ONE PROBLEM - THAT'S ABSURD
But, the NY Antigen test is hardly the only proof that the death rate number is much much lower than portrayed on CNN 24/7. This California study showed that between 2.4% to 4.2% Of County Residents Already Had The Virus which was 50 to 85 TIMES the actual reported cases for the county in its official figures. And this GENETIC STUDY - a CNN Link - suggests that up to 10% of the world has already been exposed to COVID19 - over 700 MILLION exposed in the world...if true for America - that would mean 33 MILLION already exposed (btw, 86,000 divided by 33 million is 0.00260%). BTW, that figure compares to a death rate from the yearly flu of 0.1% to 0.2%.
Now, perhaps the number is somewhere else but one can easily see how much lower the death rate can be calculated to be when infection rates higher than what CNN is broadcasting 24/7 are used. Indeed, at today's CNN's numbers of 1.4 million infections here in the US - 1.4 million divided by the US population of 330 million leads to an infection rate in the USA of a similar nature - well below what is portrayed on TV.
What could possibly be the purpose of purposely deceiving the public as to the severity of the virus? Certainly CNN knows that an over representation of the death rate can only generate fear in the public. Fear that has some people fearful of stepping outside or going to the store - even for groceries or medicine. Indeed, one has to wonder if that same fear, by Democrats who watch CNN, may have led to this finding about eating in restaurants as they reopen the country - I've even seen more recent data that suggests the gap is even wider than 2.5 to 1. (Could such fear ultimately put an even bigger drag on Blue States economies?)
It's time the CNN death rate has been called out as Barfstew - and we just did it.
