President rejects CDC report of 3,000 deaths a day by June 1

15

The New York Times posted internal CDC documents dated April 30 that projects 3,000 deaths per day from coronavirus. That is nearly double the number now.

According to the Times, the projections are based on government modeling pulled together in chart form by the Federal Emergency Management Agency. The forecast is about 200,000 new cases each day by the end of the month, up from about 25,000 cases now.

The numbers underscore a sobering reality — the Times writes — While the United States has been hunkered down for the past seven weeks, not much has changed. And the reopening of the economy will make matters worse.

“While mitigation didn’t fail, I think it’s fair to say that it didn’t work as well as we expected,” Scott Gottlieb, Mr. Trump’s former commissioner of food and drugs, said Sunday on the CBS program Face the Nation. “We expected that we would start seeing more significant declines in new cases and deaths around the nation at this point. And we’re just not seeing that.”

On Sunday, Mr. Trump said deaths in the United States could reach 100,000, twice as many as he had forecast just two weeks ago.

The message, of course, is that we must continue as is or worse.

BAD MITIGATION DOESN’T WORK

However, there are businesses that could open by following mitigation guidelines. The question shouldn’t be an arbitrary decree of what is essential, but rather, what can open fairly safely, as Bill Barr has stated.

The people who should be quarantined are target groups, not everyone. What we are doing is clearly not sustainable, as Swedish officials have said.

Cuomo shouldn’t put the most vulnerable aged people in nursing homes. They need to be in hospitals. The governor and mayor of New York City should have cleaned the subway months ago as they said they would. People on subways should have worn masks months ago. That’s just for starters.

The problem with their mitigation is the way they are doing it.

Also, so far, all of CDC predictions based on the IMHE have been wrong. Their modeling is a complete failure.

PRESIDENT TRUMP DISAVOWS THE REPORT

The White House responded that the new projections had not been vetted.

“This is not a White House document nor has it been presented to the Coronavirus Task Force or gone through interagency vetting,” said Judd Deere, a White House spokesman. “This data is not reflective of any of the modeling done by the task force or data that the task force has analyzed.”

“The president’s phased guidelines to open up America again are a scientific-driven approach that the top health and infectious disease experts in the federal government agreed with,” he said.

The Times doesn’t want the government to open.

THE NY TIMES BLATANTLY LIES

The times used the opportunity of this article to bash the president and then claim SOS Pompeo is going against the intelligence reports on China.

The Times writes: Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was even more explicit, saying on Sunday that the coronavirus originated in a research laboratory in Wuhan, China, where the virus first appeared.

Then they said as if it was the same thing: That conflicts with the judgment of most virologists and of U.S. intelligence agencies, which say that the virus was “not man-made or genetically modified.”

The truth is Secretary Pompeo said it was NOT man-made but it most likely came from the Wuhan laboratory in error. The Times is counting on misleading people here.

  1. Sooner or later the truth will come out that China did create this virus in a lab to serve as a biological weapon, a pandemic, then create a vaccine to cure it. They intentionally killed their own people, then spread it worldwide, COMMUNISTS ARE EVIL, look at their history through MAO.

  2. I guess we are suppose to “trust all doctors”. But step back, and look back. Most everyone complains about “insurance companies”, Now. But what prompted insurance companies to regulate compensation. Years ago there were countless problems with doctors “padding the bill”, so to speak, and it was widespread. So insurance companies had to cut costs and one method was to have doctors on staff to scrutinize claims. Just as doctors went too far then, undoubtedly some insurance companies may be doing the same.

    There were reports in the past where doctors have been compensated by drug manufacturers in some ways. How does this play into the equation of what they are recommending and how is it reflecting the analysis. I heard one doctor on Newsmax dispute and dismiss any positive effects of HCQ. There sure seems to be worldwide reports to the contrary. So “why” would a doctor Make such a statement. We need to know much more about Each doctor when they make statements on TV. How do some of those doctors even have time for patients when they are on TV during the morning, on Sirius for a couple hours in the afternoon. Well, maybe look at a person’s time in the hospital and the Total time a doctor comes to see a patient. It’s for a few minutes, Maybe, once a day.

    Normally a person could say there is a lacking of timely and accurate reporting, but we Have heard Birx say the states are doing quite well in this matter. So, Why, does the CDC report 38,576 “Covid deaths”. This chart is of serious concern considering the numbers plastered Constantly all over the media.

    • You might have trouble believing this but the overwhelming factors driving costs in the medical and insurance sectors are the legal and bureaucratic communities. This even holds true for socialized countries where physicians are underpaid and insurance payouts much more limited.

      • I was speaking about long before lawyers were so prevalent in filing suit. More recently and ever increasing is the burdensome coding system. The problem is, one thing leads to another. But still, doctors are at the center. I would ask, how did my Mother accumulate boxes and boxes full of bottles of drugs. I had no idea until after her death and going through the house. They key is, in the end Medicare paid for it.

  3. The states, at least mine, aren’t representing valid information. On a site for the state, linked by Worldmeter, says the “mortality rate” is 2.8%. This is Pure Bunk. First of all what is the definition of “mortality rates”.

    “is a measure of the number of deaths in a particular population, scaled to the size of that population, per unit of time.”

    What did the state do. All they did was take the “confirmed cases” divided by the total deaths. That’s not a mortality rate. When calculated appropriately the Real ‘mortality rate’ is 0.2%. But that doesn’t “look” bad enough, so let’s just drop the per population rate altogether. If they calculated FLU in the same way that mortality may be 10% or greater. Maybe much much greater since most flu cases aren’t tested. The really bad part of all this is the media.

    It’s pretty interesting ‘ol Dr. Gottlieb is Now saying this. During this time all the Apocalyptics were telling us to listen to the good doctor because the lockdown would solve everything and less people would suffer, and the economy would benefit. It’s as if doctors can’t or don’t have any kind of agenda. Give Me A Break.

  4. It’s Really getting hilarious out there. NOW, the CDC numbers on the flu CANNOT be relied upon. They are only estimates. BUT, we can rely on the CDC for accurate Covid statistics. Oh, wait, until the numbers now show 38,000 for Covid only. Why is it the ones who are adamant in their positions are those who have no need for a job, or already work at home, or Can work at home. Everyone who is out of a job will be just fine. No worries.

  5. It’s obvious that the existing figures have an exaggerated numerator (reports of assigning cause of death inaccurately) and a deflated denominator (tests show more people infected by a factor of 5-10). The establishment has demonstrated complete lack of reliability. The only pattern of the establishment is the consistent effort to cause panic.

  6. Our local media was reporting confirmed cases and deaths by city and county. Then they start adding counties and the numbers would continue to go up. If you did not pay attention you would barely notice the number of counties. Then, of course, they dropped the information on how many counties were in the count. Who knows what the numbers mean now, but they are going up.

  7. Are health officials concerned results don’t meet expectations.

    And guess who questions credibility, Dr. Gottlieb. Oh, what’s this; He serves on the board of Pfizer and biotech firm Illumina. Surely that wouldn’t influence his opinion At All. “We’re from the Government and we’re here to help”. Sure, sure.

  8. Why would we trust the CDC, et al to tell the truth? They have been best buds with the WHO, the best buds with the Chicoms and defenders of same. Trust? Nah, not even close.
    Fauxi and the scarf lady have been blowing smoke up our posteriors since this whole scam began. Time to end it and thoroughly investigate the whole bs from begining to end.
    Bet it ends up exposing a money trail for the two esteemed doctors. At the least.
    Just sayin’.

  9. First of all the CDC and hospitals need to stop forcing doctors to list CV19 as the cause of death when folks die of anything from a bus accident to falling over a cliff. Then talk to me about death rates. The cat is out of the bag. This is literally no worse than the flu. And the demographic at-risk is the same as the flu. Stop this frog-march to Socialist ruin and open the country. We aren’t fooled anymore. And for the love of God, Mr. POTUS…ditch the Globalist quacks Fauci and Birx.

  10. Not to point out the obvious, but has anyone gotten a report regarding the number of daily deaths this year as compared to last year during the same time? This would filter out the over reporting issue (people who died from other issues, but were also COVID-19 positive), if we don’t see a significant increase in the statistics (at least one σ unit), then this pandemic was a Dempanic by the DemonRats to sow seeds of division. FYI, in 2017 the AVERAGE daily death rate was 7,700 for just the US, and on average 3,000 people were killed by pneumonia ALONE per week, so how does that compare to the numbers today?
