Six days ago I asked:
In that article I speculated that a small uptick on one of the CDC’s FluView graphs might be the first sign of covid-19 cases in official statistics.
That graph just updated with another week’s data and sure enough, the uptick has grown dramatically.
It’s now clear that the uptick shows covid-19 cases. I marked it with a red arrow in the graph below.
That uptick, that little upward curving line marked by the red arrow, means that parts of the US are about to become like Lombardy. ICUs will be overrun and patients will be turned away to die.
This could have been avoided. The US could have done what South Korea has done. But it didn’t do those things because US federal officials are incompetent. It’s not just Trump. It’s HHS, CDC, FDA, and Congress. Utterly incompetent. And now hundreds of thousands and maybe millions of people are going to die unnecessarily.
