They annexed the Sudetenland?

If it makes you feel any better, our numbers will never get that low so we don't have to worry about a resurgence. We're just going to live in a...surgence.

Since I was the owner,  everything from the heartbreak of Psoriasis to slowing
sales in other shops was now all my fault. True, I am a deviant of sorts.
(HA! Bad pun.) There is an AI making magical discoveries for me in the shop now,
a small one in the back. An AI that did sorts of a massive data-base, looking for
scores.
Then tested them. Long, protracted messy tests, usually at night. A surprising
number of the tests involved blood-curdling screams too.
Fans get rid of the smoke and bleeding is quiet. Usually

Ah, I see, they mention the KochInstitute. They also mention a sub-1 r0, which would mean it's still going in the right direction.

There was even a Dr quoted in the article that said they are. Regardless no one is going to be able to stay in lockdown for

Forever so it guess they will just have to tweak it as best they can.

Flattening the curve does not change the total area under the curve. Eventually, everyone gets infected, until herd immunity is achieved. It does potentially allow time to discover effective treatments, which unfortunately don't seem to exist, yet.
/ still waiting for effective masks for everyone.
// still waiting for ppe for medical people.
/// still waiting for scientific answers to many important questions about incubation, mutation rate, reinfection, and maximum period of contagiousness, and reliability of tests regarding false negatives and false positives.

More importantly, it keeps healthcare infrastructure from being overwhelmed. Wuhan and Italy show what happens when it does - people who would have survived don't.

Fundamentally, that's what flatten the curve is about. Keeping the rate of infection low enough that it can be handled. We could have just kept going about our business, and we would have probably seen roughly 2.2M deaths in the US, instead of the 60K right now.

Which is the infuriating thing about the GOP. I can only assume their anger comes from the fact that they were promised 2.2 million deaths and they've been shorted 2.1M of them.

You aren't allowed to say this. It interferes with the groupthink.
