Infographic: Daily deaths in the United States, by cause – covid-19, seasonal flu, heart disease, cancer, accidents and more

Wednesday, April 15, 2020 by: Mike Adams

(Natural News) Because there has been so much disinformation pushed out about covid-19 by some pro-Trump indy media pundits who fail to accurately interpret numbers (like David Knight from InfoWars as well as Dr. David Brownstein), we’ve put together a very clear chart of daily deaths in the United States from all the top causes.

The chart, shown below, may be shared everywhere and clearly shows that covid-19 is the No. 1 cause of death in America right now, on a day-to-day basis.

Citing published CDC data on daily deaths (sources below), the chart shows a snapshot from April 14th, 2020, revealing how covid-19 deaths far surpass daily deaths from cancer, heart disease, accidents, stroke, Alzheimer’s disease and other causes.

The 2,407 daily deaths from covid-19, as of April 14th, towers far above the average daily deaths from seasonal flu: just 94.

Importantly, many pro-Trump pundits have broadcast disinformation for many weeks, falsely claiming the seasonal flu is killing over 9,700 American per day (they claim a 10% case fatality rate for the flu, which would be over 3.5 million deaths per year). In reality, the seasonal flu kills less than 1 in 1,000 people it infects, as the CDC clearly reveals in this influenza burden table:

Estimated Influenza Disease Burden, by Season — United States (for the 2018-19 influenza season)

Symptomatic Illnesses: 35,520,883
Medical Visits: 16,520,350
Hospitalizations: 490,561
Deaths: 34,157

Do the math. 34,157 deaths / 35,520,883 symptomatic illnesses is: 0.096% case fatality rate, which is less than 1 in 1,000.

When it comes to navigating this pandemic, it’s important to get the math right.

Here’s the full chart, showing all the top causes of death in the USA as of April 14th, via the CDC. Feel free to share and post the meme: (Click to Source)

WHO: Europe now the EPICENTER of the coronavirus pandemic

Monday, March 16, 2020 by: Arsenio Toledo

(Natural News) The World Health Organization has announced that Europe is now the “epicenter” of the global coronavirus pandemic.

WHO Director-General Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said in a press conference that this is because more cases are being reported outside of China than in the coronavirus’ country of origin.

“Europe has now become the epicenter of the pandemic, with more reported cases and deaths than the rest of the world combined, apart from China… More cases are now being reported every day than were reported in China at the height of its pandemic,” said Dr. Tedros.

Dr. Tedros continued to say that every country in the world now needs to enact a more “comprehensive approach” to combating the spread of the coronavirus.

“Not testing alone, not contact tracing alone, not quarantine alone, not social distancing alone — do it all,” he said.

As of press time, the Johns Hopkins University’s Coronavirus Resource Center reports that there are now 145,369 confirmed coronavirus cases, including 5,429 deaths and 71,694 recoveries. While China still has the most reported cases by far, at 80,971, the rest of Europe is steadily catching up.

Coronavirus pandemic sweeps through Europe

On Wednesday, the WHO declared that COVID-19 is now characterized as a pandemic. European countries are reporting more cases each day, and each country is reacting differently to the spread of the disease.

Italy, which is the hardest-hit country in the world other than China, has been put under a national lockdown. The country reportedly has 17,660 cases, including 1,266 deaths. Under the rules of their lockdown, travel will only be allowed for people who have an “urgent reason.” Most businesses in the country, except for groceries and pharmacies, were ordered to close until April 3, and professional sporting events have been suspended. According to the Italian Foreign Minister, Luigi Di Maio, anybody who defies the lockdown and heads outside without a permit will either be fined or face criminal charges.

Spain, the second hardest-hit country in Europe, has 5,232 confirmed cases, including 133 deaths and 193 recoveries. The country has suspended its congress, from convening for at least a week after several ministers of parliament (MP) tested positive for COVID-19. All flights to and from Italy have been canceled until March 25. All schools and universities in the country have been closed, and all public events that involve more than 1,000 people have been banned.

Germany, the third hardest-hit country in Europe, has 3,675 confirmed cases, including eight deaths and 46 recoveries. The country has tightened border control checks, with health authorities being given the discretion to decide whether or not anybody exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms should be quarantined. Several states have closed down schools and canceled events that include more than 1,000 people, following recommendations from the federal government. (Related: German chancellor Merkel warns 70 percent of Germany now at risk of being infected by the coronavirus.)

France, which has 3,667 confirmed COVID-19 cases, is focusing its efforts on detecting coronavirus cases. Non-essential surgical operations have been delayed to prioritize the attention of medical workers to COVID-19 patients. French citizens returning from China, Iran, northern Italy, Singapore and South Korea will immediately be placed under quarantine upon their arrival. Gatherings that involve more than 1,000 people have been banned unless they are “essential to the life of the nation.”

Many more countries around Europe are experiencing the deadly effects of the pandemic: Denmark has shut down its schools and “indoor public cultural institutions” such as libraries. Sweden is ordering anybody who exhibits flu-like symptoms to self-quarantine, while Austria and Greece are ordering people who have recently traveled to affected countries to go into isolation.

“Any country that looks at the experience of other countries with large epidemics and thinks that won’t happen to us is making a deadly mistake,” said Dr. Tedros, “it can happen to any country.” (Click to Source)

REACTION to the “hospital beds will be overrun by May 8th” story that’s getting widespread coverage: Our model shows May 30th may be a better estimate

Saturday, March 07, 2020 by: Mike Adams

(Natural News) Saturday morning I was about to write this story about how hospital beds would be overrun by mid to late May, when I discovered someone else had beat me to the punch. A Zero Hedge story, linked by Drudge, cites Liz Specht (@LizSpecht), who has a PhD in biology and works at the Good Food Institute. She lays out the math which explains why hospital beds will be overrun by around May 8th.

You can find that story here. It’s a good read, of course, and it largely parallels my own pandemic projection model that I published several days earlier.

I also find it confirming that other PhDs are coming to same same mathematical conclusions I’ve reached as a food scientist and published science author myself. It turns out that all the really smart science nerds are reaching the same conclusion on this: It’s gonna be way, way worse than any mainstream source is admitting.

My own model, detailed at this link, predicts the following situation for May 8th if nothing is done to stop this projection (i.e. if no harsh travel restrictions are put in place):

– 174,362 actively infectious Americans
– Exactly cumulative 15,000 deaths in America
– 121,848 recovered Americans who are no longer infectious

These numbers are slightly lower than what Liz Specht predicts in her own work. My pandemic projection model is intentionally more conservative in the numbers, and it makes more complex assumptions than Specht’s work. For example, my model calculates 14-day lag times for the infected, and it spreads out the R0 infections over the entire 14 days. This results in a slower projected spread but, I would suggest, represents a better model of how the virus actually spreads.

My model predicts hospital beds won’t be overrun until May 30th

I’m not disagreeing with Specht here, as she has done excellent work. However, I would offer an alternative view based on a more complex model that I think may be more accurate. This model predicts the hospital beds won’t really be overrun until the end of May.

Here’s what my model shows on May 15th, for example, assuming no strong interventions that achieve isolation (travel restrictions, etc.):

– 323,245 actively infectious Americans
– 28,170 cumulative deaths in America
– 226,804 recovered Americans who are no longer infectious

And by May 30th, here’s what the projections show:

– 1.2 million actively infectious Americans
– 107,224 cumulative deaths in America
– 854,542 recovered Americans who are no longer infectious

We also know that about 20% of the actively infected will need hospitalization.

On May 15th, we have 323,245 actively infected people, and 20% of that is 64,649. America can handle 64,649 hospitalizations. Thus, it doesn’t look like hospitals will be overrun by May 15th, at least not according to this model.

But by May 30th, we have 1.2 million actively infectious people in America, meaning we need 240,000 hospitalizations during that time. That’s where I see the breaking point of the U.S. hospital system.

Thus, with respect to Dr. Specht, I would suggest that May 30th is a more accurate target date for the U.S. hospital system to be overrun.

If you still have a functioning Twitter account — mine has been banned by the techno-fascist asshat Jack Dorsey for a very long time for talking about vaccines — send @LizSpecht this URL, please, so she can take a look at this model.

The only real criticism of my model is that it’s too conservative

I’ve only used an R0 value of 1.82 for my projections, while the real virus spread an amplification factor of something closer to 4.5 or perhaps even 6.6. This means my pandemic projection model is deliberately erring on the side of being too conservative. I’ve even publicly admitted this, explaining that if I used the more accurate R0 values, the projections become “apocalyptic” and far beyond the willingness of anyone to grasp.

Indeed, we are living in a time when most people can’t do math, and almost no one can accept reality. So we have to spoon feed little bits of reality to them, one piece at a time, until they can finally come to face the full picture without psychologically rejecting it. I apologize if this sounds condescending, but if you’re smart like me, you already know that most people can’t handle the truth on this.

Even now, my own text messages are blowing up with comments from people who claim my projections are “too scary,” even when I use the lower figures as assumptions. This just goes to underscore the state of mental fragility that now defines our “snowflake” society where everyone claims to be triggered by anything they don’t want to hear.

I keep telling people the virus doesn’t care about your feelings, but few seem to be willing to listen. It makes them uncomfortable to think about any future that doesn’t feel nice.

When I tell them I’m really, really good at math and aced the mathematics sections of college entrance exams, they think I’m being arrogant and condescending.

When I implore them to stock up on survival supplies and prepare for the collapse of society as we know it today, they tell me everything will be fine in 90 days and demand to know why I’m “attacking Trump.” (Huh?)

So we’re way beyond the point of rationality here. We’ve in full-blown la la land. We are living in the land of delusion where truth is treason and logic is a thought crime.

Aside from myself and Liz Specht, there’s another person who really, really gets all this. His name is Chris Martenson with PeakProsperity.com. He even uses the phrase, “Don’t Test, Don’t Tell” which I coined at Natural News in this article on Feb. 24. It was also the title of this podcast we published 12 days ago. Watch his video here (and someone please tell him to start a channel on Brighteon.com so that when he gets banned by YouTube, he can still reach people via Brighteon):

Chris Martenson and I have a very similar view on the coronavirus, and we’re both scientists who have a strong understanding of mathematics and biology. He’s been spot on from day one. I listen to his podcasts each day, and I often find him saying the exact same things I’m thinking. (I should invite him for an interview…)

If you want to hear my podcasts, which are a whole lot more opinionated and occasionally hilarious, check out the Health Ranger Report channel on Brighteon.com where you’ll find 3 new podcasts each weekday, much like the one shown below. Unlike Chris who has a more academic delivery style and tries to avoid being banned by YouTube, I don’t give a crap anymore since I’m banned everywhere, so I just lay it out in a completely uncensored fashion that sometimes borders on hilarious or rude, depending on the day: (Click to Source)

Coronavirus pandemic exploding across the globe: South Korea surpasses 600 infections, Italy declares national emergency, Japan infections skyrocketing, nearly 2,000 non-China infections worldwide and doubling every few days

Sunday, February 23, 2020 by: Mike Adams

(Natural News) While the communist-infiltrated World Health Organization still refuses to declare the coronavirus outbreak a “pandemic” — absurdly claiming there are no sustained local outbreaks outside of China — the truth about this accelerating infectious disease outbreak is rapidly starting to emerge from nations that aren’t fudging their numbers.

Confirmed infections in South Korea have exploded over the last 96 hours from just 30 cases to 602 confirmed cases. Local residents there are scrambling to purchase preparedness supplies, stripping shelves bare and leading to a sense of urgency. Some cities in South Korea have already taken on a “ghost town” vibe, with streets emptied and nearly all community functions shut down.

In Italy, confirmed cases have skyrocketed to 155 as an outbreak continues its exponential spread there, threatening all of Western Europe. A third death has been confirmed in Italy, and the Italian government has declared a national emergency. Italian officials, notably, are far more honest than U.S. officials in reporting these cases, even though they have so far failed to identify “patient zero” there, who may never be found.

Confirmed cases are exploding in Japan, too, which is no surprise given Japan’s criminally negligent handling of the Diamond Princess fiasco that ultimately led to thousands of potentially infected cruise passengers being released onto the streets of Tokyo.

Iran is also experiencing an explosion in deaths (now 8), and if the mainstream media’s “2% mortality rate” is to be believed, that would indicate there must be over 400 infected people in Iran, most of whom haven’t yet been identified (meaning they are spreading it to others).

Around the world, non-China infections are now doubling every 4 days or so, soaring to nearly 2,000 infections outside of China.
Here’s the current official count as of Feb. 23rd:

If this rate is sustained, there will be over 40,000 infections across the globe by the end of March.

The CDC appears to be covering up over 1,000 infections in the USA

As we documented 12 hours ago in this bombshell Natural News story, this is all taking place while the U.S. CDC appears to be actively engaged in a coordinated cover-up to withhold testing kits from U.S. hospitals and clinics, resulting in a situation where only 3 U.S. states are conducting any testing at all. That means 47 states are carrying out zero coronavirus testing, and the CDC itself has only tested 414 people in the entire nation. This, despite the fact that over 250,000 Chinese students attend U.S. universities, and unknown thousands traveled back to the United States after the recent Chinese New Year lockdown in Wuhan.

The CDC’s new strategy is to avoid testing anyone as a way to avoid reporting confirmed infections. In fact, the CDC has released a coronavirus testing flow chart that quite literally prohibits any testing of Americans who have been infected in the United States:

As you can see from the chart, any American showing symptoms but who didn’t travel from China and who doesn’t realize they’ve had any close contact with an infected person will NOT be tested for the coronavirus.

By definition, then, America will see zero “community outbreaks” since no testing is allowed for those who have been infected from community outbreaks.

This is what has allowed the CDC to continue claiming they see “no evidence of community outbreaks.” Of course they don’t. They’ve ruled out any testing that would reveal community outbreaks.

The actions of the CDC now border on criminal negligence, potentially costing the lives of tens of millions of Americans if the outbreaks which are already taking place in the United States are not honestly disclosed and dealt with.

U.S. government seems to be trying to “seed” coronavirus infections into Los Angeles

Meanwhile, the U.S. government just tried to transfer up to 50 confirmed infected patients to the Fairview Development Center in Costa Mesa, California, a kind of residential community with zero controls for level-4 bioweapons or infectious diseases. This center is right next to Huntington Beach / Newport Beach in California, just south of Los Angeles where over 10 million people could spread the disease if containment fails. See this map:

If the U.S. government were literally trying to cause a nationwide outbreak, they couldn’t have picked a better place to release the virus and watch it spread across Los Angeles, then the entire nation.

We are either dealing with unprecedented criminal negligence here or a deliberate campaign to spread the virus across America. Either way, the infections are mounting across America but the CDC refuses to test anyone who got infected in America.

As a result, this epidemic is exploding across the USA entirely unseen and unreported by the disastrously dishonest fake news media and the criminally-run Big Tech speech police that protect the “official” narrative.
