U.S. Cases of Coronavirus on 16 Jun 2020 Resemble Russian Roulette
Ever had a rude awakening? I did today. The quality website Johns Hopkins University Coronavirus Resource Center reports on confirmed cases of Covid-19 throughout the world on a daily basis. Today is 16 Jun 2020.
Johns-Hopkins Coronavirus Resource Center 6-16-2020 U.S.
Total Confirmed Cases to Date 2,114,026
Deaths to Date 116,127
Recoveries thus far 576,334
Do the Math
Total cases that have either died or recovered to date: 116,127 + 576,134 = 692.461
The percentage of these cases that have died is: (116,127 / 692,461) x 100% 16.77%
The fraction 1/6 is equivalent to 16.67%
So almost exactly, 1 in 6 of confirmed U.S. cases with a definite outcome have died thus far!
Now imagine taking an empty six-shooter and put one bullet in it. Then, as you take the gun and aim it sequentially at 6 people, you pull the trigger each time.
Sound like Russian Roulette?
