      Masrour Barzani sends an urgent invitation: Fears of citizens losing their lives are on an alarming rise
           2021-03-29 06:23   Shafaq News / The Prime Minister of Kurdistan Regional Government, Masrour Barzani said, on Monday, that the rapid rise in Corona virus infections in the region is a matter of concern.
      Barzani wrote a tweet on his Twitter account, "It is not the time for politics now, as the health sector in the Kurdistan Region is facing a difficult test, fears of citizens losing their lives have risen and the gains we have gained from the health measures that we have taken are at risk."
      He said, "The rapid rise in injuries is a matter of concern, and in these sensitive situations, I call on the governors in the four provinces of the region to shoulder their responsibilities in protecting the lives of people and to take all measures that would protect the safety of citizens."
      Earlier today, the Ministry of Health in the Kurdistan Region issued a warning about an outbreak of the virus, after yesterday, Monday, nearly a thousand cases were recorded, which is the highest toll this year in the four governorates of the region.
      Since the outbreak of the virus in the region, 119,480 people have been infected, 108,483 people have recovered, and 3,643 others have died, as of Sunday.

      The Completely Fraudulent COVID-19 Fatality Timeline: From 40 Million... to 2 Million... to 200,000... to 81,766... to 60,415 Deaths
    • By Synopsis
      Misposted on the last one. Mods, please remove the previous unfinished post.
      Let's start with some POSITIVE Recovery Stories.
      But WAIT, let's FIRST lookie HERE at the CDC "statwistics".
      What is already known about this topic?
      Early data from China suggest that a majority of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) deaths have occurred among adults aged ≥60 years and among persons with serious underlying health conditions.
      What is added by this report?
      This first preliminary description of outcomes among patients with COVID-19 in the United States indicates that fatality was highest in persons aged ≥85, ranging from 10% to 27%, followed by 3% to 11% among persons aged 65–84 years, 1% to 3% among persons aged 55-64 years, <1% among persons aged 20–54 years, and no fatalities among persons aged ≤19 years.
      What are the implications for public health practice?
      COVID-19 can result in severe disease, including hospitalization, admission to an intensive care unit, and death, especially among older adults. Everyone can take actions, such as social distancing, to help slow the spread of COVID-19 and protect older adults from severe illness.
      So, OK, the 85+ yr olds are MOST vulnerable AND those having PREEXISTING CONDITIONS.
      Well, LOOKIE HERE. A 95 yr old WWII Vet WITH multiple preexisting conditions. Did HE, pray tell, "expire"???!!!
      Obviously NOT!!!:
      But WAIT, UNIMAGINABLY there is one BETTER YET!!!
      A 104 yr old WWII Vet. Did HE, pray tell, "expire"???!!!
      Obviously, NOT!!!:
      So, WHAT, pray tell, ABOUT THEE 2019-2020 "flu"???!!!
      2019-2020 U.S. Flu Season: Preliminary Burden Estimates
      Other Languages CDC estimates* that, from October 1, 2019, through March 28, 2020, there have been:
      39,000,000 – 55,000,000
      flu illnesses
      18,000,000 – 26,000,000
      flu medical visits
      400,000 – 730,000
      flu hospitalizations
      24,000 – 63,000
      flu deaths
      *Because influenza surveillance does not capture all cases of flu that occur in the U.S., CDC provides these estimated ranges to better reflect the larger burden of influenza. These estimates are calculated based on CDC’s weekly influenza surveillance data and are preliminary.
      **Influenza testing across the United States may be higher than normal at this time of year because of the COVID-19 pandemic. These estimates may partly reflect increases in testing in recent weeks and may be adjusted downward once the season is complete and final data for the 2019/20 season are available.
      AND THEE COVID-19 Hysteria Continues.
      Of COURSE, A BIG Thank You to ALL the Libtards AND THEIR "weaponized" Snowflake And Buttercup Idiot Brigade Volunteer Forces!!!
      Hey, Lookie HERE:
      COVID-19 cases in the United States by date of illness onset, January 12, 2020, to April 2, 2020, at 4pm ET (n=63,995)*
      * Does not include cases among persons repatriated to the United States from Wuhan, China and Japan, or U.S.-identified cases where the date of illness onset or specimen collection date has not yet been reported. Date is calculated as illness onset date if known. If not, an estimated illness onset date was calculated using specimen collection date.
      Note: On March 24, CDC updated the data included in this figure to include estimated illness onset date.
      Cases of COVID-19 Reported in the US, by Source of Exposure*† Cases of COVID-19 Reported in the US, by Source of Exposure Travel-related 1,388 Close contact 4,325 Under investigation 233,566 Total cases 239,279 * Data include both confirmed and presumptive positive cases of COVID-19 reported to CDC or tested at CDC since January 21, 2020, with the exception of testing results for persons repatriated to the United States from Wuhan, China and Japan. State and local public health departments are now testing and publicly reporting their cases. In the event of a discrepancy between CDC cases and cases reported by state and local public health officials, data reported by states should be considered the most up to date.
      † CDC is no longer reporting the number of persons under investigation (PUIs) that have been tested, as well as PUIs that have tested negative. Now that states are testing and reporting their own results, CDC’s numbers are not representative of all testing being done nationwide. 
      Sure, 24Mar2020 until NOW has to be updated.
      The trend, HOWEVER, favors a turn for the BETTER!!!
