Former President George W. Bush called on Americans to abandon partisan divides in the face of the “shared threat” of the coronavirus pandemic in a video released on Saturday.
More than a million Americans have tested positive for coronavirus, and well over 60,000 people have died from the virus in the United States. The White House has said it expects total deaths to rise to 74,000 by August.
Not that I care for any advice from George Bush, but I went to the link above from April 28, 2020 for total deaths of 74,000:
The model, produced by researchers at the University of Washington’s Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation and frequently referenced by top administration officials, modified its forecast to a projected 74,073 deaths in the U.S. by August 4 — with an estimate range of 56,563 to 130,666.
At the time of the publication’s last update, the projected low end deaths in the US had already been exceeded. The forecast of 74,073 deaths will be exceeded in another week, not August 4. Another analysis by “experts”.
As events continue, we still have no masks. Imagine if masks were provided (instead of helicopter money) to anyone who wanted them. This may have been as effective as flattening the curve as quarantines. As we look at the results in Sweden, people may look to John McAfee for practical advice concerning our next step.
