Well, it would appear that those in charge seem to be admitting that their "doom and gloom" forecast was not accurate.
The Director of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Dr. Robert Redfield, even states in the following article, that "models should never be used to
assume that we have a number." Huh? Then why give those numbers to the media in the first place?
He states, "we didn’t really publicize the models." Huh? Seems to me those models were talked about just about every single day on MSM.
Then, Redfield implies that when the CDC "predicted" that 200,000 to 2 million Americans could die from the coronavirus pandemic, it was actually to
get the American public to pay attention to social distancing recommendations.
First, models are only as good as their assumptions. Obviously, there was a lot unknown about this virus.
And models should never be used to assume that we have a number. You saw those numbers are quite staggering. You’ve got 200,000 to 2 million
Americans are losing their lives before the fall. That’s a pretty staggering number.
CDC had models early on. We didn’t really publicize the models.
I think part of the importance of getting the American public’s attention that these models did, we really need the American public to be
fully engaged now with great rigor and vigilance on the social distancing.
These so-called "experts" were telling president Trump last week, that despite social distancing, 100,000 to 240,000 Americans could die
Published on March 31:
President Donald Trump warned of a "painful" and "tough" two-week stretch ahead as he extended nationwide distancing measures that -- even if
followed closely -- could still mean more than 100,000 and up to 240,000 Americans die from coronavirus.
Now all of a sudden, they claim the death toll could be "much, much much lower."
Were Wrong Again - Global Coronavirus Cases Appear to Have Peaked - Down 16% on April 4th and Then 15% on April 5th
California is one of the largest economies in the world, yet the entire state has been virtually shut down because 0.04%. of the
population has confirmed infections and 0.0009%. of the population has died from the virus.
Makes one wonder whether the virus was used as an excuse to invoke panic, cause an economic collapse and allow state and local officials to control
Shelter in place orders should've been followed only for those over the age of 60, or people who had compromised immune systems...NOT BY EVERYONE.
There was no reason to cause an economic collapse that resulted in millions of Americans losing their jobs and crippling the lives of small business
Now mental health call centers are overwhelmed with people calling in and drug overdoses and suicides are on the rise. All because of what? A BS
