Yes folks, I'm just being mean now. These are trying times and I am getting tired of inane arguments.Originally Posted by James Brown
I downloaded the infection data from the CDC site and personally graphed the Total Covid 19 Infections by Day. Worldometer already does this, but I wanted to do it myself. Since you have mocked James and Russ's math skills, and since you adamantly deny that this disease has progressed exponentially, please tell me what alternative function would fit this curve? Jim
At some point "fairly soon" we will need to cautiously emerge from the shut down to resuscitate the economy. To paraphrase Dr. Fauci, the virus gets to decide what "fairly soon" is. We are going to have to take some risks I think, and I trust that the medical and economic data is being generated as we speak to guide us through the risks. There will be no safe options. I'll quite possibly agree with Rich more than I agree with most D politicians when we get down to really discussing how to balance the health risks with the economic risks as we consider options for emerging from the shut down, but he makes it damn near impossible to agree with him.
