NY hospitalizations down 75%, Cuomo notes that they didn't need the 110,000 beds the models said...more like 20,000. No need for ventilators. Numbers way below even the social distancing models. Numbers low all over the country compared to the predicted models, thank god.

On Monday, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo told reporters that in his state alone, the epicenter of the viral outbreak in the United States, new coronavirus hospitalizations dropped by about 75 percent, from 1,427 four days ago to 358 on Sunday.

Quote:
Jim Malatras, an aide for Gov. Cuomo, reportedly indicated that projections are now showing that New York is unlikely to need 110,000 hospital beds, as previously thought.

The new forecasts show “a much lower demand” that stands in the estimated 20,000-30,000 range, Jesse McKinley, the New York Times bureau chief in the NY capital of Albany, wrote on Twitter on Monday.

That means the new projections for the number of hospital beds needed in NY are between about 70 and 80 percent lower than initially estimated.

On Monday, Gov. Cuomo acknowledged that the drop in hospitalizations in combination with other signs, like the fatalities remaining flat for the second day in a row and a drop in intensive care unit (ICU) admissions, suggest a “possible flattening of the curve.”
All positive stuff


On another note, stupid bitch Chicago mayor puts town on lockdown..then goes and gets a haircut on POSTS THE VIDEO. Rightfully roasted after she called it 'essential'.

That's all really good to hear, hope it sticks.

Chicago mayor is an idiot.

I totally agree,
I hope for you that they are real data but it seems very strange to me

Hospitalizations =/= confirmed cases. Confirmed cases are way more. As an example, NY told some young people with symptoms to just stay home and weather the disease (my niece and her roommates).

MN is telling people to not go in to the hospital unless you absolutely need to and won't test unless you are hospitalized (or fall into another group). The true number of cases (and recoveries for that matter) is definitely MUCH MUCH higher than what is publicized.

Its a good thing the chart specifically says "hospitalizations" then, so as to not get confused.

As an example,... How many more were told to just stay home? Two of her friends succumbed to the disease at home and the city is having over 200 deaths at home daily... (key word=home).

And this is why the response from the government to this has not been good, if this was taken more seriously stay at home/social distancing orders would have been enacted sooner and less people would have been infected, allowing the healthcare system/hospitals the ability to treat all the serious cases, instead this was allowed to spread and infect more people then it should have, therefore overrunning the healthcare system (this is exactly what happened in Italy).

CDC models created in February were saying shelter in place orders should have been enacted in early March, mid March at the latest.

Seems it is less of a shitshow than predicted which is good, but could have been better if it was taken more seriously.

Also just found out my Aunt tested positive, she is in her mid 60's and lives in Rockland County NY, hadn't been feeling well for a couple weeks, just got the results last night, no fever but tired, sore throat and sores in her mouth.
