Is Coronavirus Saving Some Lives

What this notes is that this lock down is also saving a lot of lives as well from normal causes.   A  .
wild guess here is around 150,000.

Not unexpected of course.

COV 19 has been the cause of around 20,000 deaths in the USA.    It has been far away from a run away and this has to be thanks to the quarantine in large part.  We saw hospitals over run in Itally and Spain so we may well may dodged a bullit.  Better still we have bought time allowing us all to stock up on Vitamin C and C and anything else that can help.

We also know interventions that work as well.

Is Coronavirus Saving Some Lives?

Systems of Coronavirus

Coronavirus has taken over 20,000 lives in the United States which is unfortunate and we pray for those who have lost loved ones and for those who have passed on. About half Coronavirus deaths are in New York that is interesting as New York as the most abortions of any state and city in the country. The Guttmacher Institute estimates that approximately 105,380 abortions took place in New York during 2017, which allows abortions up to birth and after. Abortions killed one million three hundred thousand 1300,000 babies in 2018 with beating hearts per year killing 3,561 per day according to Planned Parenthood. A staggering 41 percent of all New York City pregnancies end in abortion.

Texas has closed all abortion facilities during the pandemic. Many Planned Parenthood facilities are now closed In order to ease the burden and conserve resources, nonessential and elective surgeries are on hold across the country. According to CNN, at least 25 states have implemented the federal recommendation to delay elective surgical procedures. 1,300,000 abortions divided half the states equals 530,000 per year divided by four months equals approximately 132,500 babies with their hearts beating are being saved.

Auto accidents kill close to 40,000 people every year in the United States (according to the National Highway Traffic and Safety Association. an average of 110 deaths per day saving approximately 10,000 lives. There were 1,098 automobile deaths driving in New York last year

3,000 train accidents occur each year in the United States, and nearly 1,000 people die each year as a result.

Forty thousand 40,000 people were killed in shootings last year amid a growing number of suicides involving firearms, CDC reveals.14,542 were homicides mostly in large cities that are now locked down. There are 110 people dying per day. Philadelphia and Miami news seldom report shootings now. Saving an estimated 10, 000 lives.

Number of pedestrian fatalities 2019 last year was 6,590, Large cut in deaths this year. Saving an estimated 10,1500 lives.

However, the virus is also saving lives.Fighting around the world has greatly slackened. Taliban has called for a ceasefire in Afghanistan.

Aviation accidents 422 killed in 2018. Most light planes are grounded saving lives. Flying restricted saving 100/lived

Construction workers 325 killed last year from falls.

The atmosphere is better with fewer planes flying and autos moving.

Every year in the US, 3,572 people die from drowning. Beaches are now closed saving a 1000 lives.

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) remains the leading cause of death in the United States, responsible for 840,768 deaths (635,260 cardiac) in 2016. Approximately 84 million people in this country suffer from some form of cardiovascular disease, causing about 2,200 deaths a day, averaging one death every 40 seconds. Many cardiac deaths are listed as coronavirus 5000

Eighty-five percent of the deaths — 3.9 million people — were from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease ( COPD ), which moved up in that period of time to become the third leading cause of death, ahead of stroke, in the United State . Many normal pulmonary deaths are listed as coronavirus. 5000

It should be noted most of the people dying from Coronavirus have other diseases of the heart, arteries and lungs. Few otherwise healthy people are dying. Deaths per day700 a day have been reported. In many other countries if a person has the disease and dies from the underlying causes they are not counted as Coronavirus deaths. We have difficulty in determining if people with heart or lung problems would have died without the Coronavirus disease. Many thousands of deaths from the underlying causes would have likely occurred. A wild estimate is that Coronavirus has saved 150.000 lives from various causes and probably won’t kill that many in the US.
