Originally posted by Jiggaboo_Johnson Yeah adding an assumed 4.72 million to the actual known numbers isn't how you work with statistics…
It's 2.1% per the officially recognized numbers.
If 40% are asymptomatic and we know many people will have the disease without ever being tested, I think it's a fair assumption.

11.8 mil infections
40% of people are asymptomatic, so you can multiply the cases by at least that many. Plenty of people have had the rona and never got tested, too.
Furthermore, the CDC came out with that handy dandy little memo a few weeks ago admitting only 6-7% of deaths are from covid. The rest are deaths with covid. Being generous, let's assume the death rate, then, is about 12% of those reported.
11.8 mil x 0.40 = 4.72 mil
11.8 mil + 4.72 mil = 16.52 mil
252k x 0.12 = 30,240
30,240 / 16.52 mil = 0.18%
US Population = ~375 mil
16.52 mil / 375 mil = 4.4% chance of being infected in America
30,240 / 375 mil = 0.008% chance (across all age groups) of dying from covid in America

2020-11-20 at 5:06 PM UTC in Aldra is suspicious of coronavirus vaccines, & he is planning on declining vaccination...With a mortality rate of 0.3%, I just don't see why I would bother. It's the WuFlu, not small pox. I'd get vaccinated for something like small pox in a heartbeat.

2020-11-20 at 4:37 PM UTC in Why are some areas so damn poor?Maybe the solution is to just sell guns and booze - two things people will always buy. Open a little shop in a pit stop town and call it good.
???/10 how would that go?
2020-11-14 at 4:21 PM UTC in Why are some areas so damn poor?I've been thinking about moving somewhere more rural, but as I was looking, I couldn't help but notice how damn poor some places are. Median household income of $25k a year? Average individual income of $13k a year? How the fuck do people manage to live on that with a family?
Granted, land and cost of living is significantly lower, but still. Even cutting out all the unnecessary consumerist shit, you'd still have to pay for:
-A house + upkeep
-Vehicle expenses (including gas)
-Guns & ammo
-Insurance (health, home, auto)
How do people do it? Fona, Bill Krozby, and other saps who work for next to nothing, feel free to chime in. How are your bills paid?

2020-07-25 at 11:05 AM UTC in No one likes blacks, regardless of species.That's probably due to the superstition surrounding black cats, and the plainness of brown ones. Doubt the same would be found with dogs.

2020-07-25 at 6:26 AM UTC in ifak and youI recently added decompression needles for chest wounds in each of my packs. The ones you jab into your chest to release pressure that can build from an entry wound. Google always has to remind me of the official name - Tension Pneumothorax Needles.
Seems daunting that you would essentially have to stab yourself with it, but if you're dying I suppose it would be no problem at all.
