OK. I’m tired of the emotional reasoning, so I went to the CDC’s website and sorted through the data myself. Here are the cold, hard facts as of 9/4/21.

TOTAL CASES (US): 40,048,255
TOTAL DEATHS (US): 643,858
DEATHS BY AGE:

50-64 years: 106,674 (.27% of total cases)
65-74 years: 144,020 (.36% of total cases)
75-84 years: 173,655 (.43% of total cases)
85+ years: 185,188 (.46% of total cases)
•TOTAL DEATHS account for 1.6% of total cases.
•78.1% of TOTAL DEATHS are over the age of 65.
•94.7% of TOTAL DEATHS are over the age of 50.
•6% of TOTAL DEATHS are attributed to Covid only.
•94% of TOTAL DEATHS have an average of 2.9 co-morbidities (12/6/20).
You’re scared. I get it. We all were at the beginning. But the data does not justify almost two years of cowering in fear, and it certainly does not justify mandates, especially for our children (188 total deaths ages 1-14).

IT’S TIME TO LOVE LIFE AGAIN.
Pro-vax, anti-vax, pro-mask, anti-mask, do your thing. I don’t care.

But you will NOT intimidate me or force me to drink your fear-infused Kool-Aid.

STOP WITH THE FEAR.

JUST STOP IT.

IT IS ABSURD AND COMPLETELY NONSENSICAL.
For those asking for stats on younger populations. Straight from the CDC:

40-49 years: 22,232 (.056% of total cases)
