Tennessee's Virus Numbers

Tuesday, July 7, 2020

Can someone please explain to me how human beings in Tennessee are so much more resistant to the smartest virus that has ever been invented or is it that our healthcare is that much better or are numbers being massaged?

 

As we crunch numbers provided by the CDC and cumulative numbers from The Atlantic the death rate in Tennessee is at .0125 percent of positive results as to compared to the overall rate of .0419 percent for the United States.

 

We should really be proud if we compare ourselves to New York whose death rate is at .0625 percent of positive results.

 

 

I know we are hearing “test, test, test”  but with more testing the Pro Virus boat develops more holes and, to be honest, I hope this ship begins to sink faster than the Titanic.

 

Again I say wake up.
