I’d like for there to be a scientific consensus here.  I hear mixed responses with a partisan tone each way in the reporting around this. (Not from you Keikla, I mean in media)
 

anecdotally, India, which has cities more densely populated than NYC has a death rate per million of 0.9...coincidence that anti-malarials are pervasive?  I don’t have the data to answer that.

 

This article does a decent job of explaining the politicization of hydroxychloroquine

It is amazing how something that was completely discredited weeks ago pops back up. Let's do the Russia thing next.

Redid the lie of Trump calling the corona virus a hoax this morning, so might as well retell the imaginary Trump/Russian collusion story again too.

This about sums up the rational why we can't open up in some area.  Saw this on a Twitter feed.

If you have 50 minutes a very good address by Alex Berenson and modeling.

Testing is a lagging indicator. It tells you what has happened, not what will. Before some say it ... 

All models are wrong; some are useful. Never forget that truism from a British statistician (Box). 

We still have my figurative band aid to pull off. Governor Burgum started pulling faster today.

The first 12 minutes outlining the limitations and bias of modeling were great and completely accurate. He acknowledged that this is not his area of expertise, but this is a compilation of speculations and data he has found. His framing of how assumptions are changed to update models is a little dramatic (emprical college model). That is how models for new subjects work. They start extreme with large bounds and update variables continuously based on newfound information to refine the model. This is not new or hidden. 

As far as IHME model goes, he was correct it couldn't accurately measure beds required. To be fair no model could. The assumptions IHME made on relatively immeasurable variables were not exactly accurate, which means their estimates will not match exactly what the USA is experiencing. Needing data points from 50 municipalities and data lagging does not help with updating the models to make them relevant. Most scientists would not call a model wrong simply because the assumptions did not fit their need. Despite inaccuracies, the government has to pick what they deem is the best model based off the assumptions made. The government will then use the model to make informed decisions. This will not likely change moving forward. I'd like to believe if the model said 60k deaths and government made decisions solely off the model, rarely any municipalities would have closed. ND especially would not have closed if they based it solely off the models.

He mentions a 3-4% antibody presence in our population means the case fatality rate is less than 1%, perhaps less than 0.5%. Yet earlier in the video he contradicts himself and says it may not be as severe as the flu, which has a case fatality rate of 0.1%. He has a take-my-word for it stance on serology testing validity, which I will remain skeptical of for now until more work is done in the field. I agree with his assumption of 0.5%-1% and have suggested this range before. Keep in mind this range is 5 to 10 times deadlier than the worst flu season we've experienced in the past two decades. 

Overall he is very well spoken, but I do not think his video really advances any specific narrative and is mostly for click-baiting/generating revenue. Most of the models predicting the future of the disease are seemingly irrelevant in the discussion now. Majority of governors have moved away from mentioning these models in their briefings and have recently transitioned to case/hospitalization decline as their key metric for incremental changes.

If you count having +/-10 kids playing volleyball and/or basketball this past week with the beautiful weather nights...then yes. My youngest daughter did a small group (6 kids) soccer training session with one of her coaches yesterday at a local field as well. My oldest daughter and I went to Sickies last night for supper too then to Walmart to grab an item we needed but you can feel free to keep your crew holed up until....... Safer at home right?

Is this correct?

 

They've got ND and several other states listed as zero covid deaths. Appears to be a significant lag with their new reporting.

Fauci speaking under oath?   Yea that ain't happening.      

 

This adds some context.

But the White House said they will allow Fauci to testify at a Senate Health Committee hearing on May 12, a spokesperson for committee Chairman Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., told NBC news.

Fauci, the head of the National Institutes of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, has been a key adviser in the Trump administration's fight against the coronavirus, and until recently, a fixture at the White House coronavirus briefings. He's also sat for numerous media interviews on the virus, including on sports podcasts.

In a statement, White House spokesman Judd Deere said the May 6 hearing is not an "appropriate" time for Fauci to go before the House.

The presentation was accurate.  Including criticism of Ferguson model(imperial). Ferguson has been a extreme on models.  It's only wrong if you over shoot.  

IHME model was $#+&)@ from the beginning and still is.  The revised model for ND April 29 predicts 3 deaths a day for 20 days in May.  These models can't predict a week in advance enen after revision.

Yes most people have moved on from models because they are garbage.  

Alex mentioned more deaths for over 90 year old than under 50 year old.

NY screwed themselves on late shutdown and terrible mismanagement of nursing home etc.

ESPN is reporting that the NFL has no intention of changing anything for the upcoming season as of this time. The regular-season opener will take place on September 10, and the Super Bowl is going to be played on February 7, 2021, with the idea that fans will be in attendance. NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said that the league does “plan to start on time.”

I believe one of the medical terms used to describe the other wounds is bankruptcyitis.

I am not one who has locked myself or family in.  I haven’t been on this board talking about my kids needing to socialize.  I’ve been pretty consistent thinking they could socialize and go to school/sports since March.  If I wasn’t willing to allow them to play with friends, why should have I expected the schools to be ready?  Glad you got out.  It was a good day yesterday.
