    Of course silence. The strong arm tactics have been used by globalists ie democrats to gain more power. If you weaken everyone else except yourself you benefit at the expense of everyone else.

    I clicked on the link provided in the tweet by Adam Creighton and looked for the CDC's publishing of the survival rate and did not see it.

    Could you please show me on the CDC's website where they published these new survival rate numbers?

    Probably not. The CDC doesn't seem to list survival but rather fatality.

    It appears they took the Infection Fatality Ratios from Scenario 5 (Current Best Estimate) in Table 1 (see below), subtracted them from 1.0 then converted to %.

    Disease Severity
    • Infection Fatality Ratio (IFR): The number of individuals who die of the disease among all infected individuals (symptomatic and asymptomatic). This parameter is not necessarily equivalent to the number of reported deaths per reported case because many cases and deaths are never confirmed to be COVID-19, and there is a lag in time between when people are infected and when they die. This parameter also reflects the existing standard of care, which may vary by location and may be affected by the introduction of new therapeutics.
    Infection Fatality Ratio† Scenario 5: Current Best Estimate (from Table 1)

    0-19 years: 0.00003
    20-49 years: 0.0002
    50-69 years: 0.005
    70+ years: 0.054

    Table 1. Parameter Values that vary among the five COVID-19 Pandemic Planning Scenarios. The scenarios are intended to advance public health preparedness and planning. They are not predictions or estimates of the expected impact of COVID-19. The parameter values in each scenario will be updated and augmented over time, as we learn more about the epidemiology of COVID-19. Additional parameter values might be added in the future (e.g., population density, household transmission, and/or race and ethnicity).

    For Pandemic Scenario 5:
    • This scenario represents a current best estimate about viral transmission and disease severity in the United States, with the same caveat: that the parameter values will change as more data become available.
    Scenario 5:
    • Parameter values for disease severity, viral transmissibility, and pre-symptomatic and asymptomatic disease transmission that represent the best estimate, based on the latest surveillance data and scientific knowledge. Parameter values are based on data received by CDC through August 8, 2020.

    My wife went to the doctor today and was diagnosed with COVID. I had told her previously to ask for hcl if the doc thought she was infected. He told her that he could prescribe it but good luck on finding it. He also told her that hcl is ineffective. It makes me wonder if "Big Pharm" has him on a leash.

    I will get tested tomorrow. I really don't think I have COVID symptoms. I have hay fever symptoms (runny nose and sneezing), but CDC recommends testing for anyone in the same household with COVID patients. If I check positive, I think I will take the hcl script and see what I need to do to get it.

    I will pray that your wife and you have minimal symptoms, no complications, and a quick recovery.

    Hey Roy, you & your wife will both be in our prayers. I can imagine it is super stressful to test positive. I didn’t know you could get results so quickly. Around here it takes a couple of weeks. I’m sure you are reading everything right now, so here’s one more to peruse. Keep us updated!

    Thank you for your prayers, Wingman. My wife does have the COVID symptoms. She had a chest x-ray then nasal swab, and both revealed evidence of COVID. I was advised to get tested because my wife was positive. My only symptoms are hay fever type allergy symptoms, but according to the rapid test (15 minute), I am COVID positive.
    Back in March, before testing was being done, I feel that I had real COVID symptoms. I had severe cough, chills and fever, but tested negative for flu. My recent test could well be a false positive, because aside from my head cold, I don't feel too bad.
    Marie (my wife) may be starting to improve now. Her low grade fever dropped a notch earlier today. I haven't had any fever myself.
