A complete list of all the countries in the world and their current Covid restrictions, from the New York Times.
In China or anywhere else.
So say the anti-vaxers in pooh-poohing the virus. But survival and recovery are two different things.
From NBC News: “The number of people worldwide who died because of the pandemic in its first two years may total more than 18 million, according to a sobering study released Thursday. That’s three times more than the reported global death toll from Covid-19, which crossed 6 million earlier this week.
“The research, published in the peer-reviewed journal The Lancet, analyzed data from 74 countries and 266 states and territories between Jan. 1, 2020, and Dec. 31, 2021. The scientists calculated excess deaths, a measure of how many more people died than would be expected had the pandemic not occurred. That means the estimate accounts both for people killed by Covid directly — confirmed and undiagnosed cases — as well as those whose deaths may be indirectly attributed to the pandemic.
“Examples in the latter category include people with serious medical conditions who were unable to seek timely care because hospitals were overburdened, people who died by suicide, and those who died due to a lack of access to essential services.”
One of the main talking points among the antivax crowd is that the vaccines were “experimental” and not fully approved by the FDA. Now they are (Pfizer and Moderna, not J&J). Somehow, I don’t see these folks rushing out to get the jab. After all, the FDA is part of the deep state and you can’t trust Dr. Fauci or anyone else in the government. It’s all about control, not science.
Even so, it seems that all is not harmony on the highest bench in the land.
Very different from how the ancients practiced it. For one thing, it doesn’t require mucking around with the entrails of a dead chicken.
