The death toll this hour stands at 2,400.

Dr. Fauci thinks, in the end there will be around 100 to 200k fatalities, and the lower bound would be a success.

To put this in context: It took a month for the first 1,000 patients to die.

The next 1000 took just 48 hours.

This is what exponential growth looks like. Still, hard to imagine to get from 2,400 to 100k. But it isn't.

Currently, the infection count doubles about every three days. Let's hope social distancing works and the count slows down and doubles every four days for the next weeks. With some time lag, the death rate follows, all else equal, without some miraculous breakthrough in treatment, that same trajectory.

So, given the trajectory we get to

4,800 in 4 days
9,600 in 8 days
19,200 in 12 days
38,400 in 16 days
76,800 in 20 days
In 24 days, the count will be above 100k.

Look at it in another way:

My back of the envelope calculation suggests we have 5 million infected right now.

Let's take a napkin:

80% of covid-19 cases are either asymptomatic or with very mild symptoms. Next to none of them are tested.

At 120,000 confirmed cases, we know there are five times as many, that is, around 600,000 cases out there.

Actually, since symptom expression takes about 10 days, and only those with symptoms are tested, these 120,000 cases with severe symptoms are a snapshot of the situation of 10 days ago.

We also know the virus is highly infectious and spreads at a staggering rate, say, doubling around every three days. With ten days having passed since the snapshot had been taken, the count doubled at least three times, and the actual number of infected today is at least eight times the count of ten days ago, allowing for "stay at home", "social distancing" to have some limited effect since it started. Still, eight times 600,000 means we're facing almost five million infected. Now. Today.

Five million. Even if the spread is slowing down, doubling only every five days, we're 25 days away from 160 million infected.
In four days, it will be about double that. 10 million infected, assuming a death rate of 1%, means 100k fatalities. This fatality count, since the time between infection and death of the most vulnerable is about 20 days, is about 24 days away. That's barely more than three weeks.

You can see why Dr. Fauci would assert 100k deaths would be optimistic, and that's probably assuming that nowhere in the U.S. the healtcare system is so seriously overwhelmed that the death rate rises even higher. In order to understand what we see here: About 5% of those infected require intensive care - depending on the rate of folks with pre-existing conditions in the population, and how efficiently the most vulnerable are being protected. At 10 million infected, that's 500k, in an ICU bed for two weeks in a roughly four-week period, about halving the number, 250k occupied ICU beds at any time - 2.5 times the pre-epidemic ICU beds in the U.S. (about 100k). We haven't even talked about the fact that these ICU beds are well used, even in normal times. You can see why Gov. Cuomo is insisting on the number of ICU beds to be doubled to prepare for the spike in New York State.

That's all just basic knowledge about the coronavirus and extrapolation, and probably somewhat off the mark, but: Whoever still hasn't understood what lies ahead, the very magnitude of it - wake the fúck up!

O.K. Everyone....

The World-O-Meter just closed out it's numbers.

It's just one day....but it wasn't as bad as yesterday

And I don't take any deaths lightly.....

It seems that todays numbers were lower, in many ways than yesterday.

The number of cases was down from 19,500 to 18,500

Deaths were down from 525 to 264.

New York finally bought a break with regards to the trend.

Spain showed 4th straight day of decline in cases.

Spain finally had fewer deaths today than yesterday.

Italy got some good news too.

Sweden showed something good too.

Prayer does work !!!!!!

Again....just one day.

Looking like a serious flu season, for which we shut down our entire economy.
No it isn't. Hospitals in our epicenters are being overwhelmed (see Atlanta and New York). And this has just begun. This is not how flu season begins. What the fuck is wrong with you people?

Cases were lower today than yesterday (in terms of new ones).

Deaths were down.....way down.

Other countries showed the same.

Wow...are they all lying ?

Just one day (Well for Spain it was the 4th day in a row that cases were smaller).

Yes, it does have a very low mortality rate.
The flu, which Trump and the Hive Mind stupidly compare to COVID-19, has a mortality rate of 0.1%.

1.35% is 13.5 times more fatal than the flu.

So the next time you hear a Trumptard talk about the umpteen thousand people who die each year from the flu, multiply their number by 13.5, and that will explain why we should have reacted much more quickly and with greater force to this "hoax".
No one called it a hoax stop lying it only harms your case....
Trump called it a Democrat hoax. Then blew it off and went golfing.

What a tard!
He did not tard...stop lying or no one will ever take you seriously here again....you have been lying for two weeks now....
He said it will go away in April because of the heat. Go ahead show us , how you spin this one. GO!!!

The death toll this hour stands at 2,400.

Dr. Fauci thinks, in the end there will be around 100 to 200k fatalities, and the lower bound would be a success.

To put this in context: It took a month for the first 1,000 patients to die.

The next 1000 took just 48 hours.

This is what exponential growth looks like. Still, hard to imagine to get from 2,400 to 100k. But it isn't.

Currently, the infection count doubles about every three days. Let's hope social distancing works and the count slows down and doubles every four days for the next weeks. With some time lag, the death rate follows, all else equal, without some miraculous breakthrough in treatment, that same trajectory.

So, given the trajectory we get to

4,800 in 4 days
9,600 in 8 days
19,200 in 12 days
38,400 in 16 days
76,800 in 20 days
In 24 days, the count will be above 100k.

Look at it in another way:

My back of the envelope calculation suggests we have 5 million infected right now.

Let's take a napkin:

80% of covid-19 cases are either asymptomatic or with very mild symptoms. Next to none of them are tested.

At 120,000 confirmed cases, we know there are five times as many, that is, around 600,000 cases out there.

Actually, since symptom expression takes about 10 days, and only those with symptoms are tested, these 120,000 cases with severe symptoms are a snapshot of the situation of 10 days ago.

Five million. Even if the spread is slowing down, doubling only every five days, we're 25 days away from 160 million infected.
In four days, it will be about double that. 10 million infected, assuming a death rate of 1%, means 100k fatalities. This fatality count, since the time between infection and death of the most vulnerable is about 20 days, is about 24 days away. That's barely more than three weeks.

You can see why Dr. Fauci would assert 100k deaths would be optimistic, and that's probably assuming that nowhere in the U.S. the healtcare system is so seriously overwhelmed that the death rate rises even higher. In order to understand what we see here: About 5% of those infected require intensive care - depending on the rate of folks with pre-existing conditions in the population, and how efficiently the most vulnerable are being protected. At 10 million infected, that's 500k, in an ICU bed for two weeks in a roughly four-week period, about halving the number, 250k occupied ICU beds at any time - 2.5 times the pre-epidemic ICU beds in the U.S. (about 100k). We haven't even talked about the fact that these ICU beds are well used, even in normal times. You can see why Gov.

So the next time you hear a Trumptard talk about the umpteen thousand people who die each year from the flu, multiply their number by 13.5, and that will explain why we should have reacted much more quickly and with greater force to this "hoax".
No one called it a hoax stop lying it only harms your case....
Trump called it a Democrat hoax. Then blew it off and went golfing.

What a tard!
He did not tard...stop lying or no one will ever take you seriously here again....you have been lying for two weeks now....
He said it will go away in April because of the heat. Go ahead show us , how you spin this one. GO!!!
No he didn't say that...there you go lying again....your lies and those of other libs are not working......he said warmer weather could....COULD....cause the virus to weaken if....IF....this is like other viruses.....get his words right if you are going to try and quote my president....losers lie....

Total deaths/Total cases = 1.35% mortality rate in the US.

This is from the CDC site TODAY:



The denominator is still not well defined enough to make this a hard number. All we have is tested cases, not the actual number of people infected. We need random sampling of the population to determine the infected/non infected ratio to allow extrapolation via the known tested cases to get a denominator that measures the real infection rate.

Some scientists have said the heat may help, but April is unlikely to provide enough heat for most of the US.

Yes, it does have a very low mortality rate.
The highest is Italy, with 4%, and Germany has kept it as low as 0.4%.
So this is not the big threat some fear it might have become.
China shows the total is not that bad, since they are over it mostly.

But what we DO have to remember is that COVID-19 is not going away.
Everyone will get it eventually, if not this year, then in one of the following years.
And it will get more lethal over time.
The safest way to get resistance is to get it sooner rather than later.
However, if they get a successful vaccine, that would be best.
we do not know the actual mortality rate because we do not know exactly how many people have had the virus and recovered without seeking medical assistance or who met the threshold for a Dr to recommend they get tested
That's correct it could actually be less deadly than this years flu....not that that is not bad but its interesting to note.....
Anything "could be". But the preponderance of evidence indicates that covid-19 is significantly more deadly that normal flu. Add to that the fact that it's a new virus that no one has immunity to, and we're talking about a really dangerous situation. Best to just deny it and ostrich up.
