  1. “The Columbia/Boone County Health Department reports there have been 5,573 cases of COVID-19 in Boone County since the beginning of the pandemic”.
    And only 14 deaths. Do the math. 14 deaths divided by 5,573 cases gives you an infection fatality rate of 0.0025%. Far less than ordinary influenza, which ranges from 0.005% to 0.020%. For this we have sacrificed our economic, social, and psychiatric health. This is what you get when “experts” are given such power. As all experts are only experts in a particular field, in this case medicine. They are blind to any other effect. If the only tool you have is a hammer, all problems are nails.

  2. Does the case count consider those coming to the area because of the plethora of medical care available? Does it account for the fact that hospitals are paid extra for COVID admissions, and more yet if they are put on a ventilator? You always get more of what you subsidize, and less of what you tax. Simple human nature.
