Still Another Day Without a Coronavirus Death

From the McHenry County Health Department:

“As of July 6, 2020, there have been 2145 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in McHenry County, 97 confirmed deaths and 2 probable deaths. 

The death(s) reported today: None.

Using either 97 or 99 as the number of deaths and 2,145 as the number of cases, it appears that the likelihood of dying of Covid-19 in McHenry County is 4.5-4.6%.

  1. I’m not great at math but I believe that 97 divided by 2,145 equals 4.5%

  2. The mortality rate is much lower than that when you consider all the asymptomatic people and people who only get mild illness who never get tested, but you can’t count what you can’t see.

  3. Now, I’m wondering what jb will do when his “current” order expires in two weeks or so.

    Will he try to extend it?

    If he does then what, as he is then violating a court order.

    I would think he should be held in contempt of court or something like that if he tries.

  4. McHenry Schools sending out surveys to poll parents on how draconian their covid protection measures should be.

    Very little about the emotional well being of children and a lot of about masks, social distancing, PPEs, remote learning.

    I’m not sure that they are going to be prepared for what’s to come.

  5. And if 81% of McHenry County deaths are from nursing homes / long-term care facilities (earlier story on this blog,) then only 18 non-nursing home deaths among 2145 cases = Chances of dying are only 0.8%.

    Bottom line: Don’t get put in a nursing home.

  6. Don’t get me started on the schools.

    As of my emails with them last week, they have absolutely no plans for the fall other than to wait to see what the state says.
