More than six million deaths have been recorded in the Covid-19 pandemic that started just over two years ago. An unimaginably awful figure, and our sincere condolences to the families of the bereaved.
Without wishing to minimise their loss in any way, however, we want to repeat a point we have made before about these statistics.
As we have mentioned in a previous post, on a global daily count, despite the Alpha, Beta, Delta, Gamma, and Omicron waves, and despite the ten billion vaccines administered, deaths have rarely dipped below 5,000 cases in a day, and have never exceeded 20,000 cases in a day.
We first posted about this bizarre phenomenon in April 2021 – see the post below.
Despite all of the SARS-COV-2 variants that have appeared since then, despite all of the vaccines that have been administered, despite lockdowns, facemasks and quarantines, nothing has changed.
It’s almost as if there are predefined limits on the lethality of the virus…
Prediction: If the daily limitations given above are a constant, then global deaths from Covid-19 will continue to occur at about 3 million a year whatever we do. In March 2023, the death toll will be 9 million.
No disrespect to the dead is intended. Let’s hope we’re wrong on this particular prediction.
