As of March 16, the data from the United States falls short of justifying the draconian measures that are now being implemented. These declarations are Corona (Inst.) to endow governments with the power to impose quarantines and travel bans, close schools, restrict public gatherings, shut down major sporting events, stop public meetings, and close restaurants and bars.
Private institutions are imposing similar restrictions. The one-two punch of public and private restrictions has caused a huge jolt to the economy. The irony here is that even though self-help measures like avoiding crowded spaces make abundant sense, the massive public controls do not. In light of the available raw data, public officials have gone overboard.
To begin with, the word pandemic should not be lightly used. Recall that the Spanish influenza pandemicfully worthy of the name, resulted in perhaps as many as a half-billion infections and between 50 and million deaths, world-wide, of which somewere Americans, many coming back from Europe in the aftermath of the First World War.
The World Health Organization recently declared coronavirus a pandemic at a time when the death count was at 4, presently being just over 6, It will surely rise no matter what precautions are taken going forward, but what is critical is some estimate of the rate. By way of comparison, the toll from the flu in the United States since October ran as follows: between 36 to 51 million infections, between thousand to thousand flu hospitalizations, and between 22 thousand to Corona (Inst.) thousand flu deaths.
That works out to between roughly betweentonew infections per day, and between to deaths per day for an overall mortality rate of between 0. As we think about the mortality rate of COVID, there are some important pieces of data to consider. The chart below documents the most current numbers reported by the New York Times as of March 16 for the four hardest hit states:. Note that Washington state, with reported cases and 42 deaths, has a mortality rate of 6.
While only contributing 57 cases, it was the source of 27 of the reported deaths, almost two-thirds of the fatalities. We should expect, as has been the case, that the mortality rate in Washington will decline as the newer cases will not come exclusively from that high-risk population.
The next three states have 1, diagnosed cases and 11 deaths for a mortality rate of 0. Unlike the deadly exposures in Kirkland, the exposures in Corona (Inst.) York state produced many documented illnesses, Corona (Inst.) only two deaths even after two weeks of exposure.
And while it is easy to miss latent cases, it is harder to miss any virus-related death. Given that the incubation period is about two-weeks, the pool of cases before March 1 should be small. Top U. Many experts are questioning whether there is enough evidence proving a need for boosters given that the vaccines remain effective at what they were intended to do—preventing serious disease, hospitalization, and death from COVID Air quality experts are urging schools to do more this fall to make sure kids — as well as teachers and staff — are breathing air as free as possible from coronavirus particles.
Three studies published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention CDC on Wednesday show that protection against infection from the coronavirus in vaccinated individuals has declined over time.

For example, some of those doses are going to be targeted to India, which is facing a tragic surge in cases. The idea is to get vaccines to where they are needed most. But it has to be done early. And then the third strategy is based on foreign policy decisions.

Researchers pieced these different views together to create a larger composite image, revealing the structure, temperature and nature of extreme ultraviolet emissions from this region of the sun's outer atmosphere, which is generally more difficult to see, according to the statement.
The ultraviolet emissions released from the sun's corona are tied to space weather events like the steady stream of the solar wind and solar eruptions that can travel to Earth and technologies including radio communications, power grids and navigation systems.
