Dear Ones,

The 2017-2018 Influenza-related mortality rate in United States = 0.11 percent, which is 1/10 of 1 percent of the United States population.

The 2018-2019 Influenza-related mortality rate in United States = 0.06 percent, which about half as many deaths as in the prior year’s flu season.

Combined deaths from flu, pneumonia and COVID-19 from the when COVID-19 arrived at the beginning of February to the end of October 2020 were 0.11 percent, which is only slightly more than 1/10 of 1 percent of the United States population.

These latter statistics are 3 months short of a year of data. The mortality rate since COVID-19 arrived is running ‘neck in neck’ with the data for the 2017-2018 pre-COVID flu season here in the United States, but about twice that for 2018-2019.

At the end of February 2020 we will have a comparison for a full year of COVID-19 plus influenza-related mortalities.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars

Recent Trends in COVID Cases and Deaths in the United States and California

Imaged on 31 October 2020; published on 1 November 2020; by Alice B. Clagett

Dear Ones,

Here are recent trends in COVID cases and deaths in the United States, as compared to California. For my analysis of these trends, please see the caption below the image …

Image: Recent Trends in COVID Cases and Deaths in the United States and California,” by Alice B. Clagett, 31 October 2020, CC BY-SA 4.0 … DESCRIPTION: For the United States, I note that new COVID cases have greatly increased this autumn (as expected because of the flu season) but that new COVID deaths have plateaued at less than half what they were in the Spring of 2020. That may mean that the COVID virus has become less deadly, as was the case with the Influenza virus after the first few years. It might also mean that those most susceptible to COVID were first hit and passed on because of it. Or both might be true: COVID may be less deadly now, and as well, the most vulnerable sector of the United States population may, in the main, already have passed on. In comparing the California graphs to the United States graphs, I note that new California cases are now down-trending, whereas new United States cases are up-trending. New California deaths rose to a new high in late Summer, but are now steadily declining. Comparatively speaking, both the new Cases and the new Deaths graphs bode well for California … CREDIT: Rough sketch based on New York Times statistics.

The Pragmatic Prophet: Google Apocalypse?

Written and published on 25 September 2020 by Alice B. Clagett

Dear Ones,

THE PRAGMATIC PROPHET SAYS: Could be the East Coast internet will become separate from that of the West Coast, if United States federal government decentralization continues as I predict. It might be good to get financial records offline and onto a flash drive or onto CDs, in case the national versions of Google and HR Block online should begin to fail.

As well, I figure if I plan my day around non-internet activities, then Google outages may not be too important to me.

How Many Californians Are COVID-Safe? Here Is What the Pragmatic Prophet Says …

Written and published on 1 September 2020 by Alice B. Clagett

Dear Ones,

How many people here in California are COVID-safe? The figure is changing rapidly, and improving every day.

HOW MANY CALIFORNIANS ARE COVID-SAFE TODAY?

As of today, there have been 712,276 tested cases of COVID-19 in California, according to the Los Angeles Times. Only those people are being tested who exhibit COVID symptoms.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) currently holds that many more people … maybe even 40 percent of all the people in the United States who get COVID … are asymptomatic.

If 712,276 people so far are symptomatic and tested, and these are 60% of the people in California who have gotten COVID, then the total number who have had COVID in California would be 712,276 (symptomatic) divided by .6 = 1,187,127 people (symptomatic or asymptomatic).

Of these, 13,018 have died. Thus the total number of people who are now COVID-safe in California is 1,187,127 people who have had COVID, less 13,018 COVID deaths (as of today, according to the Los Angeles Times). That would be about 1,174,109 people … over a million … who are COVID-safe in California as of today.

HOW MANY CALIFORNIANS WILL BE COVID-SAFE IN TIME?

The population of California is 39.5 million. If deaths from COVID continue at the same rate as before, and the COVID vaccine is not made available, as hoped, this fall, then as the pandemic runs its course, how many California will end up COVID-safe? Here are my figures …

x / 39.5 million people in California = 1,174,109 COVID-safe people in California today / 1,187,127 Californians who have had COVID

x = (1,174,109 / 1,187,127) x 39.5 million

x = 39,066,844 Californians who will be COVID-safe after the pandemic ends.

How Likely Is It I Will See a Person Pass On of COVID in California? . Here Is What the Pragmatic Prophet Says.

Written and published on 11 August 2020, by Alice B. Clagett

Dear Ones,

I read in the Los Angeles Times that 99 people passed on of COVID in California yesterday (which seems like a pretty scary number, to me) …

Link: “Tracking the Coronavirus in California,” in the Los Angeles Times …  https://www.latimes.com/projects/california-coronavirus-cases-tracking-outbreak/ ..

I have been seeing these pretty high statistics for some time, here in California. Today I wondered how likely it would be I might see a person pass on of COVID, so I crunched the numbers. Here is what I found out …

There are about 41 million people in California, per Google.

(99 COVID deaths yesterday) divided by (41 million California population) times 100 (to get percent) = 0.0024 percent, which is to say, 0.0024 per 100 people.

That decimal point is way too small, so I recalculated for the number of deaths per 10 million people, like this …

(99 COVID deaths) divided by (41 million California population) times 10,000,000 (to get number of deaths per 10M) = 24 COVID deaths per 10M people. I guess I would have had to see 10 million people yesterday in order to see 24 people pass on of COVID?

But I don’t see more than 10 or 20 people on a usual day.

I thought to recalculate how many California people it would have taken to have 1 COVID death in the group yesterday. I figured it like this …

(99 COVID deaths) divided by (41 million California population) = (1 COVID death) divided by (‘x’ number of California people)

99 / 41,000,000 = 1/x
x = 41,000,000 /99 = 414,141 people

So I might expect to see 1 COVID death yesterday had I been amongst 414,141 people.

But I only see 10 or 20 people daily. Under lockdown conditions it seems to me I might never see a COVID death. That would explain why things seem so normal here in the San Fernando Valley, I guess.

Let’s say I took a public bus to work and served food to visitors at a fast food restaurant drive-in window. How many people would I have met yesterday in that case?

Let’s say I was one of 20 people on the public bus going to work, and one of 20 people on the bus on the way home. That would be 40 people encountered on the bus.

I see here that a fast food restaurant serves about 300 customers a day …

Link: “9 Fast Food Stats That Will Blow Your Mind,” in Fox Business … https://www.foxbusiness.com/markets/9-fast-food-stats-that-will-blow-your-mind ..

Say there are 3 customers per car, and I am one of four servers in a 24-hour period. That might mean the fast food restaurant serves 100 cars a day (which is 300 customers divided by 3 people per car). I am one of four servers, so I might serve a fourth of the 100 cars daily. That would be 25 cars, and 25 drivers that I encounter daily.

Then there are the 10 people at home and on my own street, neighbors and friends.

So the total people encountered by a fast food server daily in California would be 40 on public transit, 25 cars served at the fast food drive-up window, and 10 people at home or on my street.

That would be a total 75 people I meet daily as a fast food server. As figured above, there is one daily COVID death in California per 414,141 people. That would be a great many more than the 75 people I would meet as a fast food server. So, I am guessing, the likelihood I might see a COVID death while serving fast food is still quite low.

I just wondered about this, as the Los Angeles Times daily COVID-19 statistics seem pretty scary to me. I guess we are not that likely to see anyone passing on of COVID during the entire course of the pandemic … which, to me, is very good news, in a way.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars

Shop Till You Drop Dead of COVID? Here Is What the Pragmatic Prophet Says!

The ‘word from on high’ is: HVAC in retail stores across Los Angeles may be causing customers to catch COVID-19.

I urgently ask Mayor Garcetti and Governor Newsom to mandate that California retailers sanitize the air filters in their HVAC systems daily.

I urge that President Trump propose similar measures to managers of high-rise buildings nationwide, with emphasis on New York and New Jersey.

Water Your Garden with Bath Water? Here Is What the Pragmatic Prophet Says …

Dear Ones,

Water prices are so high here in Los Angeles these days the wild surmise goes round that the LA Department of Water and Power has been purchased by the mob to grow marijuana in the sewage treatment facilities, and that we homeowners are footing the tab! What with the COVID lockdown, there are no bar tabs to be footed today. Wilder urban legends have gone the rounds, over the years. Who can say?

Until the truth be laid bare, water in LA is costing up to $600 a month for a person with a backyard lawn and a modest home in the ‘burbs. How are we to afford to water even a container vegetable garden when water prices are so high? Here is what I came up with; it is cost effective, offers a little daily exercise, and feels just right for sustainable living …

I thought if I could find a very good stopper for my bathtub, and tough, flat-bottom buckets such as are used to feed horses in horse stalls, then I could scoop up the water in the tub after a shower and use it to water the vegetable garden.

I needed a water-tight drain stopper for the bathtub, and that was hard to come by. I found that, because of the age of my house, the tub drain I needed was not a standard size sold in the local hardware stores. Online I found 3 sizes of drain stoppers, and none of them fit the bathtub drain.

Finally I found at Amazon … http://www.amazon.com … a multi size bathtub stopper (1-1/8 inch to 1-7/8 inch). The brand was Silyconyc, it came in a two pack, and I found it offered a firm seal at the largest size graduation. If you cannot readily get a snug drain stopper for your bathtub, then the multi size drain stopper may work for you as well.

The next thing was to find durable buckets that would conform to the flat bottom of the tub. That was a little easier, as feed stores and Amazon sell ‘flat back’ plastic feed buckets with strong metal handles. I picked two buckets, each with two-gallon capacity, as very large buckets full of water would be too much for me to carry.

It turned out the buckets I picked were perfect for the job. One side was flat, so that the bucket would lie flat when the handle was attached to the wall of a horse stall. That flat side, laid against the bottom of the tub, allowed me to scoop up almost all the water in the tub.

I placed the partly full buckets on an old towel next to the tub just before taking the water outside, so that water would not drip through the house. This has proven a no muss, no fuss way to water my container garden using shower water.

In addition, I keep a regular bucket in my kitchen sink for dishwashing and daily use that water to keep up those outdoor plants that are not able to survive with the amount of landscape water allowed Los Angeles homeowners by the LA Department of Water and Power.

Hope these tips help green the gardens of LA!

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars

COVID-19: Two Possible Timelines for End of Pandemic . by Alice B. Clagett

Written on 12 July 2020; published on 13 July 2020

  • FIRST TIMELINE: DEVELOPMENT OF COVID-19 VACCINE
  • SECOND TIMELINE: SIMILAR TO SPANISH FLU EPIDEMIC OF 1918

Dear Ones,

Here are two possible timelines for the end of the COVID-19 pandemic …

FIRST TIMELINE: DEVELOPMENT OF COVID-19 VACCINE

I read in a BBC article that a vaccine for COVID-19 is expected to become available in mid-2021. That would be about a year and a half after the beginning of the pandemic ….

Link: “Coronavirus Vaccine: When Will We Have One? by James Gallagher, at BBC News, 8 July 2020 … https://www.bbc.com/news/health-51665497 ..

If that were to prove true, and if everyone were to be vaccinated next year, then people will not be running into active virus as much in the people they meet.

For those who have had the virus, and have built up their immunity, that would be good, as their immune systems would not need to fight off reinfection through exposure to other people’s active viruses while working or shopping.

It seems to me that getting flu this winter (in 2020) might make it harder for the body to keep up a strong COVID immune response, simply because it might be ‘fighting on two fronts’ at once. But if there is a vaccine available mid-2021, then that year’s winter flu season would likely offer less of a challenge to COVID-susceptible people.

SECOND TIMELINE: SIMILAR TO SPANISH FLU EPIDEMIC OF 1918

The deadly Spanish flu epidemic of 1918 lasted 2 years and 2 months; I think that might be a timeline to plan for should there be no viable vaccine. That would put surcease at April or May 2022; quite some while away, but, I feel, well worth keeping in mind.

It might not seem so, but there will be an end to the pandemic one day. That is the history of pandemics down through time.

God bless you all and keep you safe. May you have plenty to eat, and a good roof over your head, and may each day present you with a new joy in His great Creation.

COVID-19 and the USA: Is the Death Count Higher or Lower Than Expected?

Dear Ones,

Given the press on the state of COVID-19 in California since the Fourth of July, I checked whether the greater picture for the pandemic in California, and in the United States overall, is grim or reasonable. Here is what I found out …

There is a question whether deaths due to COVID-19 are being misclassified on the high side in the United States currently, similar to the issue they were being misclassified on the low side in March 2020, at the beginning of the pandemic. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) are aware of this issue, but cannot yet quantitate it, as there are state-by-state issues regarding standardization of statistical reporting.

Thus it seems reasonable to look at overall deaths in the United States overall, since the beginning of the pandemic in February 2020, and also state-by-state. That way we can ascertain whether overall deaths (including COVID-19, flu, pneumonia, and every other cause of death) are higher or lower than expected.

I turned to the CDC for the data. They say deaths in the United States, from whatever causes, are 4 percent greater than expected deaths for the period from 1 February to 4 July 2020. Ball-parking that, we might reasonably assume deaths from COVID-19 to have contributed most of that excess. That is the approach to the data taken as a given by the press and by all levels of  government in the United States, from city government, to state government, to government at the national level.

On the other hand, it could be that there is a range of numbers within which expected deaths are tallied, Taking that range into account, it is possible, from a multiple year perspective, that COVID-19 may not have contributed at all to this year’s excess deaths. It could be we are on the far end of the expectable range of deaths in 2020, and in the coming years there will be less deaths than expectable. In other words, excess expectable deaths this year might not be due to COVID-19 at all. That is the contrarian approach to the data.

From the stance of personal health and safety, it might be good to know which states have the highest numbers of deaths greater than expected since February of this year. We could take a look at deaths due to COVID or whatever other causes; that would be a figure beyond debate.

I see from the below chart that some states have had a notably higher percent of expected deaths than the United States in general, during the course of the COVID-19 pandemic. These are Arizona (108%), Colorado (109%), District of Columbia (115%), Illinois (115%), Louisiana (107%), Maryland (116%), Massachusetts (123%), Michigan (112%), Minnesota (105%),  New Jersey (142%), New York (124%), New York City (203%), and Rhode Island (106%).

From this list the standouts in terms of having deaths greater than expected, from highest to lowest, are New York City (203%), New Jersey (142%), New York (124%), Massachusetts (123%), Maryland (116%), District of Columbia (115%), Illinois (115%), and Michigan (112%).

This table has the data in it …
