Statistics Comparing County Coronavirus — 29 Comments

  1. Everything will fall in place once a comprehensive analysis by zip code is published and peer reviewed. Sunshine blogger, did you FOI the USPS yet? Stay tuned…tic, tock, tic,tock, tic, tock, meeeeeeoooooooowwwwwwwwwwwwww…

  2. OK, so you still insist on taking these phony baloney numbers seriously? Then let’s take another look at that Italian report on those dying with (not of) Covid-19.

    The report tells us that the median age of those who have been pronounced dead with (not of) Covid-19 is 78. To put that number in perspective, the average life expectancy in Italy is 82.8.

    That means those who are dying with (not of) the disease are within years of reaching the average life expectancy (and, let’s not forget, they are also suffering in the vast majority of cases from at least two other diseases). I venture to say that a similar panic could be raised about just about any viral disease in circulation if it was being reported in the same way as this coronavirus is being reported.

    Since we’re committing thoughtcrimes here, let’s be blunt: “Elderly Patient With Multiple Complications Dies After Contracting Respiratory Illness” is NOT a news story. It’s a daily fact of life.

    But in fact, it is a news story. I have been keeping tabs on how the Canadian MSM have been covering the pandemic panic and saw a segment on one of the national news broadcasts about a woman whose 91-year old mother died in a nursing home. It was implied that this 91-year old woman’s life was tragically cut short by the coronavirus and, to make matters worse, her daughter was unable to hold a funeral or service for her mother because Canada is currently under lockdown. I don’t know if I have lost touch with reality or everyone else has, but let me reiterate: This is NOT a news sTory!

  3. Compassionate conservative, pro-life republikkklans can be very entertaining and creative with their twisting nonsense about this global pandemic not being a big deal. We remember just a few weeks ago these same sunshine republikkklan charlatans were tearing their clothes and roaring loudly because a government agency did not do enough to protect the life of one child. Now there are thousands of Americans dying because our six-times-bankrupt, sexual-assaulter-in-chief did not lift a finger to take this global pandemic seriously and my pro-life, Christian conservatives suddenly become, well, not-so-pro-life. We know these republikkklans too well…tic, tock, tic, tock, tic, tock, meeeeeeoooooooowwwwwwwwwwwwww…

  4. Near empty hospitals all over the country are gearing up for cases that hopefully will never materialize.

    Once again, elective surgeries are cancelled and non-essential workers at home.

    Nobody is disputing this fact.

    To use this is a perfect example of what some conspiracy people do when they extrapolate that to some grandiose theory of global
    takeover and NWO evil plan.

    This country is vast but if you look at a rural area in Europe and note a local clinic is empty do you say the hospital 50 miles away is participating in a hoax when it’s incapable of handling the dying coronavirus patients?

    Common sense should rule over world takeover attempts by “Dr. Evil.”

  5. With IDPH numbers still climbing, how is it that this graph shows it slowing in Illinois? What figures went into the creation of this graph? Who created it? Source?

  6. From the “Gateway Pundit” HUGE!

    From CDC Website: Hospitals to List COVID-19 as Cause of Death Even if It’s “Assumed to Have Caused Or Contributed to Death” – Lab Tests Not Required.

    Think of what this means!

  7. Our fatso governor was on a fake news program this morning blaming Trump for not having enough ventilators in our State. But it is he, and the governors before him – Rauner, Quinn, Blagovich, Ryan – who failed to plan and have resources in place. States and their hospitals were required to plan for and be READY for a possible future pandemic. This requirement was put in place after the 911 attack. (Incidentally, our current grossly obese BILLIONAIRE governor disconnected the toilets in one of his mansions to avoid paying his fair share of real estate taxes.)

  8. The main newspaper in our County has set up a fund to help it keep afloat given that it is losing advertisers during this Virus Pandemic.

    Donors and their amounts can be seen at the newspaper’s website.

  9. Have top US medical experts had RELIABLE and sufficient data to make timely recommendations to the President and the Task Force?

    Jan 2020 – Virus cases in US were from travelers to/from China.

    Jan 14, 2020 – WHO, the health Org not the rock group, put out info saying there was no human to human transmission of the Virus.

    Jan 29, 2020 – Trump establishes task force for Virus

    Jan 31, 2020 – Trump issues travel ban to/from China. The media and Democrats say Trump is Xenophobic.

    Feb 2020 – More Virus cases in US from travelers to/from China

    Feb 21, 2020 – First Virus case in CA of a person who did not travel to China

    Mar 2, 2020 – Approximately 100 Virus cases in US including passengers from cruise ship.

    Mar 3, 2020 – US Senate Health Committee has a hearing from TOP Virus/Pandemic Experts including CDC, NIH, Fauci, etc.. Twice in their testimony they said no “immediate” threat to US citizens. Quotes from their testimony:

    “The potential global public health threat posed by this virus is high, but right now, the immediate risk to most Americans is low.”

    “While CDC believes that the immediate risk of this new virus to the American public is low, CDC is preparing the nation’s healthcare system to respond to identification of individual cases and potential person-to-person transmission of COVID-19 in the community, at the same time ensuring the safety of its patients and Americans is low.”

    Mar 11, 2020 – 1,100+ Virus cases in the US.

    Mar 14, 2020 – 2700+ Virus cases in the US.

    March 19 – 154 deaths in the US of which 94 were in Washington State and 35 in a nursing home there.

    Mar 20, 2020 – 19,000 cases, 249 deaths

    Mar 22, 2020 – 32,000 cases in the US.

    So, on March 3rd, no “immediate” threat to US citizens was stated by top US medical experts. Were our best health experts as knowledgeable and timely as possible in giving advice and guidance to the President?

  10. Article below states McHenry County has 122 cases with 3 deaths.

    This indicates verified infection rate of ( using 2017 census population 309122):
    122/309122= 0.000394666

    Which is 39.46 cases per 100,000 population

    3 deaths in over 300,000 population is a little less than 1 per 100,000 population.

  11. Dear Susan,

    Please advise as to when my virus risk, exceeds the 0.00833 percent chance of my being struck by lightning, so that I can make preparations to flee to the N.M. Central Desert.

    Thanks in advance.

  12. ABC News Chief White House Correspondent, Jonathon Karl, is in the White House Press Room every day for the Virus updates from the President and the Virus Task force.

    On This Week today, April 5, 2020, George Stephanopolous asked Jonathon if the President had a tug of war with his science advisors nearly every day. Jonathon said that it was remarkable that the President “has actually listened to and taken the advice of the medical experts on the big decision points”.

  13. DJ, I believe the low rate reflects lack of testing/verification.

    Many people may have already had it and recovered, or, distancing measures are effective and the time period for catching the virus are extruded.

  14. I’ve lived more of my life in 3rd world countries than America.

    I am profoundly Xenophobic.

    They end up destroying what they could never create…. or even maintain.

    That’s why Jack Franks’ recent comment that we need more aliens in places like Marengo and Hebron ‘to make up for declining births’ is culturally suicidal.

    There mere presence displaced Americans.

    People like Angel must be fought.

    He represents Death, Chaos, Disorder, Filth, Pestilence and Hate.

    Just like his Master, the Devil.

  15. Just amazing how all the march in lockstep people in here keep quoting the fake news. Mainstream media was never your friend. They have hoodwinked you for decades. Haven’t you had enough of their lies, yet? Remember you are sitting in your darkened houses because you bought their lies. Your lives will never ever be the same and yet you keep going back to the trough. Just mind-blowing that Operation Mockingbird was so successful so easily. Kind of expect it from Dala/Denise not to be able to tell fake from real, but the rest of you really freak me out.

  16. Ah! Thank you Susan.

    Now as penance for my ‘understating this virus thingy’ snark.

    Could one of the Blog’s resident nitwits, send me one of their official Chinese ‘Dr. Li Wenliang’ “Unfounded and Illegal Rumors” denunciation statements, so that I may sign and be on my way?

  17. “I am profoundly Xenophobic…People like Angel must be fought. He represents Death, Chaos, Disorder, Filth, Pestilence and Hate. Just like his Master, the Devil”. Who said compassionate conservative republikkklans on this sunshine blog were about anything but the love of Jesus Christ? Stay tuned…tic, tock, tic, tock, tic, tock, hug your neighbor, tic, tock, tic, tock, tic, tock, meeeeeeoooooooowwwwwwwwwwwwww…

  18. Angel, I do believe Jesus took a whip once and used it, with full force, on hypocrites like you.

    You are a pathetic little troll.

    Trolls get driven out of society and live under bridges.


  19. Little fancy ‘nancy’ exactly what did Bred write that ain’t true?


    Move along Nancy to the FEMA vaccination center to get chipped.

  20. Trump administration waited 2 months before bolstering medical supplies for coronavirus pandemic, re
    Source: Chicago Tribune

    As the first alarms sounded in early January that an outbreak of a novel coronavirus in China might ignite a global pandemic, the Trump administration squandered nearly two months that could have been used to bolster the federal stockpile of critically needed medical supplies and equipment.

    A review of federal purchasing contracts by The Associated Press shows federal agencies largely waited until mid-March to begin placing bulk orders of N95 respirator masks, mechanical ventilators and other equipment needed by front-line health care workers.

    By that time, hospitals in several states were treating thousands of infected patients without adequate equipment and were pleading for shipments from the Strategic National Stockpile. That federal cache of supplies was created more than 20 years ago to help bridge gaps in the medical and pharmaceutical supply chains during a national emergency.

  21. What were the moronic Democrats in the U.S. House and Senate doing in January, early February? Promoting the hoax impeachment. They wanted more and more witnesses and hearings which would have misdirected more of their attention from the Chinese Virus. These would have gone on through February and later. The Republican Senate leadership rejected the Democrats’ insatiable desire to run impeachment hearings maybe until March and called for 2 votes on Feb 5th which ended the impeachment farce.

    One month later on March 3rd, top medical experts testified before the U.S. Senate that there was no immediate threat to Americans from the Virus.

  22. Per website, at 7 PM, April 5, 2020

    The number of virus cases in McHenry County Is 133, or 0.218 per square mile.,
    The number of virus cases in Chicago is 4614 and is 19.72 per square mile.

    For those familiar with Chicago, that is 19.72 cases in a typical square mile area such as
    bounded by streets Pulaski, Belmont, Cicero and Irving Park. Or such as Madison, Austin,
    Chicago and Laramie.
