I was contemplating COVID-19 when something interesting popped out at me. Here’s what it was.

0:25 Differentiating factors
1:00 What we’re looking at
1:20 A study out of Santa Clara
2:10 Looking at the healthy group vs. the unhealthy group
3:33 What is the real problem?

Today we’re going to talk about COVID-19 and the real problem regarding COVID-19.

It can be very difficult to make sense of this very complex problem unless you start putting pieces of the data into different categories, such as healthy people and unhealthy people. When talking about unhealthy people, I mean those people who have pre-existing health problems, such as metabolic syndrome.

A few examples of metabolic syndrome are:

• High blood pressure
• Cardiovascular disease
• High cholesterol
• Diabetes
• Obesity
• Insulin resistance

I created two categories: healthy people and unhealthy people. I put the infection fatality rates underneath each category. I also added additional data from a study out of Santa Clara, which revealed there could have been more people that were infected with the coronavirus.

With this study, they used the antibody test. This means they didn’t test for the infection but for the antibodies. A person who has antibodies to COVID-19 has already been infected by the virus and recovered. Looking at all of the data, including the antibody test, it seems the virus may be much less dangerous than once believed.

Looking at the healthy group according to this data (out of the people who have been infected):

Ages 0-17 — Have a 99.9995% survival rate
Ages 18-44 — Have a 99.9784% survival rate
Ages 45-64 — Have a 99.9029% survival rate
Ages 65-74 — Have a 99.8295% survival rate
Ages 75+ — Have a 99.6226% survival rate

Looking at the unhealthy group according to this data (out of the people who have been infected):

Ages 0-17 — Have a 99.9988% survival rate
Ages 18-44 — Have a 99.9051% survival rate
Ages 45-64 — Have a 99.4325% survival rate
Ages 65-74 — Have a 99.4425% survival rate
Ages 75+ — Have a 98.9697% survival rate

So, is the real problem the virus, or a weak immune system/metabolic syndrome?

A big problem is that we’re lumping both categories together and treating both groups the same—when the great majority fall in the healthy category and not the unhealthy category.

The entire focus has been on the virus. But, what about what we could do for metabolic syndrome and the immune system? Fixing the virus will not fix the pre-existing health problems, so the next time the virus comes around, we have the same problem happening over and over again.
