Friday, the CDC released eye-opening coronavirus numbers. The data chart breaks down the COVID-19 survival rate by age groups. Take a look:
COVID-19 SURVIVAL RATES (per CDC):
Ages 0-19: 99.997%
Ages 20-49: 99.98%
Ages 50-69: 99.5%
Ages 70+: 94.6%

There is overwhelmingly positive news. For a global pandemic, it is nearly best-case scenario. Per the CDC’s numbers, those under 70-years-of-age have close to a 0% chance of dying from the infection.
Earlier in the month, Clay Travis discussed the virus’ death-rate:
This illuminates what I have been saying for a long time, there’s a big difference between dying WITH COVID and dying FROM COVID.
94% of people are dying with covid, per the CDC, not because of it. In fact, not only are people dying with it, they are dying with covid and an average of 2.6 additional conditions or causes of death.
This would mean roughly 10,000 deaths are directly attributable to covid alone.
Because right now if you have terminal lung cancer, kidney and liver failure and covid, you are counted as a covid death.
Now, this doesn’t mean covid can’t be dangerous, it can. But it’s almost exclusively dangerous among those with extremely ill health, that is multiple serious co-morbidities, or extremely advanced age.
The CDC’s chart caused reactions of all kinds:

Can’t have a wedding. Can’t play football. Can’t go to the gym. Can’t open your restaurant. Can’t go to church. https://t.co/UrPmMQW5gP
