    Once again, no it isn't. If your healthcare workers were not taking precautions 2 weeks ago I don't know what to tell you but I had to travel a month ago and we were all certainly taking precautions.

    In case you have not heard we are being told what to do by politicians. You can find bright minds and experts that will tell you we are totally overreacting as well. Which expert told the politicians to order people to stay home? Plenty have recommended it, and I have followed. It seems like you are arguing a separate point just to argue.

    What scientific model says to close campgrounds while RV parks are open or have people line up outside of stores? What expert? You sure like to make stuff up. You don't seem to be paying attention to what I am saying how would you know what I understand? Give me some data that shows it is a good idea to have people line up outside 2 feet apart instead of be 15 feet apart inside, I would love to see it.

    You seem to read what I am writing with the goal to prove me wrong and show how much smarter you are than me. Why don't you actually read it and see what I am saying. If you want to have a test to see who is smarter that is fine, I can tell you we are both stupid because we are trying to change someone else opinion which is unsuccessful 99.98% of the time. I guess I am in it for the sport now.

    Wrong. I am not comparing year long stats. The time period is clearly listed at the top. Stats are stats. Many have used this site so I just did a screen shot. Table projections are simply predictions. Do you disagree?? Did I say this was a lax situation?? I am simply asking that you consider a different perspective from listed stats. 2.2 milion has become 80-100K and we have what 2500 deaths so far in the US. I just wish some of you'll would get this upset over the # of deaths of say, abortion, MVAs, the regular flu, etc. I don't know what it is but the strain really has some up in arms. Prepare without panic doesn't seem difficult to understand.

    They will blame Trump, the media will spread it, people will believe the media, people will line up to vote for these guys again.
    It sucks.
    I feel for you and what you are dealing with right now.

    stupidity and ignorance is more contagious and fatal than this virus. People do not understand that their actions affect others, in this instance can actually kill others. Everyone blames trump because he is that type of guy who is easy to hate, you know much like your parents when they tell you “no you cant”

    There is nothing to argue about here anymore. NYC just needs our prayers and support.

    It's now estimated that the death toll will be in 6 figures - from Dr. Fauci: claims 100,000-240,000 dead. Does that get anyone's attention?

    The estimate includes deaths that linger well into June and beyond. There was a graph and detailed explanation - did you watch the press conference? Nobody knows the real number, clearly, but two or three weeks from now we should have a better idea whether or not those numbers were overstated.

    Italy is still seeing new death at a rate of over 800/day (837 yesterday). So even if the rate of new case reports has plateaued, if the death toll stabilizes at the current daily rate before a downward inflection point is reached, it won't take many days for that 13,000 number to exceed 15,000. And that will certainly not be the end of it.

    If the eventual daily fatality rate follows anything like a normal curve like many of the projections are showing graphically, then there will be as many deaths following the peak as there were leading up to it. So now the eventual total death rate for Italy goes from 15,000 to 30,000.

    But the population of the US is 5 1/2 times that of Italy. So if the US eventually sees a comparable per capita fatality rate: 5.5 x 30,000 = 165,000.

    Which number happens to lie just about midway between 100,000 and 240,000.

    I doubt we're going to see anything near their per capita.

    I think the country will be fortunate if the death toll from the start of this year’s flu season until fall from flu, Corona virus and the things they cause could be held to under 200,000. The only thing I would wonder about is if Italy’s fatality rate will really follow the Bell curve. It could be that since the bulk of early deaths there were of median age of 80, it could be many more people will end up having died as the curve reaches its peak than as the rate declines since the most vulnerable will have already died.
