IHME projections, the sad fact is, vaccine or no vaccine ....

The current projection from the IHME model indicates 502,000 dead by April 1st or 483,000 dead with rapid vaccine rollout.  With 306,500 dead tonight (World-o-meter), that still means 176,000 to 196,000 more will die before most people will get the vaccine.

 Entirely avoidable and unnecessary because some percentage of Americans just don't care enough and won't listen to reason.

Haven't you heard, there are 15 cases, and soon there will be none.   And, it’s just the damn flu anyway.   No worries.....

Re: It is a fact that trump threatened to fire ....

It is a known fact that just the other day, trump threatened to fire the head of the FDA  if he didn't approve this vaccine. And it's fact that RNA vaccines are an entirely new technology that's never been used this way or on this scale before.  It is only prudent that people be a little cautious about it.

Besides, if we've learned anything thing these past four years, if we didn't already know it, it's that trump suffers from very poor judgement, is entirely selfish, and can't be trusted to make rational decisions about anything, to say nothing as serious as this.  Remember, it was just ten months ago that trump made the decision to deliberately downplay the seriousness of this virus that has unnecessarily led to the inevitable deaths of at least 500,000 Americans.

Glad you're confirming what I said.

I'd be a fool to claim that I have a handle on all the variables- deaths will begin to be statistically influenced by vaccination within a month.

Still, we'll go into that point north of 3K deaths and probably close to 300K cases per day. 

Outcome might be that we're not counting on the many less vulnerable people who wouldn't have died but will when the system is overloaded.

I do wonder about the level of basic scientific illiteracy. You don't have to be scientifically illiterate to be a denier if you're a big enough butthead- just takes a more urgent agenda. But I wonder how many people think the vaccine is a cure for the infected or other interesting things.

It was Trump who ordered travel restrictions with China while Nancy Pelosi and Bill BeBlasio was encouraging mass gatherings for the chinese new year. Trump warned in the state of the union about the virus but Pelosi tore the speech to shreds claiming it was nothing but lies. She claimed Trump's moves on travel was nothing but racist as she insisted on more impeachment witnesses. If her and Bullschiff had spent their hearing time on corona instead of impeachment the country would have been more prepared.Karen Jen has already said she is glad God sent the virus because like all good communist it is just another good crisis they can use to their advantage.

Your personal fantasy land is pretty standard, not as interesting as SammyQ’s.

Democrats said not to take the vaccine.  Anyone who dies now is completely on them.

Oh, Ron, have you seen this study:

The high death rates of patients surveyed who already had a DNR, points to the fact that the study “indicates that many patients who died in these hospitals were quite ill to begin with.”
