Especially if tomorrow it’s 700.
Don’t believe me, or even Baghdad Bob, though.
Follow it yourself at the Johns-Hopkins COVID-19 tracking page.
Ignore case numbers if you like; we’ve only been testing for a couple of weeks, really. And we expected those to blossom as soon as they started doing tests.
But AFAIK, we aren’t blending Kung Flu deaths with deaths from heart attacks or flu.
So deaths are real. IOW, we lost more people in the last 2 days as we lost in the six weeks before that. Got your attention there, did we? Welcome to exponential growth.
That means in the next week, it’s only going to keep going up every day.
NYFC is losing someone every 24 minutes now. I’m sure actually it’s just fine there, though, and this is all just hype and hoax. I heard that on the Internet. Bummer if your relative was one of the 600 today though. That’s the breaks, I guess.
How long will this keep climbing?
No one can say for sure. Possibly into mid-summer. Maybe longer.
We’re at this point with only 115K confirmed cases.
That only leaves 329,900,000 other Americans yet to infect.
That’s a paltry 1.6% CFR.
