Kansas Right-Wing Think Tank Shares Moment Of Doubt On Deadly Coronavirus

Locals possibly shouldn't take their political and health advice from the same place . . . Still, the perspective deserves debate:

COVID mortality rate just 1% aside from nursing homes

As of Friday, May 8, the Kansas Department of Health & Environment (KDHE) said 85 of the state's 152 COVID deaths occurred in nursing homes. With a total of 540 cases reported in 22 long-term care facilities, that means the COVID mortality rate aside from nursing homes is just 1.1% (67 deaths from 5,961 cases).

Out of 7 billion 4 million have contracted the virus that give you .00057% chance of getting the virus.

No health advice offered in the story...just reporting facts from KS Dept of Health that local media ignores. We inform while others scare.

Concentrate your most vulnerable in small warehouses and then act surprised when pandemic numbers soar there - Typical!

Mortality rates only increase if the hospitals cant keep up with the patients. The lockdown was to give hospitals time to handle the unique challenges that come with treating the virus. This includes having ventilators for those that couldn't oxygenate their blood.

Now that terrorists know how to shut down our economy, the next virus, which will be man made, will make this one look like a cold. Get ready buttercups!

^^This one is man-made.
Only the terrorists are not wearing rags on their head and flying around on magic carpets.
The terrorists are our biggest trading partner.

Wrong, that was false information from the start. The lower the curve crap started when it was completely clear that their dread numbers weren't adding up. Had to think of something else to keep the stupid terrified. Ventilators were never going to be in short supply. NY was using that bs as a prog attack. This whole charade has been nothing but a load of crap from the beginning.

Now it appears that the bulk of the new infections are being passed from family member to another while under the same roof. So much for that whole shelter in place for your safety schick...
