Is This What’s Behind Italy’s Outrageous 10% Mortality Rate from Covid-19?

[Ed. Note: I didn’t actually read this article… I’m just assuming this jist of it is something like this… Total hosesh!t, and nonsense f*cking lies… Like, for example, if someone gets impaled on a steering column, you test the dead body for coronavirus, and if the test comes back positive, you attribute the death to coronavirus rather than attributing it to being f*cking impaled on a steering column… or something like that. Honest to chr!st, if it only killed 1.69% (12 out of 712) of the geriatric passengers on the disaster princess cruise ship, why would anyone believe it’s killing 10% of those infected in Italy when THE MAJORITY (yes, more than 50%) have no less than THREE SEPARATE comorbidity factors. Can we stop the bullsh!t now? Anytime soon, maybe?]

Italy’s 10% mortality rate has been one of the most disturbing mysteries of the global pandemic. Italy’s mortality rate is roughly 20x Germany’s (a relatively benign 0.4%), and many multiples of China’s (roughly 2.5%) rate.

As scientists puzzle over the reason, researchers have proposed a theory that’s being vetted by peers: Italy’s mild flu season left a larger victim pool for COVID-19. This would suggest that the US, which has struggled with more lethal flu seasons, won’t have as large a pool of potential high-risk victims, especially as testing suggests the virus is more widespread than many had expected.
