SO while I slept, and Isolated and did this, 3,438 of my fellow humans died, of those 447 were my fellow Americans.

I want to make a point about the numbers I do not think is well communicated.  Below is a week to week tally of the numbers since I began on Apr 1.

You can easily see the bloom of NYC at the outset, 200 thousand cases a day. As we pass that hump you see a leveling, with a little wobble and slight decline in the rate of increase.  Not a decline, a lesser rate of increase.  This is all due to social distancing and the rural nature of many American locations. There is no significant slowing since the NYC crest, it is a slower increase nationwide.  That means some places are flat and others are nearly vertical.  I expect this to continue for years.

You can see following the infection rates how the numbers decline and then plateau.  Death numbers follow after by about 3-4 weeks which is reflected in the infections lessening but deaths increasing.  This too will continue for years until we reach herd immunity, 70% survived infection or vaccinated against the Pox.  So I expect to see infections rise, then deaths rise as infections fall, and repeat.  If both are rising it is a huge red flag, and exactly that is happening now in many states.

This is not representative of a slowing, but of a Global and National plateau.

Quite a non de plume there. 

This is the second time you have posted for a response, so I assume you’re one of a handful of people reading this in real time.  I will not be saving or posting remarks on this blog, as it is not so much a blog as a simple record for history. A record of what the tsunami of headlines we are all drowning under looks like; what the numbers say, and what, if any thoughts they bring out in me. I do not think my thoughts of great import but rather simply representative of things others might think in this pivotal historical moment.

I am not going to enter into a thread to discuss what I think about your comment, I am not taking time for that as I am not treating this as a blog, but a historical record, with little editing, in stream of thought (S.O.T.), as it impresses upon me. 

Your query is addressed in my prologue in depth. Please do not bother with further comments, I do not have time or inclination to respond. I am too busy trying to sweep up these fragments of history before they blow away in the winds of time.
