Scott Atlas, former director of neuroradiology at Stanford University’s former medical center, said Monday that there is currently too much focus on one aspect of coronavirus statistics, but not enough on the other.
Atlas, a senior researcher at the Hoover Institution at Stanford University, said in the story that the case is particularly concerned about the increase in cases, especially where the governor has been reinstated or further restrictions have been imposed.
“When we focus on more cases, it doesn’t really matter, only who is the case. We know that the mortality rate for people under the age of 70 is 0.04%, which is less than or equal to seasonal influenza. “
“The case itself should not and will never be the focus. This is just the tragic consequence of the case. When we examine the cases in each state, the vast majority are young, healthy people.”
He said that in the newer hotspots of Florida and Texas, the median age of infected people varies from 30 to 40 years old-as long as those more difficult people can recover from any other virus or disease, these outbreaks The significance is very small.
Atlas said that what is important is the prevalence of high-risk groups-whether the treatment capacity still exists and whether the mortality rate of the virus is rising.
He said that despite the rising trend of infections in various states, the death rate of coronavirus is actually declining, not bad news in this regard.

“I realize that we have to wait to see this story, but now, the case has continued for three weeks, and we have not increased. In fact, our mortality rate has declined. If you want to fully recover and recover from it, then you will Suffering from this disease-this must be understood. For younger healthy people, the risk of this disease is not high.”
In Texas, the government has ordered bars and other venues to close again, including mitigation measures.
