Click here and then look at the paragraph just above the horizontal dark blue bar that says “Table 3”.
Big thanks to Steve Deace for pointing out these statistics.
So if 174,070 deaths have been COVID-related, only 10,444 have been from COVID alone. (These statistics are as of 9/5/20.)
Yes, that’s still 10,444 too many.
But in a nation of 330,000,000 that means that only 1 person in 31,597 will die solely from COVID.
Or, you can look at it this way: if you don’t have one of the listed comorbidities, you have a 99.9968 percent chance of NOT dying of COVID.
So, get out of your fetal position.
Crawl out from under your bed.
Take off your STUPID face diaper.
Grab your phone, keys and wallet.
Walk out the door and lock it behind you.
