@Rich the figures say it all.

Germany 109 deaths / million
West Virgina 53 deaths / million
Thailand >1 death / million


We're doing comparisons, right? :D

You are comparing a single state in a country, to an entire nation. Classic cherry-picking.

The province I live in had 0 deaths / million, but also had 0 cases of Covid-19. :p

This set me thinking, is this a fair comparison?


How far would the average person in West Virginia need to travel to infect another person assuming an averaged population density.

I work it out to be about 200 yards.

For Germany the same calc gives 25 yards.

Perhaps the density of the population is a factor as to why the virus spreads more slowly. Certainly cities like New York, London etc suggest it's harder to control when people are in closer proximity.

I expect all of us educated enough to make the necessary protection and hygiene to minimize our chance of contacting the virus.

Regardless of whoever said or didn't say (and regardless of who I support), do it if you don't want it. Even "inconvenience" is bad enough.

Anything else is just distraction.

To make many on this forum happy, let's wish it started with Trump, Pence, their families, and then the GOP and all their supporters.

To use your type of selective awareness, the US death count increased from 262 on July 5th by a factor of almost 4 to 993 on July 7th. You'll be out of your 2,000 Euros sooner than you may have thought. :p

The US death rate per capita is almost 4 times higher than the death rate for Germany.

Maybe to a pofo epidemiologist but not really. Those figure don't say anything about how deaths are defined or counted and they don't say anything about the hundreds of other factors that might go into to creating a false statistical disparity. You should go back to epidemiology school and try to pay attention this time.

I blame it mainly on the Democrat political leaders in the USA.

:roll:

Says a 15 year old conspiracy theorist living in his mother's basement. If you have some statistics, that someone with your rudimentary level of what you flatter yourself calling understanding, why don't you share them with us?

Or maybe look at some porn. Keep the sound off so your mom won't know.

Sivad has feelings, Drlee. I'm not saying that like, "Be nice to the slow child." But like, Sivad has feelings and the numbers don't feel right to him. You can't argue with that. You can't argue with Sivad's precious feelings.

Sivad has put forth a rhetorically bullet proof argument and stands on an invincible position: "Change my precious soft boy feelings."
#15106829
I failed to realize that. He is a Trump supporter so it never occurred to me that he would have feelings. I am deeply sorry.

Had I known that I would have been much nicer to him. And, you know how they used to say "women's intuition" back in the day? Maybe he has intuition. We should all respect that. Do you have intuition Sivad? Inquiring minds want to know.
#15106842
Sivad does raise a good question: are America's covid death numbers reliable or accurately counted compared to a first world nation like Germany?

As a nation of lepers who are barred from traveling to first world nations, and whose own president questions the legitimacy of our electoral process, I think you have to double or at least triple any numbers from the US. They are likely undercounted due to incompetence or malicious intent.
