No, I’m Not Worried: Part 7

This one is going to be another relatively stats-light “Not Worried”. Instead I’m going to link to this article by Dr. Briggs.

In short: This probably isn’t even going to kill as many people as the swine flu. And remember, this is assuming our miracle cure isn’t muscled past the FDA and mass produced quickly too – and again, the shoe hasn’t dropped on hydrochloriquine  yet.

But I know. The issue that’s going to crash our economy isn’t the number of deaths, it’s how overworked our medical system will be!

Hey, remember how the numbers in our last article were revised, and soon after it was admitted that actually the medical system wouldn’t be overwhelmed? Remember how Murphy, the Governor of our favorite Second Worst State in the Country (and who has been impressively sane throughout all of this), said our medical system could handle it?

Friends, we have reached what I call “The Global Warming Zone”. This is the point where the old doom-and-gloom proclamations didn’t come true, so you keep moving the goalposts down to try and convince everyone the DOOM is coming. I’d be more sympathetic to the whole ventilator argument if this didn’t all originally start with people telling us that deaths were heading towards the millions and the U.S. just WASN’T PREPARED FOR IT!!! Except, wait, turns out we were, but it’s still going to be WORSE THAN EVER BEFORE!!! because of those damn ventilators.

Remember: The country does not have an epidemic. Certain hotspots in certain parts of the country have an epidemic. The rest of the country has a high number of colds, some of which are killing older people or people with health issues.

So: Still not worried.

Oh yes, as for dear Governor Cuomo, this is what I think of him. This is quote from the Sherlock Holmes story “The Adventure of Charles Augustus Milverton”:

Do you feel a creeping, shrinking sensation, Watson, when you stand before the serpents in the Zoo and see the slithery, gliding, venomous creatures, with their deadly eyes and wicked, flattened faces? Well, that’s how Milverton impresses me. I’ve had to do with fifty murderers in my career, but the worst of them never gave me the repulsion which I have for this fellow.

Wash your hands.
