Pretty grim half year.

By the new year, my guess is that even France will have entered the 1 in every 1000 dead from covid club. Belgium seems bent to make a new club, 1 in every 500 dead.

of 300,000 dead --

if these were placed in standard caskets, and those caskets were lined up shoulder-to-shoulder along an interstate, and you cruised past them at 60 mph --

you'd be passing caskets for two hours, forty-one minutes.


(But at 80 mph, it would only take two hours)

Covid City recently passed Pittsburgh, Cincinnati and St. Louis, each with around 300,000 people.

Rumor is that Covid City will be applying for a NL Central team for the 2021 season.

It is currently the 63rd largest US city, ahead of St. Paul, and is on track to overtake Stockton later today or tomorrow.

I'd be interested to see a death count caused by lockdowns, but as with war, there seems to be little interest in collateral damage, because then we would question the narrative that everyone is at equal risk, and young and healthy need shutdown.

Economic damage kills people.

As Professor Gupta of Oxford said, the lockdowns are a luxury of the rich.

Talked to a mental health professional who said he's seeing many more people with anxiety and depression. He said they figure a 1.6% increase in suicides for every 1% increase in unemployment.

In addition, people afraid of covid have avoided healthcare, and many healthcare facilities were told to focus on covid (around here, didn't happen much). CEO's of Mayo Clinic and Cleveland Clinic wrote as many could die from undiagnosed/untreated cancer and heart disease as from covid.

Then you have the U.N. saying millions will die of starvation.

https://www.france24.com/en/20200728-coronavirus-linked-hunger-kills-10-000-children-per-month-says-un

quote

Some of the worst hunger still occurs in sub-Saharan Africa. In Sudan, 9.6 million people live from one meal to the next — a 65% increase from the same time last year.


"Lockdowns across Sudanese provinces, as around the world, have dried up work and incomes for millions. With inflation hitting 136 percent, prices for basic goods have more than tripled.

“It has never been easy but now we are starving, eating grass, weeds, just plants from the earth,” said Ibrahim Youssef, director of the Kalma camp for internally displaced people in war-ravaged south Darfur.

Adam Haroun, an official in the Krinding camp in west Darfur, recorded nine deaths linked with malnutrition, otherwise a rare occurrence, over the past two months — five newborns and four older adults, he said.

Before the pandemic and lockdown, the Abdullah family ate three meals a day, sometimes with bread, or they’d add butter to porridge. Now they are down to just one meal of “millet porridge” — water mixed with grain. Zakaria Yehia Abdullah, a farmer now at Krinding, said the hunger is showing “in my children’s faces.”

“I don’t have the basics I need to survive,” said the 67-year-old, who hasn’t worked the fields since April. “That means the 10 people counting on me can’t survive either.”

But then you'd have to have a death count for what would have happened without the lockdowns. What you want is the maximum calculated deaths for SIP procedures but also an intentionally suppressed estimate of how many lives have been saved thereby.

Apples versus apples, please.

Do you not realize that this analysis militates against your position? If people are dying because the ICU facilities are swamped, keeping economies open and letting even more people get sick and hospitalized will increase the collateral deaths.

That article does not criticize the SIP restrictions. It says that during the lockdowns, people must be sure to go see their doctors.

Again, this article does not support your view. Nowhere does it suggest that the lockdowns are a mistake. What it requests is more financial support from rich countries for poor countries during the lockdowns.

To make things worse, a few faster spreading variants have shown up. Happy New Year.

USA CRACKS THE TOP TEN! (US deaths: 401,797)

Top twenty-five countries all belong to the greater than 1 in 1000 of population dead from Covid Club.

Germany’s rise is truly breathtaking. From 21.29 (Dec 3rd) to today’s 59.08, and ten more dead bodies per 100,000 of pop. since my last post. Stunning.

I included Denmark’s numbers because they seem poised to breakout German fashion. For the longest time they hovered slightly higher than the other Scandinavian countries minus Sweden, about 14 or so. Well that has doubled very quickly, on the heels of their citizens growing restless with lockdowns.

And anyone still using Sweden as an example of anything but massive failure has lost the plot entirely. Sweden admits this publicly, to their credit. Their western neighbour, Norway, comes in at 9.88, and their neighbour to the right, Finland, comes in at 11.25. At 104 dead per 100,000 pop., Sweden would gladly trade for even Denmark’s 31.70.

The story of the “variants of concern (WHO)” is just getting started but will definitely accelerate fairly quickly. Alberta has at least 20 cases (18 of the UK, two of the South African).

The Netherlands death per 100,000 pop. on Sept 5th was 36.39, today it’s more than double, at 76.98. They are now trying to get ahead of the variants with measures not seen since WW2:

A note on the social effects of lockdowns:

Early on during Covid, it was wondered whether or not lockdowns would increase the suicide rate, among other social ills. So far, the data from Canada indicates that the suicide rate did NOT increase in 2020:

https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/calgary/suicides-alberta-bc-saskatchewan-canada-2020-no-increase-1.5902908

Snippet:


~~~~But Black pointed to recently released data out of Alberta, British Columbia and Saskatchewan that suggest suicide rates actually declined in 2020. He also noted coroners in Quebec and the chief medical examiner in Newfoundland and Labrador have recently said there were no increases in suicide in those provinces last year.

Data from Ontario and other provinces is still forthcoming, and Black cautions that counting suicide deaths always comes with some degree of uncertainty, as investigations into both cause of death and a person's intentions can take a long time.~~~~

From the article, here are Alberta’s(pop. about 4.4 million) suicide numbers for the past 5 years:

2016 - 609
2017 - 647
2018 - 630
2019 - 601*
2020 - 468*

*preliminary

Before cheering this on, there are many caveats and complications to consider. For example, “At the same time, there has been a significant rise in the number of overdose-related deaths during the pandemic.” Also, what are the numbers for domestic disturbances?

Keep your eye out for the Covid variants. That’s the story going forward. There are more than sixty known cases of the variants in Alberta as of today.

It would be interesting to compare population density with those numbers to see what part, if any, that plays in the numbers. Canada might be an exception being huge in land area but with most of its population close to the southern border with the US.

It is likely more complicated.
For the US, for example

The #1 state in per capita deaths is New Jersey who is also #1 in population density.
Rhode Island is #4 in deaths and #2 in density.
Massachusetts is #3 in both.
New York is #2 in deaths and #7 in density.

But ... Mississippi is #5 in deaths and #32 in density.
South Dakota is #6 in deaths, but #46 in density.
Arizona is #9 in deaths and #33 in density.
North Dakota is #10 in deaths and #47 in density.

Vermont is #51 in deaths (DC is included), but #31 in density.
Hawaii is #50 in deaths, but #13 in density.
Washington is #45 in deaths, but #25 in density.
Utah is #46 in deaths and #41 in density
Oregon is #47 in deaths and #39 in density.
Alaska is #49 in deaths and #50 in density.

So the correlation is not particularly strong. It should be noted that the average population density is an inexact measure of how crowded people are. Alaska for example has large areas with essentially no people. Utah and Oregon both have ~80% of the people living in a ~100-125 mile strip with large sparsely populated areas.
It also applies to countries. Sweden for example has a low overall population density, but most of its population lives in cities in the southern part of the country, with a large sparsely settled northern area. South Korea, Singapore, and Hong Kong on the other hand are very densely populated, but have low morality from Covid.

I suspect other factors are more strongly correlated such as when the pandemic hit (places where it started earlier likely have a higher mortality because at the beginning there was no real idea how to treat it), how aggressive each place was in implementing control measures and how compliant people were with those measures, access and quality of health care, etc.

Yes, that makes sense. But to get a decent idea of the correlation between density and deaths, we'd need to correct for policy as well as the factors you describe.

The Dakotas, for instance, are probably places where SIP regulations are lax. Wasn't one of them the site of a major biker rally? So if we wanted to get the correlations right we'd need to separate out the variables in order to make apples-to-apples comparisons. In that case density may prove highly correlated.

Is that correct?

In general, yes. The problem with correlating death rates with population density is primarily with how granular you analyze the data. As noted, using country wide data will be misleading because population density is seldom uniform. If there is a strong correlation between the two, then it would be more likely to show up in data by county or locality rather than by state or country. For example, if one looked at Utah, you have very urban counties like Salt Lake and Davis counties as well as very sparsely populated counties like Daggett and Wayne. If death rate and population density are strongly correlated, then Salt Lake and Davis counties would have much higher rates than rural counties - which is likely the case.

On the other hand, in Oregon,one of the highest rates is in rural Umatilla county. This is because they had a number of large outbreaks in agricultural processing plants which produces a relatively larger percentage of the population involved. That would suggest an inverse correlation between death rates and population density.

So one can correlate the two factors, but without considering other potentially involved factors, the results may be misleading. Looking at countries additional factors are important. Again looking at Sweden, the total population density is low (65/sq.mi.) according to the Wikipedia entry for Sweden. But from the same source 87% live in urban areas which constitute 1.5% of the land area. So to get an accurate correlation, you would need to separate the rates of urban areas and rural areas.

If one does that analysis and finds a strongly positive correlation between the two, there would still be the question of causation. Is the increased death rate due to population density per se, or is there some other factor(s) responsible for the difference in rates? Is it due to mask wearing, restrictions on social gathering or travel, medical care, demographics (age, occupation, ethnicity, etc.), socioeconomic factors, or something else?

So the causation may be there but isolating the variable(s) is so difficult that demonstrating the link is practically impossible.

TYhe variability in death rates from place to place is multifactorial. Population density is one variable, but not the only variable, and in many cases clearly not the most important variable.

Czech Republic provides cautionary tale as once-promising COVID-19 situation spirals out of control:

“From best to worst in just one year.

“Put another way, winning the opening battle is no guarantee of winning the war.

“This is the story of the Czech Republic and COVID-19. This was a country seemingly well prepared — a member of the European Union since 2004 after overthrowing its communist government in 1989, modestly rich and boasting a solid health-care system.”

I included Israel because they have been touted as a vaccine example to the world (that excludes the Palestinian population, though). And I included New Zealand for context for the whole.

You can all be encouraged that the World Economic Forum ("Davos") is right on top of this situation, and shows how the world will be a better place once we muddle through to the next phase of Covid response. This fast-paced 4-minute video depicts their understanding of the crisis, their vision for what follows, and what we can all do to participate (e.g. "stakeholder capitalism," among others).

Human, you might be encouraged that Israel is at the forefront of instituting vaccine passports: lacking one will "foreclose" a person from many, maybe most, public and commercial activities.

*not the "NY Times."

Edit: The video is not "about" Davos, but "BY" Davos.

To get into a Yankee game this year you need proof of vaccination. I’m assuming the younger popcorn and beer hawkers are vaccinated, too, then?

No worries, I trust that in the end the Profit Motive will sort it all out for the best.

Thanks for the video, caffiend. Just watched it.

Funny that the Davos crowd is now using “The Great Reset” as a phrase. The phrase and aspects of the video were deemed “conspiracy theory” nuttery not too long ago.

For caffiend:

The following article is helpful in distinguishing between the “Davos” of the 21/1/6 crowd and the “Davos” more in line with reality, or so it seems to me. (Harper’s is of the last of the great American Magazines that I can stomach):

First paragraph:

i. who is klaus schwab, and why are people saying such terrible things about him?

Klaus Schwab is the founder and current chairman of the World Economic Forum and author, with economist Thierry Malleret, of 2020’s enormously controversial book Covid-19: The Great Reset. The World Economic Forum sponsors an annual conference in Switzerland, popularly known as Davos, an invitation-only event attended by industrial and governmental leaders from around the world. In the words of political scientist Samuel P. Huntington, the attendees of this forum are “Davos Men,” a wealthy global elite who “have little need for national loyalty, view national boundaries as obstacles that thankfully are vanishing, and see national governments as residues from the past whose only useful function is to facilitate the elite’s global operations.”

That’s the hook in; what follows is important.

Cheers.

Long time top flight Belgium sinks to tenth place!

Top 43 countries are in the greater than 1/1000 dead from Covid club, the top 11 of these are in the greater than 1/500 Dead Club.

I included India. They are unfortunately poised to make a huge run for the top. We’ll see.
