Covid-19 hysteria is the greatest propaganda success story in history. Early on, anyone who suggested the disease was comparable to a severe flu was shouted down and denounced. But now we are learning that Covid-19’s infection fatality rate (IFR) is indeed comparable to the flu:
- Ages 60–69, fatality rate 0.501 percent, survival rate 99.499 percent
- Ages 50–59, fatality rate 0.129 percent, survival rate 99.871 percent
- Ages 40–49, fatality rate 0.035 percent survival rate 99.965 percent
- Ages 30–39, fatality rate 0.011 percent, survival rate 99.989 percent
- Ages 20–29, fatality rate 0.003 percent, survival rate 99.997 percent
- Ages 0–19, fatality rate 0.0003 percent, survival rate 99.9997 percent
This is a start. As our hindsight matures, I expect we will discover much more about Covid and its vaccines that we wildly misunderstood.
