Inane Disinformation - Amazingly Stupid !

 A friend sent this to me.

        "​UCLA And Stanford Study Finds That For The Average

        50-64 Year Old The Chances Of Dying From COVID-19

        Are Just 1 In 19 MILLION... - Now Read That Again"

I read it again. Just 1 in 19 MILLION !  Hard to believe! The source is a video 
prepared by One American News Network. 

To show how stupid this is look at the table below prepared by the CDC. We will use the numbers from the 55-64 group, which is five years less than the group the OAN Video used. 

CDC says there are 42,272,636 people in this age group. 

According to OAN, there would only be 2 or 3 people dead from Covid-19 from this group. (42,272,636/19,000,000).

CDC says there are 22,254 dead from Covid-19 from this group. 

So how many people listen or read this drivel and decide they don't have to be careful about the disease since there is very little risk?  And then die?  

A friend of mine laughed and said that there is no loss to the human gene pool when people this slow follow this crap and then die from it. But I think that is wrong. We should try to protect them from themselves.  But it is difficult.

Mind boggling!  Sad!
