"Imagine my muddah! Yo, I wanna' see some serious co-morbidities, capiche?!"
The thing about Peak Stupidity is, we don't subscribe to that whole not nice to say "I told you so!" dogma. This one is doozy of an opportunity to exercise our lack of adherence to that. From a (pretty cool from a first glance at other headlines) site called Summit News, there is an article about some interesting Italian Kung Flu news. It tells us the Italian Institute of Health Drastically Reduces Its Official COVID Death Toll Number..
They do mean "DRASTIC", let me tell ya':
The Italian Higher Institute of Health has drastically reduced the country’s official COVID death toll number by over 97 per cent after changing the definition of a fatality to someone who died from COVID rather than with COVID.Hey, not MY bolding. I didn't do it. Well, sure, this just shows us that our EXPERTS are human too. The SCIENCE? It's human too. 97% is still an A right? Oh, 97% off is not, OK.
Italian newspaper Il Tempo reports that the Institute has revised downward the number of people who have died from COVID rather than with COVID from 130,000 to under 4,000.
Of the of the 130,468 deaths registered as official COVID deaths since the start of the pandemic, only 3,783 are directly attributable to the virus alone.We panic deniers are still not outta the
“All the other Italians who lost their lives had from between one and five pre-existing diseases. Of those aged over 67 who died, 7% had more than three co-morbidities, and 18% at least two,” writes Young.
Despite the change, Italy may yet take the decision to make the COVID-19 vaccine mandatory, although how such a scheme would be imposed remains unspecified.Oh! Thinka my muddah! Looks like we're still gonna need a wartime consigliere. String along that Peak Stupidity guy for a while, Christopher. You give him a nice calzone, some of Carmela's pasta, and gallon bottle of Lambrusco once in a while, eh? He likes that shrink too, occasionally, what's her name, Jennifer. Next time a bunch of face diapers fall offa da truck somewheres in Hoboken, give Peak Stupidity summa that action. Dis ain't over!
