    PS - this same woman claimed Howie Mandel was kidnapped in order to get those sweet, sweet YouTube clicks. Perhaps she should return to smoothies for horny people.

    I am sure Trump wanted to beat Putin to this punch. Well, I am not sure Trump would have used his own daughter though, a niece maybe, but not a daughter.

    I realize political agendas distort number of deaths attributed to CV and are manipulated over/under in reporting, but it is about the only thing we have for comparative purposes.

    Reported: US has 500 deaths per million rate.

    Wouldn't dividing the 500 deaths by 1 million give you the % of deaths for 1 million of the population of the US (0.0005)?
    Then, that number (.0005) would be applicable for all 331 million population for the US?

    This is the table that I used online:
    Decimal to percent Conversion
    Enter decimal number: 0.0005
    Convert
    Percent result: .05% (This would be 5 hundreths of 1%)

    This seems way too low.
    Not a math person, but I don't know what I'm doing wrong.
    A friend was telling me the death rate of CV in the US was less than 1% but this is way beyond "less than 1%."

    Reported deaths by each country due to CV:
    https://www.statista.com/statistics/...n-inhabitants/


    I was also looking at death rates per states in the US (link below).
    He lives in a state incredibly low & he gives me grief b/c I wear a mask when around others.
    IN has 45 deaths so far, much lower than some other states.
    Most surrounding states are a little higher than IN.

    I told him Indy was the 13 largest city in the US so my experience/attitude is different, plus my wife is high risk & I can't be bringing home something from an asymptomatic person.
    He knows of noone who has had CV, but in my different circles I do, although fortunately, like I've read on INGO, it has been mild, not unlike other viruses.

    Deaths by each state in US due to CV:

    Deaths "per population" will be more useful when the epidemic is over or some similar parameter: like we go back to close contact and large events and most of us have potentially been exposed.

    Using it now is like giving 1 out of 20 people a new vehicle to drive and declaring the safety rate of that vehicle based on EVERYONE's accident rate.

    Comparing between countries on a "per population" basis might be useful if they got hit the same time, have similar cultures etc. Otherwise they might just be at a different place on the curve.

    .
    Too funny! The analogy is a fail in my book for your point. It does work perfectly for my point, testing only the sick, those that fear they are sick, and others with the motivation to get tested "is like giving 1 out of 20 people a new vehicle to drive and declaring the safety rate of that vehicle based on EVERYONE's accident rate."

    I see no reason to test a non-critical person with symptoms. been saying this for five months.

    We donít have a very good denominator to compare with, and some kind of per capita deaths is about the best we have. It does have the disadvantage of not telling the full story. Comparing each countryís deaths per capita at the same instance doesnít account for timing along the curve. It is useful to track it over time for each country individually though. We can apply statistics to detect potential pending hotspots. And we can normalize the timing to compare the curves for each country.

    About the analogy, the problem with it is that itís not 1 out of 20. Itís 1 out of n, where n is mostly unknown, but proportional with the number of death.deaths.
