Gotta Pump Up Those Numbers

Here in St. Louis, Missouri, in the City portion of the metro area, we have had, thus far, from when they declared the “emergency,” a total of 534 people die with Covid.

Notice that I say “with,” because many of them had serious, underlying, TERMINAL factors at play.

In a population of approximately 319,000 people, we’re seeing an overall mortality rate “with” the ‘rona of 0.167%.

For comparison, St. Louis is currently showing a homicide rate of 0.113% for the same time period, but I suspect it may catch up with the ‘Rona in a few months.
