Once again, while the U.S. cases are on the rise, those cases continue to be less and less deadly:

No wonder it's on the rise again. The authorities are letting several thousand a day, untested, cross into this area of SW Tx.

Yet we Americans have been threatened with more mask mandates and lockdowns.

On the national news tonight they are starting to say what common sense was telling me
all along. My two shots may still let me come down with Covid which could make or allow
me to transmit it to someone else.
Now some new thoughts:
This approach to Covid vaccine will not protect us like days of old
when getting a weakened or killed virus would have us build an immunity
to a disease and we would become non-infectious to others. This may or may
not be true but I’m thinking the pharmaceutical industry planned it this way.
There will never become a time that we become non-infectious to others unless
we actually get sick with Covid and build an immunity. But making us resistant
to Covid but still carriers guarantees that big pharmaceutical sell more shots.
Again this may or may not be true but then if there is more money in treatment
where is the inducement to follow a tried and proven pathway to a cure?

Once again, it's important to look at deaths as well as cases.

Look at the deaths/cases during the early days of the pandemic and compare it to the deaths/cases in recent days.

The cases are over 3 times higher, but the deaths are less than a third of what they were. This means that the virus is about one tenth as deadly to our current population as it was in the early stages to that population. It's important to remember that both the virus and our population have changed. We now have high levels of both natural and vaccinated immunity. We have also already lost many of those who were most at risk of death.

At that web site, you can click on the graphs to get daily cases and deaths. I pulled out the peaks of those curves from the spring of 2020 and the fall of 2021.

Spring of 2020: 2261 Deaths, 30581 Cases
    That gives a deaths/cases ratio of 7.393% in the spring of 2020.

Fall of 2021: 1613 Deaths, 163256 Cases
    That gives a deaths/cases ratio of 0.988% in the fall of 2021.


That means the pandemic is about 7.48 times less deadly today than it was in the spring of 2020.
