Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, July 26, 2021

Hundreds of children in Indonesia have died from the coronavirus in recent weeks, many of them under age 5, a mortality rate greater than that of any other country and one that challenges the idea that children face minimal risk from Covid-19, doctors say.

MFA:

"The jump in child deaths coincides with the surge of the Delta variant, which has swept through Southeast Asia, where vaccination rates are low, causing record outbreaks not only in Indonesia, but in Thailand, Malaysia, Myanmar and Vietnam as well."

I hope the unvaccinated in this country are paying attention:

"The Delta variant is different," says Dr. Rick Barr of the Arkansas Children's Health System.

"We have 12 children admitted to the hospital now with Covid... they seem to be much sicker. Most of them are teenagers, and a number of them are in the ICU and have Covid pneumonia."

You spelled Alabama wrong.

I watched the Gov of Alabama who said she has no idea what else to do to control this pandemic after being one of the very first states to lift the mask mandate.

Eff her.

It's a bold strategy Cotton, we'll see if it pays off.

The --------- that protested the first lockdown are the same idiots that are spreading the disease now.

The talking point "young children are immune" and get over it quickly doesn't hold with delta.

This is many times more contagious and hundreds of times more virulent.

Refusing to get the jab, mask and distance is causing the spread and will lead to ever increasing variants that will be ever increasingly deadly.

There is no cure for the Trump variant.

This is Indonesia, not the U.S.

There's numbers that say only the very old are hurt by this thing as reported. It was reported that kids are not as affected. I guess we werent scared enough for the liberal media. It seems like anything, the liberal media has to do the 180 degree counter point.

Kids arent affected as much, an article will come out to say they are.
Vaccines are 99.9% effective, an article will come out to say even the vaccinated are dying at pandemic rates!

It's almost predictable.

Dumbfuqs like Bo@s are why children are dying. Kill yourself, do the world a favor.

China is also not part of the US it didn't take the virus long to go from that country to America in the first place and if this is a new variation of the coronavirus it will come to America quickly as well.

If you think people won't go from zero to ------- crazy when it comes to defending their kids think about every moral panic in your lifetime and how many of them have involved children.

Not totally safe.

1/111,111 children die from COVID.

01 APR 2021.

When you're dealing with small numbers, it's easier to feign histeria.

Here in Deutschland, the 7 day incidience rate almost tripled in the last week.

Going from something lie 6/100000 to 16/100000

It's intended to sound terrifying.

When COVID rates drop, the media seems far less willing to paint a favorable picture.

You're a dope. When California led the nation in least covid cases it was trumpeted on the front page. Too bad reality gets in the way of your distorted world view.

" 1/111,111 children die from COVID."

And since you've now used the entire denominator, those fractions have nowhere to go but up.

The rate has doubtless gotten worse since you looked it up.

And the rate will be worse tomorrow, and get worse with every death.

Oh so their odds are about the same as an American dying in the 9/11 attacks.
And as we all know the 9/11 attacks were no big deal.

Right. Because nothing could possibly change with a new strain spreading largely because of peop,e who think they know better but don't know squat.

In summer. The time of year when we should be having stable, low level transmission.

We shouldn't be seeing case load spikes this time of year.

Only if people continue to act like total ------- idiots.

If you're wanting to reach herd immunity, the best option is the vaccine. [...]

For someone who always wants to see the math, you don't seem to understand it.

In this case, the denominator is determined by the number of children who have had COVID. In fact, it's entirely reasonable to think that the odds of a child dying of COVID would decline, given that at least some percentage are vaccinated. And as of 19 July, the number of hospitalizations of children remain unchanged, with those who were admitted usually having serious underlying issues.
