US Coronavirus Deaths Pass 20,000, Hospitalizations Declining

We’re seeing the highest levels of daily deaths so far.

Total US coronavirus deaths reached 20,000 on Saturday, according to figures from John Hopkins University. The latest casualty counts place the United States in first place in terms of casualties by country, surpassing those of Italy.

The 2,074 Americans that died of the novel disease on Friday is the most in any single day since the beginning of the pandemic in the country. Dr. Chris Murray of the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation at the University of Washington is predicting that the death totals of Friday and Saturday will end up at the apex of daily deaths in the country, suggesting that daily deaths will slowly decrease from the large figure. Murray is also predicting that roughly 61,000 Americans will die of the Chinese coronavirus by August, basing his estimate on a model that is updated with coronavirus data on a daily basis.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo described a slight decrease in daily deaths from Wednesday to Friday, declining from 799 to 783 respectively. On a more positive note, he’s described the daily number of hospitalizations occurring in the state’s medical system due to the disease as declining, suggesting that New York is indeed ‘flattening the curve.’ City workers were seen burying bodies in mass graves at Hart Island, a facility that has long been used to bury unclaimed bodies.

The number of hospitalizations appears to have hit an apex, and the apex appears to be a plateau,” said Cuomo of daily hospitalizations. “Still people getting infected, still people going into the hospital, but again, a lower rate of increase.

Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds Refuses to Implement Widespread Mask Mandates and Bar Closures Over Newest COVID-19 Panic

Another Republican governor with courage.

Published

on

Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds (R) is refusing to implement Draconian mask mandates and bar closures despite recent reports that cases are surging throughout the state.

According to a report in The Guardian, cases of COVID-19 are spiking throughout Iowa. Ames and Iowa City, two college towns, are reportedly being hit hard due to young people refusing to live their lives in fear.

“Community transmission continues to be high in rural and urban counties across Iowa, with increasing transmission in the major university towns,” a fear-mongering report from the White House coronavirus task force warned. “Mask mandates across the state must be in place to decrease transmission.”

Reynolds thus far is not bucking to political pressure that would lock down the state, crippling small businesses and making a mockery of the Bill of Rights and Constitution. She has only closed bars in six counties throughout the state while just “strongly encouraging” people to wear masks, arguing that they are “not a silver bullet.”

“I still believe it’s up to the governors in the various states to make those decisions,” Reynolds said in her refusal to let the feds usurp her authority.

Reynolds believes that it is “social activity among young adults” that is causing the virus to spread more quickly. Young people are the least likely to die from COVID-19, with new figures released by the CDC indicating that the vast majority of people who died from the virus had serious comorbidities. The facts, however, are not stopping the fear cultists from arguing for another shutdown.

“Our numbers are clearly terrifying,” said University of Iowa associate professor Naomi Greyser to CNN. “They’re really scary and my students are scared.” Greyser and other academics hope to get paid by the taxpayer for not doing their jobs this school year because of COVID-19.

Republican U.S. Sen. Joni Ernst of Iowa is casting doubt on the numbers that are being reported by medical professionals.

“These healthcare providers and others are reimbursed at a higher rate if Covid is tied to it, so what do you think they’re doing?” Ernst said.

Although the Iowa Medical Society called Ernst’s comments “incredibly disappointing,” there have been many reports of case numbers being exaggerated or falsified throughout the country, as Big League Politics has noted:

Many states are inflating their reports of COVID-19 cases by counting positive antibody tests among those who have the illness, according to a report from Nicole Saphier, M.D…

This has reportedly resulted in people being counted twice due to testing positive for COVID-19 and then testing positive for having antibodies.

Making the situation even more of a cluster, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have claimed that antibody tests are wrong at least half of the time.

“Serologic test results should not be used to make decisions about grouping persons residing in or being admitted to congregate settings, such as schools, dormitories, or correctional facilities,” the CDC wrote in their guidelines.

“Serologic test results should not be used to make decisions about returning persons to the workplace,” they continued.

“In most of the country, including areas that have been heavily impacted, the prevalence of SARS-CoV-2 antibody is expected to be low, ranging from less than 5% to 25%, so that testing at this point might result in relatively more false positive results and fewer false-negative results,” the CDC determined.

The Republicans of Iowa are showing the backbone that is needed to prevented America from permanently losing all of her liberties due to COVID-19 mass hysteria.
