The limitation on models and expectations is learning what has happened in the past in similar circumstances, This isn't typical in any way. There is no fundamental change and there is no data of a similar situation on which to draw valid estimates. We're all guessing at this point. I'm an optimist and some are definitely pessimists.
While I have studied finance, this is not about anything other than a V bottom which I expect.
The chart is simply an example of a V bottom. Nothing more.
Implementation is crucial. But it will take effort from the top dogs to make their bureaucracies work.
Numbers aren't everything. People drive the numbers.
This is a PROJECTION based on my humble opinion of the underlying strength in the fundamentals which didn't go away because of the response to the virus. Think of post WWII America as pent up demand drove the economy sharply higher.
Says someone who read my brief post that DIDN'T mention the Stock Market.
Which Saul, the King or of Tarsus? Very different outcomes. Both used by God.
Someone help me out here. Is a Trans Woman a Biological Man pretending to be a Woman or a Biological Woman pretending to be a Man
What we are doing is to try and not get to those numbers. These numbers would be far greater if not for the actions taken.
Avoid extremism on this. The virus is real and spreading. But the fear mongering is too. Neither apocalyptics nor denial are helpful.
We have the best man possible in the White House to steer us through this quagmire where the treatment of one (Virus) adversely effects the other (economy).
I heard that another antibiotic can be substituted for those with heart conditions which doesn't have the adverse side effects of azethromycin for them so it's not one size fits all. That's what Doctors are for. Choose the best combination for each patient. Don't tie their hands. If there are shortages, work on production and distribution.
ps You forgot the Zinc.
They're quite busy right now.
Remember when you were a kid on a long trip and you asked if we were there yet? Would you have preferred that your parents just let you out of the car half way home just because they understood how much you wanted to be home?
Think about it.
Less Government is Liberal in the 18th century context. No government is anarchy and is Bigger Dog wins.
I consider myself a 18th century Liberal, a 19th century Rebel, a 20th century Conservative and a 21st Century MAGA.
Donations don't mean delivery. Also, how many doses for the course of treatment per patient? The numbers may not be that far apart. 10 pills per patient means 3 Million pills.
I personally think they should just do it by video ant have the press look at a screen. They would type questions rather than shout them to reduce contamination risks. The President could then choose which of the many questions he would answer, ignoring those which serve no informative purpose and are merely argumentative and self promoting.
ps Those attending the Press Briefings should be controlled by the President, not the Communists.
I bet you HATE right to try.
It's chicken and egg time. Was the model flawed because it didn't incorporate mitigation efforts put into place in response to the model? Perhaps.
Is thinking that mitigation efforts have had no effect on the results we are experiencing any less flawed?
There is HUGE uncertainty in both models and that's why we can't tell you today EXACTLY when we need to proceed with the next step in the fight to return to normalcy without sacrificing Millions.
Hope says sooner while FEAR says never or at least not soon.
I'm ecstatic we have this President in office Right Now. He was made for this. (Literally if you believe like I do that God places people in positions of leadership to accomplish his will,)
It is already used as a prophylactic for soldiers going into an area where there is risk of exposure to malaria, so using it the same way against any other disease poses equivalent risk. Just because there are some medications that shouldn't be used as a prophylactic, it doesn't mean this is in that category. It most definitely is not.
Ignoring the history of uses of this drug is also talking out of your ARSE.
I have no doubt that the biggest naysayers on using this drug are competitors who want a high dollar solution rather than a cheap cure.
The safety has been tested long ago. The only question is effectiveness and contra-indications. Even setting aside the anecdotal evidence, it won't hurt and it might cure. And it's cheap! Just do it.
Thank them for sending contaminated ventilators?
But you forget, They are never REALLY wrong. We just didn't understand the nuance of their statements as they remember them.
Now that system was devised by us DEPLORABLES, so it won't make sense to NE Elitist Snobs who always run for office as DEMONcRATS.
