: I don't care what its called all you are doing is spreading a bunch of B/S and spreading it thick!!First of all 256 million is a big number...
Basically what you are saying is "that can't happen because I don't understand the math and the problem just seems inconceivable to me."
That's not really sound reasoning. We are now seeing a second wave in some countries. We have not reached the top of a first wave. There will be no vaccine for at least a year. We currently have no natural antibodies to this virus and no proven effective treatment. If we re-open too soon, that 256 million number could happen pretty easily. It would take 9 weeks if it continues to double at the rate it has been doubling. Hopefully it will slow down considerably, but that hasn't happened yet.
