Hospitals Reaching Limits

As hard as it is to believe....

NYT: US Hospitals Running Out of Beds for Patients
WaPo: In nine states, over 1 in 1,000 people have died of coronavirus-linked causes
NYT: Too few specialists to operate ventilators

Horrible situation. One recent study estimated how many Americans had suffered from covid, in addition to those who were tested and found to have had it. The estimated figure was 100 million!.

Perhaps a bit high.

Infection Fatality Rate started out around 1%.

With 250,000 dead that would correspond to 25 million infections.

The lower the IFR the higher the total infections.

Perhaps ironically 100 million infections would correspond to an IFR of 0.25%, quite good news.
