Population of Israel: 9,199,700
Deaths from cigarette smoking induced cancer since March ’20: approximately 4,000
That’s 1,000 deaths out of 9,000,000 people in over 7 months. It’s not as bad as NYC.
PleaseStayCalm, apples and orangutans…. You count only deaths and omit infections, in which EY has one of the world’s highest rates in population. You overlook the two-month lockdown, without which the death count would have been much, much higher. And you liken it to smoking-induced cancer, which one can more-or-less avoid by not smoking. Tell us how do to the same with COVID-19. You do deserve credit (not) for not blaming it on Bill Gates.
Thanks again, PleaseStayCalm!
But WHY oh why are they closing down the economy and the schools???
So much suffering!
And in the USA, the government CDC (Center for Disease Control) has published a study that 90(!)% of those who are listed as corona deaths had an average of 2.6 OTHER comorbidities. Meaning only c.10,000 died from the novel corona. Nor to minimize the fact that 10,000 people died, but that is no reason to close down an economy and a school system, from kids who are not affected and do not transmit the disease!!
In USA, I truly believe there are only two reasons:
(1) the cost of a vaccine will make BILLION$ for big pharma.
(2) keeping the economy closed makes it harder for Trump to be Re-elected.
But why Israel? I really don’t get it!
Time for Gamzu to solely focus his efforts on outlawing these despicable large protests & demonstrations, if he is really serious about curtailing Corona rather than curtailing the Religious.
