In Quebec, 68% of deaths were in long term care homes. I'd really like to know how many of the current deaths, worldwide, are in those types of places that warehouse old and infirm people like sardines, and are understaffed and overworked and unsanitary.
Of course if you're lying there in bed all day unable to really move around, and coughing upwards - those virus filled droplets just fall back down and you breathe them in over and over. On top of not getting bathed regularly, not having your soiled garments changed promptly, staying in the same room all day and never getting fresh air, and not getting the best nutrition because everything you eat is mostly based on cost more than nutrition etc..
Survival rate for people under 50 is 99.94% in Quebec. That's 60 people out of every 100K. In a normal year, the flu kills between 8-12 people out of every 100K in Quebec. So, it IS 5x as deadly as the flu. But, dying because you got kicked by a horse might be 5x more likely than dying from getting kicked by a cow, but, they're both pretty unlikely if you don't live on a farm (IE - live in a long term care home).
Math doesn't lie, news corporations that are getting their ad dollars back after losing most of the world to independent creators on social media, are raking in record breaking profits and getting eyeballs back with the fear porn. So, they have a vested interest in keeping people engaged, and at home, to have more time to engage.
The numbers we also need to know are: How many people defaulted on mortgages, rent and other debts?
How many primary income earners are out of work?
How many people have seen their income cut more than in half?
How many individuals and businesses have declared bankruptcy, which will follow them for 7 years?
How many people have had to permanently close their small or medium business?
How many people are out of work because of that?
Has the suicide rate gone up, and by how much?
How many more people are asking their doctors about antidepressants?
How many children are developing PTSD symptoms about hugging their extended family?
How many parents and grandparents are refusing to see their family because they're terrified?
How many people are not seeing doctors about lumps and new moles and whatever else because they're terrified to go to a doctor, or because they'd rather not tie up healthcare resources because they want the COVID people to have first access?
How many people are using drugs and alcohol to cope?
How many are overdosing?
How many people are developing hoarding tendencies, worried about toilet paper and food shortages?
How many people are developing OCD tendencies around sanitization?
How do all the other bacteria and viruses in the environment that we're also killing with sanitization interact with us as humans as far as gut health etc?
How many people are lonely and angry and sad a large portion of the time?
How many more domestic disputes, and how much more child abuse is happening because people are stuck with their abusers all day?
Will we ever get our freedoms back, or will these rules become the "new normal" like all the things that were enacted after 9/11?
Etc etc etc...
