National thirty day stay-at-home order, even if Trump’s too cowardly to declare it as a policy.
One takeaway from Jared Kushner briefing: we did not start active response phase of dealing with this crisis until 13 days ago.

From the Strategic National Stockpile website:
Ã¢ÂÂWhen state, local, tribal, and territorial responders request federal assistance to support their response efforts, the stockpile ensures that the right medicines and supplies get to those who need them most during an emergency.Ã¢ÂÂ https://t.co/SsUdoNCHGY

Trump’s letters should be such an asset for the National Archives.
Ã¢ÂÂUndeterred, he has now arrogated to himself a major role in fighting the epochal health crisis thatÃ¢ÂÂs brought America to its knees. … This is dilettantism raised to the level of sociopathy.Ã¢ÂÂ https://t.co/5KzzXGhzEF

Why we need “sociable distancing.” The false duality between dense public spaces and isolated private ones misses the complexity of all the diverseÃ¢ÂÂand relatively safeÃ¢ÂÂurban places in between, argues IMCL director Michael Mehaffy. https://t.co/BeXtO6V5VC pic.twitter.com/X8x3u78XWl

Trump and his Republicans are vulnerable on three counts: failure to act to head off the pandemic, failure to respond adequately to the crisis and corruption in the response https://t.co/FzKI0ZLXf0

In part this may be because NYC is actually reporting COVID19 deaths as COVID19 deaths, not “pneumonia” or “flu-related”. Trump's survival DEPENDS on massive suppression of COVID death toll. Many places, red states especially, will “PLAY BALL” to get funds/supplies. NYC won't. https://t.co/dZWz0GOiPS

Capitalism is inherently fascistic because it is ill-prepared to respond to the people's needs – especially in disaster scenarios – yet is masterful at controlling the narrative to weaponize these failures to blame “the other” rather than the rulers themselves.

If and when the current wave of infections is suppressed, the U.S. will remain vulnerable.
Technically this is not an assumption in the model, but a prediction: Notwithstanding the large number of people who will get sick and even die over the roughly three months the model projects it will take to snuff the current wave of infections, the vast majority of Americans will not contract the virus. This means they will not have immunity against future waves of infection, which could be sparked by cases in the U.S. that remained undetected or by infected visitors from countries where the virus is still circulating widely.
“Our rough guess is that come June, at least 95% of the U.S. will still be susceptible,” says IHME's Murray. “That means, of course, it can come right back. And so then we really need to have a robust strategy in place to not have a second wave.”
CORRECTION: that should read “in 2016…”
