Once again Willis Eschenbach of WUWT arrives on the scene with some interesting facts on the “Italian Job”.
Only 4% of the decedents were under 60 years of age. The average age of death was 79 years.
More than that, of the 355 people in the study of 2003 cases, only 3 did not have a co-morbidity. Which means almost all had another underlying serious illness. The Italian study cleverly distinguished between dying FROM the virus and WITH the virus.
Willis also showed that in northern Italy the disease was NOSOCOMIAL, from Medicine! This means the virus was in a hospital in Northern Italy, by some means, which is why it exploded so rapidly.
A very good read indeed to give us some understanding of this not so dangerous virus.
