Given the lack of sports “glad” to see this competition has not been shut down

Current board as of March 25 looks like the following


Maryland leads with 349
Virginia , which was ahead, has fallen behind and finds itself at 290
DC trails far behind with 183

US deaths on Saturday: 525
US deaths on Sunday: 264

What are the odds of death rate being cut in half from one day to the next?

Number of new US cases also went from 19.4K to 18.4K Saturday vs. Sunday.

Italy also has gone from 919 deaths Friday to 899 Saturday (I could be slightly off on those) to 756 Sunday.

Some people don't work on the weekends. Counts will spike on Monday and Tuesday.

Who do we believe?

Dr. Fauci forecasts that loss of American life could be in the 100,000-200,000 range. Whereas:

 Neil Ferguson of Imperial College in Britain....
Ferguson had co-written a paper this month estimating 510,000 deaths in England and 2.2 million in the United States — if those countries did not take drastic actions. (numbers cut in half with social distancing)

So once people DO go back to work, and people do start travelling again, how does this not start right back up? 200K (or less) will die, but what assumptions are made to keep that number from growing to 2.2 million?



Mr. Fauci said he was joined in the meeting by Dr. Deborah L. Birx, the lead coordinator of the White House’s coronavirus task force.

She told reporters on Sunday that even with precautions and restrictions, the government’s model estimated “between 80,000 and 160,000, maybe even potentially 200,000 people, succumbing” to Covid-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus.

She added that without any precautionary measures, the same models projected that 1.6 million to 2.2 million Americans could die from complications of the virus.

“Some of them predicted half of the United States would get infected,” she said.

Dr. Birx acknowledged that it was a huge sacrifice for Americans to stay home another month, but she said the measures had “potential to save hundreds of thousands of American lives.”
