Is COVID Obsolete? June 29, 2022

*** Going to the CDC website so you don’t have to. ***

I was reading about the FDA’s recommendation that drug manufacturers retool their vaccines for the Omicron variants of COVID-19 (seems a little late for that). Thought I’d check how deaths are doing to see what the current threat level is.

Turns out it’s imperceptible (chart screencapped from the CDC):

For the week ending June 25, here are the deaths per 100,000 people in each age group:

AgeDeaths per 100,000 People
0-40.0
5-110.0
12-150.0
16-170.0
18-290.01
30-390.0
40-490.04
50-640.06
65-740.09
75+0.23

That means that if you were in a group of 10 million people between the ages of 40 and 49, only 4 would die of COVID. So, not terribly concerning.

No more DC cocktail parties for CDC and FDA management.

Interesting that the greatest news ever for the ‘Ronaphobes isn’t being touted as a POTatTUs success story.
