A Quote by Jay Bhattacharya

PageQuote
COVID-19/Pathology“There are now 50-some high-quality zero prevalence studies, says it has a 95% survival rate for people who are 70 and older. For people under 70, it's 99.95% survival. It's much less deadly for people who are under 70, 99.95. And for children, it's frankly, the flu is worse. We've had more flu deaths among children this year than COVID deaths, just in terms of mortality.”
