Interesting take on why kids are not getting really sick. Important to note, the study does not address infection rates, spread or safety. Just that kids do not get very sick or die from the virus.

Sorry, the glaring sheen of the general ignorance above blinded my ability to actual see through the rhetoric.

The US death toll has now hit 200,000, not 12,000. 121,404 was the 2017 deaths in the US from Alzheimers.

Just to delineate trolls from adults, here is the CDC site that these Alzheimers numbers come from.

Again, this is an adult conversation. Maybe your smaller basket thread would be a better place to just make stuff up.

You know you are not supposed to feed the trolls right ? I feel certain 12k was not a typo but an intentional fallacy.

Lol....the max seating capacity of the Metrodome was 64,121....making your made up death toll of 12,000 FAR from 10%. Not to mention the Metrodome is long gone, being demolished in 2014.

Dang, you are not even very good at trolling.

The demolition greatly increased its capacity.

It's the 94% fallacy. Remember that one, a few weeks back?

^Yup. As if many/most deaths don't have multiple contributing factors.

It's like saying: "He had stage 4 cancer and high blood pressure. Cancer didn't kill him!"

12,000 seems like the number of silly and debunked Dismisser tactics in last 6 months. Projections are for the total to double.
Still hoping for a vaccine to cure that affliction, but not optimistic.

Worse than that. Most of the other conditions on the death certificates were results of COVID, like pneumonia or hear failure. Like saying that someone didn’t die because of a car crash, but from brain trauma.

Don’t make it easy for the idiot to get the attention he craves. Would you bother to refute flat earth crap? Just ignore, do us all a favor.
