This is the best possible outcome?
White House coronavirus task force coordinator Dr. Deborah Birx delivered an ominous best outcome scenario for the coronavirus outbreak. Brix claimed that if everything is done “almost perfectly, there could be up to 200,000 deaths in the country.
According to Breitbart, “I think everyone understands now that you can go from five to 50 to 500 to 5,000 cases very quickly,” Birx said.
“We’ve looked at the Italy data with their self-isolation, and that’s where we come up with if we do things together well, almost perfectly, we could get in the range of 100,000 to 200,000 fatalities. We don’t even want to see that,” she went on to say.
“Well, the best-case scenario would be 100% of Americans doing precisely what is required,” she said. “But we’re not sure based on the data that you’re sharing from around the world and seeing these pictures that all of America is responding in a uniform way to protect one another. So, we also have to factor that in. Cities that don’t social distance, that don’t stay at home, that believe you can have social interactions, that believe you can have gatherings in homes of 20 and 10 people even, that is going to spread the virus, even if everyone looks well.”
