The Delta variant of the Covid-19 pandemic is much less deadly. Time to go back to normal life.

U.S. COVID-19 deaths 2020-21 by age (year)

– 30% of all deaths occurred over the age of 85

– 80% of all deaths occurred over the age of 65

– Only 15% of the U.S. population is over the age of 65

0.02% of all deaths occurred under the age of 2, too young to get vaccine

0.05% of all deaths occurred between the ages of 2 and 18, school age

0.15% of all deaths occurred between the ages of 19 and 25, college age

3.6% of all deaths occurred between the ages of 26 and 45

(Source: CDC – just updated: https://data.cdc.gov/NCHS/AH-Provisional-COVID-19-Death-Counts-by-Age-in-Yea/3apk-4u4f )

From this CDC data I can safely conclude that it makes no sense to vaccinate school children or even college students unless they are in a high risk category and still able to take the vaccine. Even people 26 to 45 year olds should only take the vaccine if in a high risk group. For people 46 to 65 year olds the odds are that vaccine helps, and for people over 65 it should be given to all that can still take the vaccine.

The so called delta variant of Covid-19 is much more contagious, but ear loop masks are nearly useless to stop the spread. It is also much less deadly, and the European experience proves it. This is the chart from United Kingdom:

Great Britain data Feb 2020 to July 30 2021

We can see from this chart that the first wave of Covid-19 was eight times as deadly as the second wave. Now the third wave, the Delta virus wave is one tenth as deadly as the second wave. United Kingdom has one of the highest vaccination rates in Europe:

How does this compare with new Covid Cases for the least vaccinated countries in Europe?

This is interesting. The countries with the least number people vaccinated shows no third wave in Coronavirus cases. It seems mostly confined to vaccinated people. The good thing is, that the vaccinated people get a very mild case, more like the common cold.

Meanwhile, the Chinese Communist Party Military in Wuhan is continuing their gain of function research in the Wuhan Lab, or else they would have welcomed an inspection of the lab to make certain this will never happen again. They have by no means developed the most efficient bio-weapon yet, so it behooves us to work to find alternate cures to what may yet come. So far HydroxyChloroQuine has shown great promise, if taken early in conjunction with Zinc (and Vitamin D) has been proven effective in countries too poor to use patent medicines. Even though they have a much inferior health system, they showed initially a much lower death rate. Now Ivermectin seems to be even more effective both as a prophylactic or as an early treatment. Remdisivir is approved and shoren hospital stays. Israel is trying out many new medicines, trying to stay ahead in this bio-warfare. What is our NIH and CDC doing? By the way, thanks for the data.
