(Natural News) In the last flu season, the regular (influenza) flu killed a little over 34,000 Americans, according to CDC statistics. As of today, the coronavirus has now killed over 69,000 Americans — more than double the deaths from the seasonal flu for an entire year.

That means the coronavirus has killed more Americans in just two months than the regular flu might kill in two (typical) years.

No, bro, this isn’t “just the flu.”

With 69,492 deaths and 185,047 recoveries tracked so far for the USA, the Case Fatality Rate for the coronavirus in the USA now stands at 27%, or 27 out of 100 people dying, while 73 out of 100 people are recovering. (SOURCE: Worldometers.info, accessed May 4th, 2020)

In contrast, the Case Fatality Rate for the regular flu is below 0.1%, meaning fewer than 1 in 1,000 people diagnosed with the regular flu end up dying from it.

The Case Fatality Rate for the coronavirus in Michigan is approaching 10%

At the same time, Michigan has recorded 4,049 deaths out of 43,754 confirmed infections. Using just those raw numbers, you might say the Case Fatality Rate for the coronavirus in Michigan is 9.3%, which is already 93 times higher than the regular flu.

However, many of the confirmed infections are asymptomatic, which means they don’t qualify as “cases.” A “case” is a person who is symptomatic and has been diagnosed with the infection. That’s the definition for the seasonal flu, the coronavirus, and all other infectious diseases. Asymptomatic carriers are never counted as part of the “cases.”

So in reality, the number of symptomatic cases in Michigan is below 43,754, which means the Case Fatality Rate is actually higher than 9.3%. It’s almost certainly above 10%, which turns out to be a recurring Case Fatality Rate for the world.

A Financial Times analysis published last week found that out of about 3 million confirmed infections worldwide, the number of excess fatalities from any cause was around 300,000. That’s roughly a 10% Case Fatality Rate, which is 100 times higher than the Case Fatality Rate of the regular flu.

In truth, the real fatality rate for the coronavirus is even higher, given that fewer people are dying from traffic accidents, work injuries and other causes of catastrophic death, meaning the “excess mortality” figure doesn’t capture the full extent of the coronavirus deaths around the world.

In rough terms, it’s accurate to state that the Case Fatality Rate for the regular flu is 0.1%, while the Case Fatality Rate for the coronavirus is 10%. That means 1 in 10 people who become symptomatic and are diagnosed with covid-19 end up dying from it.

And that means the coronavirus is two orders of magnitude more deadly than the flu, which is why we’re already seeing twice the number of flu deaths now caused by the coronavirus in just two months. It’s also why the coronavirus is so incredibly dangerous and needs to be taken seriously, or new outbreaks will quickly overwhelm society as regions attempt to reopen their economies.

CDC warning about new surge starting in June

The coronavirus is just getting started, you see. And the CDC now projects a new surge in infections and deaths by early June, where they say the nation will see 3,000 deaths per day and 200,000 new infections per day. Those projections are likely based in part, we suspect, on the CDC observing thousands of people crowding the beaches of Texas and Florida, mostly refusing to wear masks, acting like #covidiots who are delusional about the danger they face.

The coronavirus laughs at those who fail to take it seriously. It will come surging back with a vengeance, doubling every 3-4 days once again, ultimately forcing cities and state into a new round of lockdowns (or, if left completely unmitigated, it will cause millions of deaths in the USA alone).

We disagree with the CDC’s timeline, however, as we believe the second wave won’t surge back until August. The CDC thinks it will happen in June, but it’s fair criticism to note that our projections have consistently been too conservative, even if they seem outrageous to most people at the time we initially release them.

Either way, it’s clear that complacency will lead to catastrophe as we have warned again and again. Soon, it will be clear which states will successfully navigate this pandemic vs. which states will be buried by it.

Follow his videos, podcasts, websites and science projects at the links below.

Mike Adams serves as the founding editor of NaturalNews.com and the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation. Adams is also highly proficient in running liquid chromatography, ion chromatography and mass spectrometry time-of-flight analytical instrumentation. He has also achieved numerous laboratory breakthroughs in the programming of automated liquid handling robots for sample preparation and external standards prep.

The U.S. patent office has awarded Mike Adams patent NO. US 9526751 B2 for the invention of “Cesium Eliminator,” a lifesaving invention that removes up to 95% of radioactive cesium from the human digestive tract. Adams has pledged to donate full patent licensing rights to any state or national government that needs to manufacture the product to save human lives in the aftermath of a nuclear accident, disaster, act of war or act of terrorism. He has also stockpiled 10,000 kg of raw material to manufacture Cesium Eliminator in a Texas warehouse, and plans to donate the finished product to help save lives in Texas when the next nuclear event occurs. No independent scientist in the world has done more research on the removal of radioactive elements from the human digestive tract.

Adams is a person of color whose ancestors include Africans and American Indians. He is of Native American heritage, which he credits as inspiring his “Health Ranger” passion for protecting life and nature against the destruction caused by chemicals, heavy metals and other forms of pollution.

Adams is the author of the world’s first book that published ICP-MS heavy metals analysis results for foods, dietary supplements, pet food, spices and fast food. The book is entitled Food Forensics and is published by BenBella Books.

In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition. Through the non-profit CWC, Adams also launched Nutrition Rescue, a program that donates essential vitamins to people in need. Click here to see some of the CWC success stories.

With a background in science and software technology, Adams is the original founder of the email newsletter technology company known as Arial Software. Using his technical experience combined with his love for natural health, Adams developed and deployed the content management system currently driving NaturalNews.com. He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power SCIENCE.naturalnews.com, a massive research resource featuring over 10 million scientific studies.

Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply. He has also exposed “strange fibers” found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health “gurus,” dangerous “detox” products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.

Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.
