Day 1201


(Matt Kiser) #1

1/ The CDC projects that by June 1, the coronavirus death toll in the U.S. will reach about 3,000 daily deaths – nearly double the current number of about 1,750 – and COVID-19 cases will surge to about 200,000 per day – up from about 25,000. The draft report, based on government modeling and put together in chart form by FEMA, predicts a sharp increase in both cases and deaths beginning around May 14. The White House and the CDC, however, disavowed the report, which carries the logo of the CDC and Departments of Health and Human Services and Homeland Security, calling it an “internal CDC document” that had not been presented to Trump’s coronavirus task force. Separately, a coronavirus model frequently cited by the White House is now forecasting that 134,000 people will die of COVID-19 in the U.S. – nearly double its previous prediction. The increases in both models are tied to relaxed social distancing and increased mobility as states, including Florida, Colorado, Indiana, Nebraska and South Carolina, have eased restrictions.

That :point_up_2:weird report fails to explain why the US continued to export PPE after January 20th, when the CCP informed the WHO that the virus was transmitting person to person. Read US exports of PPE to China continued through February.

Read the report :point_down:

Good news for the environment, bad news for the Trump regime and their buddies in big oil.
