Where is the global panic about deaths from road accidents? Or HIV/AIDS? Or tuberculosis? Why is COVID-19 worthy of a 6 month on-going panic when TB doesn’t rate a mention?
Currently, the global total death toll from COVID-19 is 562,000 people. Round that out to 0.6 million.
In other news, annual deaths from road accident trauma total 1.2m people, tuberculosis also kills 1.2m people annually and HIV/AIDS is killing about 1m people each year. Each and every year.
Let’s tally up the score over the last three years in terms of aggregate deaths:
- Combined road trauma, TB and HIV/AIDS: 10.2m deaths
- COVID-19: 0.6m deaths
Why weren’t economies busted and free people locked down years ago?
One thought on “Perspective”
Our communist friends have been asking that last question for one hundred years.
