**Pres. Trump has tested COVID-positive… here are his medical odds.**

================

Last week, the CDC updated its so-called Pandemic Planning Scenarios.

English translation: They revealed the key parameter settings for their “Current Best Estimate” of COVID outcomes.

Buried in the details (and minimally reported by the MSM) were IFRs — “infection fatality rates” … the odds of dying of you get COVID-infected.

=============

Here’s the key exhibit from the CDC report.

There are 3 sets of numbers presented: a best case, a worst case and a “best estimate” (where “best” might be more appropriately called “most likely”).

Below, we’ll decode the numbers.

Let’s focus on the far right column — the “current best estimate” of the IFR — the “infection fatality rate”.

The rates are very low … indicating that the likelihood of dying from COVID is very, very low … even if a person gets infected.

Let’s make those numbers a bit more understandable…

The 3rd column is the ISR — the “infection survivability rate” … the inverse of the IFR.

For example, if you’re in the 50 to 60 age group and you get infected, there’s a 99.5% chance that you’ll survive … that you WON’T die.

**Even in the most vulnerable age group (the over 70 crowd) the probability of surviving a COVID infection is over 95%** … over 07% in the best case and over 91% in the worst case *(see charts below).*

*The 4th column — the F-Odds — are read, for example, that the current best estimate is that 1 in 20 infectees who get infected succumb to the virus.*

__The grain of salt__: COVID deaths are a reasonably accurate number .. but the number of infections is a wild guesstimate given the unknown number of asymptomatic infectees who don’t get tested.

He’s old, obese and low income, thus very high risk

[…] CDC: 95% survivability rate if over 70 … higher with no symptoms, no co-morbidities or younger. […]
