What we know is always more important than what we don’t know. Why is that? — because it effects our responses. So let’s examine what we know from a temporary ecosystem that based on all of our understanding is far worse than the ecosystem in which most of us live — the one that we are surrounded in every day. The following is fact. It is science.
As a starting point, many modellers have turned to the case of the Diamond Princess, a cruise ship that experienced one of the first large outbreaks of the coronavirus. Most of the 3711 people on board were tested for the virus – 712 were found to have been infected, and at least 13 people have died.”* (You can read more below from the site that gives us this data.)
So what do we know from the above data?
⁃ 712 of 3711 or 19.2% caught the virus in what may be called a place much worse for the spread of infection than where any of us live.
⁃ 13 of 3711 or .3 tenths of 1% have died from this total population.
⁃ 13 of 712 or 1.8% of those infected have died.
What we don’t know.
– most is not all, so how many of the total were not tested
– what if any underlying conditions did the 13 who died have?
– how did this population compare demographically to the overall demographics in our world?
– how did those who died compare to me personally?
The question that we then must ask is this — is what I am allowing my government to do to me worth the societal destruction that we have seen from this virus?
What else do we know which even lessens this risk more than the pure statistics? The cruise ship is the vacation choice of an older portion of our population making it’s statistics even worse than our own reality, and therefore even worse than our own statistics should be.
What those who really want to know the truth about this virus should be demanding are the statistics from the nursing homes in New York. What was the total population? How many survived who were infected? What was the death rate from the total population? What was the death rate from the total of those infected?
