Today, Louisiana's petty tyrant held a bark-a-thon press conference. It seems that Louisiana once again leads the nation in Covid infections. He's thinking about a mask mandate for everyone. Even fully vaccinated folks.
Lets look at the numbers shall we? This is from today's LA Covid dashboard. They are his numbers, not mine.
First, the main dashboard, where we get an oerview.
Next, the stats for the vaccinated folks.
These charts tell us a couple of things. First, we have 1,716,161 fully vaccinated folks in Louisiana. Those fully vaccinated folks account for 10% of the new cases. That means we have 531 of the new cases are vaccinated. That tells me that the chance of a vaccinated person getting Covid is 0.000030. That tells me that the chances of a fully vaccinated person getting Covid is 3 thousandths of 1 percent.
That's pretty good odds. I have a better chance of dying in an auto crash, but not quite as much chance of being struck by lightning. I don't know what he is freaking out about.
