So at least you finally admit the truth that there was a shortage of ventilators.




Darkoz,

Everyone that needed a ventilator got one. Nobody died because we ran out of them. Again, you're just exaggerating.

That means about 10 or 11 million infections. Which I still think might be too low. Considering they say that this virus is much more infectious than the 2009 virus that supposedly infected 61 million, that seems at least a little more realistic.

37,727/10.5 =.0036



That's very good news if that 10M-11M estimate is correct. Still though, that's about three times higher mortality rate than the seasonal flu. And far more contagious.

DeMango wins!

Great prediction.



Isn't the death toll in US already at the 40k mark? It will most definitely surpass that number, probably at least several times over.

How about we do this

You post a link that substantiates your claim

I will do the same.

Here is my link that says you are wrong

That's ludicrous. The last prediction that I read yesterday was revised downward, yet again to only 60k. up to I think Aug 1.

This is great news!

The virus is retiring in early August -- probably before it's 401K takes too big a hit. Sounds like party time. I figured there was a sound reason death totals were being limited to August 4th, but a virus retirement, that takes the cake. We should probably get a cake, for us and the virus.

So COVID-19 is taking the watch and the plaque and settling down in St. Augustine? I knew all those tales of second and third and fourth waves were exaggerated.

I wonder why the feds made me claim all of 2019's income on my taxes. You'd think I'd get the same August 4th cutoff as the virus. Oh well, win some lose some. Thank God it's retiring.

Hey, I had just had a great idea! Let's talk the virus into early retirement! How about July 4th? Who do I write to so we can get that done?

It'll knock those mortality figures down a few more notches, we get some rest, and the virus gets some rest. Everybody wins!

Opening up America on July 4th! Who could argue with that? We could have fireworks and candy apples.

Who's with me?

Since April 9th there have been 15,000 deaths added in the US due to Coronavirus.

At that same rate it won't be long before we hit 60,000.

We don't seem to be at the Apex yet even

The post in question was not a projection about the future but rather... Fantasyland discussion about reality now



Mycomment about wrong projections vs. lies was a more general comment and was not germane to your specific post.

I highlighted in my post above his comments that are from Fantasyland.

If it's now an insult to point out when someone says an untruth then there can no longer be discussion about anything demonstrably untrue on this site. Lies can start getting spewed on every post



You are allowed to challenge anyone, say that you disagree with a post, say that you think their posts contain wrong information. It when you make comments insulting to the person that you run afoul of the rules.

You should be able to disagree without saying that the poster is in fantasyland -especially when that is pretty much to entirety of your comment.
