Trade Adviser Warned White House in January of Risks of a Pandemic
Correcting Recent U.S. Weekly Death Statistics for Incomplete Reporting « Roy Spencer, PhD
To note average deaths in the US peak mid January, during 3 of the past 5 years there was a plateau of high death levels from Jan through mid April.
This data is through the CDC, Spenser is adjusting for late reporting based on past years. The severity of the 2017-2018 flu season is striking.
What's your point here?
Of course you haven't seen any evidence of it. But judge, though. Because rEpUbLiCaN. In the end, the constitution only grants the federal government the ability to suggest. Trump doesn't even have full control of his own party, so suggesting is what the limit is. They can either take his suggestions or not. In the end, it's up to the state. That's how our government works.
All those needlessly lost lives in 2017. 80,000 people dead as a result of a virus that could have easily been contained by simply forcing everyone to stay home and shutting down a large part of the economy.
I'm positive that those 80,000 dead, many of whom were children, were mourned in the same way by the upstanding people of this forum.

We are social distancing because if we weren't the deaths would be much much higher than 100k.
So, we are back to the bad flu people
Interesting stuff...how the Libertarian Party is reacting to this:

Computer models are only as good as the assumptions built into the model.
No, I'm judging because they're not issuing stay-at-home orders in the midst of a pandemic, like 42 of their peers have. The fact that they happen to all be Republicans is just the reality of the situation. And you're right, we only have a GOP Governor on record saying he wouldn't issue the order until the task force tells him to do so but you're right, the President doesn't have any control over what the task force says or does because federalism.
NY deaths had largest increase in 24hr period yet.
Infected numbers have gone down.
Suppose it makes sense as the deaths now are resulting from infections a week or two ago.
If the numbers/logic hold, seems NY will see deaths increase for a week or so, and then begin to decline so long as the infection numbers continue to decrease.
He also mentioned NJ is still rising.
Anyone know how Mass is doing? Curve up/down?
I would ask you what the magic number is at which you start pretending to care, but clearly we've already passed that number this year, since you're here losing your mind about every death reported to date.
3 million people die every year in the US. 60 million people die worldwide. What's the world without a couple million more?

For someone claiming to be very logical, you lack basic reasoning skills.
That's a good question. I suppose it is when the number of people who need to be hospitalized cannot get admitted because all the beds are taken.
The second part - it's sad when you cant show empathy for people who lose loved ones. It's just a statistic until it happens to somebody you care about.
It's been up and down.
Up yesterday, down again today.
People are reading too much into one and two day death tolls and falsely saying it’s a downward trend. Like the other day the daily went from 630 to 590 and people were claiming small variance was a sign it was trending down.
So many false reports that this is “trending downward” like in NYC.
After it hit roughly a high-ish number in Italy (around 700), for another month it lingered between 600-900 per day (if my memory is correct.)
You shouldn’t assume that Stairway isn’t a total, epic loser with no girlfriend or family. I think we’ve found another Incel. Yes, we have.
We've got a ways to go then.
I think someone posted a similar graph yesterday (you?).
I don’t think that's showing it's down today. It just defaults to zero until numbers are reported.
