I doubt it, about 3 weeks ago another dire prediction came out, it said we would have 140,000 dead by july 1, at that time we were just passing 120K - well we have 1 day to go and it's unlikely we even hit 130K. So in a prediction looking 3 weeks out they missed it by 50%. not even close.
That friedman guy(former head of something under obama) was on the sunday shows yesterday, he talked about how bad things are going, how dangerous it was to reopen, all dire stuff, then he was asked about deaths and why they're still dropping and have fallen so far. He blathered on about lagging indicators, etc, then he made his mistake - he told the truth, he said another 15000 people will die in july - which would avg 500/day. We are above that now, we haven't gotten anywhere near that low yet. So after all that busllshit about exploding cases, rushed reopenings, ignoring science, he basically admitted that deaths will keep dropping.
Which means he lied through his teeth, his agenda is only to scare, to drum up fear.
After nov 4th it doesn't matter, i think the spring peak in hospitalizations was 66K, the july one about 56K, that vaccine should be here in a few weeks to a month, if they do the old geezers first that should cut into it.

How a fake persona laid the groundwork for a Hunter Biden conspiracy deluge
A 64-page document that was later disseminated by close associates of President Donald Trump appears to be the work of a fake "intelligence firm."
If we can get up to 18k-20k+ by Christmas, we might get some bargains on properties soon. all these young millenials that bought or rent recently are going to go home for the holidays and rich mom and dad will convince them to move back to the burbs from their "city life" of covid closures, shootings, and riots.
meanwhile the cutting edge gentrifying neighborhoods are seeing record #'s of old minority homeowners dying. Many families are not or will not be able to pay the taxes on the home when the Patriachs or matriachs pass. lots of mid and long term opportunities there, as minorities continue their steady stream out of the city.
all these big companies currently building more high rise condos and hotels here in the West Loop and it's already turned into a ghost town
