CoViD19 vs Flu both need masks
CoViD19 vs Influenza (A&B)
From: Nat Suwarnasarn [mailto:njsarn9@...]
Masks, much needed.
There was a discussion on PAPA analog by an Insurance guy that the deaths due to CoViD19 is small (~13,087 so far) compared to the numbers of US deaths due to Flu could be as high as ~ 59,000 during 2019-2020 Flu season (actual Flu data not out yet)
Analyzing the (US) data:
· Dividing CoViD19 deaths 13,087 by 3 months = ~ 4,000 per months. (Total infected cases = 406,585)
o Insurance guy didn’t notice the death rate per infected is 13,087*100 / 406,858 = 3.21%
· Dividing Flu deaths 59,000 by 6 months = ~ 10,000 per months (Total infected cases ~ 45,000,000)
o Flu death rate = 59,000*100 / 45,000,000 = 0.13%
So the virulent of CoViD19 to Flu is about 3.21 / 0.13 = 24.7 or 25 times more deadly.
