We are all aware of this statement by the CDC:
CDC officials say around 100,000 people are likely infected with the new flu strain in the United States
For some reason, I had not thought of this before, but this tells us that logically the number of deaths are grossly under reported. Heres why:
CDC's most recent numbers are
13,217 infected 27 deaths (states have confimed much higher)
The percentage of deaths comes to .20% or .0020
If 100,000 are infected, logically there should be 200 fatalities.
I'm sure that there are special formulas for figuring the fatality rate that far exceed what I have just shown. Still, 200 deaths are no where near
27 deaths. Any thoughts?
