I too like too make up stats to meet my own narrative

Odd question since it was likely to happen in April if it didnt happen in March.

We didn't have enough PPE by April
We didn't have enough testing by April
We didn't increase hospital capacity by April
All while experiencing exponential growth

Countries with lighter shutdown began those measures before wide spread community transmission. The US should have started mitigation measures in February but we missed that opportunity.

It’s odd to think there was a path to just tell everyone including the hot zoning NE to just go on as normal, keep riding those subways to the office to get to your desk!

The longest damage is virus loads changing consumer behavior beyond temporary gov lockdowns.

Lol what a waste I wouldn’t argue against that either. Good portion to me means concerning subset (ex: 10% of cases would certainly qualify), too large to ignore unlike an irrelevant portion (ex: 1 in 200, who cares?). That still means worrying about them, how they might spread it, moving interaction outside even if among asymptomatic, etc. If they prove harder to stop then could shoot up in share once you limit symptomatic spread with testing symptoms, sick day enforcement, etc. So become an even larger portion of risk you continue to face individually as total spread slows.

Bad decisions were made based on models that were ridiculously wrong. Now we are sticking with old and failed assumptions because it’s hard to admit a colossal public policy mistake.
