A couple of weeks ago, I reviewed data on Covid and most folks totally missed what I was saying. I am going to start with unemployment to show my point that the economic restrictions and lockdown did more damage than the virus itself.
Of top ten states, 100% GOP governors, 72% of the top 25, 65% of states at national average or lower. Democrats had 65% of states in bottom half of LOWER half and 91% of the bottom 11.
The result GOP states unemployment were significantly lower!!!!!! Overall 4.4 for GOP states and 6.4 Democratic states!!!! We viewed GOP and Democratic in two ways plus we compared bigger GOP and Democratic states.
Now there is very little difference in death per capital when all studies looked at. We are talking 6 per 100,000.
Bottom line, GOP states had a SIGNIFICANTLY LESS UNEMPLOYMENT BUT THERE WAS VERY LITTLE DIFFERENCE DIFFERENT IN DEATH PER CAPITA!!! END OF PART ONE
Wilfred Reiley has done three studies on lockdowns and found the following:
1. Unemployment in both non lockdown and Republican states lower than lockdown and Democratic states.
2. Lower bankruptcy in non-lockdown states per capita More below
3. Lower death per capita for GOP and non-lockdown states but no significant difference.
4. Blacks were more likely to die in Democratic states and lockdown states. Reilly looked at different variables including density which he rated a significant variable.
Texas is higher when adjusted. Average age of major states
Red states have slightly older population.
When comparing major states, these states were similar in demographics but Republican states had slightly more blacks and Hispanics.
Lockdown failures and economic restrictions failed to stem the infections and there was very little difference in death per capita regardless of variables used. Unemployment were significantly lower in Republican states so showing the failure of the lockdown
Republican states had significantly lower unemployment. This should show policy makers that our economic shortcomings are not due to the virus but to economic plans and plan to combat the virus.
School children are seeing setback in their education and many younger people are being killed by drug overdose and suicide, and many are not getting treated for chronic diseases or screened. There are studies showing that many have died or will died prematurely.
These deaths totals exceeds death by Corona virus. Our policies have been a disaster and have not stem infection but added significant damage to society.
