Just for perspective though if you want to stick with that number. The US Population is 328 Million People. Figure the 70% that is an estimate to have 'herd immunity' is in place. 596,960 people in the US will die. On the low end that's a 21% death rate increase for the US. With the .6% rate that's been far more consistent would put that around 1.5 million. Let's call it a range of 600k-1.8 Million realistically without a vaccine immediately present.
Those are just the deaths though, that is not the hospitalization rate which is pretty consistently 5% across most age groups, which if it skyrockets will result in non-COVID deaths just because you can't handle the normal heart attacks, car crashes, etc. Just as a note, our cases in Texas have been going up between 1%-3% per day since May 13th had a 4% increase. As of this moment we are at 4% reported today on the numbers I've been tracking from John Hopkins University. That number will likely at least slightly increase by their 10:30pm or 11:30pm update. Our case rate has been increasing in frequency along with that hospitalization rate - belying the excuse that it's because we're testing more people. Add in the fact that here in Nueces County, Judge Canales specifically said they don't have enough testing kits to test as much as they need to. I can't imagine we're alone there!
I know we would love to say we're done with this - but we're not. I just saw one school district has cancelled their summer workouts. I know others haven't been allowed back. It was clear from the UIL meeting that was streamed today it's clear that UIL is planning to move ahead no matter what it seems though.
