Here is a recent graph from the CDC.
This is very good news for people over 50. With two primary and two boosters, it is extremely unlikely you will die, or even be hospitalized. Add to that the new bivalent booster, and it will be much less likely you are even infected. For vaccinated people, COVID is now hardly more dangerous than unvaccinated influenza. This is a triumph of 21st century medicine.
For unvaccinated people over 50, COVID is and will remain a dance with death. This graph shows that over 6 per 100,000 unvaccinated people die per week. Around 330 per year, or 1 in 300 people. Because time does not stop after one year, and COVID is not likely to go away, if the infection rate and reinfection rate among unvaccinated people remains at this level, given that a 50 year old person is likely to live another 30 years, unvaccinated people will have about 1 in 10 chances of dying in agony from COVID.
The Republican party, trialsitenews, and other members of the Death Cult are to blame for this carnage, and for tragic long term COVID cases. The patients themselves are also to blame, of course. This is totally avoidable. It is by far the largest number of unnecessary deaths in the history of the U.S.
