COVID-19: Panic Porn about the apparently Less Bad Delta Variant

What would you conclude about the Delta (Indian) variant of COVID-19, were you to foolishlly believe the “news”, where your opinions are always assigned to you?

Horowitz: The Delta deception: New COVID variant might be less deadly

by Matt Taibbi., 25 June 2021. Emphasis added.

The headlines are screaming with panic over the impending doom of the Delta variant hitting the U.S.:

...

And of course, no list would be complete without the headline from Dr. Fauci yesterday, stating that the "Delta variant is the greatest threat in the US."

...

As you can see, the Delta variant has a 0.1% case fatality rate (CFR) out of 31,132 Delta sequence infections confirmed by investigators. That is the same rate as the flu and is much lower than the CFR for the ancestral strain or any of the other variants. And as we know, the CFR is always higher than the infection fatality rate (IFR), because many of the mildest and asymptomatic infections go undocumented, while the confirmed cases tend to have a bias toward those who are more evidently symptomatic.

In other words, Delta is literally the flu with a CFR identical to it. This is exactly what every respiratory pandemic has done through history: morphed into more transmissible and less virulent form that forces the other mutations out since you get that one. Nothing about masks, lockdowns, or experimental shots did this...

...

WIND: “follow the experts”? What if they are mostly intellectual crooks, political poseurs?

The data is often suspect but for those who want to “follow the data”, the delta variant looks like the best thing to happen with COVID in a while.

In other words, Delta is literally the flu with a CFR identical to it. This is exactly what every respiratory pandemic has done through history: morphed into more transmissible and less virulent form that forces the other mutations out since you get that one...

If there is other data, I’d like to see it, but if what is presented is accurate, the Delta variant is in effect, very good news versus what we’ve had so far.

Even the emotionally hysterical head of the CDC thinks things are looking better in effect.
