(Tea Party PAC) – The mainstream media has shifted their narrative right back to coronavirus fear-mongering after only a brief pause to praise the densely attended widespread protests and riots that broke out across the country after the death of George Floyd.
Isn’t it amazing that this novel, Wuhan-based virus is so intelligence that it knows the difference between a church and a left-wing demonstration?
Now that it suits their narrative, of course, the left is hyping up the increasing number of cases of the virus as we head into summer.
There’s only one problem, however.
They’re totally ignoring the plummeting death rate.
It turns out that what many of us were saying all long turned out to be true: the virus is only deadly to those who are at an increased risk due to age or preexisting health conditions, and these are the people who need to be kept safe.
The general public, meanwhile, is not only largely safe, but they need to get back out there and increase herd immunity.
And that’s precisely what appears to be happening.
Just the News reports that “data from the Massachusetts Department of Public Health suggests that of the 8,132 people the state has lost to the novel coronavirus, 5,087 were above the age of 80, and 5,141 occurred in long-term care facilities.”
Massachusetts was one the state’s hit especially hard by the spread of the disease through nursing homes. The number of elder-care facilities in the state that reported at least one probably or confirmed case of coronavirus is 369, and nearly 23,500 residents and healthcare workers at these facilities have been diagnosed with the virus since March.
The state health department is also tracking the sex, age, county, and race/ethnicity of coronavirus victims.
The state’s public data shows that the average age of death from the virus is 82, and, of those deaths that were thoroughly investigated, which is about half of them so far, 98% of victims had underlying conditions.
About 600 more men than women have succumbed to the disease in Massachusetts, and 54% of victims had been hospitalized previously.
On Thursday this week. Massachusetts was the only state in any country to report zero deaths from the virus.
While 35 states across the country have seen their number of cases increase, in Massachusetts, the case and death rate are continuously dropping, however.
The state has confirmed 109,388 cases since the beginning of the pandemic.
