Almost 130,000 dead from COVID-19 in the US and the daily new cases stat is rising quickly.”
I know. A couple months ago Barry vowed to make a public apology if the COVID deaths reached 200,000 by January 2021. Even I thought that was a safe bet for Barry. Does anyone today think it is an absurdly high number?
It is fair to say that the US, by whatever measure you choose, has handled this pandemic very poorly.
it's almost like Barry is a tard
There will now be a flurry of "question the numbers" posts.
Barry made a bet with a guy that the deaths from Covid would be a fraction of the deaths there would be from a bad flu season, and as soon as the Covid deaths passed 60,000, Barry banned the guy. It’s a good thing Barry became a lawyer, because he wouldn’t last two days as a scientist. :) :p :D
A few weeks ago UD ran an article on John P.A. Ioannidis, a man with pretty respectable credentials. UD worried that he was going to become a un-person because of "attacks" (what normal people call criticism) on him for his cheery outlook on Covid-19.
Ioannidis published an article in STAT that included this:
|Some worry that the 68 deaths from Covid-19 in the U.S. as of March 16 will increase exponentially to 680, 6,800, 68,000, 680,000 … along with similar catastrophic patterns around the globe. Is that a realistic scenario, or bad science fiction?|
Jeeze, does anybody think we'll make it to 68,000?
Original UD article.
I’m old enough to remember when Barry said the deaths from COVID-19 would be “a fraction” of the annual flu deaths.
I mean, he’s right technically, in the sense that 5/2 is a fraction.
