Covid-19 Cases And Deaths Surge In Eastern Europe

Western Europe is seeing fewer deaths than in the spring, despite a surge in cases of Covid-19 - but Eastern Europe is suffering more deaths than ever before. This map shows average deaths in September and October compared to those in March, April and May, with red countries such as the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Ukraine seeing more autumn deaths, and green ones such as Britain, France and Spain having a lower death toll during the second wave 

 * Eastern Europe escaped more lightly during the first wave, but is now seeing the most dramatic second waves 
 * Czech Republic now has Europe's highest infection rate while Montenegro is seeing fastest growth in deaths 
 * Deaths in many Eastern European countries are outstripping those in first wave, unlike in UK, Spain or France 

Many Eastern European countries which locked down early and escaped lightly from the first wave of Covid-19 are now being battered by the second wave, in a reversal of Europe's East-West divide. 

Eastern Europe is seeing cases spike by up to 2,000 per cent compared to the spring, suggesting that countries which kept the virus at bay in March and April merely postponed the onslaught rather than avoiding it altogether. 

More worryingly, while death tolls in Britain, France and Spain have been more muted in the second wave, many countries in Eastern Europe are seeing more fatalities than ever before - raising fears for their vulnerable health systems. 

WNU Editor: My relatives in Ukraine are telling me that this second wave is incredibly deadly. A good percentage of those who ae dying are in their 20s. 30s. and 40s. My aunt and her family live in Lviv, and they are all currently suffering from Covid-19. They have not gone to the hospital (not possible anyway because they are filled), and they are going to try to ride this out. My relatives in Russia are telling me that there are a lot of cases, and the streets are empty. Everyone is basically hunkering down to ride this out.

Hmmm. The young. Not quite what the "experts" led us to believe and believed themselves. Time for a new round of faces on the TV, computer screens, devices, and what have you.
I wonder whatever happened to that hydroxy... and zinc material? A few months ago there were a few articles on it's use in India and a couple of other countries. Doctors in those countries testifying and so forth. Good results if you had come down with the virus. A few days and you were cured. Over the counter. Hmmm.

The lockdowns cause this,herd immunity is the only way.

Remdesivir has not been shown to be effective.

Hydroxychloroquine is to be used in the early stages. If you use it in the later stages, forget about it. Learn you metabolic pathways. But then trolling would be no fun now would it.

Now the VA did a study. The study was rigged. They gave it to people already on death's door. Is it a shock the patients died? Now what did proponents of Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) say? Use it as a prophylactic and when symptoms just start. They did not claim it worked in the late stages

Spain still uses HCQ

Have you heard of mass die offs in Africa of HCQ users? Why is that?

You wrote "Hmmm. The young. Not quite what the "experts" led us to believe and believed themselves. " like the schmuck troll fuck you are.

Where in the Daily Mail did it mention the young at all. I did a word search. Maybe you should do one schmuck.

I did notice that Sweden is green. Herd immunity? Sweden did not ruin their economy with lockdowns.

Since you are throwing shit like a zoo monkey how about this.

Pathogens usually attenuate as time goes on and become less deadly. So why is the virus becoming more deadly? Maybe the Chinese are doing another "12 Monkeys" strafing run?

To get to another host a pathogen cannot be so deadly that it kills its current host before it jumps to a new host. So generally a pathogen get less deadly as time goes on even it it gets more transmissible.

Anyway 3:47, you have been a really good fuck.

Young is clearly in response to the editors note.

I'll stick with my earlier comment. War torn kleptocracy. Looking at age is just looking at one factor. Call it is x1. Y is whether a person died or not. It is 0 or 1. You could add a variables such as X2 and X3 to represent obesity or diabetes.

If you are just going to look at one variable and ignore others, I am going to call it it bullshit.

China fucks up Ukraine and it neighbors like Russia up enough, maybe they think East Siberia is theirs.

But hey 6:08 I love ya. Keep pushing that it affects young and old alike equally. I mean I have not heard a good children's story in a long while.
