Statistical Tidbits

USA – As of today we have 14,760 US deaths reported due to Covids-19 aka coronavirus.  Only 451 of those deaths came from California.  Keep in mind, CA has 40M people and by contrast 451 is really low.  On another level, we’ll have about 45k deaths from cancer statewide.  Given the trajectory of Covids, it seems we’ll have about 75% more cancer deaths this year than from the coronavirus.  In rural places like Chico, the death rate from coronavirus is currently nil.

    What the he!! is going on here? Are the Dems up to their usual dirty tricks? Must see interview.


    “Dr. Scott Jensen is both a physician and a Minnesota state senator. Yesterday he was interviewed by a local television station and dropped a bombshell: he, and presumably all other Minnesota doctors, got a seven-page letter from the Minnesota Department of Health that gave guidance on how to classify COVID-19 deaths. The letter said that if a patient died of, e.g., pneumonia, and was believed to have been exposed to COVID-19, the death certificate should say that COVID-19 was the cause of death even though the patient was never tested, or never tested positive, for that disease.

    Dr. Jensen found this to be irregular and contrary to the usual practice for filling out death certificates. It seems intended to inflate the number of Wuhan flu deaths; it is hard to see any other potential purpose. The most entertaining thing about the exchange is the shock expressed by the interviewer. Here is the video:”

    The response measures are looking more and more like overkill, no pun intended. It’s hard to say how much they will harm the country.

    There’s no doubt that the big gov team has inserted politics, even at the global level. How far will they push it? At this point it’s hard to tell but they sure don’t mind inflicting damage. Democrats look like petty partisan fools.

    I think this will all blow away soon and the American people will be more than anxious to start winning again.

    And here’s some more about CDC “guidelines” from Dr. Jensen that’s worth a look:
