Image 20.1 Overview by Region Data from Red indicates above world median and green below median

Images 20.2a&b  Graph of "Active" Cases in the G20 Nations


Image 20.3 Data sorted by Covid Deaths per Million Citizens (Column d/m) After 20 weeks of dispersion, most nations and dependencies are currently reporting less tha 4 deaths per million, eg:  Singapore, Australia, India, Nigeria...   Germany easing lockdowns at  95 deaths per million citizens.


Image 20.4  Data sorted by Covid Recovery rates (Column %r) Median recovery last week was 50% now this week 66% ... Iceland 99%, China 94%, UK now 50% and USA only 23% ...


Image 20.5 Covid Cases sorted by Urban (vs Rural) Percentage (Column "U-R"  Source: Wikipedia) Obviously viruses spread easier in cities but why not easy in Macau or Puerto Rico? Average cases per thousand and average death rate in the three lists: High:   2.1 / 4.2    Middle:   1.6/ 4.3    Low:  0.2 / 3.2


Image 20.6a   Covid Table sorted by Pollution Index (Column "toxic"  Source Average deaths per million for each column shown.

Very strange, the more green a country is, the higher the cases and deaths per million citizens! Average Pollution Index and average cases/deaths per thousand/million shown for each list:  Top:    147 / 1/ 8      Middle:  109 / 1/61         Low:  53/ 11/140

Image 20.7  Covid vs BMI/Obesity-Index  Here "BMI" is for adults only and "percentage obesity" for all ages.  Obviously an issue being obese (like me) but middle weight nations ( middle table) shows most deaths per capita!  The BMI excludes children and the population derivative includes children!

Averages for lists below: Left:  28/28/60   Middle: 26/20/89  Right:  23/ 6 / 7


Image 20.8  Covid vs HIV (Source CIA Factbook) Shown for the three tables are median HIV% in a population and average covid deaths per million citizens: Therefore, no evidence that HIV positive patients have higher covid deaths, in fact lower!  Left: 1.5%/ 10  Middle:  0.3%/ 99  Right: 0.04%/ 35  


Images 20.9a&b   Coronavirus vs Countries that eat HOT Spicy Foods plus Map Youtube will delete any video that suggests that "turmeric" a.k.a  urkuma/curcuma/haldi/gurkemeje cures viruses! Here are 66 countries where hot spices are regular part of daily nourishment and thier corona data:

... S1 = 15 hot spice nations meantioned in ... S2 = 51 additional counries in the zones marked in the hot map Image 20.7b below

World:  population 7.8 billion people, with 320,000 covid deaths, means 41 deaths/million.

66 hot spicy nations:  of 5.2 billion people, 21,000 deaths, means less than 4 deaths/million.

150 non-spicy nations:  of 2.6 billion, with 299,00 deaths means 115 deaths/million.

Why? Have I made a mistake or is this real?  Eat hot spicy food!

Footnote: "If I get this virus I have only a 20% chance of survival? I belong to FOUR risk groups and live in the middle of a hotspot!"  Perhaps I had "it" in January when I was horribly down with flu for three weeks? RRG2020
