Just the same reason that Trump is going through Inspectors General like they were Big Macs.
That is because Canada flattened the curve. There is not a steady increase in fatalities according to the charts I see, unless you are talking actual deaths, which can only increase. The death rate in Canada is flat, but still below most countries that have seen big decreases. That is simply because the other countries had such huge maximum death rates.Weekly Death Toll

Once again a decline in overall death figures week on week. European regions are generally improving pretty well, America showing some limited progress, we will see how the easing of restrictions impacts these areas. India has steady increase in fatalities as does Canada and Russia but places like Ecuador, Mexico and Brazil show big increases in cases and death figures.
Ventilators have probably killed much more people than they saved though. In order to save a person with a ventilator you need someone who is strong enough to survive this very invasive operation but at the same time has developed severe symptoms that made this procedure necessary; which has obviously happened, but only very rarely. On the other hand, most people put onto ventilators (i.e. with severe symptoms) are the ones with severe comorbidities who very rarely survive this operation (that's why the percentage of people surviving after being put onto ventilators with COVID is much lower than "normal") and if they do they often end up heavily disabled. I read from a palliative doctor that most people in carehomes that were asked (doesn't happen too often because ventilation earns hospitals plenty of money) even rejected this procedure (that's what I'd do as well).China, the source of outbreak and king of discretion and censorship, apparently reports 3,000 less deaths than ventilator heaven Germany. They are full of shite, sorry.
that's exactly my point anyway, deviation in case fatality rate in comparison to countries with excessive testing like the arab emirates are most likely because of insufficient testing, regardless if the testing at such figures might be a tricky task.Okay, at least we have an explanation now why your evaluation is so far from reality. :lol:
In fact I was rather conservative here with my interval to definitely get it right. It's mostly common sense when you have around 50 % of asymptomatic carriers and also a large portion of people with pretty mild symptoms that the majority probably won't relate to COVID. But if you are obsessive with numbers, the New York Antibody Study for instance delivered a result around 10 times as high as the official count (20 % to 2 % IIRC). Heinsberg Germany 5 times as high I think.
Youre correct actually my mistake I hadn't realised the rate was more or less linear for a while nowThat is because Canada flattened the curve. There is not a steady increase in fatalities according to the charts I see, unless you are talking actual deaths, which can only increase. The death rate in Canada is flat, but still below most countries that have seen big decreases. That is simply because the other countries had such huge maximum death rates.
This is absolutely disgraceful from the BBC, not surprised by it at all though. One of the reasons why I don't watch that Tory bias crap.shameful reporting from the BBC re Scottish PM.
It is the new Trump philosophy.Manipulation of data not just in China?
Researchers fear a wave of data censorship after the manager of Florida's COVID-19 dashboard is removed from her post.www.usatoday.com
Get real, mate. Trump and Johnson fine but the rest of them? There are no real free elections in Russia, Belarus and Brazil and Putin who has been in power for 20 years has just enforced the amendment which will allow him to prolong his rule by another 4 years after 2024.So here is some shocking conclusion. Looks like all classic power hungry "alpha male", who shits on scientific facts and will do anything to cash it some money, all fail spectacularely in handling the corona crisis.
No word needs to be said about Trump.
But Bolsonaro from Brasil really trying hard to outdumb Trump. Death count per day over 1'000.
Then there is Boris Johnson. Then there is Vladimir Putin. That nutcase in Belarus. They all fucked up, and the virus is raging in their countries.
You know what, I may have an idea. Why dont you just FUCKING don't vote for this utter morons in the future?
That is true, of course.Get real, mate. Trump and Johnson fine but the rest of them? There are no real free elections in Russia, Belarus and Brazil and Putin who has been in power for 20 years has just enforced the amendment which will allow him to prolong his rule by another 4 years after 2024.
