Four more deaths in Hong Kong today.
Ages:
75
79
86
89

Average age:  82

"The four latest fatalities suffered from chronic illness."
Three more deaths.
Ages:
81
91
92

As to the 81-year old:
In Tuen Mun Hospital, an 81-year-old patient who had been in an accident and emergency ward later tested positive for Covid-19.


Average age of the last 7 patients (all had pre-conditions or in an accident):
85 years old.


Oops!  One more death - age 94.
That raises the average of those that have died of COVID in Hong Kong in the past week to age 87.

THE EFFECT, HOWEVER, WAS BASICALLY LIKE THE FLU: 44% of attendees at Georgia overnight camp test positive for COVID-19. “Among 136 cases with available symptom data, 26% patients reported no symptoms. For the 100 with symptoms, the most common were fever, 65%; headache, 61%, and sore throat, 46%, the agency said.”

Is the virus real? Yes. Have people died from it? Yes. Do precautions need to be taken? Sure. But there has to be something reasonable between ignore it and shut down society until it’s eradicated.

Reasonably, it seems good that healthy people are exposed and develop more immunity within the population. Keeping people locked down only DELAYS this, it hasn’t proven to prevent it.

From the CDC:


https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/nvss/vsrr/covid_weekly/index.htm

Since May 2nd:

Ages 0-24:   133. (1.5 deaths per day)
Ages 85+:   11,768

The US population for those under age 25 is 104 million people.
I'm guessing that more Americans under age 25 have died in car wrecks in the last 90 days....

There are 4.2 million Americans aged 85+.  How many are in robust health?

I wife is going to Mass again, she registered and they are at limited capacity.  She goes on Saturday, I suspect they have more Masses now.

Should we open up large scale groups like rock concerts and sports events?

President Harry S. Truman said: “The fundamental basis of this nation’s laws was given to Moses on the Mount.  The fundamental basis of our Bill of Rights comes from the teachings…  If we don't have the proper fundamental moral background, we will finally wind up with a totalitarian government which does not believe in rights for anybody except the state.”

CDC director acknowledges hospitals have a monetary incentive to overcount coronavirus deaths


Hospitals get 20% more if it is a COVID death.
I wonder how many deaths we'd see if the Government decided to reimburse hospitals at only 90% for COVID deaths relative to other deaths?
Incentives matter.

Here are a couple of egregious example a couple of weeks ago.  USA Today reported:

The blinding bolt of lightning cracked like a mortar, throwing the 35-year-old man off the roof of the one-story apartment complex. He landed face down on the grass, shaking and convulsing. He rolled over. His eyes rolled back into his head as bystanders watched in horror.

Clay County emergency responders rushed the roofer to the hospital. He had a severe brain injury, a broken neck, torn spinal cord and bruised lungs. He died days later. The probable cause of death: "injuries sustained from lightning strike and fall from roof," but also listed by the medical examiner — “COVID-19 infection."

He's among 60 people in the Florida Medical Examiners Commission's COVID-19 database whose manner of death is classified as "accident," but whose likely "cause" of death also includes COVID.

The Washington Examiner reported:

Questions are being raised about Florida’s coronavirus death toll reporting after a man who died in a motorcycle accident was listed in the COVID-19 death count. Dr. Raul Pino, an Orange County health officer, told Fox 35 News that a supposed coronavirus victim in his 20s died in a motorcycle crash and didn't have any underlying conditions.

Cautiously optimistic in AL. A sustained downward trend in cases. Hospitalizations have flattened and now going down.

We were going downward until the riots and tourist season started. Then people started having large outdoor parties, etc. Since then many parts of Pa is trending upwards. I have also noticed that parts of Tn is doing the same.

Eight deaths in Hong Kong in the past 2 weeks from COVID.
Average age of 86, no one under age 75.
I bet they all had massive Vitamin-D deficiencies.
