Predict the FINAL NUMBER of confirmed Coronavirus cases/deaths in the U.S. (Predictions ONLY)

I thought I would be way over. Now it looks like I'll be way under.
Many didn't take this pandemic threat seriously. Especially the right wing science deniers and CNN and MSNBC haters.

Chewable Clorox tablets, funny.
 
FW had the lead for 15 days, JK now up, summer should slow, I will guess JK to hold lead for 45 to 90 days. Probably will only post standings once a week since no position changes for a while. Changed bottom 5 to "Unl", unlikely

Far easier to take shots from the cheap seats, can't be wrong that way. This is what you do best.
 
With testing ramping up to huge levels - this week it'll be 300k /day, new cases should remain very high - that 2 million case threshold will come up fast.

The only thing they said was that Trump was a "racist" for cancelling China related flights.

The only people he stop from flying into America were Chinese Nationalist. 50,000 people still flew in from China after the bigoted travel restrictions were put in place. Also at that time, even 2 weeks prior, all major airlines already stop flights to and from China.

Valuist, now you tell us about Trump's European travel ban that excluded countries where Trump had golf resorts.

He added the Ireland and UK a couple days later. What is the relevance of the golf resorts? Who's going to play golf in the UK or Ireland in March when they have a residence in South Florida? Makes no sense.

Good point about the secondary effects of COVID-19.

Fear/worry is one of the effects.

Suicide, alcoholism and domestic abuse are other issues.

Why are we still "quarantining" the healthy?

The last pandemic (H1N1) lasted approximately 16 months when the World Health Organization declared an end to the world pandemic on August 10, 2010.

Geez, that would have been "maybe a good point for me to research before making my wager," lol.

Although it's not quite like there was a lot to be gained for the time in this particular contest. But I'd have felt real effing savvy knowing that.

As the line goes from I Robot, "that, detective, is the right question."

Brings to mind the Latin phrase: "cui bono?"
Who stands to gain?

Square, do you speak Latin or any foreign languages?

I'm still mad at my high school counselor for suggesting I take French 101 back in the late 1970's.

Ugh.

Spanish or Latin would have been the way to go.

Though, the smart language choice today, I understand, is Mandarin.

"Speak" would be a bit of an overstatement, in any of those languages.

Started with a year of Spanish in high school, but they didn't have a second year, so I did first year French instead the next year. And then stayed with French for 16 credit hours in college, because I'd already started, needed the language requirement for my liberal arts degree, and, well, the French version of Louisiana's Civil Code of 1825 still governs where there's been no intervening changes in a provision, and I was heading to law school.

And you pick up Latin phrases here and there, especially in law. There's always the internet these days to fill in the blanks.

Have dabbled with Spanish via sundry methods since college and law school -- it's more practical these days -- but I still speak Spanish mas o menos, mas menos que mas.

Was about to start dabbling instead in Mandarin as had been going out with a girl from Hunan, but she's currently stuck on the other side of the US after having gone back to the PRC for the lunar new year, so that's on hold for a bit.

Anyway -- immersion is the best way to learn a language. With Spanish, when I've gone south of the border and forced myself into situations where I needed to speak and understand the language to get through, my level of fluency has increased exponentially. You no doubt have picked up Spanish very well having spent all that time with Ticas in Costa Rica.
