  1. https://www.usatoday.com/story/money/2020/06/11/how-many-people-died-the-year-you-were-born/111928450/
  2. In the US, the average change from 2010-2018 was about 46k. The highest was 86k.
  3. The fluctuation really isn't that much: https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/nvss/vsrr/covid19/excess_deaths.htm. It's nowhere close to 300,000.
  4. That matches up with what I'm seeing here: https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/nvss/vsrr/covid19/excess_deaths.htm. While there is no doubt some dubious reporting of COVID-related deaths for financial purposes, the fact that nearly 300,000 more deaths have occurred than normal is very telling.
  5. Number of deaths, from the first week of January through the first week of October: 2020: 2,476,485 2019: 2,181,384 2018: 2,182,135 2017: 2,089,832 (the first week of January is missing from 2017, but it looks like it would be about 60,000, bringing this total to 2,149,832)
  6. I don't know what it looks like on an iPhone, but on a computer, there's a Download button at the bottom right of the chart. After selecting that, you can select Data.
  7. There's a good chart here https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/nvss/vsrr/covid19/excess_deaths.htm, about halfway down the page. You can also download the raw data from that site. The 200K number I was referring to was for all deaths, no matter the cause.
  8. I don't doubt that there is some question in reporting covid-19 deaths, but the fact is, more than 200,000 more people have died this year in the US than normally would have.
  9. That's a different question. I was responding to your suggestion that this is only slightly worse than the flu.
  10. No. Because Johns Hopkins says so, among others. https://www.usnews.com/news/health-news/articles/2020-10-13/covid-19-taking-huge-toll-in-excess-us-deaths. If you research excess mortality you can find plenty of information on it.
  11. It's not slightly worse than the flu. There have been over 200,000 more deaths in the US this year than average. Research "excess mortality". The numbers are real.
  12. Also it's not just about mortality rate. There's a lot of unknowns regarding long-term effects. Some people are experiencing difficulties months after having the virus.
  13. I agree. With the way the numbers are trending upward in the US in general and in Florida in particular, it's not looking good.
  14. I'm sorry for your loss, but to be fair, the statement highlighted may or may not be true. It could be that quarantining prevented members of your family from catching the virus. Obviously, you can never know.
