Illustrative data regarding the magnitude of the covid pandemic in comparison with others
Some of the many data points on this matter. This placeholder post will be helpful to those who can do basic arithmetic and read basic charts. Dan’s followers and other types of morons (e.g. US Democrats) won’t find this helpful.

I'm keeping a note of this for the future. Victoria's chief health officer is massively exaggerating and misleading the entire public and politicians.

What is missing today is a sense of proportion.
We are seeing the GREATEST FAILURE OF ARITHMETIC LITERACY in human history.
People in the media, politics, science and public service just can't add and divide.
They don't know what is 2+2. pic.twitter.com/Hm3nIPCmiz

I think you are right, once #IstandwithDan find out the truth, it is not going to be good for Dan or them…. It might be it own crisis, Covid Overreaction Pandemic#CovidOverreactionDeniers pic.twitter.com/X7JqpvvfHw

1/6 HOSPITALS AND COVID-19
Stories of hospitals being overwhelmed from CV19 are often without context
Hospitals operate near capacity, so needing extra space, staff, and resources isn’t uncommon

🇸🇪 ICU status update – Sweden. Currently at 16 beds occupied due to #covid19. Been at this level for some time now as can be seen below👇🏽. That is 16 beds in the entire country. pic.twitter.com/Wi3akraYnm

The US govt last week updated the survival rates (i.e., IF infected) for Covid19:

This chart should be glued to the forehead of "experts" who argue for lockdowns.
Kurt Witkowski had described the behaviour of all such viruses in March and he was ridiculed. But he was right and the fergusons (no capitalisation) were wrong. https://t.co/iQFoV6hIFO

Death was so common in New York City In the in the 19th century that the 1918 influenza pandemic would have been a good year back then.

Latest ONS deaths data (to week ending 4 September) has been released.
In-week deaths are much lower than normal, which will be mostly due to Bank Holiday Monday registry office closures.
Year to date there have been 14% more deaths than the 5-year average (2015-19). pic.twitter.com/PrFxIGaUDg

The total death rate in Sweden to 30 Aug 2020 remains the same as previous years – despite no lockdowns. Even if we achieve a similar thing, at what other costs have we gotten there? pic.twitter.com/IRgRIIeW99

Covid has not significantly impacted life expectancy. Odds of death from something other than covid is WAY higher across all ages.
For all the pain we are putting ourselves and our children through for covid, you think we would do more about our actual leading causes of death. pic.twitter.com/N2KUbymOX2

~85yo = median age 400+ Oz COVID19 losses
~82yo = median of other 80000+ Aussies dead in 2020
Ignoring that COVID19 is weak versus Spanish Flu, govts are choosing to devastate society's jobs, finances, charities & pursuit of happiness

One of the main reasons we have this draconian lockdown and irrational panic is thanks to modeling by the South African COVID-19 Modeling Consortium (Moultrie brothers and co.) which has been so wrong it’s arguably criminal.

Are people really going to keep advocating for lockdowns, knowing COVID produced fewer per-capita deaths in Sweden in 2020 than the country experienced 5 short years ago? pic.twitter.com/ASiuDz0rMM

Universal lockdowns are bad policy
Here are 12 articles, since April, that provide a sample of the evidence available, indicating lockdowns are not a key intervention in preventing the harms caused by Covid-19. pic.twitter.com/Ftq5QvwEGf

"Americans still misperceive the risks of death from COVID for different age cohorts—to a shocking extent; The misperception is greater for those who identify as Democrats, and for those who rely more on social media for information…"https://t.co/z7TtCMEcEW pic.twitter.com/JkT2uuBkpF

Thanks to #Sweden we definitely know there is no “calamity”: A comparison between 1990-2019 and 2020 death rates. Only in April, there is a spike, which still is 19th in the list of deadliest months during that time. Also 6 month average is 24th in 30 years. #SwedenWasRight pic.twitter.com/ONhwCDTTzG

8K die every day on non epidemic year. 🙀 Whatever c19 mortality is is normal but people cannot process numbers by ear.
