We get stats on the Media about “number of cases” of CororinaVirus, and we get stats for “number of deaths” (those I question…not that they are dead, but that they died from Covid-19…often they are already old, weak or otherwise compromised and have other complicating factors).
But one bit of data I don’t ever see is the number of people needing little or no care, or some level of hospitalization because of the effects of Covid-19. In fact, if you look, the data is pretty much only aimed at “deaths” and not much else.
Out of the several thousand cases for any one given area that have shown enough symptoms that they are tested, how many need any level of hospitalization?
I guess because they aren’t anything the media can sensationalize, they don’t give us any of that data.
I do think it would be a good bit of data though.
People showing symptoms and tested vs people tested showing positive vs people needing actual care vs people needing hospitalization vs people needing intensive care vs people dying.
I think the numbers would be not as terrible as the media and our governments might like you to think.
Then again, until I see some data I just don’t know.
