    Social distancing until the 30th.

    Peak in two weeks.

    Two separate things.

    That's what I think I heard anyway.

    I really don't have a hope for a peak in two weeks.

    This just came out last night,

    This study presents the first set of estimates of predicted health service utilization and deaths due to COVID-19 by day for the next 4 months for each state in the US. Peaks seem to be about mid April as things stand now. Certainly many assumptions had to be made.
    Current prediction is for 81,000 U.S. deaths thru August 2020

    http://www.healthdata.org/research-...-bed-days-icu-days-ventilator-days-and-deaths

    This page has drop-down boxes for state predictions for estimated peak, icu/regular beds available/needed, ventilator cases and deaths

    So, the 2 week shut down wasn't enough. Now we are looking at six weeks. Small business, as well as large business will not survive well for that long.
    People won't comply for that long either.
    Remember, the Democrats are making plans on how to run the election under these mandates. Think they don't already have plans?

    3% of restaurants have shut down for good, likely they were marginal before.
    If this lasts a month, another 11% said they will shut down. According to the National Restaurant Assoc.

    I think the President made the right decision. There are just too many unknowns going on with this virus.

    We shouldn't be shutting down the economy over unknowns.

    Yes, we should not be listening to the worlds smartest doctors/scientists. We should not be learning from other countries. We should listen to Gundude

    If we continue doing what we are currently doing, we will lose 40k to 200k from this virus.

    If we stop doing what we are currently doing it will be substantially more.

    Those are the knowns.

    Regards,
    Happyguy :)

    I assume that you are upset with the President because he hasn't asked you for your opinion on this virus.

    We will do what ever is necessary to defeat the Chi-com flu. Can't give up now, stick together and get it done.

    You sound just like the climate change pushers. You probably sincerely think science and medicine are unconnected to politics. They're not.
