I have got a lot to teach you lol
Where to start...How about... Why is it now June 1st, not April 12th (Easter Sunday), as suggested a? And 300,000 cases, which was going to be zero really soon? The president clearly didn't listen to what he was being told until recently.Most of the red tape being knocked down is in the EPA, and making air quality worse is just what people need when there's a pandemic of a respiratory illness.There's an estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants, I think, in the US. That's about 3% of the population. If everyone else chipped in $200, you'd be giving them nearly $20,000 each. Seems unlikely.On the other hand, the $500B going to businesses who are still free to fire their employees costs US citizens $1500 each, then there's the $1.5T funnelled into the stock market, that's three times as much, and didn't they do that more than once?It's amazing how much money can be found to support businesses, while millions lose their employer-based health insurance...
@goaded All I know is our world leaders made this happen on purpose to reshape the world. People worrying about who will win the 2020 election are just clueless no matter who wins the people pulling the strings will control them.
@goaded Also votes don't count in any big election so that is what I was referring to when talking to this girl here.
@Mijopapiii Oh, nonsense. Stuff happens.
@goaded All this flatten the curve talk makes me feel like it is a flat earth reference and they are fucking with us.
@Mijopapiii It's not that complicated, it's the Micawber Principle:"Annual income twenty pounds, annual expenditure nineteen nineteen and six, result happiness.Annual income twenty pounds, annual expenditure twenty pounds ought and six, result misery." (Old English money, think income $100, expenditure $99.90, or $100.10.)If your hospitals can't cope with the number of cases at any given moment, people will die who didn't need to. People will still die, but not for want of care. People can affect how many cases there are at a time by being sensible.
I had to start smoking meth after reading this.

Each sick person infects 2 people per week. We still aren't testing enough. Testing as they have in s Korea and Germany flattens the curve.
Testing made a difference, but all that big of one. It only affects the number of known cases.However, the number of deaths is a pretty unimpeachable figure.Three weeks or more ago, the ratio of deaths to cases was over 4% (only very sick people getting tested), that dropped to 1.23% (more testing of not so sick people who are less likely to die), but has climbed again to over 2.5% (presumably still only testing of people with symptoms).More or less simultaneously, the rate of increase of cases peaked at nearly 50%, on the 19th (lots more testing), now it's down to 13% a day (doubling every 5-6 days, maybe exceeding the number of tests?), however, deaths have been increasing by nearly 25% per day on average (doubling every 3 days).
Do they have particularly good testing here in Germany? My daughter went to the doctor's with flu symptoms, and they didn't test her; that was at the beginning, though.
Lets hope so
dS/dt = -b*S*IdI/dt = b*S*I - g*IdR/dt = g*I
