Also, on the subject of “IHME changed its projections because quarantines were instituted and these measures worked:”
IHME’s projections that keep dropping off a cliff were done taking into account the quarantine and everybody observing social distancing:
This is the projection that was changed (once again) yesterday and brought the projected peak to the day after tomorrow and the projected number of deaths from 140,000 to 60,000. Initially, IHME went down from 140,000 to 90,000. Then, it went down some more. (I’m not discussing the fantasies about 30 million dead because these were never part of models developed by scholars at a respectable institution.)
Once again: the projection was always based on FULL social distancing being observed.
I recommend following IHME’s Twitter feed. They post the new projections as soon as they come in. People are now going to change the narrative about what really happened. The only way to resist the brainwashing is to check the actual data.
