US military: 59K cases and 9 deaths (and only 1 active duty death)/ UK government Statistics Authority criticizes govt/prime minister for false use of statistics

While we cannot rely on the Covid statistics that are being provided, still, new numbers for cases and deaths in military servicemembers were released yesterday that are worth a mention.  

Total cumulative diagnosed cases in active and reserve servicemembers “nears 59,000.”  Yet only nine servicemembers have died:  3 National Guard, 5 Reservists and 1 on active dutyIs the military using effective treatments?  I couldn’t find out online; does anyone know?

Hospitalizations:  755. Only 1.3% required hospitalization.  

The “mortality rate among military personnel is currently 0.017%” or less than one death per 6000 diagnosed cases.

From the Daily Mail, verbatim:

Statistics watchdog scolds Number 10 for lack of transparency over Covid-19 data used to justify second lockdown

  • The UK Statistics Authority slammed the use of unsupported data 
  • It warned of public trust falling apart if statistics are not used properly
  • It comes amid accusations the Government used dodgy data for the lockdown 
  • A graph showed 4,000 deaths per day in December if no action was taken
  • But the model has since been shown to be out of date and inaccurate  

Sir Patrick Vallance, No10's Chief Scientific Adviser, suggested there could be a shocking 4,000 deaths per day by December 20 if nothing was done using a now-infamous graph

Sir Patrick Vallance, No10’s Chief Scientific Adviser, suggested there could be a shocking 4,000 deaths per day by December 20 if nothing was done using a now-infamous graph. The scenario was based on the assumption that there would be 1,000 per day by the start of November. Real numbers of people dying are significantly lower
