And we might just have learned a bit about how to control pandemics and how to keep people with infections alive over the course of the past century.

no, it's not that level of killer. what you WILL see is your Health System collapsing and people getting killed by other stuff instead. Compund fracture of the leg after drunk-crashing your pick-up truck? dead. Accidentally shot self in the foot with new Gun? dead. Old and need care for all the things Old People need care for? Dead.

If that happens it may rather adversely affect the way Trump's core demographic regard him.


I dunno. IIRC, Spanish Flu killed around 650,000 in the U.S. over the course of two years. They are 20% of the way there and only four months in.


with only about a third of the population though. to kill 'on a spanish flu level' you would need 2 million deaths. I don't see that.

Quite correct. Still, in pure numbers, we may get there. :/

Nah, I try to be hoeful about stuff. It really doesn't seem insanely infectious, and there is a line in even the stupidest person's brain that says 'you know, licking that guy with the cough might not be a good idea?'

If you hit 200k (on the current measurement methods) I will be surprised and sad.

Whereas for me given the current infection rate and curve if US hits 200k I will NOT be surprised and sad.

They are painting Black Lives Matter on 5th Ave in front of Trump Tower right now. I bet he sells it and moves all his shit to Florida.
