Don Jr. touts ’almost nothing’ COVID deaths on day when it surges to nearly 1K

Donald Trump Jr., in an interview with Fox, claimed COVID-19 deaths ’are almost nothing’. ’Why aren’t they talking about deaths? Because the numbers are almost nothing, because we’ve gotten control of thing,’ Don Jr. claimed. The US has recorded 974 deaths on Thurs., 994 on Wed. and 985 on Tues., with the 7-day rolling average for daily new deaths rising from 724 to 787 over the past two weeks.

75,000 confirmed cases a day, 1000 deaths. That's a 1.3% mortality rate. THAT'S why they're talking about "rising cases, rising cases, rising cases" and NOT deaths. And this low a mortality rate does NOT warrant a lockdown that will cost 100s of thousands of jobs a day, 10s of thousands of business shutting their doors permanently, exacerbate the mental health crisis, lead to increased suicide rates and damage the economy for generations to come. This news is really just an attempt to distract from the fact that the economy grew 33% last quarter.

Covid cases and testing is way up. So more people that happen to die of lets say of a heart attack will be counted as a covid death. Simply because they happen to test postive for covid. Some of this is driven by overly sensitive tests that give false positives. So yes actual deaths are way down.

Until they print the real death toll not the guy gets shot 6 times but has covid so covid killed him cdc even stated only 6% of the deaths are due to covid solely so that would be 11,000 out of 370 million ppl

1000 deaths is "almost nothing '? Well 9/11 only killed 3000 people, so you could say that this was also" almost nothing "

If this rate maintains and never changes again, it will put Covid at 365,000 deaths annually, making it the third leading cause of death right after cancer and before accidents. The trend downwards from "ermagerd we're all gonna die" to "oh, I'm sorry to hear that" should be celebrated. The deaths themselves are nothing to crow about, but when you flip it around you can point out that 98% of cases recover, isn't that good?

We are now talking about a virus that is at most as deadly as influenza (likely less so). I couldn't care less why old people die. They aren't dying any younger as a result of covid and no one else is dying so can we just move on already. What a waste of energy.
