There’s one shocking prediction about the Chinese coronavirus that Democrats are looking forward to.
They care more about winning the election than people dying.
And Donald Trump found out this one horrible fact about the coronavirus.
It’s been well-established at this point that COVID-19 disproportionally affects people who are older and have comorbidities.
14.8% of people over 80 who get the Chinese coronavirus die. The death rate for people in between 10 to 40 is only 0.2%.
Cardiovascular disease and diabetes also raise the risk factor considerably.
Looking at these factors, it’s clear that the most vulnerable health wise in society have just become more vulnerable.
The Democrats like to trumpet the fact that they care for “marginalized people,” but instead of reacting with compassion, the Washington Post is guessing that more Republicans will die than Democrats.
Real Clear Politics reports:
JENNIFER RUBIN, WASHINGTON POST: There is a particular cruelty/irony that it is their core viewers, the Republican older viewers, who are the most at risk.
And when you think about it, which party immediately canceled all of their rallies? Which party immediately started having their political figures really portray and use their lies as an example? It was the Democrats.
So, I hate to put it this way, but there will be less Democrat deaths because there will be less mass gatherings, there will be less opportunities for people to congregate and share this horrible disease. So it is really a very short-sighted strategy…I think the problem will be what happens unfortunately if we start to follow that Italian model where we have mass casualties, and our lives are not disrupted for a week or two, but we’re talking months. And that is going to be some serious stuff. And I don’t know if their brainwashing is so strong as to carry on and make excuses for Trump during that. But this will be some serious stuff.
This is a twisted way of looking at the statistics.
There’s no way of knowing where this virus will hit hardest, it depends on a variety of factors, many of which are unknown.
Is the virus less transmissible in heat, do rural areas get hit less hard than cities, are there genetic factors that favor certain groups of people?
These are all data that are unknown at the moment and should be figured out, not to try and figure out the death rate of Republicans or Democrats, but so that the resources can be given to those who need them most.
Democrats need to lay their party politics aside and start working on the real problems because despite what they think, blaming Donald Trump isn’t a solution.
In fact, it’s part of the problem because Donald Trump is working hard to try and prepare America for the epidemic that is coming.
Trump is encouraging people to meet in groups of under 10 people. There’s no way that Trump isn’t taking this seriously.
He’s not just trying to protect the people who voted for him, he’s our President, he’s trying to protect America.
