From the July 2009 Idaho Observer:
Doing pandemic math In 2008, the world death rate was 8.23 deaths per 1,000 population. Wikipedia cites the U.S. Census Bureau estimate of world population to be 6.77 billion as of 10 July 2009. Total Death rate 8.23 deaths per 1,000 population in 6.77 billion people means:
Doing pandemic math
In 2008, the world death rate was 8.23 deaths per 1,000 population.
Wikipedia cites the U.S. Census Bureau estimate of world population to be 6.77 billion as of 10 July 2009.
Total Death rate
8.23 deaths per 1,000 population in 6.77 billion people means:
Approximately 55.7 million deaths per year
Approximately 153,000 deaths per day
Approximately 6,360 deaths per hour
Approximately 106 deaths per minute
Approximately 1.77 deaths per second (Almost 2 deaths per second)
Influenza Death rate According to the World Health Organization (WHO)
"In annual influenza epidemics 5-15 percent of the population are affected with upper respiratory tract infections. Hospitalization and deaths mainly occur in high-risk groups (elderly, chronically ill). Although difficult to assess, these annual epidemics are thought to result in between three and five million cases of severe illness and between 250 000 and 500 000 deaths every year around the world. Most deaths currently associated with influenza in industrialized countries occur among the elderly over 65 years of age."
It should be noted that in the U.S., the above 5-15 percent includes Influenza Like Illness (ILIs). Clinically confirmed influenza cases are only 10-15 percent of the total ILI cases. According to WHO figures, in a bad year, 500,000 people die from influenza or ILIs.
500,000/365 = 1370 deaths from influenza per day based on WHO figures.
1,370/24 = 57 deaths from influenza per hour
57/60 = one death from influenza every 63 seconds on average.
If we use the figure of 250,000 deaths per year from influenza related causes, the average becomes 1 death every 2 minutes and 6 seconds from influenza.
According to WHO, as of June 19, 2009, the worldwide total for H1N1 (swine flu) associated deaths was 180.
In other words, over several months of time, the number of alleged deaths from "swine flu" have totaled the number that normally die in a slow year of regular influenza during a period equal to 6 hours and 18 minutes. ~Thanks t Dewey Duffel for doing the math that proves the need to mass produce some 5 billion vaccines containing ingredients of known lethality to "protect" 80 percent of the worlds population from...
