Quite a few people have been adamant early on that this was just another flu. Then that it was only the frail and elderly that were at risk. And then that the tide has turned and the risk is really low. So I thought I would do a bit of a poll of those that firm in their opinions and see who is willing to lock in their prediction for the period from inception to the end of August (basically the summer). Its about 89,000 as of today. Very morbid, I get that. But so is the implied discussion that deaths are inevitable. At the end of August some of us will get to say "I told you so" and some won't. So let's see who is willing to lock in their view. I'm sure that the loudest will try to say they won't commit because the stats are fake. So let's say that we will use the death total that the White House gives.
