COVID FATALITY RATE ONLY 1.8% IN U.S. FOR PATIENTS UNDER 65

Oxford High School families of victims, all students and faculty: You are in our thoughts and prayers. This is an unthinkable tragedy that leaves us wondering why and how? All of us grieve with you.

We implore the Michigan Legislature and the US Congress to seriously address this issue today. No more innocent, bright and promising lives should be lost.

God Bless Oxford students, their families and the United States of America.

POLITICS ASIDE…COVID FATALITY RATE ONLY 1.8% IN U.S. FOR PATIENTS UNDER 65 WITH NO PRE-EXISTING CONDITIONS

Lives matter, so providing biased information would be completely irresponsible. We would never do that. There is much debate about reopening the economy and, unfortunately, it has taken on a political tone. We just want what’s best for all of us.
 
To that end, consider this as you consider staying open…or reopening:
 
  1. COVID FATALITY RATE IN USA FOR PEOPLE UNDER 65 WITH NO PRE-EXISTING CONDITION: 1.8%. (Stanford Medical study.)
     
  2. PROPER COVID PROTOCOL STILL VITAL: Nobody is suggesting no masks and no distancing in large groups, and not keeping surfaces sterile.
     
  3. NEGATIVE NEWS SELLS: As a former president of the Michigan Association of Broadcasters I know this well. You’ve all heard the expression, “If it bleeds, it leads.” Well, unfortunately, that is true. If there’s bad news, people tune in more. Ratings increase. Revenue increases. All the media is guilty of this…right or left.
     
  4. CALM YOUR EMPLOYEES WITH FACTS: For those under 65 with no pre-existing conditions, the risk of dying from COVID-19 is minimal according to the Stanford study above. Of the people I know who have gotten it, the range of severity is all over the place…from 2 days to 2 weeks. However, the same can be said about the seasonal flu.
     
How you decide to run your business is, of course, your call. But, knowing the actual fatality rate here may help you with your decision. Facts are facts. They are not subject to interpretation.

Onward and upward!
