Re: 2020 was the Deadliest Year in U.S. History

@Mom2Dogs Correct...there is no relief in that bill.  about 9% (if that) of the 1.9T is for Covid 19 help.  The rest has nothing to do with that.  It is laughable.

It's going to be a long and bumpy ride for a while.

Yes, China hurt us badly.  And yet, we aren't allowed even to say so, let alone prepare to stop them.

What kind of thrill is it posting things that have no sourcing to create dissention amongst ladies who are otherwise friends.  


 

The data is widely available from numerous sources. The ones I used in writing the post were The NY Post, USA Today, WebMD and AP.

 

My post was intended to take a pause and acknowledge the horrendous loss.

 

I also acknowledged the benefits of vaccination!

 

Hope you have a better day!

@Isobel Archer The sanctions on China imposed by the other guy are still in place. There are proposals in Congress to deal with intellectual theft, electronic interference and sanctions for atrocities toward ethnic minorities. Sounds to me like many people are talking about it.

As with any statistics, it is all how you look at them.  Raw numbers without perspective and used for random comparison are decieving. Actually if you look at deaths as a percentage of the total population there have been many years that are much " deadlier".


 

@CrazyDaisy If you have different data or context, you can post that.

The CDC has age-adjusted data back to 1900, showing the annual rate of change.

 

The 2020 data will not final for several months.

 

The blip for 2019 dwarfs WWII.  So yes, that is the rate to judge by.

 

All projections seem to show we will not get that high, but 2020 should be in second place.

Re: 2020 was the Deadliest Year in U.S. History

 This quote from the Associated Press that you posted   says covid 19 deaths  accounted for the increase in  the US mortality rate . Well, prior to the pandemic we were hearing of how many people die each day from overdose from substance abuse and suicide.  There are other sources that have questioned the inconsistencies in documenting covid 19 deaths . Alex Berensen who was a former NY Times reporter wrote several pamphlets abt covid 19 issues . Part 1 focused on the ways governments count and report Covid-19 deaths.

 

Looking at all  causes of  death in the last year is important in saving future lives . I would hope that the powers that be get back to seriously addressing these issues by providing more treatment centers , support groups and research into more effective

treatment modalities .
