Social distancing is occurring. Stimulus is on the way, (although much more is likely needed). Doctors and nurses are working around the the clock to save lives.
America has awakened with a purpose over the course of the last few weeks, as we battle an invisible enemy that has swept across the globe with a terrifying speed. Outside of the front line, where the aforementioned medical professionals are working to save lives at a lightning pace, the war against COVID-19 is a much calmer ordeal. We as Americans have been tasked with staying home, staying away from one another, and essentially starving the illness in the process.
If both pieces of this puzzle work in tandem, and “perfectly”, then Dr. Deborah Birx believes that she knows what the best case scenario will be in terms of a death toll.
“I think everyone understands now that you can go from five to 50 to 500 to 5000 cases very quickly,” Birx said.
“I think in some of the metro areas we were late in getting people to follow the 15-day guidelines” she added.
Birx said the projections by Dr. Anthony Fauci that U.S. deaths could range from 1.6 million to 2.2 million deaths is a worst case scenario if the country did “nothing” to contain the outbreak, but said even “if we do things almost perfectly,” she still predicts up to 200,000 U.S. deaths.
This number, coming from such a renowned expert, has put a renewed emphasis on China’s reported death toll of 3,300 persons – a number that seems unlikely at best, and a deadly international coverup at worst.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
