In a report from NPR, quoting a study of a single health system, to be published in next week in Journal of Hospital Medicine, the death rate for hospitalized Covid-19 patient has seen a significant reduction in death rate.
Studies Point To Big Drop In COVID-19 Death Rates
Two new peer-reviewed studies are showing a sharp drop in mortality among hospitalized COVID-19 patients. The drop is seen in all groups, including older patients and those with underlying conditions, suggesting that physicians are getting better at helping patients survive their illness.

"We find that the death rate has gone down substantially," says Leora Horwitz, a doctor who studies population health at New York University's Grossman School of Medicine and an author on one of the studies, which looked at thousands of patients from March to August.

The study, which was of a single health system, finds that mortality has dropped among hospitalized patients by 18 percentage points since the pandemic began. Patients in the study had a 25.6% chance of dying at the start of the pandemic; they now have a 7.6% chance.

Their analysis took into account that the people that are getting sick now are significantly younger and with less pre-existing conditions than the average seen closer to the beginning of the pandemic. They were trying to determine whether the decrease was due to the nature of the patient or improvements in treatment.

It is an interesting article, especially coming into the fall season with cooler weather and while observing a marked rise in the number of cases being report, virtually across the nation and including states that have majorly been spare so far.

Analytics. The science involved is just that. Learning more and more on how to care for the infected.

I've noticed that looking at the data from a few different states. I wonder if the virus infecting people now is a weaker mutation?

It has been for a while, but you wouldn't know that listening to the media.
Yet the covid rate of infection has gone up. And it's not herd immunity, it's the fact we have the best Medical Care in the world. The Death Rate and others could be better but I don't see them getting any better than right now. Here comes 300,000 by the end of year for covid deaths.

Thanks for finally admitting it wasn't somehow the fault of one man's covert coverup who used to be a real estate developer, and instead, the natural learning curve of 10,000 virologists and 1,000,000 medical experts dealing with something new they had never seen before. Another Dem lie exposed.

Duh, what? Article published today and not even in the medical journals until next week. It makes the point that it is still dangerous and significantly more deadly than flu, as even trump said on tape while lying to the public about how serious it is, but it offers a ray of sunshine. I actually thought both sides of the Covid-19 debate would see this as a positive thing.

Methods to determine exposure to the virus have become more efficient so it's easy to fudge the data by claiming that people who test positive without showing symptoms are included in a fake spike even if the spike is collapsing.

For what? He gave up on the issue months ago.

This was not about test positives. This was about people that were definitively positive, sickened to the point of having to be hospitalized for critical care and the change in outcomes since March.

It has been for a while, but you wouldn't know that listening to the media.
Well, the media in MN is in full panic mode and WI enacted a 25% occupancy requirement on businesses because the magical numbers "are going the wrong way". Now schools only open for a couple weeks part time are talking going full distance learning again.
For the first time I hear kids saying they want to go to school and people want to go to work. I want to know the numbers of those like me who long ago had enough of Shelter In PlaceTM.
