the overall CFR is actually pulled up by all the deaths in US nursing homes, which a number of governors ordered to house Covid-19 patients

The latest estimates show that Covid-19 is nowhere near as lethal as early models claimed, yet the mainstream media have been mum on the subject, prompting some prominent lockdown critics to ask why that might be the case.

According to the “current best estimate” scenario laid out by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the overall case fatality rate (CFR) is significantly lower than 3.4 percent that World Health Organization claimed early on – the figure used to justify draconian lockdowns across much of the globe. The CDC also currently estimates that 35 percent of all Covid-19 infections may be asymptomatic. 

The revelation should have been major news, but has gone largely unnoticed, Blaze columnist Daniel Horowitz pointed out on Monday.

We destroyed our entire country and suspended democracy all for a lie, and these people perpetrated the unscientific degree of panic. Will they ever admit the grave consequences of their error?

Among the points Horowitz makes in his commentary is that the overall CFR is actually pulled up by all the deaths in US nursing homes, which a number of governors ordered to house Covid-19 patients, thus spreading the infection to the most vulnerable population. 

“An astounding 62 percent of all [Covid-19] deaths were in the six states confirmed to have done this, even though they only compose 18 percent of the national population,” he wrote.

Horowitz claims that the actual death rate for the general population of all ages and health conditions outside of nursing homes is closer to “1 in 1,000,” as he blasts both the public policy response to the disease and the media coverage of it.
