COVID-19: The model behind Trump's numbers, and the numbers behind the model

On Tuesday, networks were once again ready to proclaim the day on which Donald Trump became president by noting that he stopped using third-grade nicknames long enough to deliver the message that as many as a quarter of a million Americans may die. Then he went right back to talking about the important things—like how great the ratings are when he steps out to tell Americans how they’re going to die. It all gives the distinct impression that, had Trump known that reading a daily death sentence out for hundreds of thousands of viewers, Trump would have scheduled a pandemic long before this. But as Trump runs his fingers across a chart that turns killing 240,000 Americans into a “goal,” it’s worth examining … where are these numbers coming from? And is the doom Trump is pronouncing really as certain as it seems?

CDC doctors warned about dangers of pandemic in 2018—yet another warning Team Trump ignored

Another day, another report on a recent pandemic warning ignored by the Trump administration. In 2018, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention held a day-long conference to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Spanish flu pandemic, with sessions like “Innovations for pandemic countermeasures.” “Are we ready to respond to a pandemic?” asked one of the doctors at the conference. “I fear the answer is no.” In one of many details that would seem over the top if this was all fictional, that doctor, Luciana Borio, was part of the National Security Council global health section that Donald Trump dismantled soon after the conference, making the U.S. even less ready to respond to a pandemic.
