Thanks. I believe that the figures you cite are from a 'Current Best Estimate' scenario from 8/2020. Here are the figures from the CDC link you sent as updated 3/2021:Teebs wrote: ↑Sun May 09, 2021 3:11 amCalculations are from the data on this site:thelightcavalry wrote: ↑Sat May 08, 2021 3:52 pm
I agree with your conclusions, but I am sceptical about this citation of recovery rates supposedly made by the CDC. I just made the mistake of quoting these figures to someone without verifying. Kindly supply a link to an authoritative source as I don't see it.

• Ages 0 to 17 = 99.998%
• Ages 18 to 49 = 99.95%
• Ages 50 to 64 = 99.4%
• Ages 65 and older = 91.0%
The estimate for the oldest cohort is somewhat worse, but merely emphasizes the sanity of a focussed protection strategy a la the Great Barrington Declaration and conventional thinking prior to the current plague of the mind.
