The tragedy of COVID - 19 pandemic appears to be entering containment phase. Tens of thousands of Americans have die, and Americans are now desperate for sensible policymakers WHO have courage to ignore panic and rely on facts. Leaders must examine accumulated data to see what has actually happen, rather than keep emphasizing hypothetical projections; combine that empirical evidence with fundamental principles of biology established for decades; and then thoughtfully restore the country to function. Five key facts are being ignored by those calling for continuing near - total lockdown. Fact 1: overwhelming majority of people do not have any significant risk of dying from COVID - 19. A recent Stanford University antibody study now estimates that the fatality rate if infected is likely 0. 1 to 0. 2 percent, risk far lower than previous World Health Organization estimates that were 20 to 30 times higher and that motivated isolation policies. In New York City, epicenter of the pandemic with more than one - third of all US deaths, rate of death for people 18 to 45 years old is 0. 1 percent, or 10 per 100 000 in population. On other hand, people aged 75 and over have a death rate of 80 times that. For people under 18 years old, rate of death is zero per 100 000. Of all fatal cases in New York state, two - thirds were in patients over 70 years of age; more than 95 percent were over 50 years of age; and about 90 percent of all fatal cases had underlying illness. Of 6 570 confirmed COVID - 19 deaths fully investigated for underlying conditions to date, 6 520, or 99. 2 percent, had underlying illness. If you do not already have an underlying chronic condition, your chances of dying are small, regardless of age. And young adults and children in normal health have almost no risk of any serious illness from COVID - 19. We can learn about hospital utilization from data from New York City, hotbed of COVID - 19 with more than 34 600 hospitalizations to date. For those under 18 years of age, hospitalization from virus is 0. 01 percent, or 11 per 100 000 people; for those 18 to 44 years old, hospitalization is 0. 1 percent. Even for people ages 65 to 74, only 1. 7 percent were hospitalize. Of 4 103 confirmed COVID - 19 patients with symptoms bad enough to seek medical care, Dr. Leora Horwitz of NYU Medical Center concluded age is far and away the strongest risk factor for hospitalization. Even an early WHO report noted that 80 percent of all cases were mild, and more recent studies show a far more widespread rate of infection and lower rate of serious illness. Half of all people testing positive for infection have no symptoms at all. The vast majority of younger, otherwise healthy people do not need significant medical care if they catch this infection. Fact 3: Vital population immunity is prevented by total isolation policies, prolonging the problem.
