You're More Likely to Get Murdered in Chicago Than Be Hospitalized for COVID-19 (web.archive.org)

&quot;The Delta variant does not appear to be especially deadly,&rdquo; says Dr. Joel Zinberg in a Tuesday New York Post op-ed.
Zinberg &mdash; who practiced medicine for 30 years at Mt. Sinai Hospital &mdash; notes that &ldquo;despite rising numbers of Delta cases in July, hospitalizations have only increased moderately.&rdquo; Delta victims, he notes, &ldquo;are no more likely to be hospitalized or die than with other variants.&rdquo;
Not only that, but as I noted elsewhere here at PJ Media on Wednesday, you&rsquo;re more likely to get murdered in Chicago (18 murders per 100,000 people) than a senior citizen is to be hospitalized for the Wuhan Flu (2.9 per 100,000), Delta variant or no Delta variant.
