    Dr. Birx: Coronavirus Data Doesn't Match The Doomsday Media Predictions

    Dr. Birx: Coronavirus Data Doesn't Match The Doomsday Media Predictions

    Dr. Blix says the models do not even support 20% of Americans getting sick. Why are the "media" and the dems fear-mongering?

    White House coronavirus task force member Dr. Deborah Birx warned the public not to panic when they hear about models and projections of the pandemic's spread.


    "Models are models," she said. "When people start talking about 20% of a population getting infected, it's very scary, but we don't have data that matches that based on our experience."


    She said the media should not "make the implication that when they need a hospital bed it's not going to be there, or a ventilator, it's not going to be there, we don't have evidence of that."


    "It's our job collectively to assure the American people," she also said. "There is no model right now -- no reality on the ground where we can see that 60% to 70% of Americans are going to get infected in the next eight to 12 weeks. I want to be clear about that."


    DR. DEBORAH BRIX: I'm sure you have seen the recent report out of the U.K. about them adjusting completely their needs. This is really quite important. If you remember, that was the report that says there would be 500,000 deaths in the U.K. and 2.2 million deaths in the United States. They've adjusted that number in the U.K. to 20,000. Half a million to 20,000. We are looking at that in great detail to understand that adjustment.


    I'm going to say something that is a little bit complicated but do it in a way we can understand it together. In the model, either you have to have a large group of people who a-asymptomatic, who never presented for any test to have the kind of numbers predicted. To get to 60 million people infected, you have to have a large group of a-symptomatics. We have not seen an attack rate over 1 in 1,000. So either we are measuring the iceberg and underneath it, are a large group of people. So we are working hard to get the antibody test and figure out who these people are and do they exist. Or we have the transmission completely wrong.


    So these are the things we are looking at, because the predictions of the model don't match the reality on the ground in China, South Korea or Italy. We are five times the size of Italy. If we were Italy and did all those divisions, Italy should have close to 400,000 deaths. They are not close to achieving that.

    Because they think it gives them the chance to get Trump out of Office. Basically it comes down to the Democrats and the Lame Stream Media are deviates.

    Nope and Cuomo the great got busted for using it to scare people. Or he is not as smart as people think. It is one of the two.

    This guys gets well deserved credit for handling a problem. That starts to go to his head and now he is playing to the crowd. He is like a kid that was dancing and people giggled. He was just doing his thing. But hey the crowd thinks I am funny? I love that attention! Now the kid is dancing uncontrollably and looks stupid playing to the crowd.
    The Dem Party has done more to harm this country the last 4 years than Russia. They blame Trump for their fit throwing actions. That is total BS. Shameful.

    She's just a Trump lackey. What does she know.
    Political tags - such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth - are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire.

    Remember it was these drastic models, that Dr. Brix refutes, that lead to near-global social distancing. Cue the "media" and most people are too frightened to question the official narrative.

    I think he was briefed on it and that is why he said he was aiming for Easter.

    That is very good news, but he needs to get this specific data out to the American people to calm the hysteria.
