  1. What will be meaningful is to get annual data for deaths in Indiana for 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, and 2019 broken down by age groups and cause of death. Then at the end of 2020, the same categories can be compared to previous years data.

    That will yield a comparison that shows “the likely increase in deaths due to Covid-19, compared to a 5-year statistical average of deaths.”

    The point is to answer the question “how many elderly, and terminally ill individuals would have likely died in 2020 if there was not a Covid-19 event … that were categorized as deaths due to Covid-19?

    1. Mark H., I like your thought for analysis that is needed and will provide meaningful data. With the CDC recently pointing out, by reclassifying their data, that only a very small percentage of people have died from just Covid. With that reclassifying, there is now a lot of discussion about “co-morbidities” on death certificates. I did not know how prevalent they were and the analysis you suggest would clearly show how much impact Covid had, or didn’t have, over the norms.

  2. Zero deaths AGAIN in Marion Co.
    Where is the goalpost?
    Who cares about testing when there are few people with symptoms and very few hospitalizations and zero deaths.
    Figure in the Comorbidity and this thing is over.
    Someone tell mayor Joe and his incompetent staff.
