Numbers... regretfully


I said 1.3 was the magic number (30% daily death increase) until we get this thing slowed down... yesterday we were at 780 deaths... multiply that times 1.3 and it would be 1,104 or an additional 234 deaths... as of this moment as I type this we are now actually at 247 for today... we as a country have not flattened the curve...

Want to do something scary... if we do not get control of this and the curve is not flattened... take out your calculator and multiply 780 * 1.3= x *1.3 = x * 1.3 ... all the way to Easter.... if we have not flattened the curve we will be over 100k easily by Easter...

That is just the deaths... the people who will have caught the disease will astronomical. We had 75 cases on March 1st... today is the 25th and we have 68,000 confirmed cases. Our medical system is about to see a tsunami of patients...

I am just posting this... not trying to get anyone riled up about their political beliefs...
