Default Dooms Day modeling now being downplayed

As I said in a thread yesterday, the "experts" with their hundreds of thousands to millions death totals are now trying to back-track , with you not understanding what they said, or they did not have enough information to make accurate predictons.


God making fools of fools.

And there isn't a one of them who will ever admit they were wrong. They're just like TV weathermen. They predict a foot of snow and we get a half inch of rain. They never come on the next day and say they were wrong, they just say "Well, that low pressure ended up tracking farther south than we thought it would". Like it's the low pressure's fault!!!

All the experts predicted Hillary would win in 2016. The experts predicted Y2K would be a disaster. Yup, listen to the experts!!

One of the highest (and most questionable) death rate predictions comes from the Whitehouse.

Those who die are going to die, period. Throwing these Dooms Day numbers out there doing nothing except pad paid political connections.
Worst thing Pres. Trump does is listen to over paid experts who are really playing Three-Card-Monte.

Best to do nothing then try to comfort the families of those who die as a result. You know, just like we did in Iraq; invade, accomplish nothing except get thousands of young Americans killed... Then say to the families how sorry we are for their loss...

I am sure the retreat of predictions is a great comfort to those families who had someone die, especially the health care workers who tired to save others - I guess they had it coming since they chose that line of work.

How many health care workers have died so far?

My understanding is total deaths from all causes in the USA in 2019-20 is way under 2018-19 and 2017-18.

Just one story;

Judy Wilson-Griffin, a nurse at SSM Health St. Maryís Hospital in St. Louis, Missouri, died last week after testing positive for COVID-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus, according to the St. Louis American. In Georgia, two health care workers who tested positive for COVID-19 died: a 48-year-old woman who worked at Donalsonville Hospital and a 42-year-old mammogram technician at Piedmont Newnan Hospital, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported. And Kious Kelly, a 48-year-old assistant nursing manager at Mount Sinai West medical center in Manhattan, died Tuesday after he previously tested positive for COVID-19, according to the New York Post.

I also heard of a Dr. who died just recently (in the last few days)
