    Re: Expect a Million Deaths

    The "Experts" once again have downgraded their death toll predictions. We have gone from 1.7 million deaths and there being nothing that could be done to lessen those numbers because Trump! To now, less than a month later, the "Experts" have revised it down to 82k.
    Some of the people in this thread along with the "Experts" should be very embarrassed about how wrong they were.
    The University of Washington’s Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) now predicts that 81,766 people will die of COVID-19 in the U.S.

    All that is left to say is that Trump's quick and decisive actions regarding the pandemic have saved 1.6 million US lives.

    I wouldn't say that because those numbers were hyper-inflated, IMO
    But....
    The left is kinda forced to have to say that after they adamantly backed the experts and demanded everyone give them unquestioned fidelity.

    I guessed the real number would be closer to 50k back at the begining of this thread and was mocked for saying so.

    Which one? The "it's just one guy from China" or "a miracle will happen"?

    2) They've lowered their forecasted overall death totals considerably, from 93,500 to 80,000 (figures rounded). Good news.

    3) Counter-intuitively they have increased the 4/16 peak rate from 2644 to 3130, and the cumulative 4/16 death total from 35,000 to 40,000.

    The charts I have been constructing (and following) conform to EITHER outcome as plausible.

    In any event, it is one more development that undermines the "sky is falling" sensationalism that has preoccupied the partisan lobby.
    I suppose it could have been worse had we not all sheltered, but it's still a PITA.

    Would you like more mocking?

    I’d be happy to deliver.

    I’ve got enough material, that’s for sure.
