‘Accurate’ estimate of Covid-19 casualties = US death toll to exceed 68,000


News 18

Scientists have developed a new mathematical model that they say can accurately estimate the death toll linked to the COVID-19 pandemic in the US, and around the world.

The model, published in the journal Mathematics, predicted that the death toll as a result of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus that causes COVID-19 in the US would eventually reach about 68,120…

“Based on data available on April 28, the model showed that the COVID-19 pandemic might be over in the US, meaning no more American deaths, by around late June 2020,” said Hoang Pham, a professor at Rutgers University in the US.

“But if testing and contact tracing strategies, social-distancing policies, reopening of community strategies or stay-at-home policies change significantly in the coming days and weeks, the predicted death toll will also change,” Pham said.

Just another reason to ignore the tripe issued periodically from the Trump Re-election Headquarters…somewhere in a bunker under the White House.
