Covid-19 Statistics

 

 

COVID-19 Statistics  (updated every SUNDAY by 5:00 PM EST):

  • The number of total cases is unknowable.  There are likely millions of cases that have resolved with no complications and more than 50% of all cases show no symptoms at all.
  • The most vulnerable are those with compromised lung/heart function, such as in smokers & those who vape or those with an autoimmune disease.
  • Death is usually caused via a secondary pneumonia in those whose health is already compromised and this is via a cytokine storm created by the patient’s own immune system.  The best treatment option for those who are hospitalized may be common oral and/or inhaled steroids.
  • The prestigious New England Journal of Medicine is reporting that the global death rate (as a %) is much lower than reported.
  • Death rates currently remain well below peak.
