This is NOT a coronavirus. It was made by an artist, who wanted people to have a compelling picture to contemplate. Covid-19 images actually come from electron microscopes, which show blurry black and white ‘images’ of these blobby spheroids in many different sizes and shapes . . . That’s the whole point of coronaviruses — they’re ALL mutated . . . Photo by CDC on Unsplash

If you have a laptop, you can see these data straight from the sources at worldometers.info and https://covid19.who.int/

I don’t want to convince anybody of anything.

I’m just passing along this info that I’ve collected and thoroughly crosschecked. There’s no way to make the numbers easier to read with Medium. Worldometers gives you a chance to see all 7.8 billion humans on one page, and see them multiply at the rate of 2 or 3 more humans on Earth per second.

How we’re living and how we’re dying: I’ve arranged these numbers to give you a way of knowing. I hope it helps.

7,800,000,000 World Population July 9 2020
30,600,000 Total Deaths This Year (global)
545,000 Covid-19 Deaths This Year (global)
5,800,000 Deaths from Hunger
6,700,000 Death from Communicable Diseases
254,000 Death from Flu
876,000 Death from HIV/AIDS
511,000 Death from Malaria
440,000 Death from Waterborne Diseases
2,600,000 Deaths from Cigarettes
1,300,000 Deaths from Alcohol
703,000 Traffic Deaths

Let’s Repeat Total Population and Look at Births and Deaths.

7,800,000,000 World Population
73,000,000 Births so far This Year (Global)
30,600,000 Total Deaths This Year
42,000,000 Net Population Growth

There Are Two Shockingly Big Numbers I’d Like to Show:

$208,000,000,000 Dollars Spent on Illegal Drugs so far this year
1,300,000,000 Blog Posts this year (not all mine)

These numbers are as correct as humanly possible. The only one that’s partially guesswork by WHO is the illegal drug sales.

Thank you, readers. Good luck in these troubled times.
