Why 100,000 Deaths from Covid 19 in the USA?

  1. Spain experienced a profoundly early onset followed closely by Italy.
  2. By Day 17 both countries were already experiencing over 100 deaths per day
  3. If you go into the spreadsheet view (link above) you will see cells marked green. This indicates the date of a massive public gathering in a certain country. We know that after a lot of community spread that soon after there will be symptoms and hospitalizations beginning in a 10–14 day range. For these countries marked with green cells huge festivals and sporting events occured and are thought to be a leading cause of these accelerations for Spain and Italy.
  4. Iran 12 days ago-over 1 million Iranians took to traveling to visit families for their New Year’s. This means it’s very likely their numbers will begin to climb in the next few days.
  5. I think it’s interesting that France stayed quite low until nearly a month had passed. I have no idea how or why.
  6. The UK is trending sharply upwards.
  7. China is not on this chart any longer but the highest daily death rate reported from them ever was 150 persons.
