That's per capita.

It is 3 persons per 1000 per year.


In conclusion, we estimate that rates of hospitalization or ED visits associated with rhinovirus in Davidson County, TN were 3.0 and 6.9, respectively per 1000 people per year.



Phage look...

6.9 went to the emergency dept.
3 got hospitalized.

That means almost half that came in sick got hospitalized.

The figure you cite that's 4% of confirmed cases implies that these ppl got tested so probably were in the ED.

Even with a margin of error of 50% it appears Rhinovirus has at minimum a 5x higher hospitalization rate.

How do you confirm a case without testing?

Are you saying all the Covid tests are done at Wal-Mart or what.

If I need to be tested for Covid right now where would I go?

A hospital ED maybe?

One need not be in the ED to be tested in Tennessee, for quite some time.

Well that's a mobile ED than.
The testing was an emergency so therefore it counts as ED.

Bull#.

No symptoms required and the positivity rate in Tennessee is running well under 10%

I don't have a mobile Rhino testing organization.

So the Covid testing is equivalent to the Rhino ED testing.

Explain.

How does testing for Covid mobile not equate to testing in an ED?

Teach me.

One need not be symptomatic. One does not go to the ED without symptoms.

What's the difference?

Oh I know, equating them shows Rhino is way worse than Covid19.

That's why you reject the equation.

Looks like you came in with a preconceived notion that Covid is the worst ever and only support that.

Anything against it you aren't accepting at all.

This is consistent over months.

Yes they do ALL THE TIME.

Are you seriously just making this up as you go?
WTF

I considered going 15 times and I have no symptoms but I got insurance.

I'm just curious.

You know you just damaged your point, right?

Your claim is that the hospitalization rate for COVID-19 is 4% because mostly people who are exhibiting serious symptoms go to the ED and are are tested. So the hospitalization numbers are weighted toward those who are exhibiting serious symptoms because those are the ones who go to the ED for testing.

Now you are saying that people just go to the ER with no symptoms in order to be tested. Are you are saying that people are hospitalized simply because they go to an ER and test positive? No matter what their symptoms are (or aren't)?

No because then ED visits would be = to hospitalizations.

So obviously they're sending over half of them home after testing for Rhino.

I didn't damage my point you just need me to explain more aspects in more detail.

So keep asking questions let's get to the bottom of this.

Is Rhino worse than Covid?
