The proof is right there on a screen capture posted to Warren Kinsella's blog. "Province says 4,400 deaths have been prevented so far." That's what you call polishing a turd.
If you've been diagnosed with Covid-19 and haven't died then that must mean the Ford government prevented your death. So, a few hundred have died. How does that stack up against the 4,400 deaths we've prevented?
The mortality rate for Covid-19 varies from country to country. Italy is running about 12 per cent. Britain is at 9%. Germany at 1%. Let's say Ontario's Covid mortality rate is somewhere around 5 per cent of diagnosed cases. "4,400 deaths" would translate into 88,000 Ontarians with the virus. The figure in the map above shows 3,288 which is a far cry from 88,000.
Ford is manipulating the stats to claim victory where none exists. Self-isolation is responsible, not Doug Ford. The public did that. Society deserves the credit, not the provincial government. To claim credit for preventing 4,400 deaths is despicable.
