100,000,000 Americans Could Become Infected at Current Rate of Interventions

Author 512932
Message Al Hirschfield

What’s at stake in this coronavirus pandemic? How many Americans can become infected? How many might die?

The answers depend on the actions we take — and, crucially, on when we take them. Working with infectious disease epidemiologists, we developed this interactive tool that lets you see what may lie ahead in the United States and how much of a difference it could make if officials act quickly. (The figures are for America, but the lessons are broadly applicable to any country.)

Others are estimating much higher numbers. I hope this prediction is right.

This actually really surprised me. Listening to Dr. Fauci at the news conference, he was saying that if things went as they now hoped (after declaring a National Emergency), that the whole thing could be under control in a matter of weeks. This is the first time at least I've heard these kinds of numbers...

It would be nice to know what is in this article without having to have a subscription to the NYT.

Yes, thanks!

Whoops! It was OK until I tried to "read more", then it went to the NYT page. But I get the idea of the article, I think.

There was a doctor on the PBS Newshour last week who believes, because there has been virtually no testing, that there are tens of thousands of cases already and that those cases will double every six days.

This was what I was going to say to Al Hirschfield. There are not very many Test Kits available. As to why this is true, I do not know. The blame is probably the Republicans being their normal cheap selves.

Funny you should use the 100,000,000 figure as that is exactly what the agenda (see #9) of the Deep State has set for the United States by the year 2050
