WHO: US has potential to be "epicentre of outbreak"

Interesting it shows a complete drop off around august.  Do they really expect it to go down that much?  How?

from their FAQ.... 

 

"

Why do your estimates only go until July? Does that mean the outbreak will be over then?

Our model says that social distancing will likely lead to the end of the first wave of the epidemic by early June. The question of whether there will be a second wave of the epidemic will depend on what we do to avoid reintroducing COVID-19 into the population. By end the of the first wave of the epidemic, an estimated 97% of the population of the United States will still be susceptible to the disease, so avoiding reintroduction of COVID-19 through mass screening, contact tracing, and quarantine will be essential to avoid a second wave."

So where are the dipshits saying this is a hoax that’s overblown now that their dear leader is changing his time and admitting 100,000-250,000 are going to die?

 

 You must be so proud of yourself.

I can now see where Mark Set gets his epidemiology advice on summer sorting things out.

How is this guy still in charge.

Pence in March, said if you’re healthy and young, go ahead and take that cruise. 
 

oh and Pence’s prior public health response was failing to address an HIV epidemic cluster in Indiana.

Mark I did read what you wrote. 

When someone sprukes on 31 March a SARS virus of the ''Novel" Corona category of pandemic proportion and now in 152 of 155 counties, keeps repeating the word "flu", might be seasonal so a panacea and forgets the world has a northern and southern hemisphere, I sort of worked out they were living in a parallel universe. 

Carry on Mark and don't forget to downvote this post too.

 

You fucking numbskull the post ALSO says that it isnt the flu, that it is a coronavirus that is RELATED TO MERS THAT IS NOT SEASONAL!! you fuking cunt!

But Mark you said they aren't certain it's seasonal. Therefore you were waiting to see if it would die off in summer?

If it helps it started here in summer and got stronger.

They arent certain if it is seasonal or not yet. Viruses like flu of course often die off in warm weather. MERS, which is a related coronavirus, was able to spread in Saudi Arabia in the summer. Wait and see.

I know...but now it suddenly seems to be getting weaker, the opposite to what's happening where it's getting warmer. It's a real bugger to work out.
