The mortality rate for patients put in intensive care after being infected with Covid-19 is running at close to 50%, a report has revealed.
You only put extremely ill people into ICU, a goodly portion of the extremely ill people you put into ICU die. This is not a surprise.
What would be interesting to know is what is the normal survival rate?
And do note, this is the number of those out of ICU in one way or another. Those still in aren’t as yet in that mortality rate.
It also appears to be – appears – those with Covid 19, not those there because of it.
Finally, of course, it says nothing at all about those infected who don’t need ICU.
