I'm taking all the projections with a grain of salt. I just watch the new cases and the recoveries and the deaths.The death rate is based on limited info, and varies from country to country and even state to state. Are the early average death rates of new viruses normally accurate?The death rate? No, that's pretty clear. And America's trajectory is still not leveling off.I think the data is too limited to make many confident decisions.The data is clear on the body count trajectory, the only reliable data we have given testing capacity shortfall.That's been a worry of mine since we started seeing stay-at-home orders and mandatory business closures. It seems like the sort of thing that could spiral. On the other hand, as I'm neither an economist nor a virologist, I can't say with any certainty what the right balance is between the health of the country and the economy.Let's hope this guy is wrong.
