Over the past couple of months I’ve asked a quiet a few friends around the world a simple question.
“In most western countries (Eg. USA, Canada) among people who died of covid, what percent were below 50 years old?”
Worded differently, how many “non near-retirement” age people are among the “officially reported covid-dead” according to the government agencies of those listed countries?
The answers I got back? 40%, 20%, and only one person said 10%.
The real answer (as of June 24th 2022). is 2% (Canada), 4% (USA). Most people were off by 10x. Even I thought it was at least 10% before I dove into the data.
Go back to the question, notice that I define my question very specifically there’s no opinions it’s a very specific question with a very specific answer. I’m not asking you to believe my data set or argue about if it’s “because of covid” or just “with covid” whatever, I’m asking a simple question.
What is the reported “official” numbers by age, why do I ask that question? To show the gap between people’s perception and reality even on that tiny aspect. No conspiracy theories needed.
I’ve been digitally silent for most of the past 12 months cause I felt that most people lost grasp of reality and most conversations on covid
