Which means that many of the projections both globally and for the US, based as they are on exponential growth that no longer exists, will be off the mark by orders of magnitude.
“Basic Math,” SLL, 3/25/20
The “official” US death projections has been revised down from 1 to 2 million to 60,000, or two orders of magnitude. Similar revisions of projected global deaths are in order. The CDC says that 24,000 to 62,000 died in US from non-coronavirus flu this past flu seasons, which means if the 60,000 projection is correct, this was no worse than a bad flu. Daily confirmed coranavirus cases and deaths are falling in the US and around the globe. The coronavirus outbreak is starting to wane.
Here’s another SLL prediction: the damage to civil liberties and the global economy is just beginning. In the US, we’re due for the second leg down of the stock market crash, and it will take decades of dedicated effort to unwind the damage the government and Federal Reserve are now inflicting on the economy and financial markets. As for civil liberties, we’ve now allowed the government to lock us in our homes—house arrest. Are there any civil liberties left to destroy? Here’s the latest from the global shop of horrors:
