  • NYC expected to see 876 deaths during Thursday’s “peak”
  • More experts warn deaths being undercounted in NYC
  • Germany releases plan to get “back to normal” by April 19

  1. You might want to check a couple of those numbers. The UK lists 51000 infected, and almost 6000 dead, not 50000 dead. The distinction is important.

  2. The numbers are being cooked, a bunch I’d bet. Rumor has it-it’s all rumors-if you get killed by a train and the remnants test positive you are a wuflu stat.

    What happens next year when some schmoe in Bangkock gets the next virus from tainted panda testicles? Do we shut the whole county down out of an abundance of caution?

    And the next year?
