I decided to rather open a new thread to discuss your ludicrous assertions in the other thread, that using the current USA stats to advise South African's about how to react or treat this virus, is 100% correct
"While there may be slight differences between populations re deaths per age group your figures are complete nonsense.. "
"DA please try to come to grips with the science oak. Chances are you could if you were not so lazy."
Boy are you one seriously stupid guy....the only lazy one here is you Beeno… and for a qualified chartered accountant, you seriously don't do your profession any justice dude.
You want to use the USA figures to convince us what the actual "correct" death rate percentages are for ages.... using science?
Ok, so let me get this very clear then:
We don't have the same financial resources as the USA
We don't have the necessary numbers of vital hospital equipment, to handle this epidemic, that the USA does
We don't have the necessary medicine to treat everyone like the USA does
We have nowhere near the same daily hygiene practices in South Africa that the USA does... any health care is better than the horseshit we have here, except if you are lucky to have a very good medical aid, which I fortunately have.
Millions in South Africa have no access to immediate water.....so cannot even wash their hands once a day, never mind multiple times a day.
We don't have enough qualified nurses or doctors here in South Africa
We don't have the credible and professional advisors in South Africa that the USA does
We don't have the same public health systems in South Africa
We don't have the same public transport systems here in South Africa
We have different belief systems here in SA.... millions still believe a witchdoctor will cure them
We have different ancestry beliefs.... millions still believe the sangoma's are talking to their forefathers to heal them
We have different medicinal beliefs..... millions still believe that "Muti" will kill any virus they have
We have millions and millions of people living and sharing tin shacks with 8 and more people, which totally exacerbates the spread of this virus in South Africa....
We have far more people with comorbidities, population percentage wise, in South Africa, such as Aids, TB, Malaria, Malnutrtion, poverty.... to name just a few
We have a R60 billion a year taxi industry which just says a big "fuck you" to the government, and continues to 100% load their taxi's to full capacity.... to prevent loss of revenue.... and if not, they just shoot and kill other transporters
We have millions of people every day.... standing on top of each other for Sassa, UIF, food grants, child grants...… spreading the virus
We have a R60 billion a year taxi industry which just says a big "fuck you" to the government, and continues to cross all provincial borders illegally... so that their taxi's don't lose revenue....spreading the virus throughout the country.
Now testing in South Africa is being restricted in some places to only people over the age of 55.... reducing all numbers of results
South Africa is also very fast heading to being in the top 5 in the world, with total confirmed cases...…. and we were 32nd place in May..... we are now 13th...… we have doubled our total national confirmed Covid case numbers, in the last 14 days alone.
I ask again, are you and your family walking around every day with no masks on, in public spaces.......
This is just "some" of the information that is available...… and you want to use the USA stats to preach utter shit here?
You are a fucking joke
