What’s America’s actual COVID death rate?
The coronavirus pandemic may have caused tens of thousands of more deaths in the spring and summer than previously thought, a new study says.
Researchers at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond found nearly 75,000 more people may have died from the pandemic than what was recorded in March to July, according to the report published Monday in the peer-reviewed journal JAMA.
By examining death certificates, the study found more than 150,000 deaths were officially attributed to COVID-19 during that period. But researchers determined that nearly 75,000 additional deaths were indirectly caused by the pandemic, bringing the total number of deaths for those four months to more than 225,000.
These are the seasons of emotion and like the winds they rise and fall.
Our AC unit just developed a leak in its condenser coil. That’s an expensive replacement. But, because of COVID, HVAC parts are in short supply. Supplier says they don’t know when the backorders will be through.
So we have to put a bunch of money into a bunch of refrigerant that’s going to just leak out into the atmosphere. Seriously, this shit is expensive – we put $800 worth into it, three weeks ago. And it’s gone.
Hurry up, fall.
Kevin is puzzled.
So what’s the problem? We know that the vast majority of Republicans don’t really care about the budget deficit, so it can’t be that. Relieving the financial stress on millions of voters would surely be good for Donald Trump, so partisan politics can’t be the answer. Everyone in Congress represents a state that desperately needs help, so it can’t be a geographic thing.
And yet Republicans refuse to support a serious stimulus/rescue plan. I really, truly don’t understand. Is it just habit? Automatic opposition to anything Democrats like? What on earth is the problem?
They’re going to use Dems’ refusal to vote for the stimulus bill in campaign ads.
They’re not going to say “Senator Foo wouldn’t vote for COVID19 stimulus relief because he thought it was too skimpy.” They’re just going to say the first part.
Van Morrison thinks social distancing is a hoax.
First day of school in Paulding County, GA.
It’s like they looked at their recent summer camp outbreak and said “Hold My Beer!”
A lot of people are about to learn a hard lesson.
