Daily deaths nationwide move past 900!

MONDAY, JULY 27, 2020

Where can you go to get facts?:
Yesterday, Kevin Drum said it. What he said was accurate, true, right and correct:
"Here’s the coronavirus death toll through July 25...[T]he US just keeps going up and up."
Our death toll does keep going up! Because you rarely encounter any actual data in the upper-end press, we thought we'd update you today, using two different measures.

First, let's consider the continuing rise in daily deaths nationwide. After a long, steady drop from mid-April through the end of June, daily deaths have been rising at a rapid rate:
Daily deaths from coronavirus, nationwide
7-day rolling average:


Last week in June: 538.7 (June 24-June 30)
One week ago today: 747.4 (July 13-July 19)
As of today: 905.1 (July 20-July 26)
We're working with the Washington Post's day-by-day numbers.

At the end of June, the rolling average stood at 538.7 deaths per day nationwide. The average for the past seven days was 905.1 deaths per day.

That was up more than 20% from one week ago. That's a rapid ascent.

Now, for a bit of dark humor, let's review a related statistic—total number of deaths nationwide in the past 7 days. This time, we'll compare our country's total to those from other lands:
Total deaths from coronavirus in the past week
As of July 27:

United States: 6,401
Canada: 38
Germany: 32
France: 40
Spain: 12
Italy: 62
Japan: 11
South Korea: 3
You'll rush to say that our population is larger than the populations of those other nations.

That statement will be correct! But Germany is one-fourth our size; Japan is more than one-third. We're fairly sure that you can handle the math from there.

Those numbers quantify a rolling disaster—an ongoing American carnage. To review the numbers for the whole world, you can just click here.

We're especially struck by this second set of numbers because of the places where such numbers didn't appear last week.

Eight days ago, they didn't appear on your TV screen when Chris Wallace "fact-checked" Donald J. Trump's crazy claim that we have the lowest and best mortality rate in the world.

Yesterday, we heard someone blame that failure on Fox. But those numbers also didn't appear in the New York Times or the Washington Post when they reported Trump's lunatic claim. Our journalists simply don't traffic in information. It simply doesn't occur to them to seek and present hard facts.

Wallace, the Post and the Times all said that Commander Trump's statement was wrong. They didn't report the fact that his claim was batsh*t crazy—and they didn't present the simple statistics which demonstrate that fact.

They traffic in Storyline only. It doesn't seem to occur to them to present information or facts. We'll guess that most people have no idea how crazy Trump's statement was.

Despondent anthropologists keep telling us that our species was wired this way. When these international experts tell us this, they speak in a scary past tense.

  1. I was hoping you'd mention Senator Tom Cotton's interview with the "Arkansas Democrat-Gazette", where Cotton makes a strong case for reparations for slavery.

  2. “But those numbers also didn't appear in the New York Times or the Washington Post when they reported Trump's lunatic claim.”

    That is because Trump was making a claim about the case fatality rate. At least, that was the statistic that was shown on the document he was handed. Wallace specifically refuted this statistic.

  3. Deaths:

    United States: 6,401
    Canada: 38
    Germany: 32
    France: 40
    Spain: 12
    Italy: 62
    Japan: 11
    South Korea: 3

    These numbers are the fault of liberal protesters. Trump instituted the China Ban immediately and took every action possible to stop the virus. It is all professionalism and wisdom with him. Now Biden wants to take away 911 calls.

    1. I'll give you a C+ grade for this. Needs more bigotry to be a reasonable spoof of a Right-wing post.

  4. The Trump Vaccine will be administered to 100 million people in early September and 500 million more the next month.

    Trump will hold rallies with giant vaccinated crowds with no masks.

    Democrats will oppose the vaccine, as Dr. Fauci and every other expert endorses it.

    Game over for Joe the Rapist.

    What a wonderful October Surprise!

    2. The chances of that are around .00002% but we all know you leftists hope for death of your political opponents in your dirty deranged little minds.

    3. I wasn't hoping you'd die. I was making a prediction.
      If you can pull bullshit predictions out of your ass, why shouldn't everyone be afforded the same?

    4. Mao,
      Which of Trump's six bankruptcies is your favorite, and why?

  5. "In the past week" is meaningless. Different countries peak at different times.

    This kind of propaganda only works on dull-witted leftists.

    1. What kind of propaganda? We're speaking about mathematical data.

  6. 900 deaths per day across the country many in newly peaking states.

    Andrew Cuomo's New York Deaths per day:

    April 8 799
    April 9 777
    April 10 783
    April 11 758
    April 12 778

    This went on for weeks.
    What is the point of this post?

  7. "Trump's lunatic claim"

    It's not "lunatic", dear Bob, it's politics.

    Your liberal-zombie cult and your goebbelsian media make a zillion of lunatic claims every second, day in and day out - though of course you, dear Bob, being a loyal zombie and all, wouldn't call them "lunatic".

    They started it, and Our Beloved Commander merely responds in kind. As he should. Get over yourself, dear Bob.

    2. Trump's best chance for re-election is repeatedly calling the virus "low energy" for the next 3 months. Hopefully, the virus will start questioning itself and just give up.
      LOl.

    3. Laughing at your own word-salad, dear dembot? Why, that's progress, I suppose.

    4. Trump is so far behind in the polls and so busy recovering from his covidiocy and so addicted to Filet-O-Fish, he's practically lactating.

  10. I want to testify on how I got cured from Herpes. I have been living with this disease for the past 11 months, i have done all i can to cure this disease but all my efforts proved abortive until i met an old friend of mine who told me about a herbal doctor called Dr Oniha, she told me that Dr Oniha have cure for all kinds of diseases, though i never believed in it because my believe was that there is no cure for Herpes disease. But I decided to give it a try when I contacted Dr Oniha, he told me he has a cure for herpes that he cured with herbal medicine. I order for the herbal medicine, which Dr Oniha sent to me through a courier service which i make use of and now behold the herpes is gone and i now have my life back,if you are out there living with this disease i will like you to also contact Dr Oniha and get this disease cured out of your body. I am a living testimony of Dr Oniha herbal cure. Thanks once again Dr Oniha for you are God sent. contact Dr oniha through his contact information.

  11. PLEASE READ...                    

    From the bottom of my heart, I can never thank you enough DR.BALBOSA for the wonderful work you did for me and my kids to bring back my husband. Am stella Andre from England. I was having serious relationship problems with my husband and he was no longer committed to me and our kids, when i asked him what the problem was he told me he has fell out of love for me and wanted a divorce and  i was so heart broken, i cried all day and night, it had resulted in him moving out to his friend’s apartment. Everything got worse because he started going to bars and strip clubs frequently with his friend, getting drunk and passing out. He always threatens me on the phone whenever I call him because of all the bad advice that his friend has given him. I really love him and we had been married for 8 years which gave us a beautiful daughter and a son. I had also lost a lot of money on therapists until I was introduced to DR. BALBOSA by a friend whom he helped to marry her childhood boyfriend, this gave me total confidence and strength to get him back. I did all that DR. BALBOSA asked me to do it and I also followed all instructions given to me by DR. BALBOSA to my greatest surprise after 48 hours my husband called me and rushed back home with a brown new car for me and our kids... things just changed between us emotionally, I was the happiest woman on earth that day. my husband now has a good job and stopped drinking and he stopped keeping irrelevant friends. It’s a miracle I never believed was possible because I had lost all hope until I found DR. BALBOSA...contact him today and get your love back i can assure you .... contact him on his Email on: balbosasolutionhome@gmail.com and CALL/ WHATSAPP: +2347048047728...BYE...
