    hmmm, seems too targeted toward the people (and their psyche) most perceived as not caring about the outbreak. like disinformation intended to influence behavior. It certainly could be true but seems way too convenient.

    Right, they have already been coming in large numbers. Sure we will see a good part of the heard up here

    Too many variables. It really matters how soon and how well we stop spreading it. 2k deaths now. 5x per week for a few weeks. So 80k for Easter. 400k week after. 2.5M new memorials for Memorial Day?

    Some 'hoax' folks I know are starting to change their tune, so maybe exponential growth slows after Easter. And there will be flattening in today's hard hit regions that should slow it sooner. Maybe the 5x/week ends next week due to WA/CA/etc lockdowns. Stop the 5x next week, and maybe we hold it to 70k at Memorial Day.

    Forgot about overwhelming hospitals, could be much higher. OTOH maybe gin and tonic works as treatment, and it'll be lower.

    These guys are considerably more optimistic They assume all states implement effective strong social distancing measures in the next week, and estimate 80k deaths by August (with some hospital overwhelmage).

    I'm astounded that some otherwise intelligent people (I'm thinking of WSJ writers) do not see the extreme mortal hazard in exponential growth and limited hospital capacity. The business leaders need to get on the hype train if we're to convince holdout governors and presidents.

    Something funky going on with NY, hasn’t really moved much in 3 days - I know it’s a log scale but at almost 750 recorded deaths that doesn’t look up to date

    angels landing trail in Zion (trail closed since the picture taken)
    if you can't figure out how to hike in Zion without being in a crowd you probably should not be let out of the city limits without a guide.
    On the plus side, if stupid people disproportionately die (along with old people) it should be good for the country,

    Unreal. That would go over as well as closing liquor stores in Denver.

    ^^^ Cuomo says fuck you to that. He'll sue the feds.

    I think he should just challenge trump to a deathmatch.

    He made himself very clear. And he has the upper hand. He doesn't even like the sound of it.

    To be fair it is Utah. That could all be one family.
