID-19 is way more deadly and definitely more contagious. Comparing it to the flu is a bit cavalier of some of you.

Reading some of the posts in the thread and others Iíve noticed some of our members making comments like, ďIíll take my chances as Covid-19 is like the flu and most people get over itĒ. My answer to that is it sure sucks to be in that unlucky 1%. Itís easy to be cavalier until you actually contract it and realize what an *** kicker this bug really is. And god forbid you have to sit there and watch helplessly as your wife or your child spiral downward fighting to breathe and end up suffocating to death.

We all need to be good citizens and be thankful we live in the good ole USA. Some of you are hesitant to get a vaccine that could save your life and I would urge you to read about whatís happening in India right now. They are blowing up with COVID. They are desperate for treatment options and oxygen to keep people alive. Theyíre health system has collapsed and they are stacking bodies like wood. They would give anything to get a vaccine and here in the USA roughly 40% of Republican affiliated citizens arenít going to get vaccinated. One thing I noticed last year was how close OUR healthcare system came to failing in certain parts of the country. Donít be fooled into thinking that canít happen to us. Our hospital systems have suffered under-investment for decades and the staff and people in them have been working non-stop to care for as many people as possible since this whole thing started. If we see another surge nationwide we may find that these key staff will quit from sheer exhaustion. Youíll want the best care possible if you have to go to a hospital and you may not get it.

Stay safe everyone and God bless.

Fauci is no Nostradamus! Most of the things he predicts never happen or at least not to the extent he predicted and no one in the media every goes back and says, "Dr. Fauci, you predicted X based on the science yet is never came to pass. Can you tell us how that can happen?"

It doesn't take a Nostradamus to predict that our Texas baseball teams are going to have challenging years and social distancing in the stands won't be difficult to maintain!

If covid was as serious as they want you to believe . There would be no flights in or out of the country. The borders would be air tight etc. Until the government takes it serious the people aren't going to take it serious.
I've been around 15 people at work the day before they took off for covid. I do absolutely nothing different than I did 2 years ago. I've never had covid. I haven't been sick in 10 years.

I'd like to know how many deaths were caused by people not being able to get surgery. Or people killing themselves because they couldn't provide for their family. People who couldn't go get diagnosed with cancer etc because Dr weren't treating patients.

Reading some of the posts in the thread and others Iíve noticed some of our members making comments like, ďIíll take my chances as Covid-19 is like the flu and most people get over itĒ. My answer to that is it sure sucks to be in that unlucky 1%. Itís easy to be cavalier until you actually contract it and realize what an *** kicker this bug really is. And god forbid you have to sit there and watch helplessly as your wife or your child spiral downward fighting to breathe and end up suffocating to death.

We all need to be good citizens and be thankful we live in the good ole USA. Some of you are hesitant to get a vaccine that could save your life and I would urge you to read about whatís happening in India right now. They are blowing up with COVID. They are desperate for treatment options and oxygen to keep people alive. Theyíre health system has collapsed and they are stacking bodies like wood. They would give anything to get a vaccine and here in the USA roughly 40% of Republican affiliated citizens arenít going to get vaccinated. One thing I noticed last year was how close OUR healthcare system came to failing in certain parts of the country. Donít be fooled into thinking that canít happen to us. Our hospital systems have suffered under-investment for decades and the staff and people in them have been working non-stop to care for as many people as possible since this whole thing started. If we see another surge nationwide we may find that these key staff will quit from sheer exhaustion. Youíll want the best care possible if you have to go to a hospital and you may not get it.

Stay safe everyone and God bless.

The FEAR is strong in this one. Did you post all this straight off of CNN's Propaganda only Section?
Funny how you mention India's need for treatment. When in fact there are many proven treatments out there. Or do you not believe that because Cuomo told you it wasnt true?

That’s not accurate at all. The flu is an influenza virus. Covid is a SARS virus.
We just had my daughter at the doc, she has had a raspy voice, sore throat, coughing and fever for 4 or 5 days. She tested neg for both flu & Covid.

Interesting you bring up the current numbers in India. I’m having a difficult time reconciling how a country with 4x the population of the US has less than HALF the number of Covid cases?? Comparatively the US has infinitely better living conditions.

I good friend of mine has recently spent a lot of time south of the border.. He payed close attention to what was happening while he was there.
The "refuges" are not walking from South America or anywhere, they are being flown to the border by the 1,000's, and our tax dollars are buying the tickets... This is all about votes folks... The left is in the process of successfully pulling off another great heist!! Laughing the entire time..

Our hospital systems have suffered from underinvestment for years because we've been paying, free healthcare, for the millions of undocumented immigrants that live here! Just like the thousands that are being shipped here, per day, as we speak! Also millions of people on welfare that our socialist democratic constituency has forced us hardworking tax payers to foot the bill for..... obama care at its finest!!

The homeless population was not affected at all here in the USA.

Another myth they fed us.

US Drop in Vaccine Demand Has Some Places Turning Down Doses
BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS April 23, 2021 Updated: April 23, 2021biggersmaller Print
JACKSON, Miss.—Louisiana has stopped asking the federal government for its full allotment of COVID-19 vaccine. About three-quarters of Kansas counties have turned down new shipments of the vaccine at least once over the past month. And in Mississippi, officials asked the federal government to ship vials in smaller packages so they don’t go to waste.

As the supply of coronavirus vaccine doses in the United States outpaces demand, some places around the country are finding there’s such little interest in the shots, they need to turn down shipments.

“It is kind of stalling. Some people just don’t want it,” said Stacey Hileman, a nurse with the health department in rural Kansas’ Decatur County, where less than a third of the county’s 2,900 residents have received at least one vaccine dose.

The dwindling demand for vaccines illustrates the challenge that the United States faces in trying to conquer the pandemic while at the same time dealing with the optics of tens of thousands of doses sitting on shelves when countries like India and Brazil are in the midst of full-blown medical emergencies.

More than half of American adults have received at least one vaccine dose, and President Joe Biden this week celebrated eclipsing 200 million doses administered in his first 100 days in office. He also acknowledged entering a new phase to bolster outreach and overcome hesitancy.

Across the country, pharmacists and public health officials are seeing the demand wane and supplies build up. About half of Iowa’s counties have stopped asking for new doses from the state, and Louisiana didn’t seek shipment of some vaccine doses over the past week.

In Mississippi, small-town pharmacist Robin Jackson has been practically begging anyone in the community to show up and get shots after she received her first shipment of vaccine earlier this month and demand was weak, despite placing yard signs outside her storefront celebrating the shipment’s arrival. She was wasting more vaccine than she was giving out and started coaxing family members into the pharmacy for shots.

“Nobody was coming,” she said. “And I mean no one.”

In Barber County, Kansas, which has turned down vaccine doses from the state for two of the past four weeks, Danielle Farr said she has no plans to be vaccinated. The 32-year-old said she got COVID-19 last year, along with her 5- and 12-year-old sons and her husband.

Blood tests detected antibodies for the virus in all four of them, so she figures they’re already protected.

“I believe in vaccines that have eradicated terrible diseases for the past 60, 70 years. I totally and fully believe in that,” said Farr, who works at an accounting firm. “Now a vaccine that was rushed in six, seven months, I’m just going to be a little bit more cautious about what I choose to put into my body.”

Barbara Gennaro, a stay-at-home mother of two small children in Yazoo City, Mississippi, said everybody in her homeschooling community is against getting the vaccine. Gennaro said she generally avoids vaccinations for her family in general, and the coronavirus vaccine is no different.

“All of the strong Christians that I associate with are against it,” she said. “Fear is what drives people to get the vaccine—plain and simple. The stronger someone’s trust is in the Lord, the least likely they are to want the vaccine or feel that it’s necessary.”

Another challenge for vaccinations in a rural state like Mississippi is that in many cases, doses are being shipped in large packages with one vial containing at least 10 doses.

During a news conference in early April, Republican Gov. Tate Reeves said Mississippi officials have requested that the federal government send the vaccines in smaller packaging so it’s not going to waste.

“If you’re in New York City, and you’re sending a package to one of the large pharmacies in downtown Manhattan, there are literally millions and millions of people within walking distance most likely of that particular pharmacy,” Reeves said. “Well, if you’re in rural Itta Bena, Mississippi, that’s just not the case.”

To combat the hesitancy, Louisiana continues to increase its outreach work with community organizations and faith-based leaders, set up a hotline to help people schedule appointments, and work to find free transportation to a vaccination center. The health department is sending out more than 100,000 mailers on Monday to encourage people to get vaccinated, and robocalls from regional medical directors are going out to landline phones around the state.

In New Mexico, state officials are exploring the recruitment of “community champions”—trusted residents of regions with vaccine hesitancy who can address concerns about safety and efficacy. Question-and-answer style town halls are also a possibility. And video testimonials about coronavirus vaccines already have been recorded.

Nirav Shah, director of the Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention and the president of the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials, said now that everyone qualifies to get vaccinated, public health officials are encountering three groups: “not able,” “not now” and “not ever.”

The first group, he said, isn’t able to get their shots because they don’t have time. The “not nows” have earnest questions about vaccine safety, efficacy and whether they need the shot.

He said they’re not prepared to write off “not evers,” but instead are “working to find trusted messengers like doctors, family members, community members” to give them good information.

In Corinth, Mississippi, pharmacist Austin Bullard said a lot of people were waiting to become vaccinated until a one-dose shot became available. The news about the Johnson & Johnson vaccine and the risk for blood-clotting—however slim—has scared people about getting any type of vaccination.

“I do feel like there has been more hesitancy across the board since then,”

My childs school eliminated mandatory mask this week. Great to see all those smiling faces. I also think Comal ISD lifted theirs several weeks ago. With less than <10 cases, it makes sense to go back to normal.
