Out of the 696 persons positive for the virus, 410 (11% of 3,711 and 58% of testing positive) had some symptoms, mostly very mild flu-like symptoms. Only 31 patients (0.8% of 3,711) required hospitalization. Up to the end of April 2020, only 14 patients died (0.3% of 3,711), most of them over 80 years old with several co-morbidities.
What is a COVID-19 case? In infectious diseases, a case is a patient with symptoms reporting to a doctor or a hospital. In newspeak, is a person testing positive for SARS-CoV-2 RNA in one of the over 100 molecular tests that received an Emergency Use Authorization from the FDA. It is well documented that 90% of the positive results in molecular tests may be false-positive.
My take is that all the COVID-19 from the name of the virus (it should be named by the place it was found) to the statistics is damned lying only. The cases are only positive test results that may be 90% false-positives. The people with symptoms are tested by a molecular test for only one virus despite the fact that several different viruses and bacteria may cause these symptoms. The death count is based again on molecular test results and maybe 90% false-positive.
The best term that is adequate for what we see is “Casedemic.”
