Default COVID Case Update

As most Villagers know, The Villages spans through three different counties. Here are the number of new COVID cases as of Jan. 12, according to the CDC website. In Lake County, there have been 4,107 new cases over the last week. 190 of those cases were admitted to the hospital, and less than ten resulted

I spent the whole day in the Villages hospital ER this week and only one person with Covid was there all day. They have a separate area for Covid patients in the ER waiting room. Just saying that there are times when I believe that the covid scare is greatly exaggerated.

Shameful scare mongering by the media and sheep people easily corralled. Based on the aforementioned number 5% were hospitalized (no mention how long) and .002% death rate. Meaning you have 99.98% chance not to die! This is how media should report COVID, not just a grand total total cases with no qualifications is shameful.

People should educate themselves and stop listening to this media ratings whoring hysteria.

If the media and CDC reported true useful facts, there would not be a terrified country. Why would they want that?

Agree---here are the numbers from the article:

"As most Villagers know, The Villages spans through three different counties. Here are the number of new COVID cases as of Jan. 12, according to the CDC website.

In Lake County, there have been 4,107 new cases over the last week. 190 of those cases were admitted to the hospital, and less than ten resulted in death.

In Marion County, there have been 3,127 new cases. 178 of those cases were admitted to the hospital, and less than ten resulted in death.

In Sumter County, there have been 823 new cases. 50 of those cases were admitted to the hospital, and no deaths were reported."


Note that the majority of cases and hospitalizations and all of the deaths were in Lake and Marion Counties, of which The Villages compromises an insignificant number of the population. That brings us to 823 "cases" in Sumter County---a case being a positive test without regard to whether or not the person is sick. And then to 50 admitted to a hospital---whether because of or incidental to COVID. No need to hide under your bed yet, and another example of media hysteria.

How is it media hysteria when they post the facts & data?? It’s only hysteria when people decide what they want to do with the data. Don’t blame the messenger!!

75% of the dead had 4 or more comorbidities. If you have hypertension, diabetes, CHF and are lugging around 40% extra body mass in fat, you're pretty likely to "catch" cardiac arrest to begin with. If you don't fit into that category, then yeah, they shouldn't be scaring you at all.

Which are different every day depending on who is presenting.
Which are flip flopped every day depending on who is presenting.
Which have no base line for legitimate comparison.
Etc.
Etc.
Really!?

The experts think almost everyone in the USA will contact Covid sometime in the next year or two. Your chances of severe illness or death are very low if you are vaccinated.

??? Where in that article was the scare mongering and media ratings whoring?

Using the numbers in that paper the death rate was something less than 0.25% meaning you have something more than 99.75% chance not to die. BUT, that is a misuse of those numbers.

How many paragraphs should have been spent explaining that new cases *might* have gone into the hospital last week (more likely this week) but any deaths won't come for another couple of weeks? The fewer than 20 deaths weren't from the 8,057 new cases last week, those deaths were from the cases two or three weeks ago.

When the media tries to explain the data they are called fear mongering and ratings whoring. When they don't try to explain it not only are they still criticized plus people tend to misunderstand and misuse the data.

Still, these numbers appear to be relatively low and hopefully they will stay that way.

Maybe I'm bit off base, but since when is simply stating the data without much comment scare mongering and shameful? I don't understand your comments.
