Hey, Cider, what killed them?
« on: October 29, 2020, 06:36:59 am »
The latest numbers from the CDC reveal hospitals have been counting patients who died from serious preexisting conditions as COVID-19 deaths. One America?s Pearson Sharp has more, as the CDC counts over 51-thousand patients who actually died from heart attacks, as opposed to the coronavirus.

PS. Not satire, with link to source....

How Does this Epidemic compare to some of the following? 

No satire here either.

The Black Death traveled from Asia to Europe, leaving devastation in its wake. Some estimates suggest that it wiped out over half of Europe's population.

Cocoliztli epidemic:
The infection that caused the cocoliztli epidemic was a form of viral hemorrhagic fever that killed 15 million inhabitants of Mexico and Central America.

Great Plague of London:
By the time the plague ended, about 100,000 people, including 15% of the population of London, had died. But this was not the end of that city's suffering. On Sept. 2, 1666, the Great Fire of London started, lasting for four days and burning down a large portion of the city.

Spanish Flu: 1918-1920
An estimated 500 million people from the South Seas to the North Pole fell victim to Spanish Flu. One-fifth of those died

Asian Flu: 1957-1958
The total death toll was more than 1.1 million worldwide, with 116,000 deaths occurring in the United States.

AIDS pandemic
AIDS has claimed an estimated 35 million

H1N1 Swine Flu pandemic: 2009-2010
The 2009 swine flu pandemic was caused by a new strain of H1N1 that originated in Mexico in the spring of 2009 before spreading to the rest of the world. In one year, the virus infected as many as 1.4 billion people across the globe and killed between 151,700 and 575,400 people, according to the CDC.
For this people's heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.

See the thread below this one! :wink: :cheesy: :cheesy:
Unfortunately, the threads jumped, at the time it was "The Buffoon in the Whitehouse" :cheesy:
