[quote]You don't have a damn clue what you are talking about. Death is a lagging indicator. That will drop when we are already back open for business as a country.[/quote] If we had perfect information, yes. But we aren't testing everyone so we don't really know the "true" number infected. ...

re: COVID19 slowing in ALL regions of the United States - 10% or lower in all regions - BigJim
1. This is good news. 2. Be a little cautious, this could just be delayed lab reporting. It's happened before. 3. There is no link, but I am interpreting this as the number of new cases is less. Not the total number of cases, that will still be climbing. That still means there are new cases. W...

re: We don't have a national wide COVID19 problem - BigJim
1. I really hope we can all get back to work soon, like May 1. 2. The fact that you haven’t been hit in nowheresville helps save resources for the places that are (NY/NJ/NO). If we can get them past it so the don’t get overwhelmed that saves lives. 3. And then when Nowheresville gets hit (an...

re: .02 mortality rate - BigJim
[quote]I don't know. Lets go with the .02% of H1N1.[/quote] Is that stat right? That means corona is 100 times as deadly. For the record, I think the mortality rate is less than 2%. There are a lot more confirmed cases than testing has revealed. But that isn't all good. The fact that so ma...
