Eric Zuesse – 6% of Confirmed Corona Virus 19 Cases End in Death

As of the end of the day on May 28th (start of May 29th, http://web.archive.org/web/20200529002214/https://www.Worldometers.info/CoronaVirus/), there had been A global total of 5,900,880 confirmed cases of Covid 19 (or Corona Virus 19), and 361,776 total deaths confirmed from that disease. That’s A 6.1% death rate.

However, it varies considerably by country. Here are the ten countries having the most Corona Virus cases, and, for each of these countries, the number of cases and of deaths which have resulted from its cases, and then the percentage ratio of those deaths to its total number of cases:

(1) USA            1,768,461 |  103,330 |      5.8%
(2) Brazil           438,812 |    26,991 |       6.2%
(3) RUssia          379,051 |      4,142 |        1.1%
(4) Spain           284,986     37,119 |      3.0%
(5) UK                  269,127  |    37,837 |    14.1%
(6) Italy              231,732  |    33,142    14.3%
(7) France         186,238  |    28,662    15.3%
(8) Germany   182,452  |      8,570 |       4.7%
(9) India             165,386  |      4,711  |      2.8%
(10) Turkey      160,979  |     4,461        2.8%  

Some other countries (which I have previously discussed and analyzed here: https://TheDuran.com/Americas-percentage-of-Worlds-CoronaVirus-cases-is-now-declining/)

(25) Sweden        35,727  |    4,266  |     11.9%
(47) Denmark      11,512 |        568  |       4.9%

(15) China            82,995  |    4,634  |      5.6%
(48) S Korea        11,344  |        269  |      2 .4%
(101) Venezuela    1,325           11       0.1%
(139) Taiwan             441              7  |      0.2%
(147)Vietnam            327  |            0       0.0%

And here, that will be repeated, but at the end of each line now will be added, first, the nation S infection rate (number of cases per million of population); and, second, the percentage that the number of cases there increased on May 28th (this latter being an indication as to how rapidly Corona Virus ID 19 is now spreading in that country); and, third, that nation S overall death rate (deaths per million population) from the epidemic.

(1) USA              1,768,461 | 103,330 |     5.8% 5,346  |    1 .3%      312
(2) Brazil             438,812   26,991     6.2% |  2,066 |     5.5% |       127
(3) RUssia           379,051  |     4,142 |      1.1% |   2,598   2.2% |        28
(4) Spain             284,986 |    37,119   13.0% |  6,096 |    0.4%     580
(5) UK                    269,127 |    37,837 |   14.1%  3,966 |    0.7% |     558
(6) Italy                 231,732 |   33,142   14.3% 3,832 |     0.3% |    548
(7) France            186,238 |   28,662 |   15.3% |  2,854 |      1.8% |    439
(8) Germany      182,452     8,570 |    4.7%    2,178 |     0.3% |     102
(9) India                165,386 |      4,711 |     2.8% |      120    4.4%         3
(10) Turkey         160,979 |     4,461     2.8%    1,911     0.7% |       53

(147) Vietnam            327 |             0 |    0.0% |           3 |     0.0%         0.0

Verbal explanations for the above variations between countries can be found in my May 24th “Ideology and Corona Virus” (https://TheDuran.com/Ideology-and-CoronaVirus/), and in my May 11th “America’s Percentage of World S Corona Virus Cases Is Now Declining” (https://TheDuran.com/Americas-percentage-of-World-SCoronaVirus-cases-is-now-declining/).

Obviously, the best governed countries would be those that have the lowest infection rate, the slowest (if any) increase rate, and the lowest overall Corona Virus ID 19 death rate. Those are the three bottom line measures, and, for each one of these countries, they are the last three numbers that are being shown here.

The biggest public policy finding that is proven in the existing data is (as I stated it in each of those prior two articles):

In Order to minimize the economic damage, controlling the epidemic is basic whatever is sound policy for the public S health is also sound economic policy.

The supposed either or choice (trade off) that exists between those two objectives does not exist.

I discussed Sweden and Denmark on May 11th because in almost all international rankings they are extremely similar, but their policies diverged strikingly on Corona Virus ID 19 and have since produced as close as can be to A controlled experiment, Sweden taking A very libertarian policy approach, and Denmark doing the opposite A Democratic socialist approach.

Prior to May 11th, many commentators were arguing that Denmark S measures were unnecessary because up till around May 1st both countries differed ONLY in their policy approaches (and so those commentators were saying that Denmark would suffer economic harms for nothing, no health gain). But the result turned out to be the exact opposite: Sweden S placing the economy above the public S health turned out to hurt both their public S health and their economy. It was clear.

Furthermore, all of the countries (China et cetera) that have the best bottomline numbers on Corona Virus took extremely socialist approaches, totally obsessing on protection of public health, and willing to pay any price (including severe risk of losing public support) to do so.

The finding is consistent throughout all of the bottom line results that I have analyzed in the data, and the same conclusion has been shown for as long A time as I have been analyzing the bottom line data.

That S always the way I approach any analytical problem, but usually there aren T enough bottom line data that start to be showing themselves so quickly as has happened in regard to Corona Virus ID 19. As soon as enough reliable data appeared in order for me to begin to form conclusions, I started publishing articles on them. And, by now, the conclusions are pretty clear, in my opinion. I’m always seeking to change my mind on everything, but I rarely do change my Mind, because I don T even begin to form A conclusion until there S already lots of solid and trustworthy data, and then I start to consider them. I don T speculate, on anything. I avoid speculation, as much as is possible. I have no opinion unless I have examined enough data and have verified enough of the data on my own (so that when I do start to theorize I am ignoring all of it that S fake) and am finally able to understand what the key variables actually are, which have been shaping those numbers. Only at that point do I even start to theorize. Then I constantly refine my theory, as A larger amount of reliable data have become available.

Anyway: libertarianism is A crock. That S clear.
