Coronavirus Survival Rate Near 100% for Most Americans

Videos by OutKick

Friday, the CDC released eye-opening coronavirus numbers. The data chart breaks down the COVID-19 survival rate by age groups. Take a look:

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:

“For 6% of the deaths, COVID-19 was the only cause mentioned. For deaths with conditions or causes in addition to COVID-19, on average, there were 2.6 additional conditions or causes per death.”

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:

  1. Yep but most are still running that 200k death number even on the Fox website its like they didn’t hear what the CDC said lets start publishing the correct death count actually less than the flu.

  2. Fauchi in that pic looks pissed after all the disinformation he has spouted dude always negative like he wants this to hang around forever hasn’t practiced real medicine in over 40 years what a fraud.

  3. 2.6 average additional causes of death is higher than most people realize. It seems like a low number, but the lowest someone could have is zero with no upper limit. It’s not like average temperature in winter that could have negative or below zero data points to bring down the average. This average is similar to the average number of kids in a family. Yeah, some have zero, most have 1-3, but we all know someone with seven or eight.

  4. You guys with your facts and sense making. When are you going to understand the important driver in decision making is emotion and passion! Get on board the “Decision making by Toddler mentality” train already! If I don’t like it, tear it up! Throw a fit! It works. Ask LeBron, ESPN, Nancy Pelosi, et al. They owe their brand to this ideology. If a few innocent lives are lost in the process, hey that is the price ya gotta pay, right? I mean we all know BLM and defund the police movement causes more preventable black deaths than the police ever could, but turning those fools on themselves does all the work. Don’t have to lift a finger. And anyone who dares suggest otherwise will be a pariah in 15 minutes. You don’t think Chalres Barkley is not gonna catch heat this weekend?? Hell, he will be apologizing before the end of today and teaming up with Michael Jordon to push their new race team to battle “systemic racism”. THANK YOU Social media!
