    Fauci warns coronavirus could kill as many as 200,000 Americans

    Fauci warns coronavirus could kill as many as 200,000 Americans | World news | The Guardian

    Top US infectious disease expert cautions that figure is a ‘moving target’ that could easily be wrong

    Dr Anthony Fauci, the leading US government infectious disease expert, offered a grim prediction on Sunday: the coronavirus could kill as many as 200,000 Americans.

    “I mean, looking at what we’re seeing now, I would say between 100,000 and 200,000 … deaths,” Fauci told CNN’s State of the Union, though he added: “I just don’t think that we really need to make a projection, when it’s such a moving target that you can so easily be wrong and mislead people.”
    ================================================== =======
    According to researchers at Johns Hopkins University, by Sunday morning the US had confirmed nearly 125,000 cases of Covid-19.

    Coronavirus still poses a low risk to the general public in the US.""If you are a healthy young person, there is no reason if you want to go on a cruise ship, go on a cruise ship."

    He didn't make a prediction. He said he couldn't.

    How does Fauci know? The virus has been known to exist for 4 months. How can he be an "expert' this soon?

    When an "expert" openly admits that they cannot make an accurate prediction then they should not offer one.

    Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.” ― George Bernard Shaw, Man and Superman

    Instead of silly predictions, why doesnt the expert just focus on dealing with the virus instead of scaremongering?

    Because he went to school for it and worked in this field for a long time and has seen other situations similar to this and know which models to look at and which ones to dismiss, etc.

    And yet he felt comfortable enough to give us a wide range. True, he also said not to hold him to it, but that's a given.

    "Whenever the models come in, they give a worst-case scenario and a best-case scenario. Generally, the reality is somewhere in the middle. I've never seen a model of the diseases that I've dealt with where the worst case actually came out. They always overshoot," Dr. Anthony Fauci, a key member of the White House's coronavirus task force, told CNN's Jake Tapper on "State of the Union."
    "I mean, looking at what we're seeing now, you know, I would say between 100 and 200,000 (deaths). But I don't want to be held to that," he said, adding that the US is going to have "millions of cases."
