I was curious as to whether the number of (alleged) Covid deaths correlated to population density and came up with a quick chart based on data from worldometers.info. The reason I did it was because I've often heard how we're the 'poor man of Europe' and my first thought was that being a highly densely populated country we would be bound to have higher death rates per capita.
Please note, I am skeptical about the data but I'm not attempting to debunk it here. This was just an exercise in curiosity and I'm sure a statistician could knock holes in it.
Anyway, the blue line shows deaths per one million population, in descending order.
The green line is the population density per square mile factored by the percentage of people classed as living in urban areas (to adjust for the much lower rates of contagion one might expect in rural areas). It conveniently shares the same scale as the deaths per one million but their relative positions don't matter, either of the lines could be higher or lower on the chart; it's just the trends I'm looking for.
The green trend line takes out the spikes of individual countries to produce an average of sorts.
Deaths per one million seem to correlate quite well with population density on average (green trend line), which doesn't surprise me but there are some interesting deviations. The Netherlands, Channel Islands, Luxembourg and Germany all have relatively high population densities and seem to have outperformed in terms of deaths per one million (although small countries such as Luxembourg and the Channel Islands can easily produce large deviations). Spain, Sweden and Ireland have comparatively low population densities so appear to have suffered disproportionately higher death rates. UK deaths seems to be in line with what one might expect compared to other countries.
I haven't gone any further in relating this to how or when lockdowns etc. were introduced in each country and probably won't. It just kept me busy for half-an-hour and I thought I'd share.
If you are looking at statistics, I think it's an idea to include population age as the average age of people dying with Covid is around 80. Therefore, countries with older populations will be recording more deaths. Of course, nobody dies of Covid, the cause of death is pneumonia or an underlying condition.
Sustsustco, the RT-PCR tests will produce more false results if you test more.
Here is a short post I have done on this issue:
It does seem that the amount of Testing Increases rates ! Is there a Body Response to Testing ?! Or just that the Test (PCR) was never designed for this purpose ... gives false positives and negatives and can show up short strand DNA that is not Covid related ? which may be just another coronavirus related.... or even not ! And then amplify the result. This seems like one big stew...... Which people aren't cooking in their Kitchens - Fresh Foods - these days. Perhaps Covid has a bigger issue base -
Why isn't the BBC etc. Really Investigating these aspects ..... Maybe Covid has eaten their minds !!!
Maybe that's the really big thing Covid does !!! ???
Good work, but then again if you look at cities incredibly densely populated and known for slam areas such as Luanda (Angola), Lagos (Nigeria), Mumbai (India) you'd expect a carnage yet nothing of that sort has been happening. Climate probably plays part, but then how would one explain parts of the USA and South America?
Claimed deaths seem to corelate very well with eagerness of governments and politically driven agendas. That's my opinion, not scientifically proven.
I would still like to believe that all of this is a global panic rather than planned event however the longer it drags the more I'm inclined to believe the latter.
This is where I got the numbers from
I wouldn't go to far in to the numbers. Go outside of Europe then the true picture emerges. They are entirely bogus. Here's but one example
Country Pop alleged infections alleged deaths
China 1.3 billion 87,028 4659
Vietnam 97 million 420 0
Laos 7 million 20 0
Cambodia 17 million 420 0
UK 68 million 299,430 45,752
You may want to weight those numbers in accordance with urban density,the UK has 80 percent of its population in cities, Vietnam nearer 40.
But really? Look at these numbers? How on earth can anyone take this thing seriously when you have official figures like this? It's amazing that they produce such figures openly and no one questions anything.
Vietnam borders China and has around 4 times more chinese people living there than the UK. The virus is supposed to have originated in China. How many people were moving back and forth over the border between the countires in early 2020?
On top of this consider the US numbers. Two states, NY and NJ make up over 50 percent of the cases.
Viruses do not behave as if they have their very own GPS devices. They even know that they are not allowed to infect children,which is all the more remarkable when you consider it is children they pump full of vaccines because they tell us their immune systems are not fully developed!
This is a political virus and it has an agenda. Trying to find patterns in the numbers is an exercise in futility.
Virology is a cargo cult science.
