The dangerousness of the virus is overstated by covid-with being combined with covid-if, as per WHO pandemic policy.

Most countries have been reporting roughly in line with this.

As most countries report in the same way, CFR does mean something (if not, the absolute death rate can be used, as each affected region reaches herd immunity) and treatment outcomes can suggest that some treatments are better than others.

biscuits just out of curiosity what do your friends and family think of your theories? how do they react? are they generally supportive? tolerant? amused? outraged? concerned for your well being?

They're surprisingly onboard with them this time round.

which fits perfectly with his position on coronavirus even down to his passionate relationship with charts and graphs and statistics.

I know I keep banging this drum, but we really, really need to move away using the death rate as the sole metric of how well a given country is doing with the disease. Here's another young and previously healthy person who's still pretty much fucked four months after she contracted it.

My Day 1 – a term people with Long Covid use to mark the first day of symptoms – was 25 March.
Four months later, I’m still dealing with a near-daily fever, cognitive dysfunction and memory issues, GI issues, severe headaches, a heart rate of 150+ from minimal activity, severe muscle and joint pain, and a feeling like my body has forgotten how to breathe. Over the past 131 days, I’ve intermittently lost all feeling in my arms and hands, had essential tremors, extreme back, kidney, and rib pain, phantom smells (like someone BBQing bad meat), tinnitus, difficulty reading text, difficulty understanding people in conversations, difficulty following movie and TV plots, sensitivity to noise and light, bruising, and petechiae – a rash that shows up with Covid. These on top of the CDC-listed symptoms of cough, chills, and difficulty breathing.
