We all have varying opinions about the impact of this, the numbers, etc. We will all never agree with each other. But we can all keep it civil.

Thanks!

The blurb I got was not so much that the results were good but where the results were coming from lending a lot of credibility to it all.

Lots of epidemiologists bashing the IHME model in this article. But there is some positive info.

Lipsitch and some other experts worry that by failing to include disease transmission, IHME’s projections of deaths could be too low. But more and more models are projecting a less dire future. Three weeks ago a SEIR model from researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology projected that total U.S. cases will plateau later this week, reaching 600,000 and then adding ever-fewer cases each day. So far it’s pretty much on the money, with the U.S. case count at 650,000 on Thursday and new daily cases remaining mostly flat.

A different, data-driven model from researchers at the University of Washington predicts “about 1 million cases in the U.S. by the end of the epidemic, around the first week in June, with new cases peaking in mid-April,” said UW applied mathematician Ka-Kit Tung, who led the work. “By the first week of June, we project that the number of new cases will be close to zero if current social distancing policies are maintained.” That model predicted two weeks ago that the number of new daily cases would peak around now, as seems to be the case.

So Worldometers is showing only 105 new cases for Mo. Same as the Mo Dept of Health. Not sure where all this 5,500+ is coming from?

I can't keep up but has this come up in the thread

@DrDenaGrayson: BREAKING: preliminary data from an ongoing clinical study of #remdesivir showed that in 113 patients with severe #COVID19:

Fever/symptoms rapidly improved
Most discharged within 6 days
2 died (1.8%), much less than expected for severe #COVID19

NY numbers seem odd. 395 new cases and 1,205 deaths?

It's a non-political political post?

Also trying cocaine for the “energy” boost since it’s better than sugar. Also doubling my alcohol use for the health benefits.

I hope it cures my asthma.
The cocaine will help with the hangover

I'd prefer not getting deathly ill in the first place but I'm currently a beggar, not a chooser so I'll take it!

So for people who understand the drug approval process how many more trials or whatnot does it need to go through?
