: 468K COVID-related deaths*
: 331M US Population
: 468K/331M = 0.14%
The CFR is currently at 1.75%, not 0.14%.
I'd think that after this many months of news, you'd at least get a clue on how it works. You don't even understand what "COVID-related" means, but you spout off like you're some sort of expert.
Back in May, the CFR was over 5%. It's coming down, fortunately. But while you site all those other diseases without any context, the truth is that we haven't had an infectious outbreak that has killed this many people in a year since the Spanish flu pandemic. That was a century ago, for those keeping score at home.
You're one of those people who have been yapping that we should be back week after week since the beginning of this pandemic. Sooner or later you'll be right, and then you'll idiotically claim that you were right all along. Unfortunately, you won't be able to see many of us on this board performing a face-palm when you do.
