Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Powerlineblog.com: “Coronavirus in one state (70)”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

It should be hard to sustain the epidemic panic in Minnesota. New deaths are extremely low. Over the last three reported days, for example, the authorities have attributed five), five, and four deaths to COVID-19. Of these 14 new deaths, 12 occurred among mostly elderly residents of long-term care facilities. LTC deaths amount to 78 percent of total death attributed to the disease. The median age of decedents in the last weekly COVID-19 report — the one dated July 9 — is 83.6.

I don’t think the hospitalizations attributed to the disease would be noticeable if it weren’t for the daily tracking. The authorities are sustaining the panic with reports of new cases among a demographic that skews increasingly younger. Sorry, and sorry for repeating myself, but we really ought to be able to look out for ourselves at this point.
