Are conservatives really bad at math?

"White House defends Trump's claim that 99 percent of COVID-19 cases are 'harmless' with chart showing 5 percent are fatal"

    You have to understand concepts.  The "chicken little" media and democrat hype about cases reaching stratospheric/epic proportions resulted in 222 deaths nation wide.  There were more OD's than that in St. Louis.

    yes we are.  We really and truly believe that more war and more debt is good for the economy.

    Republicans are people who think they want to be "conservative", but they're SO DAMN STUPID, they try to borrow their way out of paying for spending increases they enact every year.  That's not conservative.  That's Republican leaders taking advantage of MORONS!

    5% of those showing symptoms are fatal. It doesn't include people who are asymptomatic.  It's only 1% of the total cases that are fatal.

    It would seem the entire human population has gotten really bad at things like math, science, and especially common decency.  If we can’t even agree on how much a threat this virus truly is perhaps we aren’t worth saving.

    As I said before, once upon a time, when the only testing was being done to already seriously ill patients in hotspots, not surprisingly the fatality rate was around 5%. But as we tested more and people around the country who are positive, the fatality rate has consistently dropped and is now around 1% (or less).

    I don't have that report and you didn't present it, but here is what is happening now....

    New cases of COVID-19 hit record levels in recent days, but the number of fatalities has stabilized in the last few days at a level well below its peak. Deaths are either falling or holding steady. The vast majority of fatalities involve seniors and individuals with chronic underlying health conditions. CDC Director Robert Redfield attributed the spike in cases across the United States to “many factors to include increased testing, community transmission, and outbreaks in settings such as nursing homes and occupational settings.” In response, some of the most populous states and cities have paused or rolled back their reopening plans. [What Redfield failed to mention is that the tests are incapable of distinguishing between COVID-19 and many other viruses, including seasonal flu. For all we know, the so-called “cases” of COVID-19 could be responses to other things. The entire charade of “case” statistics is theater, not science.] -GEG

    No.

    Your problem is that you aren't distinguishing between "confirmed cases" and the actual number of infected.  The latter number is much, much higher.  This is because the vast majority of people who were infected and later recovered were never tested, because they didn't have serious enough symptoms to worry or seek medical attention.  If you didn't get tested, you didn't become a confirmed case.  "Confirmed cases", for the most part, are those with severe symptoms.  Naturally, those with severe symptoms will die at a higher rate than the average person who got infected.

    All indications are that the actual number of infected Americans, past and present, is at least ten times the "confirmed cases."  Accordingly, the fatality rate is at least ten times lower, or 0.5% at most.

    This is what happens when you allow yahoo "news" writers to do your reasoning for you. You end up looking like a fool.
