Welcome to the October edition of the stewards corner.
I wish I had more business to discuss with you. As of now there practically is no business. So I have to write something, so let's vent a little.
A few weeks ago I listened to a doctor from Penn State Hershey Medical Center explain why COVID 19 is so much more dangerous than the flu. He said that more people are dying from COVID than the flu. Younger people, older people, and people with certain medical issues. One out of every 200 people to be exact. Not two weeks later I watched Rachel Lavine speak about getting your flu shot and how necessary it was for the upcoming flu season. She says the numbers they have on flu related death are only numbers from hospitalized patients that are tested for the flu and die while in the hospital, and many more die that we don’t know about, therefore in my opinion we can’t say it’s worse than the flu. Because the numbers the medical profession and CDC are using aren't accurate numbers. Are you scared yet. Other numbers that don't add up are nursing homes deaths an astounding number of elderly are being killed by COVID 19 an astounding 32 percent unless you check the death rate for nursing home in 2019 that was an astounding 31 percent with out COVID 19. Then there’s a problem with the numbers of folks that have actually been counted as COVID related deaths. Such as car accidents counted as COVID, and even drowning counted as COVID.
Maybe we should look at how our leaders are responding to the disease. Gov Wolf walks in a protest without a mask and no social distancing. The Gov and his side kick Rachel used no masks or social distancing while giving daily briefings on COVID 19. Joe Biden hides in his basement but on a segment with Anderson Cooper's ear with no social distancing. Maybe our leaders know more about this virus than what they’re telling us. You decide what you want to believe as for me I still believe in Santa Clause.
Hope to see you soon,
