Sean Davis from The Federalist tweeted some very interesting stuff yesterday morning about the Wuhan virus models and the expected impact on our country. And what do you know, the models were not that accurate. But the panic WAS real.
Here’s his tweet thread of actual statistics:
“State and local governments are being panicked into horrific decision-making by garbage models that have already been proven to be wildly wrong. Here’s what Covid Act Now predicted for TN by March 19: 190 hospitalizations. There were actually 15.”
“Covid Act Now claimed nearly 5,400 New Yorkers would’ve been hospitalized by March 19. The real number? Approximately 750. They claimed nearly 13,000 hospitalizations by March 23. The actual number was around 2,500.”
“Covid Act Now predicted that Georgia would have 688 hospitalizations by March 23. The state only had 800 total confirmed cases.”
“In Florida, Covid Act Now predicted over 400 hospitalizations as of March 19. According to the governor, that number was 90.”
“Covid Act Now predicted that 127 people in Oklahoma would be hospitalized by March 23 because of the Wuhan virus. As of yesterday, the entire state only had 81 confirmed cases.”
“According to Covid Act Now, Virginia was supposed to have hospitalized 342 Wuhan virus sufferers by March 23. As of an hour ago, there were 290 confirmed cases in the entire state, of which 45 were hospitalized. Starting to discern a pattern yet with these apocalyptic models?”
Here in our small town in Oklahoma, one of the hospitals has a drive-through testing set up for those who have symptoms of a high fever and cough. The first day there was a line of cars, from the picture I saw in the news. Since then, I’ve driven by it several times and have not seen ONE car in line.
Great job, “experts.”
