YouTube deletes an Italian channel with 14 years of history, half a million subscribers and two thousand videos.
In less than 24h it receives from its followers more than €150,000 needed to buy a national TV channel to broadcast throughout Italy.
Yes, people die every year but as with the last year it died 7500 more in Sweden than comparable years before it. It was the first time in 100 years the life expectancy actually got lower.. Total deaths of Covid is 13000+ right now and Sweden is not the worst in the class... many European countries have had a much harder time.
So the observable fact suggest there is a pandemic..
Also.. I don't really need public numbers to see the effect of the pandemic. I work in health care and I see the pandemics effect every day... a big difference today from earlier pandemics is that we have better hospitals and thus saves a lot more lives. We have also better treatments, communications e.t.c..
This is not a regular flu season... far from it.
@mystik @Jessica @Singularity @alexl Ok, so the guy only uses two months (june and july) to makes his estimates... convenient.. I suggest you get some actual real facts/data that is not obfuscated.. What a joke..
You can see the data here https://scb.se/link/0fec627c501e476aacf7ae328c7a4a8b.aspx
As you can see the average per year is about 90 000... except for 2020. That year it is 98 000. The year before it was 89 000. So what was it that happened to raise death 1/10 by year?
It is almost 1 in 10th (i.e. 10% increase) more deaths than a normal year. I would say that is significant... and it would have been a lot worse if it wasn't for the regulations and health care given... and Sweden is about in the lower middle of the pack so a lot of countries have it much worse.
@mystik @Jessica @Singularity @alexl No, because 1993 it was about 2000 more deaths and 1988 it was about 3000. You have to go back pretty far to get a ~10% increase.. so it is significant. 2020 is also a year that breaks a downward trend. It is also a year that lowers the life expectancy which is very unusual and haven't happened in about 100 years. Last time that happened was 1968 but that was a smaller dip and before that, the Spanish flu.
It is far from a normal year...
That spike is quite considerable since it only takes into account the beginning of the pandemic. It would be interesting to see the winter wave on the graph.
Tell that to the families of the 7,000 people, especially when many people were trying to keep from catching and spreading the virus.
I took the number of deaths and divided it by the sum of number of recovered cases plus the number of deaths.
Why not? The news was coming up with higher percentages because they took the number of deaths divided by current infections.
Because the state health departments used the number of cases that tested positive for SARS-CoV-2.
@ew Some sources say the number of coronavirus cases is underrepresented because of people who don't have access to healthcare that died in their homes.
I used to create maps of coronavirus data that was coming from the CDC and state health departments. During the early stages of the pandemic, the mortality rate in PA alone was 10% then dropped to 6% as time went on.
@mystik The US is 6%. What I gave you was México, which is even higher.
2.5 million cases; of which ¼ million people died.
