The REAL Facts (Debunking SIX Myths)
We are constantly updating this report on our website about the most dangerous SIX coronavirus myths as the facts continue to be uncovered. Here''s the
first one, which is the most important...
MYTH #1: THE FATALITY RATE
Don't believe the media, the 2020 coronavirus (COVID-19) does not appear to be nearly as deadly as it's portrayed to be - and it's nowhere near the fatality of SARS or MERS. Yes, elderly, immune-compromised people are dying. In fact, "a China study shows that for coronavirus patients aged 70 to 79 the death rate more than triples. For those older than 80 it's more than six times as
But, it's nothing for the vast majority of people to go hysterical about.
Here's what the New England Journal of Medicine says:
- On the basis of a case definition requiring a diagnosis of pneumonia, the currently reported case fatality rate is approximately 2%.
- In another article in the Journal, Guan et al. report mortality of 1.4% among 1099 patients with laboratory-confirmed Covid-19; these patients had a wide spectrum of disease severity.
- If one assumes that the number of asymptomatic or minimally symptomatic cases is several times as high as the number of reported cases, the case fatality rate may be considerably less than 1%.
- This suggests that the overall clinical consequences of Covid-19 may ultimately be more akin to those of a severe seasonal influenza (which has a case fatality rate of approximately 0.1%) or a pandemic influenza (similar to those in 1957 and 1968) rather than a disease similar to SARS or MERS, which have had case fatality rates of 9 to 10% and 36%,
respectively. ~ New England Journal of Medicine
To put things into perspective, global deaths from coronavirus are less than 50% of the annual pedestrian deaths within just the U.S., and are far less than 298,000-646,000 annual deaths worldwide due to the flu. (Dept of Transportation, Lancet)
According to a top Chinese health official, Liang Wannian, the fatality rate is China has been between 3-4%.
- Though, this is only for extreme concentrations of people infected.
- Outside of Wuhan - the city at the epicenter of the outbreak, the death rate in China has been about 0.7% - closer to the flu virus. (NPR)
NRP reports that "a study released by China's Center for Disease Control last month, found that if you factor out all the data from Hubei province, where Wuhan is located, the fatality rate in the rest of China drops to 0.4%. (NPR)
It's important to note that the death rate has steadily dropped as the disease spreads, and the earliest, most severe cases made COVID-19 look like a much fatal that it really is.
According to the China CDC study, among patients whose symptoms started between Jan. 1 and Jan. 10 the death rate was 15.6 percent. But it was just 0.8 percent among those who didn't get sick until Feb. 1 to Feb. 11. (NPR)
We should expect this pattern of progressively dropping death rates in other countries as well.
Treat It Like the Flu
Bottom line: treat coronavirus like the flu.
- Build your immune system.
- Keep your hands and home clean of environmental toxins.
- And, most importantly, don''t freak out.
Thankfully, there is no vaccine (yet), so there''s no pressure from your employer to get a shot. :)
And, NO, don''t believe the online chatter, oregano oil will NOT kill this strain in 20 seconds. I''m sure essential oils will help, but this thing is so NEW, no research has been done in it. That''s why it is referred to as a "novel" coronavirus. Novel meaning, "new."
NOTE: there is no known cure for this coronavirus strain.
It''s like the new flu strain that goes around every year - and that''s why flu shots will NEVER all the time, because flu vaccine manufacturers don''t have a crystal ball to see what type of flu to target.
Like every virus, the coronavirus will mutate and evolve and become something else - so when the vaccine comes out - it will be useless because it will only be (potentially) effective against the CURRENT outbreak. Not a future one.
That''s why preventing viruses is ONLY possible by building up your immune system. Your #1 defense against infection.
This is also why most people dying are older, sick, immune-compromised. Just like the flu.
The main concern we should have is this irrational fear media has placed in people across the globe. This is BIG news for them and they are making TONS of money as their ratings skyrocket - advertisers are loving this.
You''ll want to be prepared with the things that we''ll need if they quarantine a street, neighborhood, your church, school or city. Citizens across all countries are hoarding toilet paper and bottled water and the government is intervening. Schools and public events are closing at alarming rates.
It''s this type of craziness that we don''t want happening in your community.
The world is in chaos over this and it is 100% based on irrational (media-driven) fear.
